If you are a 90s kid, you may hardly remember Robert Guillaume from his role in the widely successful TV series Benson but does Rafiki from Disney’s Lion King ring a bell? The actor who voiced the all-knowing, all wise baboon has died.
Guillaume died yesterday at the age of 89. He had been battling prostate cancer for some years.
According to his wife Donna Guillaume, Robert died peacefully just the way most people would want to go ‘he kinda went the way everyone wishes they could, surrounded by love and in his sleep” she said.
