Robin Williams was perhaps one of the best known comedians in the business. From his voice work for films such as Genie on Aladdin to his work on popular television shows like Mork & Mindy, Williams was found today dead at the age of 63.
Official cause of death has not been released, but per Entertainment Weekly, Mr. William’s publicist was stated as saying he had been suffering from severe depression. Robin Williams had been very candid in the past about his life with depression. Investigations have been launched into a possible suicide.
The latest installment of Night at the Museum staring Williams is scheduled for theaters in December and Robin Williams had signed on to reprise his role of Mrs. Doubtfire.
This is a great loss for both actors and the depression community.
