Jamie Costa has gained popularity on social media thanks to his great ability to imitate various well-known characters. However, the actor whom he has most admired and who imitates perfectly is Robin Williams, who passed away in August 2014
Costa is accustomed to his Vine and Instagram followers to receiving videos with impersonations of him, which include Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones, Michael Caine, Owen Wilson and Robin Williams, his inspiration.
Since his favorite actor died, Costa stopped publishing Williams imitations, until this week when he decided to pay tribute in a video in which he recreates 20 of his best characters.
Costa manages to imitate the voice, but also gestures and expressions, which makes him for a few seconds a young double for Williams.
The two-minute video, titled “Never Had a Friend Like Him,” features Williams characters in “Mork & Mindy,” “Good Morning Vietnam,” “Flubber,” “Jack,” “Jumanji”, “Good Will Hunting and” Mrs. Doubtfire. “My tribute to the man who lit the flame of my passion,” reads the comment of his video.
Although Williams is Costa’s highlight, the actor also manages to imitate Dustin Hoffman very well in “The Graduate,” Jack Nicholson, Matthew McConaughey, Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, and even Tom Hanks as Forrest Gump.
