Celebrities React to Robin William’s Death
Award-winning actor and comedian, Robin Williams, passed away on August 11 due to suicide. His stunning death left behind many tears, with celebrities around the world taking to social media to express their love for the actor.
Jackie Chan (成龍): “After reading the news [of Robin Williams’ death], I was shocked and couldn’t believe it. I remember when I first came to Hollywood years ago, my English was not that good. At the Oscars, [Robin] suddenly came in front of me and shouted, ‘Jackie Chan, I’m your big fan!’ He said many things to me at the time, but I couldn’t respond to them all in time. Yet, I was very excited, thinking wow! He is Robin Williams! I feel regret that we never had the chance to collaborate.”
CoCo Lee (李玟): “Robin Williams has been my favorite comedic actor since childhood. I’m truly very sad that he has passed away. He has brought many happiness and laughter to the audience. The world has lost another great artiste. His spirit will live on forever in this world.”
Gigi Leung (梁詠琪): “He is unparalleled; the one and only.”
Anita Yuen (袁詠儀): “The sorrow that is behind joy! R.I.P.”
Paul Wong (黃貫中): “I’ve always liked him. Good Morning, Vietnam is his representative work. He had no fate with the [Oscar] award.”
Fala Chen (陳法拉): “This is very sad. He had such outstanding talent, experienced such a brilliant life, yet he left us too early!”
Lee San San (李珊珊): “This is very upsetting news. He is one of the top actors whom I admire and like very much. His works have given me so much joy and happiness. Thank you. We’ll always remember you, Robin Williams.”
Pang Ho Cheung (彭浩翔): “Robin Williams’ exquisite performances have allowed me to understand at a young age that comedy is actually a new change for tragedy. Dead Poets Society, The Fisher King, Good Will Hunting, Good Morning Vietnam, etc. His works are always inspiring and healing. I’ve watched each film at least ten times. They were with me when I was at my lowest points in my life. Have a safe journey ahead!”
Kenji Wu (吳克羣): “He will always be the catcher of spirits. He has given happiness to us all, yet left all the sadness for himself. Robin Williams, thank you for giving us so much beauty.”
Barbie Hsu (徐熙媛): “I absolutely love this great actor! His productions have deeply enlightened my own views in life. Very sorry that he has to leave us! We will always remember you. Farewell, Robin!”

Ryan was waiting for his night flight back to Hong Kong at the time and he chatted with Robin for about ten minutes. Ryan said Robin was a nice person and they took a picture together, which Ryan shared on his Instagram. Ryan said he grew up watching Robin’s films, and was very sad when he heard about his passing.
