Star Of Mrs Doubtfire Has Written A Moving Blog About Robin Williams
Mara Wilson who played one of Robin William’s onscreen children in Mrs. Doubtfire, and also the lead role in Matilda, has written an emotional blog post about his death.
She stated that she quit social media so that she could come to terms with the sad news and has now written about her time with the comedian.
“After one of my friends posted Robin’s ‘impression of a hot dog’ on Facebook, I realised she had no idea that wasn’t in the script. It was supposed to be a monologue where he listed every voice he could do, but he decided to take the ones he’d been given, add more of his own, and just riff for a while. Chris Columbus, our director, would let Robin perform one or two takes with what was written, then do as many more takes as Robin had variations.
Robin would do anything to make me and the other kids laugh. Those hand puppets that dance alongside the genie in Aladdin’s ‘Friend Like Me’? That must have been his suggestion, because Robin made those in real life. He’d break them out to entertain us between takes. ‘I don’t like you,’ his left hand would say to his right. ‘You smell like poop!’ I would laugh uproariously — I was 5, so poop jokes were the height of hilarity — as his right hand yelled back. ‘Well, there’s no toilet paper at my house!'”
