Yesterday brought the sad news that veteran stage and screen actor John Mahoney had passed away aged 77-years-old. The actor was most famous for his role as Frasier Crane's dad Martin on the popular sitcom, a role he played alongside Kelsey Grammer for eleven years, from 1993-2004.

While those that worked with Mahoney were paying tribute to the star on Twitter yesterday, Grammer has yet to post anything about his co-stars death - but we really don't think Kelsey Grammer is a post-your-respects-on-social-media type of guy.

Instead, he simply told People in a statement: "He was my father. I loved him."

No doubt the actor will have much more to say about Mahoney in time, but for now, those words say it all.
