Zelda Williams and Zachary Williams strike a pose together on the red carpet while attending the grand opening of SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s Robin Williams Center For Actors, Broadcasters And Recording Artists on Wednesday evening (October 5) in New York City.

The brother-sister duo were joined at the event by Whoopi Goldberg, Bonnie Hunt, Hank Azaria, Marlo Thomas, Carol Kane, Billy Crystal and his wife Janice.

“There was a look he had that used to make me laugh, because I knew he was gone,” Crystal said during the panel (via Deadline). “He knew what he was doing. He was an artist,” Whoopi added. “But he could exhaust you. We would both say ‘Just stop. Oh my God, stop!’”

The opening promoted a $16 million capital campaign that will include $6 million for the center and $10 million for the foundation’s endowment.

Robin Williams' Widow Chronicles His Final Months in Heartbreaking Essay

Robin Williams‘ widow Susan Schneider has just penned an emotional essay about the actor’s harrowing final months before his tragic passing.

In the essay for medical journal Neurology, Susan opens up about Lewy Body Disease, the brain condition that led to Robin‘s death, and the struggle to find a diagnosis.

“He kept saying ‘I just want to reboot my brain.’ When we were in the neurologist’s office learning exactly what this meant, Robin had a chance to ask some burning questions. He asked, ‘Do I have Alzheimer’s? Dementia? Am I schizophrenic?’ and when his doctor said ‘No,’ Robin was unsatisfied,” Susan explained, mentioning the varying symptoms that weren’t leading to a diagnosis.

She added, “His left hand tremor was continuous now and he had a slow, shuffling gait. He hated that he could not find the words he wanted in conversations. He would thrash at night and still had terrible insomnia. At times, he would find himself stuck in a frozen stance, unable to move, and frustrated when he came out of it. He was beginning to have trouble with visual and spatial abilities in the way of judging distance and depth. His loss of basic reasoning just added to his growing confusion.”

Susan also recounted her final days with Robin, where the couple shared a perfect weekend together that she had hoped was a sign he was getting better.

Read all that Susan had to say in the Neurology medical journal.

Robin Williams' Daughter Zelda Posts Message on His Birthday

Zelda Williams has posted a touching tribute to her late father Robin Williams on what would have been his 65th birthday.

“Still not really sure what to do on days like today… I know I can’t give you a present anymore, but I guess that means I’ll just have to keep giving them in your name instead.
This year, I tried to help three causes you cared about in one; rescue dogs, people suffering from disabilities, and our nation’s wounded veterans, so I donated to freedomservicedogs.org. They rescue pups from shelters and train them so that they can be paired with someone in dire need of their help and companionship. Thought you’d get a kick out of furry, four legged friends helping change the world, one warrior in need at a time. Happy birthday Poppo. Shasha, Zakky, Codeman and I all love you and miss you like crazy. Xo,” the 26-year-old Dead of Summer star wrote on her Instagram account.

Robin passed away almost two years ago at the age of 63.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Promises Robin Williams' Character Will Be immortalized in 'Jumanji' Reboot

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has officially started working on his Jumanji reboot, and took to Instagram to discuss the late Robin Williams, who starred in the original film.

“An important thing that I want to be honest and bring up is Robin Williams. The love and respect I have for this man is boundless. You have my word, we will honor his name and the character of ‘Alan Parrish’ will stand alone and be forever immortalized in the world of JUMANJI in an earnest and cool way. I have an idea of what to do and I think his family will be proud. I also think Robin is somewhere lookin’ down and laughing, remembering the first time we met backstage and I (for the first time ever) was a star struck bumbling idiot that couldn’t even get my words out. Idiot. He literally calmed me down w/ that smile and laugh. But that’s for another fun story down the road,” The Rock wrote on his Instagram account. “We got a great team assembled already over at our home base of SONY and now we build from here.”

Dwayne also added, “Here’s another fun part… in the original movie there were three big roles. In our new story there’s now FIVE. Been so damn cool to see all my actor buddies push their projects aside so hopefully they can come play in our world. Should have cool casting announcements this week. Will keep you posted. #TheMagicBegins #JustPressStart #JUMANJI.”

Robin Williams' Widow Discusses His Cause of Death, Details Their Last Conversation in New Interviews

Robin Williams‘ widow Susan has given several interviews that came out today (November 3) about her husband’s sudden and tragic death last summer.

“It was not depression that killed Robin,” Susan told People about his diagnoses, with was Diffuse Lewy Body Dementia or Dementia with Lewy bodies. “Depression was one of let’s call it 50 symptoms and it was a small one.”

“I’ve spent this last year trying to find out what killed Robin. To understand what we were fighting, what we were in the trenches fighting and one of the doctors said, ‘Robin was very aware that he was losing his mind and there was nothing he could do about it,’” Susan added, saying that the symptoms include anxiety, delusions and impaired movement.

“If Robin was lucky, he would’ve had maybe three years left. And they would’ve been hard years. And it’s a good chance he would’ve been locked up,” Susan added to ABC News.

She also detailed the last conversation she had with him, when he asked if she wanted a foot rub.

“And I said, ‘It’s OK, honey. Not — you know, it’s OK. You don’t have to tonight.’ And I’ll never forget the look in his eyes of just, sad because he wanted to. And I wished — you know? Then he came back in the room a couple of times. Once to his closet. And he said — and then he laughed. And he said, ‘Goodnight, my love.’ And I said, ‘Goodnight, my love,’” Susan described.
