The world lost a treasure on Monday, as Robin Williams was found dead in his home that morning. The celebrated actor touched countless lives throughout his decades-long career that spanned the genres. No matter what role he played, he brought a thoughtful awareness to each character, and even though we knew it was fiction, we more often than not felt like we could be friends with the people he brought to life.
Although he started as a comedian, Williams went on to touch our hearts in dramas like Awakenings and Good Will Hunting, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He never stopped wanting to make us laugh though, and his last role was his reprisal of Theodore Roosevelt in the third installment of Night at the Museum, out this December.
In honor of Robin Williams' memory, here are 10 of his best on-screen characters.
