Awards Won
I choose Robin Williams because he was an actor that would make me smile, laugh and even cry. And he also taught me the best medication is laughter. Mr. Williams had a great range of comedy and roles. Robin Williams take characters and bring them to life. His talents went beyond limits to make thousands of different voices and impressions. Robin Williams would toss the script away an come up with lines and quotes we will diffidently always remember.
Did Mr. Williams leave an impact? Yes. He left me feeling good or inspired after each and every one of his performances . Just the fact wherever he went or did, he'd bring a smile to us all. One of those things made us all cry,him leaving. But, he's in a better place now. Robin Williams will forever be one of the greatest actors of all time.
