This one really hurts. I’m having such a hard time pulling it together today.
Growing up, Robin Williams was my favourite actor. He brought so much joy to me and it’s so incredibly difficult to think that depression killed this man. It’s hard to accept, yet so hard to ignore. I look at that face and see my childhood. I see my birthday parties at the theatre watching his movies with my friends. I see so many famous characters that made my childhood that much brighter.
This is the first time that a celebrity has died where I actually feel it. I’m having a hard time keeping my eyes dry. I’ve never had the honour of meeting him and not many can say that they have, but today you can really see the impact that he made through the outcry of so many fans.
My heart hurts. Rest in peace Robin, I’ll always hold a special place in my heart for you and the characters you’ve played over the years.
