He was a cross-dressing nanny, an impassioned professor and a hyperactive war-time DJ. With the sad news of Robin Williams death aged 63 from a suspected suicide, we could think of no more fitting way to remember this extraordinary and versatile actor than by taking a celebratory look back at his career highlights and most powerful on-screen moments.
The beloved comedian was a staple of many of our favourite childhood films and possessed that rare ability to conjure up a kaleidoscope of emotions in his audience, with performances that were genuine, moving and hilarious. We cried with laughter at his "run-by fruiting" in Mrs. Doubtfire and welled up as he urged his constrained public schoolboy students to "seize the day!" in Dead Poets Society.
From his breakthrough role as alien Mork in ABC show Mork & Mindy to his Oscar-winning portrayal as a psychology professor in Good Will Hunting, he approached every part he had with passion, humour and integrity.
We pay tribute to this giant of cinema with a reminder of his very best and most infectious movie moments.
