A true genius in comedic field who is also capable to deliver stunning dramatic performances to brilliantly draw many laudations plus accolades throughout his burgeoning career, Robin McLaurin Williams sure is another extraordinary actor to find in Hollywood. Hailed from a well-to-do family, Robin was born the only child of a former model of French descent named Laura McLaurin and Robert Fitzgerald Williams, a Ford Motor Company senior executive, on July 21, 1951 in Chicago, Illinois. Most of his early life was spent in different places due to his father's occupation before the family eventually settled in Marin County, California where he entered Larkspur's Redwood High School to then have his graduation in 1969. Up to this point, he had already been noticed among his milieu for his knack in entertaining people, a natural talent he initially developed either as a solace to overcome his loneliness at home or a proper defense mechanism during his childhood when he was teased by his peers at school.
