Robin Williams lives on in the conciousness of many cinema lovers for the various roles he performed in during his lifetime. On August 11 2014, he was found dead at his California home, with his death being pronounced by the coroner’s office of the Marine County to having caused by asphyxiation.
Many in the media are terming the death as an apparent suicide but his publicist has refused to acknwoledge this as such, instead stating that Williams, surprisingly, was trying to come to terms with depression for several months now.
His death has come as a shock to the world, because this Academy Award winning actor was only 63 years old. Starting off in television as the alien Mork in the beloved show, Mork & Mindy in the early eighties, he went on to do stand-up comedy, some of them for HBO, before gaining worldwide fame in movies. A couple of his most beloved films are Dead Poets Society (1989), Aladdin (1992), Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), Jumanji (1995), Good Will Hunting (1997) and Night at the Museum (2006).
