“Guess who? Today, after 25 years, I gathered around a table in the company of three beautiful young people, to talk story about a film that has touched the hearts of so many. Sally [Field] is on tour with her new book. Robin [Williams] is in heaven making the angels laugh and was spoken of with the fondest of love and sweet memories,” Pierce, 65, wrote in the cute pic’s caption, referring to other cast members Sally, 71, and the late Robin, who sadly passed away at age 63 in 2014.
Mrs. Doubtfire told the story of Daniel Hillard, played by the late Robin, who disguised himself as a female nanny named Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire. Daniel came up with the fool-proof (or so he thought) plan in order to spend time with his three children, played by Lisa, 39, Matthew, 38, and Mara, 31, after an acrimonious divorce from his wife, Miranda, who was portrayed by Sally.

Lisa, who played the oldest Hillard sibling, also took to Twitter on Wednesday, Oct. 24 to share the sentimental photo of the cast smiling while sitting around a table. “So this just happened. #MrsDoubtfire #Reunion #25YearsLater,” Lisa captioned the pic. The actress also shared a behind-the-scenes video of the group showing Pierce holding up a camera to his phone which had a picture of Lisa, Matthew, and Mara as children at the premiere of the 1993 film on the screen.
“Here you go: At the premiere of Mrs. Doubtfire and here we are, we pull back slowly, ta-da!” Pierce can be heard narrating the cute clip. “Love you, love you all so much. So good to be a part of your lives. I want to get into the picture as well,” he said as he stepped into the photo. One day before they got together, Lisa teased the reunion by posting a video to her Instagram with the caption, “So I feel like I pretty much live in hotels and airports these days. So hi from another airport,” she said. “I am on my way to Los Angeles and I am doing that because of a certain significant anniversary that is coming up next month and, uh, a couple of fake siblings that I used to have.”
The upcoming 25th anniversary of Mrs. Doubtfire is bittersweet considering the absence of Robin, which is certainly being felt by all in Hollywood. The irreplaceable actor was a shining light for the film, and his co-stars agree. “I am so proud to have been part of that movie and to have known the great Robin Williams,” Pierce shared on Instagram in a tribute to Robin on the third anniversary of the actor’s death. One thing is for sure, the legacy of Mrs. Doubtfire will live on forever — and Robin will, too.
