Whether it was playing a wild man trapped in a board game, a hyperactive blue genie, an adult Peter Pan or an elderly Scottish dame, Robin Williams had an utterly unique talent for entertaining and was truly one of a kind. Here are our favourite Robin Williams moments in tribute to the man who shaped many of our childhoods, and who will be greatly missed.


Williams played a Peter Pan who decided to grow up and forgot Neverland as a result, but when his children are kidnapped, he needs to remember all the magic of Neverland in order to get them back.



Click on the link to 'You Ain't Never Had A Friend Like Me' for the ultimate nostalgia trip. He was MADE for this role.



No one could have played the wild jungle man lost in a board game for 26 years quite like this guy!


Good Will Hunting

The performance that won him an Oscar, Robin plays a psychologist who hasn't moved on since the death of his wife.

Mrs Doubtfire

Mrs Doubtfire was about a recently divorced man who dresses up as a nanny to spend more time with his children and is possibly Robin's most loved role.

Good Morning, Vietnam

Of course Robin Williams said the iconic line: "GOOOOOOOD MORNING VIETNAM!"



Another iconic film from our childhoods that wouldn't have worked without the talent of Robin Williams.

Dead Poets Society

“They believe they’re destined for great things, just like you. Their eyes are full of hope, just like you. Did they wait until it was too late to make from their lives even one iota of what they were capable? “

…If you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to go. Go on, lean in. Do you hear it? Carpe. Carpe. Carpe Diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.”


Celebrities have flocked to Twitter to pay their respects to the larger-than-life actor.

We think Evan Rachel Wood said it best.
