He developed an alcohol and drug problem while working on the 1978 sitcom, Mork and Mindy.

Robin was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease shortly before his death...

And it is believed that the actor struggled greatly with coming to terms with his diagnosis.

She is now thirty-years-old and she works as an actress, following in the footsteps of her late father.

She regularly talks about her dad...

And it's clear that the pain of losing him is still very much there.

Zelda's brother, Cody, got married earlier this year...

The date was on the 21st of July, which would have been Robin's sixty-eighth birthday.

It was a touching tribute to their late father...

"The 21st of July has meant many things to me over the years... it was the day my Dad was born, and the last day I got to see him. That last one had begun to usurp the joy of the first two in recent years... that is, until 2 days ago when it became something new. On the 21st of July, 2019, it became the day I officially gained a new sister!" Zelda wrote in an emotional post on Instagram.

Zelda hasn't since spoken of her father...

Until now.

Unless you've been offline for the last few weeks...

Until they landed on something remarkable.

The filter landed on the genie from Aladdin, who her dad famously voiced.

Zelda lets out a big laugh out of her amusement at the remarkable coincidence.
