Although the late Robin Williams was known for an amazing body of work, for Mara Wilson, and many others, the legendary actor will always be known as the lovable Scottish nanny, Mrs. Doubtfire

The 27-year-old, who played Williams' young daughter in the 1993 movie "Mrs. Doubtfire," spoke out about her co-star's recent passing. 

She wrote on her personal blog

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.

More to come later.
