She's Mrs Doubtfire, the star of the prime minister's favourite Robin Williams movie.

The death of the entertainer and actor yesterday aged 63 was a "tragedy," Prime Minister John Key said.

"If you were to list the great actors of my lifetime, I would rank Robin Williams right up there."

Williams was "hugely gifted and talented [and] he obviously had a deep affection for New Zealand," Key said.

On TV3's Breakfast show this morning, Labour leader David Cunliffe expressed his sincere condolences to all those grieving Williams, who he described as a "genius".
