Actor John Mahoney, who played Frasier's Martin Crane, dies aged 77

John Mahoney, the British-born star of Frasier, has died aged 77. The series, a spinoff of Cheers, ran for 13 seasons on NBC from 1993 to 2004. Tributes have begun rolling in across various social media platforms from fellow actors and film industry titans, remembering his great work in television, cinema and theatre.

John Mahoney, who has died in Chicago, was born in Blackpool, England.

In Chicago, Mahoney was a longtime and beloved ensemble member of Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre. On Monday night the company cancelled the scheduled opening night performance of it's current production You Got Older out of respect for the actor. He won a Screen Actor's Guild (SAG) award for this role.

Kelsey Grammer's Frasier and David Hyde Pierce's Niles, both psychiatrists with lofty views of their own intellect, squabbled constantly with their dad but, when needed, the family closed ranks.

The opener combined with his captain Travis Head (44 not out from 29 balls) for a rapid 140-run partnership from just 13.2 overs. With the Strikers cruising towards a massive total, the Hurricanes tried to do everything in their power to get a breakthrough.

Born in Blackpool, England, he came to the United States aged 19 after his sister who was living in IL sponsored him.

"I thought, I'm going to [join] more to learn than anything else, to be on stage with John [Malkovich], Laurie Metcalf, Joan Allen, Gary Sinise, Gary Cole and all these wonderful actors that I so admired.I don't know if I would have had a career had I not joined". After serving in the US Army for a number of years, he became a professional actor. "We were all blessed to have spent 11 glorious years together", Greenberg wrote alongside a picture of the show's cast with Mahoney.

His career in film, spanning more than three decades, saw him appear in movies such as The American President, Moonstruck and Say Anything.

By 1986, he had won a Tony Award for his role as Artie, a starstruck NY city zookeeper, in the 1986 Broadway revival of John Guare's comedy "The House of Blue Leaves". In addition to Frasier, Mahoney also appeared on Cheers, Becker, ER, Burn Notice, In Treatment, and Hot in Cleveland.
