Fans poignantly remember Robin Williams on the second anniversary of his death


Two years have passed since we lost comedian and actor Robin Williams at the age of 63.

He played a memorable role in many childhoods, turning his incredible comic talent, oddball jokes and impersonations to roles from the Genie in Aladdin to Mrs Doubtfire and to Jumanji, Hook, Jack, Night At The Museum, Good Morning Vietnam and many more.

Robin equally captivated audiences in his serious roles, in Good Will Hunting and Dead Poets Society, which earned him an Academy Award and nomination respectively, and inspired a generation with teacher John Keating's words: "No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world."

Fans struggled to believe it has been two years since he committed suicide and paid tribute to the actor.

Rest in peace, Robin.
