Pierce Brosnan believes working with Robin Williams was ''sheer magic.''

The 61-year-old hunk is devastated following the tragic death of the comedy legend earlier this week, but he is determined to treasure the memories he made with the late star whilst starring alongside him in 'Mrs. Doubtfire.'

Speaking to Us Weekly, he said: ''It is a deeply sad time for us all on the loss of Robin Williams.

''My first day on [the 'Mrs. Doubtfire'] set [in 1993], they said, 'Do you want to meet Robin?' I had never met the man, I was so excited. I was so thrilled to have this job in the company of this great star comedian.

''I walked into the trailer and there was Robin in a pair of Ugg boots, hairy legs, shorts, Hawaiian shirt and hairy chest. That's how I met Robin Williams, and that's how I met 'Mrs. Doubtfire.' And I had the time of my life.

''Every day was just sheer magic with the man. His hilarity, his grace, his brilliance of mind and soul. His reverence, sincerity. [It's a] deep loss.''

However, the former 'James Bond' star is adamant Robin's memory will live on and he will be ''forever'' loved and missed in the entertainment world.

He added: ''It really has cut deep into all our hearts that he is gone and that he suffered in such pain. He will be loved forever and missed forever.''

Robin, 63, is to be laid to rest in San Francisco after committing suicide at his home address in Tiburon, California, on August 11.

He leaves behind his third wife of three years Susan Schneider and his children Zak, 31, Zelda, 25, and Cody, 22.
