Just months before his recent death, a 21-year-old terminally ill fan named the late actor on a bucket list of five things she wanted to do before she died… And of course Williams obliged in his own quirky way.
Williams recorded a touching video for the New Zealand fan (Vivian Waller), and in a very Robin Williams way, mimics a Kiwi accent (and even channels Matthew McConaughey), blows her a kiss and sends his well wishes.
“Sending all my love to you, Jack and Sophie,” he says in the video, referring to Waller’s husband and baby daughter. “Mark this off your bucket list.”
Waller is currently in a hospice suffering from lung, bowel and liver cancer, according to The Sunday Star Times (as seen on website Stuff.co.nz). Since she was too ill to travel to the United States and meet Williams, he emailed her family the video instead after a friend reached out to him earlier this year.
Upon hearing about his death, Waller’s family reached out on their Facebook page, calling him a “great man and [an] incredible actor.”
