Film

Robin has appeared in many films, most notably Harold Ramis’ films: Groundhog Day with Bill Murray, Multiplicity with Michael Keaton, Stuart Smalley Saves His Family, and Club Paradise with Robin Williams.

In Groundhog Day, which has been described as a “masterclass on how to live”, Robin had the pleasure to work with Bill Murray whom she describes as kind and generous, as well as Chris Elliot whom she had the pleasure of working with again in Schitt’s Creek.

Stuart Smalley Saves His Family, written by Al Franken & directed by Harold Ramis, although one of the most unappreciated comedies of all time, was one of Robin’s favourite films.

Club Paradise with its cast of thousands including Robin Duke, Peter O’Toole & Robin Williams was shot in Jamaica over a period of three months. “That experience was an adventure” says Robin, “and could be its own movie!”
