On October 5th, the Robin Williams Center for Actors had its grand opening in New York City with special appearances by Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg, and the late actors children, Zachary Pym Williams and Zelda Williams. With a smile like his father’s, Zachary was born on:
- April 11,1983
- In San Francisco, California
As the eldest son of one of the most influential actors who’ve ever appeared in Hollywood, Zachary had a strong relationship with his father who passed away on August 11th, 2014.
Struggling with his mental health, the 63-year-old comedian led a successful career in the entertainment industry before he left behind his 33-year-old Zak, his 27-years-old Zelda, and his 24-years-old son Cody.
Although Zak made a few public appearances with his father, Robin’s eldest son decided to stay clear of show-biz and lived most of his childhood under the radar.
After the tragic death of his father, Zak made a few public appearances where he opened up about his father’s passing.
While attending the Dana Reeve Foundation in 2004, Entertainment Tonight spoke with Zak only three months after his father’s death to inquire about how he and his family had been dealing with their loss.
‘We’re doing okay. We’re working hard to build our strength and acclimating to the new normal,’ Zak told ET. ‘A large part of what we’re doing through this grieving process is giving and spending time focusing on others,’ Williams’ son added.
