For so many of us, Robin Williams was part of our childhood through his movies. But for Lisa Jakub and Matthew Lawrence, he was a part of childhood through their work on one of those movies, Mrs. Doubtfire.
Lisa, now 35, played Williams' oldest daughter Lydia in the beloved 1993 film, while Matthew, now 34, played his son Chris. Just as Robin's real-life children Zak, Zelda and Cody were touched by his kind and generous soul, so were his onscreen kids. (You can read the reaction of Mara Wilson, who played Robin's youngest daughter in Mrs. Doubtfire, here.)
In a heartfelt blog post written Monday, Lisa, who retired from acting in 2001, remembered Williams as "an incredibly kind human being." She also recounted the time when, at 14 years old, Williams went to bat for her.
