‘I need a break’: Sarah Michelle admits co-star Robin Williams’ tragic death forced her to step away from Hollywood


On August 11, 2014, legendary actor Robin Williams left the world in what was considered devastating news at the time, and it still is. Sarah Michelle Gellar is one of many other actors who worked with the late actor and are still dealing with his death to this day, 8 long years after his tragic death.

Sarah Gellar starred alongside Williams in David E. Kelley Crazypeople, a sitcom that aired on CBS from 2013 to 2014, which was unfortunately canceled by CBS a month before Williams died. Gellar recently gave an interview in which she recounts her time working with the Mrs. Doubtfire star and the little break she had to take after Williams left the world.

Crazypeople was an absolutely hilarious sitcom, and with Robin Williams’ reputation as a friendly co-star, it must have really made working with the actor memorable for Gellar.

Alongside Williams, Bradley Pierce and Kirsten Dunst, who were just child actors in 1995. During an interview in 2020, Pierce shared a pivotal moment of memory during the filming of the film when Williams came to defend him thus than her co-star Dunst when the producers were asking the two kids to work overtime (which is illegal). He remembers-

“Kids can only be on set for a certain number of hours. The producers had approached our parents and said, ‘Is it possible to do a little overtime to do that. This is not uncommon at all in the industry, as it literally saves $100,000 (£73,000) on top of doing that extra half hour rather than a full day.

Upon hearing of the producers planning to have both Dunst and Pierce work an extra half hour, Williams spoke with the producers about it and did not allow it to happen. Pierce go on-

“He said, ‘No, we’re not doing overtime. You’re going to let everyone out now and we’re going to come back next week.

He was indeed a very sweet and caring person, as much as he was a great actor.
