I don’t know about other people, but the first picture of Robin Williams in my mind fades in from Jumanji, yes, the original one. For me as a boy, Jumanji was just a way to enjoy an exciting journey, maybe for some people it wasn’t the finest work of Robin Williams, but for me, it was always the “Alan Parrish” that concluded the movie with a powerful lesson about father and son’s relationship. When I grew up and became a film-goer, I wanted to seek more about the work of Williams and became a big fan of him after watching “Good morning Vietnam” and “Aladdin” but the best was yet to come.
I later realized how a person can perform so naturally in complicated scenarios of “Good Will Hunting”, “Patch Adams” and “Mrs. Doubtfire” If you have not watched them yet, just immediately add them to your watch list.
The long-term comedian and actor would have turned 69 today, who died six years ago, and it’s very difficult to articulate that he’s gone and most of his fans don’t really want to believe it, continuing to make him immortal among them.
He was born in Chicago on 21 July 1951 and committed suicide on 11 August 2014 at his home north of San Francisco, less than a month after he turned 63. His death shocked his fans, and they did not know what happened. Reporters reported he had a major depression and Parkinson’s disease. Yet it was identified that he was diagnosed in his autopsy as having developed Lewy body dementia. This is the second most common dementia after Alzheimer’s. This untreatable brain condition disrupts the memory and gets worse with changes in personality and psychiatric problems leading to death.
William has an Oscar under his belt for “Good Will Hunting” and Golden Globe and Emmy. He’s got 65 wins from 85 nominations. The blog is a tribute to one of my favorite comedian-actor who once tweeted, “Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind,Always”.
