Fans turn Good Will Hunting bench into memorial to Robin Williams

There have been tributes upon tributes to Robin Williams following the shocking news about his death, announced earlier today (Singapore time). 

Here's another one that's guaranteed to make you cry, especially if you're a fan of the Oscar-winning film Good Will Hunting. 

After hearing the news about Williams' death, fan Nick Rabchenuk headed over to the Boston Public Gardens, where Williams and his Good Will Hunting co-star Matt Damon shot a key scene from the movie. 

 

They met a few other people who were already at the iconic bench, and after chatting for a while, Rabchenuk got out his chalk and his girlfriend wrote the word "Bangarang", the battle cry used by the band of misfits in the Peter Pan film Hook, starring Williams.

“I wrote the line from Good Will Hunting and traced my feet to represent his when he was sitting on the bench,” Rabchenuk told Buzzfeed.

"That one scene on the bench is arguably one of the best scenes of any movie made in the last 50 years. It’s so simple and straightforward, it just hits you right in the gut," added Rabchenuk. 

Others have since added quotes to the area, including another classic line from Good Will Hunting that was said at the bench: "Your move chief."

Added Rabchenuk: “I just hope people will leave thoughts about not only Robin Williams as an actor, and their favorite memories of him and his characters, but also thoughts about that particular scene, and how it speaks to people."
