Rest well now Robin Williams

Shocked to hear about the passing of oscar-winning actor, Robin Williams who was found dead yesterday at the age of 63. He is a beloved actor and a charasmatic comedian --but those sad eyes have always left me wondering if he was truly as happy as he portrays himself to the world.

I received this quote from a friend this morning and thought it was quite apt since his death is a suspected suicide.

"Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad." -- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

Rest in Peace Robin Williams.

As the world mourns the loss of a comedic voice that spanned decades, TIMES takes a look back at his career and selects five of his most memorable roles:

1) Mork in Mork & Mindy

2) Daniel Hillard/ Mrs Doubtfire in Mrs Doubtfire
(This movie helped me tremendously when my parents were going through a bad patch)

3) John Keating in Dead Poets Society

4) Genie in Alladin


5) Dr Sean McGuire in Good Will Hunting

RIP our darling Robin Williams


Gone to soon
