TV star Oprah Winfrey will pay tribute to actor Robin Williams, who died last week, by featuring his old interviews on her own channel.

The Oscar-winning actor passed away aged 63 after committing suicide, reported Digital Spy.

Two classic episodes of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' featuring the actor will be repeated, including his first appearance in 1988 during which he spoke about filming 'Good Morning, Vietnam'.

Williams visited Winfrey's chat show 14 times. A second episode, originally broadcast in 1991, will also be repeated.

The first hour will see the star share "deeply personal stories about filming Good Morning, Vietnam, his early childhood and more".

The second show will see him open up to Winfrey about everything from drug abuse, what being married to him was like, fatherhood, working on the feature films 'The 
Fisher King' and 'Dead Poets Society', his creative inspiration and his thoughts on ageing and turning 40.

Winfrey, 60, also paid tribute to the late legend earlier in the week, thanking him for 'all the great interviews'.
