article imageOp-Ed: Robin Williams could play any character, including a woman

By Megan Woo     Aug 15, 2014 in Entertainment
Los Angeles - On Monday, the world lost a beloved Hollywood legend.
Robin Williams made us laugh and could play any role he wanted, including an elderly, unattractive British woman. Yes, I am talking about Mrs. Doubtfire.
The reason why that movie is so special to me is because of the character he played. He played a man named Daniel Hillard, whose wife filed for divorce and tried to prevent him from seeing his children; however, he did not let that stop him from seeing his children.
Instead, he dressed up as an elderly, unattractive British lady, called his ex-wife who placed an ad for a nanny and got the job. Even though his cover was eventually blown, Mrs. Doubtfire brought the entire family closer together. Each character has changed for the better as well.
What made the movie great was that we saw his serious side, as well as some funny moments.
This was my favorite Robin Williams movie, not only because of the development of the character he played, but also because Mrs. Doubtfire gave hope to those who might be less fortunate. If you want something really bad, you should do whatever it takes to achieve your goals.
Mrs. Doubtfire was one of the greatest movies and characters of all time. The movie was ranked number 39 on Bravo's 100 Funniest Movies of all time.
Robin was such a talented actor, and it’s a shame that we will never have anyone else like him.
He committed suicide on Monday, August 11, due to his battle with severe depression. He was 63 years old.
