Robin Williams

Robin Williams Insomnia

I actually didn’t even know this was online, but following the tragic death of Robin Williams it was bumped up to Empire’s front page once again. It’s an interview I did with Williams on the phone back in 2009 or 2010, specifically about Insomnia for a special we did on Christopher Nolan. It was supposed to sound as if Williams had written it himself, so it’s basically just straight transcript. He was, as you’d hope, a lovely interviewee: quiet and thoughtful and funny and warm. When he learned I lived in Scotland he went into a Mrs Doubtfire accent for a while. Remembering that still makes me smile.
