Robin Williams has died

Robin Williams has died, age 63.
It is currently suspected as being suicide.

:C

He was a brilliant actor, it's such a shame to see someone so talented go in such a way.

Was just about to make a post about this, then saw this.

He was a cherished part of my childhood and I only just found out about this on the news this morning, i'll certainly miss him a lot! Mrs Doubtfire, Flubber, Jumanji, Hook, Good morning Vietnam, Dead poets society....All fantastic films, he could probably make god laugh! :D

The apparent cause of death was suicide by asphyxiation, authorities said. According to his publicist, Williams had been battling severe depression and spent time in rehab as recently as July, and it just goes to show that often it is the people who seem most happy who really aren't :'(

RIP Robin Williams. He was a good actor and I enjoyed his comedy (most of the time). I think the first movie I was him in was Mrs Doubtfire.

I see no reason in suicide

all I know is you just give up
but one should not give up on life, don't let it beat you

well that's my opinion but this was what I was originally going to say

nnnnnnoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo :goldhowl: :o :'( :'(

no not the king of comedy
I heard this morning truly is saddening

when my brother heard he dropped his pastry on the ground with his jaw open and didn't believe me

my mother was shocked about it

but *sniff* *gulp* whew he was a good honest and funny man :-[

RIP mr. robin williams
I will see you all soon
in the future :goldgrin:

reason people do it is because they just cant stand what they are going through. also the lack of support from others around them, lots of people just care about them selves and not others. my school has a suicide about every 2 years sadly..... one of the people who too his own life was the son of one of my dad's friends, and my dad saw what he did to him self.....

I remember him from "Mork and Mindy" mostly.. It is a shame. Not only was he a great
actor, he was a great humanitarian. It's a loss for us all when we loose those who
care for others as he did.

Clinical depression is a terrible disease, it often leads to suicide. According to the news
reports he had been troubled with it for some time.

To tell the truth, I still have a hard time beleiving this news; So much of his work was so lighthearted I never suspected he might be suffering so deeply, but I suppose that was likely part of the problem, his comedic persona making it difficult for people to understand his private feelings.

His passing is definitely a great loss; I always knew a movie was probably worth seeing if Robin Williams was in it.

Very unfortunate indeed :(

Every movie with him was much very enjoyable . I just can't believe such comedian suffered so greatly , maybe that's why he was so great...

Depression is such a monster , leaving you hopeless and lifeless in your own skin  :'( . He was appreciated by such wide of audience, that I still can't believe it that he is gone. 

His passing will be always remembered in our hearts... R.I.P My friend .

Robin Williams was battling Parkinsons, which can result in tremors, impaired co-ordination, stiffness, slowness of movement, a decline in intellectual functioning and depression.

My mate and I heard the news on the radio a few days ago. It stunned us. We loved Robin Williams' work. One of my favorite Robin Williams films (one of the more touching roles for me) was Jumanji.

Quote
"What, are you crying? You don't cry, all right? You keep your chin up. Come on, keep your chin up. Crying never helped anybody do anything, okay? You have a problem, you face it like a man."

Williams dealt with depression for many years. He abused alcohol and drugs and went to rehab multiple times. I had no idea he suffered from Parkinson's as well.  :'(

He was a brilliant actor and will be missed.
