"You're only given a little spark of madness and if you lose that, you're nothing"
The first trailer for HBO’s ‘Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind’ documentary has been released, showing an intimate look into Williams’ career, drug problems and view of himself.
The film will feature friends and family of Williams including Billy Crystal, Eric Idle, his son Zak Williams and comedian Steve Martin who says in the trailer: “He was really comfortable onstage. Offstage, I just felt he was holding himself together”
HBO’s documentary will follow Williams’ problems with drugs and mental health through a series of voicemails left by the comedian. “Every person is driven by some deep, deep, deep, deep, deep, deep secret”, Williams says in a voice-over.

Meanwhile, Pam Dawber recently said that her Mork & Mindy co-star Robin Williams repeatedly “flashed, humped, bumped [and] grabbed” her on the set of the TV show – but maintained that she “never took offence” to the late actor’s alleged actions.
Wiliams found fame in TV show Mork & Mindy which ran from 1978 to 1982 and through his work as a stand-up comedian.
A diverse range of film roles included memorable turns in Good Morning Vietnam, Dead Poet’s Society, Terry Gilliam’s The Fisher King and One Hour Photo.
