The actor was found dead at his home in California on Monday, at the age of 63, with police later confirming he had taken his own life.
A whole host of celebrities including David Walliams, Lady Gaga, Simon Cowell and Ben Stiller have all publicly shared their condolences, while his daughter Zelda announced on Wednesday that she would be leaving Twitter after being on the receiving end of abuse, following his death.
