One of those is Dante Basco aka the boy who played Rufio in Hook.
Filled with sadness upon hearing the news of Robin's death, he took to his blog to write a heartfelt tribute to the actor.
Among many more touching words, Dante said:
'Although working with him changed my life, in truth, he impacted me several years before when Dead Poet’s Society became one of my favorite films and really started me being interested in poetry, at which I later became a poet.
I was lucky to work with him as an actor and witness first hand the magic of what made him a legend, the wit and other worldly improv skills. As well as see him single handedly put the morale of a movie set, easily hundreds of people, on his shoulders and kept everyone laughing as they worked long hours for what seemed like months on end…'
Wow. We just can't imagine the pain everyone feels at the news.
It's clear that Robin really DID have a HUGE impact on everyone he worked with.
Bangarang, Robin, bangarang.
