As one of the millions who have watched and loved films staring Robin Williams I'd like to send out my prayers to his family and join with everyone in remembering this great man.
It was one of the most shocking pieces of news to receive this morning as i got up and checked my facebook feed. Like many i thought no... it must be a hoax. Until i googled it and saw that every well known newspaper in the world seemed to be reporting this news.
I instantly remembered so many of my favorite characters that were brought to life by Robin Williams's particular form of acting genius.
Peter Banning from the movie hook who taught a small geeky child to dream.
Alan Parish in Jumanji who taught me to be careful which board games you played, lest you find yourself lost in them forever. (role play is my own Jumanji)
Then to his award winning drama's,
Dead poets society "captain, oh my captain"
Good Will hunting
And those films that were somewhere in between, humor and drama,
Today i went on a journey of discovery as i found many other films i had loved and never known he was in, like fern gully, or others again i had forgotten i'd seen or hadn't seen at all.
I look forward to discovering all these film gems, and rediscovering old ones.
Thank you Robin Williams
You will be missed.
