Robin Williams alleged to have groped Mork & Mindy costar Pam Dawber on set



Williams’ former Mork & Mindy costar Pam Dawber says that he harassed her regularly, a claim backed up by director Howard Storm .

“I had the grossest things done to me by him. I never took offense. I mean, I was flashed, humped, bumped, grabbed. I think he probably did it to a lot of people… If you put it on paper you would be appalled. But somehow he had this guileless little thing that he would do — those sparkly eyes. He’d look at you, really playful, like a puppy, all of a sudden. And then he’d grab your tits and then run away. And somehow he could get away with it."

"I’m standing there watching this and I’m thinking, ‘oh my god’ and I just laughed. I thought she was going to turn and say: ‘How dare you stick a cane in a woman’s ass?’ That sweet old lady. There was nothing lascivious about it, in his mind. It was just Robin being Robin, and he thought it would be funny. He could get away with murder.”

“He’d be doing a paragraph and in the middle of it he would just turn and grab her ass. Or grab a breast. And we’d start again. I’d say, ‘Robin, there’s nothing in the script that says you grab Pam’s ass.’ And he’d say: ‘Oh, OK.”’ He would stand naked opposite Dawber while she was trying to act, in order to make her “blush.”

Robin will be published on May 15,
