“I met Robin Williams a few occasions through the filming of Dying to Smoochy. I had my children in as extras, however my youngest daughter wasn’t feeling effectively in the future, they usually had her sit out of filming within the daycare space. Robin Williams got here by and noticed her sitting alone and determined to sit down along with her and play playing cards for a couple of hours.”
“Just a few days earlier than the shoot began, she had watched Jumanji, so the film and Robin Williams had been all she had talked about. On the finish of the primary day on set, we had been standing in line, ready to submit paperwork, when Robin Williams began strolling up and thanking all the households for popping out. When he got here as much as us, my daughter stated to him, ‘You understand what my favourite film is?’ Robin Williams bent all the way down to her degree, and in a infantile voice, requested ‘What?’ She threw her arms out and yelled ‘Jumanji!‘ He began laughing and hugged and thanked her. It was simply such a humorous factor.
I assume he remembered her, as a result of he later spent that point along with her enjoying playing cards, and when he was doing a question-and-answer with the youngsters, he joked along with her. He was implausible on set. He would stroll as much as folks and simply chat with them. He by no means hid from anybody, such as you hear different actors do. Final yr, I had requested my daughter concerning the film, and she or he talked about extra interactions that she had with him. No surprise he was her favourite actor. Such a great man. He introduced a lot pleasure to the world.”
