Actor Dante Basco has uncovered a touching second he had with Robin Williams on the arrangement of 1991’s Hook. Coordinated by Steven Spielberg, Hook recounts the story of a grown-up Peter Pan (Williams), who should get back to Neverland to save his children from his old adversary, Captain Hook (Dustin Hoffman). The film, which was not a financial lemon by any means, neglected to satisfy film industry assumptions and was generally panned by pundits at that point.
In another selective interview, Basco pondered his job as Rufio in Hook and what it resembled working with Williams. When inquired as to whether he had a most loved second on set with Williams, Basco shared an especially affectionate memory of how Williams affected him at home and welcome in the realm of Hollywood.

Peruse Basco’s full remarks beneath:
Williams’ significant other, at that point, was Marsha Garces Williams, whom he was hitched to from 1989 until their separation in 2010. Basco’s remarks reverberation those of different actors and directors who worked with Williams, including Hook director Spielberg. The Academy Award-winning director guaranteed Williams would hit him to do week by week stand-up routines via telephone during Spielberg’s grueling and emotionally draining filming of Schindler’s List.
