A life-long fan of Robin Williams has scored a viral hit with his impersonations of the late actor.
Jamie Costa - a young actor with a resemblance to Williams - has passed 2 million hits in just four days on YouTube.
In the video, he channels Williams's performances in films like Flubber, Mrs Doubtfire and Good Morning, Vietnam.
Costa wrote underneath the video: "My tribute to the man whose spark ignited my passion. Rip Robin Williams."
He also performs a scene from Good Will Hunting, the film which earned Williams an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.
It recently emerged that Williams made plans to restrict the use of his image after his death. »
Robin Williams died in August, but his spirit is very much alive in the heart of actor Jamie Costa, who is garnering online acclaim for nailing spot-on impersonations of 18 characters Williams played over the course of his career. The South Carolina-based performer not only sounds just like Williams as he channels Peter Pan from “Hook,” Euphegenia Doubtfire from “Mrs. Doubtfire” and Professor Philip Brainard from “Flubber” (to name a few), he looks just like the late actor, from the hair to the facial expressions. Costa’s YouTube video “Never Had a Friend Like Him” has attracted over 1.3 million views since being published. »
