The truth about Robin Williams is revealed by Sam Neill, and it is heartbreaking.

The world lost a brilliant jewel on the day that Robin Williams passed away.

Williams, a well-liked comedian and performer who was almost unmatched, killed himself in 2014 after receiving a false Parkinson’s disease diagnosis.

The thought of the Jumanji and Mrs. Doubtfire star disappearing after ten years is unfathomable. Millions of people around the globe are in mourning over his passing, since his death left an unfillable vacuum in the entertainment industry.


Perhaps the most agonizing part of Williams’ death was how deeply troubled he was, a fact that the world only learned about much later. Despite his outward bravery and unwavering devotion to making people laugh, he had long struggled with internal issues.

Yes, as Did I Ever Tell You This? by Sam Neill described in his biography. The title of “loneliest man on a lonely planet” goes to Williams.

Rumor has it that Sam Neill, star of Jurassic Park, shared intimate details of his friendship with the late Robin Williams. This information is enough to break our hearts all over again.


In his biography, Did I Ever Tell You This?, Neill recalled his collaboration with Williams on Bicentennial Man (1999) and how, along the process, he developed a close bond with the comedian.

The actor from New Zealand wrote in the book that Williams was the “funniest” and “saddest” person he had ever met. The actor recently revealed that he was suffering from stage three cancer.


Neill said, “We would talk about this and that, sometimes even about the work we were about to do,” according to a People profile extract.

“Irresistibly, outrageously, irrepressibly, gigantically funny” was how people described Williams.

Conversely, Neill talked candidly about the sadness he felt beneath his co-star’s lighthearted exterior.

“He was famous, wealthy, well-liked by everyone, had wonderful children—the world was his oyster,” Neill wrote. Still, I had more pity for him than I can put into words.

“On a lonely planet, he was the most alone man.”

Williams was “inconsolably solitary and deeply depressed,” according to Neill, who also claimed that he could sense a “dark space inside from the minute he flung open the door.”

There is no denying that Williams was fighting against forces who wanted to kill him. It was discovered after his death that he actually had Lewy body dementia, despite the fact that his 2014 diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease had been incorrect.

Since 2011, Robin Schneider Williams’ wife Susan Schneider Williams claimed that “almost every region of his brain was under attack.” He could feel his own body breaking down.”

His circumstances were described by her as “a disease with no cure.”

“Robin’s brain suffered one of the worst cases of Lewy body destruction that medical professionals have ever seen, but his heart persevered through it all.”

My heart breaks again every time I learn of Robin Williams’ troubles. A truly outstanding person and a wonderful dude.
