Upon learning of Robin’s death today, I am more grateful than ever that I had the opportunity to meet him on the set of The Crazy Ones. Though Robin had been filming all day, he was the first actor on the set to come over and say hello to me and my friends where we waited. He was quiet, clearly tired , but there was a happy smile on his face that people wanted to acknowledge him. I shook his hand and thanked him for affecting my life and childhood so much. He also took a picture with my sister and signed a friend’s Hook DVD.
A little while later, while I was meeting Sarah Michelle Gellar, I made a joke about how she made me feel tall. Behind me, I could hear Robin bark out a laugh. It’s a memory I’ll hold even more dearly in my heart now.
RIP Robin. You were the best and you are missed.
