A video has emerged that shows actor Robin Williams delivering a message of support to a terminally ill young woman in New Zealand shortly before he took his own life.

Williams, 63, was found dead last week after years of battling depression and anxiety. He had also been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease.

According to New Zealand's Sunday Star Times, Williams sent a video message to fan Vivian Waller, 21, who is in an Auckland hospice suffering from lung, bowel and liver cancer.

When Mrs Waller was diagnosed in January, she drew up a bucket list that had five wishes on it: to get married, celebrate her 21st birthday, see her daughter Sophie celebrate her first birthday, travel to Rarotonga, and meet Williams.
