Today (October 24, 2017), American stage and television actor Robert Guillaume passed away from prostate cancer. He was 89.
He was best known for his role as Benson on the TV series Soap, as well as its spin-off Benson. Though I, having grown up in the 90s, best know him as the voice of the shaman mandrill (yes, not a baboon) Rafiki from The Lion King film series.
I feel as if I have lost an old teacher, a mentor, purely because of Guillaume’s portrayal of Rafiki; he was that funny and inspirational voicing that wise, wacky primate.
During these tough times, let’s remember to live by Rafiki’s words of wisdom. They may just reveal your destiny.
