"Since his death yesterday, Robin Williams has been memorialized through countless tributes, including Flavorwire’s own. As a performer, however, Williams will mostly live on through his work. A nearly four-decade career has left us with a wealth of characters, running the gamut from dramatic to comedic, stirring to hysterical. Here are some of the roles and performances that meant the most to Flavorwire staffers, from Dead Poets Society to Jumanji.”

The devastating news came yesterday that Academy Award-winning comedian Robin Williams committed suicide at the age of 63. 
In remembrance of him, we are replaying our 2006 interview. At one point, he talks about the dark side of comedians: 

"Oh, they have a dark side, I mean, because they’re looking at that. In the process of looking for comedy, you have to be deeply honest. And in doing that, you’ll find out here’s the other side. You’ll be looking under the rock occasionally for the laughter. So they have a depressed side. But is it always the sad clown thing? No. But I find comics to be pretty honest people in terms of looking at stuff from both sides, or all sides."
