Hollywood lost a true legend yesterday.

Robin Williams, an Oscar-winning actor and one of the best stand-up comedians in history, committed suicide at the age of 63, as local police in Northern California discovered the star's body just before noon.

Since the sad news broke, actors and actresses from across the small screen and the big screen have publicly mourned Williams because he left his mark in both mediums.

He broke out on television. He made us all laugh and cry in the movies. And we look back at Williams' most memorable roles - from an alien to a doctor to a cross-dressing nanny - in the following photo gallery:

Those closest to Robin Williams have also memorialized the late, great actor.

Daughter Zelda Williams quoted a book passage on Twitter and concluded by saying she loves and will miss her father.

And Susan Schneider, Robin's wife, released a statement that reads:

I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken.

On behalf of Robin's family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin's death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.

THG sends its condolences to Williams' friends, family members and loved ones.
