`Good´ Frasier star John Mahoney dies aged 77

`Good´ Frasier star John Mahoney dies aged 77”

One sister, who moved to the Midwest after marrying a US sailor, was responsible for Mahoney's decision to make his life in America.

While his character on Frasier, Martin "Marty" Crane, is a gruff retired police officer with a distinct American accent, Mahoney himself was English.

The actor sadly died aged 77 in a hospice in Chicago on Sunday 4 February, according to TMZ.

Fellow Steppenwolf actor Gary Sinise said it was "a great pleasure to know him and work with him".

Mahoney was never married.

Mahoney, who came to the United States when he was 19, served in the Army and worked as a hospital orderly and medical journal editor before turning to acting at age 37. Mahoney won a string of awards for his theatre work.

Russia Develops 'Doomsday' Nuclear Torpedo Designed to Wipe Out US Coastal Cities
In 2016, the Pentagon had planned to spend about $100 billion from 2017 to 2022 to "sustain and modernize nuclear forces". The Pentagon condemned the Russians for developing a "nuclear-armed, undersea autonomous torpedo".

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.

"I give up nothing (professionally) by being in Chicago", said Mahoney, who at the time was preparing to begin rehearsal on a Steppenwolf Theatre Company production of "The Herd". Mahoney starred in the Broadway revival of the play Prelude to a Kiss, as well as the plays Better Late and The Outgoing Tide at the Northlight Theatre in IL.

Most recently, Mahoney had a six-episode stint on the TV Land sitcom Hot in Cleveland and appeared on the British drama series, Foyle's War.

In movies, Mahoney earned recognition in Tin Men in 1987 alongside Richard Dreyfuss. His subsequent roles included the manager of the corrupt White Sox baseball team, Kid Gleason, in Eight Men Out (1988), and Ione Sky's embezzling father in Say Anything (1989), directed by Cameron Crowe.

The Coen Brothers chose Mahoney for the role of WP Mayhew in Barton Fink (1992) because of his resemblance to William Faulkner.

After Frasier, Mahoney returned to Broadway but also had appearances in several TV shows and films, including Dan in Real Life and Flipped.
