Iconic actor Robin Williams dead at 63

Comedic legend and Hollywood actor Robin Williams died on Thursday at the age of 63 in what authorities believe to have been a likely suicide.

A spokeswoman at the Marin County Coroners Office told Al Jazeera that police believe Williams’ death to have been “a suicide due to asphyxia.” However, further investigation, including a forensic examination and toxicology test, are pending.

Williams, the star of numerous big-budget films including “Mrs. Doubtfire” and “Hook,” won an Academy Award for his portrayal of a therapist in the 1997 blockbuster “Good Will Hunting.”

The acclaimed actor rose to fame for his portrayal of alien Mork on popular sitcom “Happy Days.” A spin-off of that character became the subject of “Mork & Mindy,” which started shooting in 1978 and catapulted Williams into stardom.
