R.I.P John Mahoney


As some of you may know, NBC’s Fraiser (1993-2004) is one of my favourite tv shows of all time, and so it is with a heavy heart I learn of the news of the death of actor John Mahoney, who portrayed Frasier’s father Martin Crane for 11 years. Mahoney’s role in Frasier earned him worldwide praise and recognition, but Mahoney also worked frequently as a voice actor, starring in Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001),  Antz (1998), and The Simpsons (1989-Present). I’ve always felt that when an actor dies, the character dies with them, and so I’ll not only be morning a fine actor who played such a pivotal role in a truly great show, but a wonderfully funny character. As always, our thoughts are with Mahoney’s friends, family, and legions of fans.
