We’ve already been into the legendary actor’s mind with Marina Zenovich’s documentary Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind. A new documentary titled as Robin’s Wish is out which gives some more detailed insights into the final days of his life.
It was back in 2007 when Robin met his third wife, Susan Schneider Williams. Location was the Apple store in Corte Madera, California, which plays an important role in the documentary.
Schneider Williams told USA TODAY, “A couple of weeks before he died in 2014 I had to run an errand at that very same Apple store. Out of the blue, he came walking in with flowers and surprised me. I looked at him like, ‘Oh, my God, what are you doing?’ And he said, ‘This is where it all began.’”
She also said, “He was the bravest man in the world, playing the hardest role of his life. For someone as brilliant as Robin, who put his heart and soul into his career, to just start losing his abilities … it was devastating for him to watch what it means to be human slipping through his fingers.”
During his final days, Robin Williams used to worry that his performances have been ‘subpar or unusable’ in his final films. “It was getting harder and harder (for him) to get it right, and he was consumed with that,” Schneider Williams says.
“All signs looked like he was getting better. We were in the middle of adjusting medications for his Parkinson’s and depression and had just switched a couple of them. It appeared that he was starting to sleep better, and he seemed more engaged and interested in reading. But clearly, that (wasn’t the case). Robin’s suicide was really a consequence of brain disease; his brain was so compromised. I look at it like, Robin wanted to end the disease – he just didn’t realize that meant he would end, too,” added Robin Williams’ wife, Susan Schneider Williams.
