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 on Monday, and has been praised by thousands of commenters.
“My tribute to the man whose spark ignited my passion,” Costa wrote in the description of the viral video. “RIP Robin Williams.”
