Still Game star claims they inspired Robin Williams' accent for Mrs Doubtfire
A Still Game star claims that they inspired Robin Williams when he played the iconic titular character in Mrs Doubtfire.
Paul Riley, who is known for his role as Winston Ingram in the BBC series, revealed that he worked alongside the late actor in the 1994 film Being Human.
Speaking on Go Radio, the 53-year-old explained that working with Scots led to Williams using a Scottish accent for Mrs Doubtfire.

Paul said: "It was the best gig in the world because there was nae lines to learn.
"You were making it up, just grunting and groaning and Robin Williams was one of the cavemen.
"It took two weeks to film and he was the loveliest man, he really was, absolutely amazing.
"The next movie he did was Mrs Doubtfire and that's why Mrs Doubtfire has a Scottish accent."
