Robin Williams (RIP) 1951 – 2014

Robin Williams, a comedian, born on July 21st, 1951 in Chicago, Illinois. He rose to fame with his role as an alien on “Mork and Mindy” TV series. Winning many Academy Awards for his role in movies, he also won Grammy and Screen Actors Guild Awards, as well as, Golden Globes.

A comment made by Williams’ at the 1986 Academy Awards never saw him hosting the event again. Although there is not enough evidence to support that he suffered from bipolar disorder, they argued that manic depression was behind the performances in many of his movies. Almost always the comedian in movies, he has played serious parts also.

At his death on August 11, 2014, he was struggling with major depression, causing suicide and later noted that he also was in the first stages of Parkinson’s. He wore a mask with a smile, yet so sad inside.

Would love a reply
