The star, who is best known for playing Kelsey Grammer's onscreen father Martin Crane in "Frasier", is reported to have died on Sunday (February 4th 2018) after a short battle with cancer while receiving hospice care.

Actor John Mahoney has died at the age of 77. He was nominated twice for Emmy awards and twice for Golden Globes for his role on the show, which ran on NBC from 1993 to 2004, during all of which his character delighted in puncturing the pomposity of his smarty-pants sons, played by Kelsey Grammer and David Hyde-Pierce. In 1986, he won a Tony Award for his role in a revival of John Guare's The House of Blue Leaves. "Tonight's opening night performance of You Got Older has been cancelled". The theatre invited ticketholders to gather at the venue for a moment of silence.

At an acting class, Mahoney met John Malkovich, who encouraged him to join the Steppenwolf Theater Company in Chicago. This led him to NY, where he won a Theatre World Award for his role in an off-Broadway production of "Orphans".

The character actor was born in England, but moved to the United States at the age of 19 to teach English at a college in IL, according to Variety.

The headline roles of his career, though, were two: As gruff retired cop Martin Crane for 11 years on Frasier, and as another dad, James Court, in Cameron Crowe's 1989 film Say Anything...

Frasier Casting Director Jeff Greenberg wrote the following of the actor:'I've not known a kinder man nor more brilliant actor. He joined the United States army to speed up his citizenship application, and later taught English at University.

He was even more accomplished as a stage actor. On the big screen, he was in "The American President", "Eight Men Out" and "Tin Men", with 2007's "Dan in Real Life" starring Steve Carell among his last movie credits. Throughout the 11 seasons of Frasier, Mahoney carried a cane and walked with a limp.

Mahoney never married and had no children, according to Fox News.
