Georgia Engel remembered by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Betty White, Patricia Heaton: ‘Light is 0ut’
Stars of the stage and screen have paid tribute to actress Georgia Engel, who died last week in Princeton, New Jersey, at age 70.
The Emmy nominee was known for her roles on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and “Everybody Loves Raymond,” as well as broadway hit “The Drowsy Chaperone.”
“A light is out, and what can we do but be grateful for what she gave us,” tweeted “Hamilton” and “Mary Poppins Returns” star Lin-Manuel Miranda.
“Georgia was one of a kind and the absolute best,” Betty White said on Monday through a spokeswoman to the New York Times.
“I am in shock – Georgia was an absolute angel – so dear, so sweet, so talented. God bless you Georgia!” her “Everybody Loves Raymond” co-star Patricia Heaton tweeted. “One of my favorite episodes was when Robert catches Pat smoking – she was just brilliant!”
Another “Raymond” co-star, Phil Rosenthal, tweeted: “To our dear sweet friend, we’ll love and miss you and your brilliant talent always.”
Engel was also known for appearing on “The Love Boat,” and playing Mamie on “Hot in Cleveland” alongside White, who she previously knew from “The Betty White Show.”
