Comedian and actor Bob Saget, who rose to fame in the role of Danny Tanner on the beloved TV show Full House, died aged 65 on Sunday evening, Florida time.
The star was found unresponsive in a hotel room in Orlando, Florida following a comedy show, and tributes from former co-stars and friends have been pouring in since.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, the sister duo who took turns playing Saget's daughter on Full House, said of their TV Dad: "Bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man. We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us as gracefully as he always has," according to a statement obtained by the New York Post.
"We are thinking of his daughters, wife and family and are sending our condolences."
This is one of my all-time favorite moments with the late Bob Saget. We giggled and set up this photobomb with Sir Tom Jones. Bob was such a kind and funny man, infinitely supportive and sweet. 💔 pic.twitter.com/eAUz6PgON7— Nia Vardalos (@NiaVardalos) January 10, 2022
