    Robin Williams, of Mork & Mindy fame, Mrs Doubtfire and innumerable movies and tv offerings: dead at 63

    Here's hoping Orson takes that call.

    My thoughts exactly.
    I should have gone to bed a couple of hours ago - now I have to go with this sad thought in my head.
    Like many others - I loved him (as an actor) very much. :(

    I just caught this on the news, I don't usually follow or pay attention to the private life of celebrities so it was news to me when they mentioned that he was suffering from depression and alcoholism. Just goes to show that all the money and fame in the world may not make your life better.

    Interesting that someone just posted a scene from 'The Fisher King' here a few days ago.

    Granted. I feel an actor is no better nor worse than you or I, (we've all our demons and good deeds) and their job, as actors, and by default their celebrity status, has no more importance nor merit, than, say, my accountant....some perform well, some fall short.

    I happened to mention this one (Robin Williams), as (IMHO), his offerings were vast and talent unique and there will be, sadly, a hole within his field, unlikely to be filled or duplicated.

    There are many things in life that happen, however this one truly shocked me. My heart goes out to his family. They have lost a good man. He was truly one of my favorite actors. An original and there will never be another like him. Class act all the way. He had issues however he tried hard to fight them. I am glad that he will be forever remembered for all his great works of art.

    May my GOD hold you in the palm of his hand.

    I agree - he had a truly unique way of making people laugh and could do improv comedy like no other I can recall, as well as being a convincing actor.

    I'm sure most folks will be saddened by his loss at a relatively young 63 years of age...I certainly am.

    RIP

    The saddest thing is that there are so many people that suffer depression. I had a very close friend take his life two years ago. You would have never expected anything like this to happen. People who suffer inside will usually hide it - and then it's too late. What a shame - what a tragedy.

    Others have pretty much said what needs to be said: shock, tragedy, loss.

    All I'll say is that some people are the bright lights of humanity -- we all have our own -- and Robin Williams was one of mine. The world is paler, thinner place when they leave us. And so it feels today.

    It is truly sad.

    I met him once in a New York deli during the filming of The Fisher King. The cashier screwed up his order and he smiled and was so patient with him. He had the kindest smile.

    Such a tragic loss.

    I believe when one has made their mind up, it is a huge relief has they feel they have a way out of their depression, which of course is final.

    An ex-boyfriend years ago took his life...but before just a few hours earlier, people that saw him said he was exceptionally happy and upbeat.

    RIP Robin. We all love you.
