- (Reuters) Actor-comedian Robin Williams was found dead on Monday at his home in Northern California from an apparent suicide, Marin County Sheriff’s Office said. He was 63.
His rep, Mara Buxbaum, said in a statement, “He has been battling severe depression of late.”
I am so very sorry to hear of the death of the comic genius. I admired his lightning quick wit and wonderful characters from “Mork” to Aladin’s genie.
I am especially saddened to learn his death apparently came at his own hands following “severe depression.” Please, if you are struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts, be assured that hope and help is available.
Meanwhile, my thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends and fans of Robin Williams.
