Zelda Williams

Today marks one year since the death of legendary comedian, actor and voiceover artist Robin Williams, and tributes have been pouring in via social media all day.

Among the messages from fans and Hollywood stars alike was an especially beautiful one from Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress Sarah Michelle Gellar. Posting a picture of the iconic wooden bench in Boston Public Garden which featured in Good Will Hunting, Sarah added a fitting quote from poet Ralph Waldo Emerson.

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of the intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the beauty in others; to leave the world a bit better wether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that one life has breathed easier because you lived here. This is to have succeeded" she wrote, adding "You succeeded RW #RobinWilliams."

Visible underneath the bench are various painted tributes from fans featuring quotes from Good Will Hunting.

Sarah Michelle and Robin starred together in the short-lived CBS sitcom The Crazy Ones back in 2013 – the late actor's final TV role.

The Mrs Doubtfire star was found dead at his California home on August 11th, 2014 aged 63. Suicide by hanging was later confirmed as the cause of death. Just months before his death Robin was diagnosed with the early stages of Parkinson's Disease.

Robin's daughter Zelda confirmed last month, on the eve of what would have been Robin's 64th birthday, that she was taking a break from social media to avoid seeing any negative comments about her father.

The 26-year-old was forced to close her Twitter and Instagram accounts just one day after his death last year after cruel trolls sent abusive messages along with Photoshopped pictures of his corpse to her via social media. Three weeks later she returned with new resolve, writing, "Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim."

Along with Zelda, Robin is survived by his children Zak, aged 32, and Cody, aged 24.

The legendary Hollywood actor Robin Williams would have turned 64 today.

On the eve of his birth date, his 25-year old daughter Zelda announced that she would be taking a break from all social media.

She posted a photo on her Instagram account to inform her followers: "In my absence, I understand there will be those who wish to leave messages regarding Dad on my board," she continued.

"But please attempt to be respectful and kind to one another in the process, both because I will not be here to delete or mediate trolling, and because kindness is in short supply these days anyhow."

Most of the comments left on the photograph are birthday wishes for Robin along with many messages of support for Zelda herself.

This isn’t the first time Zelda has taken a break from social media following her father’s death. In February of this year she spoke for the first time with Today about life after her father’s death.

She said: "It's going to take a lot of work to allow myself to have the sort of fun, happy life that I had, but that's important," she said.

"Anybody who has ever lost anyone works very hard to continue that memory in a positive way."

It is not quite a year since news of Robin William’s death came to light and many still find it hard to believe the man who played the hilarious Mrs. Doubtfire is no longer with us.

Robin’s final film Boulevard is sure to be a tear jerker but the trailer is also incredibly beautiful and uplifting.

We put together a couple of the many times Robin Williams was able to put a smile on our faces.

Actress Zelda Williams has leant her support to a ‘yes’ vote in Ireland’s forthcoming marriage referendum.

“As someone who’s grown up with many Irish people in her life, of every orientation (and I'll have yerr guts for garters if you say otherwise!), I hope their fight for marriage equality is successful,” she said in her Instagram post.

“You can do it Ireland! Make history!”

The message of support was made in response to a tweet from Tony- and Golden Globe-winner Ian McKellen.

Earlier this month, he addressed his “friends in Ireland,” saying: “Vote YES on 22 May and make your country first ever to legalise marriage equality by popular vote.”

Zelda, 25, is the only daughter of the late Robin Williams, who had three children from two marriages.

Before his death from suicide last August, the celebrated actor said: “My children give me a great sense of wonder: just to see them develop into these extraordinary human beings.”

In October, Zelda paid tribute to her father with a tattoo of a hummingbird on her right hand, along with his birth-date, July 21 1951, on her right wrist.

Robin Williams’ daughter Zelda publicly acknowledged her father’s death with a touching post on Instagram earlier today.

She shared a quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s book The Little Prince, in memory of her father.

“You – you alone will have the stars as no one else has them… In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing,” reads the quote. “And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing… You – only you – will have stars that can laugh.”

The quote is followed by a short personal message:

“I love you. I miss you. I’ll try to keep looking up. Z.”

Zelda is the second of Williams’ three children. Robin’s final Instagram post, nearly two weeks ago, was a black-and-white shot of himself and a young Zelda with the caption “#tbt and Happy Birthday to Ms. Zelda Rae Williams! Quarter of a century old today but always my baby girl.”
