Update: Mrs Doubtfire co-star Pierce Brosnan spoke to US Weekly on his time working with the actor and said I walked into the trailer and there was Robin in a pair of Ugg boots, hairy legs, shorts, Hawaiian shirt and hairy chest. That's how I met Robin Williams, and that's how I met Mrs. Doubtfire. And I had the time of my life. Every day was just sheer magic with the man. His hilarity, his grace, his brilliance of mind and soul. His reverence, sincerity. It’s a deep loss." adding ‘It really has cut deep into all our hearts that he is gone and that he suffered in such pain. He will be loved forever and missed forever.’

Zak said: ‘Yesterday, I lost my father and a best friend and the world got a little greyer. I will carry his heart with me every day. I would ask those that loved him to remember him by being as gentle, kind and generous as he would be. Seek to bring joy to the world as he sought.’
Zelda posted the below to her tumblr page and dedicated a moving quote to her father on Instagram:
Cody vowed to carry his father's memory with him at all times until they reunite in death. ‘There are no words strong enough to describe the love and respect I have for my father. The world will never be the same without him. I will miss him and take him with me everywhere I go for the rest of my life, and will look forward, forever, to the moment when I get to see him again.’

Miley Cyrus and President Obama are among the diverse figures who have paid tribute to Robin Williams since he was found dead yesterday morning. President Barack Obama issued a touching tribute to the 'one of a kind' actor, saying...
'Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien - but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit. He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave us immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most - from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalised on our own streets. The Obama family offers our condolences to Robin's family, his friends, and everyone who found their voice and their verse thanks to Robin Williams.'
Elsewhere, Robin's colleagues including Steven Spielberg, Steve Martin and Ben Stiller took to Twitter to share their grief. Kevin Spacey, Robin's Shrink co-star, tweeted...
Robin Williams made the world laugh & think. I will remember & honor that. A great man, artist and friend. I will miss him beyond measure.— Kevin Spacey (@KevinSpacey) August 12, 2014
Sarah Michelle Gellar, who played Robin Williams' daughter in the TV series The Crazy Ones, tweeted a picture montage of the pair. She's since followed it up with a statement about her former co-star:
'My life is a better place because I knew Robin Williams. 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. God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.'
Mara Wilson, who played Robin's Daughter in Mrs Doubtfire, said,
