Robin Williams lookalike honours late actor with epic impressions video

A young actor has paid tribute to the late Robin Williams with a mesmerizing new video, in which he impersonates the beloved comedian in some of his most famous roles. Titled, “Never Had A Friend Like Him” – a nod to Robin's Genie in Disney’s Aladdin – the video has already garnered more than a million views on YouTube.

Bearing a resounding likeness to his hero, celebrity impersonator Jamie Costa flawlessly imitates the star's flamboyant mannerisms, manic energy and unique voices in the clip, while also recreating several scenes from films like Good Morning Vietnam, Flubber, Mrs. Doubtfire and Jumanji.

"My tribute to the man whose spark ignited my passion. RIP Robin Williams,” wrote Jamie in the video description box.

With his frenetic sense of humour and his poignant, twinkling blue eyes, Robin had the rare ability to make audiences both laugh and cry – often in the same film.

The comedic talent was found dead at his home on August 11, 2014 after taking his own life. It was later revealed that the star, who was 63 when he passed away, was suffering with depression and was also in the early stages of Parkinson’s disease.

The beloved funnyman was adored by fans around the world, who flooded Twitter with condolences and tributes upon learning of his passing last summer.

Meanwhile, Robin's three children –Zachary Pym, 31, Zelda Rae, 25, and 23-year-old Cody Alan Williams – appear to be in a good place and coping well with the loss of their father.

Zelda in particular took a hiatus from social media after she became upset by comments left on her accounts relating to her late dad. In September, however, the actress made a triumphant return, writing: “Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself,” on her tumblr page, re-quoting Harvey Fierstein, who had co-starred with Robin in 1993 family comedy Mrs. Doubtfire.
