It’s been three years since the late, great Robin Williams tragically passed away, but his memory is still shining just as bright in everyone’s minds.
Taking to Instagram on Friday 11th August – the day of his passing – Robin’s former co-star Sarah Michelle Gellar shared a moving tribute with her fans.
“Robin, we keep you with us this through all the gifts you have left, of which there are many. So today, watch one of his movies, listen to his comedy specials or quote your favorite joke," the actress, 40, captioned a black and white photo of the two together.
“You were a comedy genius, a phenomenal actor and a great friend. We miss you everyday, but today especially,” she continued.
Although the pair only starred together for one season in the CBS sitcom The Crazy Ones as father and daughter back in 2013, Robin still clearly made a lasting impression on the former Buffy The Vampire star.
Others in Hollywood also took to social media to remember the late actor, including Billy Crystal and Pierce Brosnan. “3 years later and words still don't come easily. Think of Robin today and smile,” Billy said via Twitter.
Speaking of their time together filming Mrs Doubtfire, Pierce captioned a still from the movie: ... “I remember this day like it was yesterday ...it was a San Francisco morning on the set of "Mrs Doubtfire" ...a drive by fruiting...I thought we would be there all morning trying to get the shot, Robin nailed it on the second take. I am so proud to have been part of that movie and to have known the great Robin Williams.”
Robin was found dead in his California home, on August 11, 2014, at age 63. His autopsy report listed the cause of death as asphyxia due to hanging.
Following his death, it was also revealed that the star had been fighting a private battle with Lewy body dementia.
