Late comedian’s daughter, actress Zelda Williams, writes heartfelt tribute to her father on Twitter with a quote looking up to the stars
The daughter of late comedian Robin Williams, who died of an apparent suicide on Monday, wrote a heartfelt tribute to her father on Twitter, the evening of his death.
Actress Zelda Williams quoted Antoine De Saint-Exupery’s “The Little Prince” in her post: “You – you alone will have the stars as no one else has them … In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night … You – only you – will have stars that laugh.”
At the end, she added her own words, writing, “I love you. I miss you. I’ll try to keep looking up.”
Williams’ family has asked for privacy during this period of grief. The actor and comedian’s death was an apparent “suicide due to asphyxia,” according to the Marin County coroner. Williams was 63.
Zelda, 25-years old, appeared on-screen with her father in the 2004 film “House of D,” her acting debut. Since then, she has appeared in a number of additional films and television shows, including “Teen Wolf” and “The Legend of Korra.”
