Robin Williams' and Brittany Murphy's lives were unexpectedly cut short, but their legacy lives on through their work, fans and costars – including Ashley Tisdale, who credits both actors for having a major influence on her life and career.

Tisdale, 29, first met Williams while guest-starring on his CBS sitcom The Crazy Ones. In Health magazine's June issue, the actress discusses the effect the late comedian had on her in their short time together.

"He was one of the nicest people," she says, adding, "Whenever I was around Robin, I just wanted to hug him the entire time. He was just a humble, nice man."

In addition to his personal character, the High School Musical star says she was blown away by Williams' professionalism.

"He was the first one on his mark – he would be waiting for everybody else," she says of the star.
