Robin Williams was one of the most accomplished actors of his generation. He was known for his intense comedic talent and adlibbed lines in movies. He starred as Daniel Hillard or Mrs. Doubtfire in ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ (1993), Sean in ‘Good Will Hunting’ (1997), and Allan Parrish in ‘Jumanji’ (1995).

Robin Williams was fanatic about the Nintendo-developed fantasy action-adventure video game ‘Legend of Zelda’ that he even named his child Zelda.

Before becoming famous, he was voted ‘Least Likely to Succeed’ by the other graduates from Redwood Highschool in Larkspur, California. This comedy actor has formed an interesting friendship with The Gorilla Foundation’s Koko the Gorilla after they had shown him one of Williams’ movies. The actor visited the gorilla one day and it recognized the actor.
