Cast of Hook Reunites and Talks About Robin Williams

The Cast of Hook Reflects on the Loss of Robin Williams: "It Was the Death of Our Childhood"

It might be hard to believe, but it's been 25 long years since Robin Williams first flew into theaters as a grown-up Peter Pan in Hook. Between his trademark charisma and a truly enchanting story, the film became an instant classic. Although it's been a while, the actors who played the movie's Lost Boys finally reunited to share some special, personal stories about working with the legendary actor two years after his tragic passing. "He kept the set very alive," James Madio, who played Don't Ask, told Entertainment Tonight in an exclusive interview on Wednesday. "He made sure that he had a relationship with each and every one of us."

For Dante Basco, who appeared in Hook as Rufio (who we're still crushing on, by the way), Williams's death hit him very personally, saying, "I think for all of us [Robin's death] was the death of our childhood. There's sadness there; also there's a lot of space to kinda celebrate one of the most legendary artists of our time." Watch the video above to hear every incredible memory from the cast, and then see what Williams's former costar Matt Damon recently had to say about him.
