Mara Wilson, best known for her role as Natalie Hillard in Mrs. Doubtfire broke her silence on Thursday regarding the death of Robin Williams.

Wilson, who played Robin’s daughter in the classic 90’s flick, wrote a lengthy blog post expressing her emotion and pain following the death of her late co-star.

“Everybody grieves in their own way. When I heard about Robin’s death, I was shocked, confused angry, regretful, and above all, sad. All I wanted was to talk to my family and friends and cry. A few news outlets asked if I would be willing to talk about him on the air, and while I usually like interviews, I knew I wasn’t in a good place to do that. I still (a whole three days later) don’t want to do any. It’s too soon, and I need my own time to process it all. I will, however, be sharing some of my memories about him on this blog sometime soon.” 

“While Robin and I had not talked in a few years, there is no question he had a great impact on my life. He was as warm and talented as everyone says, and a joy to be around. It’s as if my favorite teacher died.”

Williams died on Monday, August 11, 2014 in his Northern Ca. home. He was 63. Officials confirmed on Tuesday that the “preliminary results of the forensic examination revealed supporting physical signs that Mr. Williams’ life ended from asphyxia due to hanging.”
