The daughter of late actor Robin Williams has spoken out about losing her father in her first interview since his death.

Zelda Williams, 25, sat down with NBC’s Kate Snow and shared her experience of losing her much-loved father.

“You know, it’s taking it one step at a time. The world keeps spinning," she said.

"A lot of people feel his absence."

Zelda also told the news network that she is not questioning why her father decided to end his life.

“I don’t think there’s a point,” she said. “It’s not important to ask.”

Robin’s daughter also said that she hoped people would remember him for “the characters that he had so much fun being, and that's what's important, and I do think that's what a lot of people will hold on to and that's not going anywhere."

Zelda has payed tribute to her father by getting a tattoo of a hummingbird.

“Hummingbirds are fun and flighty and strange. It's hard to keep them in one place and Dad was a bit like that," she explains.

"Keeping a conversation in one moment was impossible with him.”
