A Tribute to Robin Williams

Laughter was Robin Williams’ best prescription for the world as the actor was not just a movie star on the big screen, but also a comedian that everyone came to know and love. He came into our lives, saw what the world needed, and conquered us with his jokes and hilarious voice-acting. He was more than just a famous face in Hollywood. He was a family man; a loving husband, a doting dad, and a friend to everyone who knew him. He achieved so much but he left the world too soon.

Robin Williams’s Incredible Career and Personal History

Date and Place of Birth: July 21, 1951 in Chicago, Illinois

Williams was born to a wealthy family in Chicago. In 1968, he moved to San Francisco with his parents when he was a teenager. Williams kickstarted his career in the world of comedy as a stand-up comedian and eventually became one of America’s leading performers after completing his enrolment at the Juilliard School in New York City. There, he became friends and roommates with fellow actor Christopher Reeve. Williams worked hard at his career and allowed his reputation to grow by word-of-mouth among comedy experts. With the influence of Richard Pryor and Jonathan Winters, Williams excelled, remembering everything he had seen on television when he was a child and fed it to his audience in short bursts.

But his fame did not come from comedy alone. His portfolio also included a wide range of funny movies, serious films, and voice-acting for several animation and cartoons. He played an alien character called Mork in a widely known TV series Mork and Mindy. In 1980, Williams made his debut on the big screen in a lead role as the famous spinach-eating sailor in Popeye. A string of successful movies followed and showcased his stellar comedic talents and his ability to take on serious work. Below are some of his famous movies that we are familiar with: ‘Hook‘ (1991), ‘Aladdin – as the voice of the genie‘ (1992), ‘Mrs Doubtfire‘ (1993), ‘Jumanji‘ (1995), ‘Flubber‘ (1997), ‘Good Will Hunting‘ (1997), ‘Patch Adams‘ (1998), ‘Bicentennial Man‘ (1999), ‘A.I.: Artificial Intelligence – as the voice of Dr. Know‘ (2001), ‘Robots – as the voice of Fender‘ (2005), ‘Night at the Museum, and Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian – as Teddy Roosevelt‘ (2006), ‘RV‘ (2006), and ‘Happy Feet, and Happy Feet 2 – as the  voice for Ramon/Lovelace‘ (2006).

Robin Williams Movies

Despite a shining career, Williams suffered from a number of setbacks, mostly in his personal life. He developed a drug and alcohol addiction and struggled with it for more than two decades. He also became involved in several tumultuous romantic relationships. While being married to actress Valerie Velardi who bore him a son called Zachary, he was seeing other women. Williams and Velardi divorced in 1988 and married his son’s nanny, Marsha Garces the following year, with whom he had daughter Zelda and son Cody. In 2006, Williams suffered a drug relapse and checked himself into rehab in August. Health problems derailed the comedian in 2009, occasionally causing the actor to have a shortness of breath which led to a string of cancelled performances and resulted in a heart surgery.

For many years, Williams continued with his acting career and stand-up comedy acts. For many years, he battled severe depression and struggled with his drug and alcohol addiction. Suddenly as if by fate, his problems went away. On August 11, 2014, the 63-year-old actor-comedian was found dead in his California home. A press release issued on August 12 stated that the preliminary results of the forensic examination revealed that Mr. Williams ended his life by hanging himself. A pocket knife was discovered at the scene and several cuts were found on his left wrist. Williams’ current wife Susan Schneider disclosed in her statement that her husband had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a disorder that affects the nervous system that progresses over time and affects an individual’s speech and movement.

So let’s take a minute of silence to remember the man who brought us so much joy and laughter every time we watched his movies. Let’s remember the man as the happy-go-lucky actor with a wicked sense of humour. Let’s put him in our memories his greatest legacy, his three wonderful children, and the happiness he offered to others through his movies and particularly to those with similar personal struggles and health battles.

Transformers 4: Age of Extinction

Are you ready to roll out with the Autobots to battle alongside Optimus Prime and his team to defend Earth from Megatron and the Decepticons? Because the moment you have all been waiting for has landed on the 26th of June, brought to you by Hasbro and director Michael Bay!

Don’t wait until the last minute to get your tickets.

Word has it that Michael Bay, director of the Transformers franchise, has included a new addition to the latest sequel of Transformers. We don’t want to spoil the party for you but I’m sure you have seen the trailer in the cinemas on who this latest addition in the movie is (psst, they’re the good guys, they’re robots too, and it starts with a ‘D’!) There has also been some changes to the cast, particularly the lead roles for both male and female. Shia LaBeouf and Rosie Huntington-Whitely have been dropped in favour for Mark Wahlberg (Cade Yeager) and Nicola Peltz (she plays Wahlberg’s daughter, Tessa). Megan Fox had previously appeared in the first and second Transformers movies, alongside Shia LaBeouf and Josh Duhamel. Eventually, in the third Transformers instalment, Rosie Huntington-Whitely had taken Fox’s spot as the leading lady of the movie. Personally, I’d have preferred Megan Fox to carry on the Transformers legacy. Huntington-Whitely had the tendency to scream throughout the movie and was an annoying damsel in distress. But hey, that’s my opinion. Now in the fourth instalment, both LaBeouf and Huntington-Whitely have been replaced with Wahlberg and Peltz. Even Duhamel’s name has disappeared from the list!

An excerpt of the movie synopsis taken from IMDb:

After defeating Sentinel Prime and Megatron’s army in Chicago, the Autobots have gone into hiding after the government deemed all transformers as threats, and thus, began to hunt them all down. The government has thus replaced the Autobots with their own transformers using technology from the fallen transformers. Meanwhile, a mechanic, his daughter, and his daughter’s boyfriend become dragged into the conflict upon discovering Optimus Prime in their possession, and all the while, a mysterious new enemy, Lockdown, sets his eyes on earth.

This constant swapping of actors and actresses is quite a chore. Yet, keeping up with the ins and outs of Autobots and Decepticons is equally tedious! I, for one, can only recall Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Megatron. What about you?

Tell us:

  1. What do you remember about the past three Transformers movies?
  2. How did you feel when your favourite character was replaced by a new individual?
  3. Who do you support: Autobot or Decepticon?
