Robin Williams’ daughter says she cannot watch his films yet

Beloved actor passed away in August 2014 at the age of 63

Robin Williams’ daughter has revealed that she is not ready to watch her father’s classic film and TV performances yet.

Zelda Williams, an actress and director who recently shot JoJo’s music video for ‘Save My Soul’, explained that it would be “self-destructive” at the moment for her to revisit much-loved movies like Mrs Doubtfire, Good Morning Vietnam and Good Will Hunting.

“I think once I reach a place where I’m more comfortable, I’ll happily watc again,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “Right now, I think that would be a bit self-destructive, in a sense. It’s been nice to kind of work on myself and my family and the people who are here.”

Zelda, 26, also explained that she tries to go about her life in a fashion her father would approve of. “A lot of what I try to do is interact with the world the way he did,” she said. “He didn’t care who someone was, he did a lot of work with the homeless, he did a lot of work with people in prison, as my mum does now, and he was always kind. It meant a lot to him, so I kind of hope to, if nothing else, be that.”

Robin Williams died on August 11, 2014 at the age of 63. His widow Susan has since said that if her husband had not taken his own life, he would only have had “maybe three years left” because he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and was showing signs of a degenerative condition called Lewy Bodies Dementia.

In November, it was reported that the actor stated in his will that his vocal out-takes from classic Disney film Aladdin cannot be used in a future sequel.
