It's been almost a year since beloved actor Robin Williams died at the age of 63. But even though he's gone, he continues to entertain us in television reruns, classic films and even new releases.

Williams' final on-screen performance, in "Boulevard," will soon hit theaters, and co-star Kathy Baker stopped by TODAY Tuesday to share what it was like working with the embattled funnyman and dramatic star.

"He was just professional," Baker recalled. "He was focused. He was ... you know, he was funny the way people are, but he wasn't doing Mork or anything."

In short, the Oscar winner was simply an actor fully invested in his work.

"He was very concerned after every take," she said. "Was I happy? Did I want another take? 'Did you get what you wanted?' He loved the movie, was very into it. ... He was very proud it."

In "Boulevard," Williams and Baker play a married couple united by love and friendship, but divided by his sexual orientation.

"He breaks [their] bargain when he meets somebody," she said of the drama at the center of the plot.

Baker added that Williams was "very concerned we got the marriage part of it right."
