Christopher Reeve quote about meeting Robin Williams

Christopher Reeve and Robin Williams

“He wore tie-dyed shirts with track suit bottoms and talked a mile a minute. I’d never seen so much energy contained in one person. He was like an untied balloon that had been inflated and immediately released. I watched in awe as he virtually caromed off the walls of the classrooms and hallways. To say that he was “on” would be a major understatement.”

– Christopher Reeve, about meeting Robin Williams at Juilliard. Out of the twenty students in their class, they were the two selected to take part in the Advanced Program, where they developed a close friendship that would last until Christopher passed away.
