Robin Williams was one of the best comedians and actors of all time. While he sadly passed away in 2014, his legacy lives on in his work and children.
Robin Williams has three children; Zachary, Zelda, and Cody. However, it is his only daughter, Zelda, who is following in his Hollywood footsteps.
At just 29 years old, she already has a thriving acting career as well as being a voice artist on the game she was named after, “The Legend of Zelda.”
When she was a child, Zelda would often join her father on the red carpet for his film premieres. She also frequently visited film sets, which allowed her to start networking from a young age.
Zelda wanted to be a child actress, but her father only supported her dream to a certain extent. While he had no problem with her starting her acting career young, he did not want her to become a child star.
Robin Williams committed suicide in 2014, which prompted Zelda to become an activist for mental health awareness.
She has many credits both in film and television including “Teen Wolf,” “Criminal Minds,” “Never,” and “Detention.”
While Zelda may be the only Williams sibling with both an acting and directing career, her brother Zachary is truly making a difference in the world. His passion is righting socio-economic wrongs in society.
At San Quentin State Penitentiary, he works with inmates to teach them financial literacy skills. He hopes this will stop them from committing petty crimes for money.
He hopes to teach the inmates that they can achieve financial success by making an honest living.
