It’s a sad day in Hollywood as news of Robin Williams death hits the public. Williams leaves behind a family who loved him and millions of devoted fans who will never forget him. Read on for the facts on Robin’s daughter Zelda.
UPDATE: Zelda has released a statement about her father’s death:
Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence.

3. Zelda’s Boyfriend Is Actor Jackson Heywood
In the past, Zelda has been romantically linked to Arrow actor Colin Donnell, but her Instagram is full of photos with actor Jackson Heywood (pictured above). Daily Mail reports:
The pair have kept their relationship on the down low, though a series of cute couple snaps on social media and appearances together at events make it clear that they are an item. The pair kept close at a Tiffany & Co Atlas soiree at the Chateau Marmont’s Penthouse in Los Angeles on Tuesday, and looked absolutely smitten as they smiled for the cameras.
