I’m a big fan of Dead Poets society so when I heard what Ethan Hawke said about Robin Williams I was shocked.
During a Q&A session for the Karlovy International Film Festival in Czech Republic, Ethan Hawke brought up some memories of working with Robin Williams on the set of Dead Poets Society. “‘I thought Robin hated me. He had a habit of making a ton of jokes on set. At 18, I found that incredibly irritating. He wouldn’t stop and I wouldn’t laugh at anything he did.”
According to Deadline, as Ethan reminisced about his time with the late actor Robin Williams he went on to say, “there was this scene in the film when he makes me spontaneously make up a poem in front of the class. Robin made this joke at the end of it, saying that he found me intimidating.”
Ethan Hawke who’s now a father of four went on to mention in hindsight, he now sees his teen-angsty experience filming “Dead Poets Society” like a grown man.
