Sarah Michelle Gellar Eulogizes Robin Williams, Says He Was Father She ‘Dreamed Of Having’ & Tweets Touching Photo Collage

While tributes to Robin Williams continue to pour in, perhaps one of the most touching came from Williams’ on-screen daughter, Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Gellar, who played Williams’ daughter on CBS’ The Crazy Ones, released a statement paying tribute to her on-screen dad who died yesterday of an apparent suicide.

In a statement to, Gellar writes:

“My life is a better place because I knew Robin Williams,” Gellar said. “To my children he was Uncle Robin, to everyone he worked with, he was the best boss anyone had ever known, and to me he was not just an inspiration but he was the Father I had always dreamed of having. There are not enough adjectives to describe the light he was, to anyone that ever had the pleasure to meet him. I will miss him everyday, but I know the memory of him will live on. And to his family, I thank them for letting us know him and seeing the joy they brought him. Us crazy ones love you.”

In addition to the statement, Gellar also tweeted a photo collage of her and Williams.


Williams was 63.
