She can hip-hop, be-bop, dance till ya drop, and yo yo, make a wicked cup of cocoa.

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.  

He would be remembered as a great actor who could play both serious and humourous roles.

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".
