The Best Robin Williams Characters

Updated August 9, 2019 521 votes 19 voters65 items

As one of the funniest and most loved comedic actors of all time, Robin Williams began his career as Mork, the quirky, offbeat extraterrestrial from the distant planet Ork. It’s slightly fitting considering Williams modeled his entire career off of being extraordinary. He’s immortalized some of the greatest characters in film and TV history and has left behind a legacy few actors can match on screen or off.

From John Keating in Dead Poets Society, Peter Pan in Hook, Euphegenia Doubtfire in Ms. Doubtfire, and the lovable Genie in Aladdin, this list of Robin Williams characters includes every one of the late actor’s best roles - even some of his lesser-known ones. Which of his characters is your all-time favorite?
