The world has been deeply shocked and saddened by Robin Williams’ death, and while the tributes have been pouring in for the late actor, the most touching tribute comes from his daughter Zelda.
The Noobz actress and her dad were known to have been close, and she took to social media to pay tribute to her beloved father by sharing a quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s book The Little Prince.

“You — you alone will have the stars as no one else has them…” she wrote on both Instagram and Twitter on the early hours of Tuesday morning. “In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night… You — only you will have stars that can laugh.”
“I love you. I miss you. I’ll try to keep looking up, Z,” she added.
Zelda’s heartfelt tribute comes just hours after her father Robin Williams was found dead at his home in Tiburon, California, from an apparent suicide.
The actor’s last Instagram update on July 31, was dedicated to his daughter on her birthday. He wrote, “#tbt and Happy Birthday to Ms. Zelda Rae Williams! Quarter of a century old today but always my baby girl. Happy Birthday @zeldawilliams Love you!”
The Mrs. Doubtfire actor was a loving and dedicated family man, and aside from his daughter Zelda, with whom he shares with second wife, Marsha Garces, he also has two sons, Cody Williams and Zachary Williams, from his first marriage to Valerie Velardi.
