In one of the newspaper articles reporting his passing he was quoted about the difficulties of acting as a profession,
“You’re hot, then you’re not. When you’re hot, people throw themselves at you. I once got stopped by a cop: ‘Hi, Mr. Williams. I’m not going to give you a ticket, but I do have an idea for a film.’
And when you’re not hot: “People walk away from you.”
I can't believe people walked away from Robin Williams.
I mean, seriously?
If I had ever seen him, and it had been even remotely appropriate, I'd have walked up to him, given him the 'Na-nu Na-nu' hand sign from Mork and Mindy and said, 'O' Captain, My Captain.'
I LOVED Dead Poet's Society and I would loved to have met Robin Williams.
But now, I'll never get that chance.
Depression is an evil disease.
Robin Williams, thank you for the laughter and the joy you shared. You touched the hearts of many and I will miss all you inspired.
Rest in Peace.
