Frasier Actor John Mahoney Has Died At The Age Of 77…

John Mahoney

Mahoney played Martin Crane, the cantankerous father of Grammer's Frasier and David Hyde Pierce's Niles, in the popular NBC during its 11 season run from 1993 through 2004.

The star of the hit television sit-com Frasier, John Mahoney, has died aged 77, according to his publicist.

While "Frasier" was his most important TV appearance, earning him Emmy and Golden Globe nominations, he has also appeared in "3rd Rock from the Sun", "ER", "In Treatment", "Hot in Cleveland" and most recently "Foyle's War".

He frequently appeared on stage with Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre and in 1986 won a Tony Award for his Broadway performance in John Guare's The House Of Blue Leaves, playing a zookeeper with ambitions of becoming an actor.

The Steppenwolf canceled Monday's scheduled performance in honor of Mahoney. We are instead inviting all to gather in Front Bar this evening. Even as his fame grew through his fantastic work in movies and television, John stayed connected to his artistic home here in Chicago in theaters and as a member of the Steppenwolf Theatre Company.

Born in Blackpool, England, he came to the USA aged 19 after his sister who was living in IL sponsored him. Mahoney had been in hospice care, with an undisclosed illness.

Frasier Casting Director Jeff Greenberg wrote the following of the actor:'I've not known a kinder man nor more brilliant actor. "We were all blessed to have spent 11 glorious years together".

He moved to the U.S. as a teenager, joining the military which helped him become an American citizen.

Peri Gilpin, who played Roz Doyle in Frasier, tweeted a photo of Mahoney singing at her wedding.

Mahoney was intensely private about his personal life, but is thought to have never married, despite previously claiming to have been in several relationships.

His first major big screen role was in 1987's Tin Men, directed by Barry Levinson; he was also in Moonstruck that year, and both Frantic and Eight Men Out in 1988.
