‘Night Court’ actor Harry Anderson has died at the age of 65. Time
John Larroquette summed up his feelings about the loss of fellow Night Court star Harry Anderson in one word Monday.
“Heartsick,” Larroquette tweeted.
Anderson, 65, was found dead in his North Carolina home by police Monday morning. The loss of the actor who played Night Court‘s good-natured Judge Harry Stone from 1984 to 1992 brought out tributes from former cast members and stars.
Marsha Warfield, who came onto Night Court in 1986 as the show’s third bailiff, Rosalind Russell, left a tearful video on her Facebook page filmed in the front seat of her car after hearing the sad news.
“I didn’t know I was going to be this emotional or I wouldn’t have started this video,” said Warfield, barely holding back tears.
“Harry was a good man, a good friend, he was good to me when I first got on Night Court,” Warfield said. “Harry was the first one to reach out and offer me advice, and any help I needed. And I needed a lot at that time.”
Warfield said she was going to head home and try “to process” the passing.
“I hope his family is comforted in knowing that he was so very loved, and so very talented,” she said in closing. “I’m going to miss you, Harry. Harry the Hat. Rest in peace.”
Markie Post, who played Christine Sullivan on Night Court, couldn’t pull together a tribute because she was too emotional. She said she would talk more later, “but for now, I’m devastated.”
Neil Patrick Harris was “stunned” by the death of fellow magician Anderson, who worked at Los Angeles’ Magic Castle. Harris called him “one of my comedy and magic inspirations growing up.”
Producer Judd Apatow wrote about being 15 and interviewing the star Anderson.
“He was so kind, and frank and hilarious,” Apatow wrote. “He was a one of a kind talent who made millions so happy.”
