Full House Actor and Comedian Bob Saget Has Died Age 65
Celebrity tributes are pouring in for the actor.
Bob Saget, the comedian and actor most famous for his role in the iconic ’80s sitcom Full House, has sadly died at the age of 65.
The passing was confirmed by the Orange County sheriff’s office on Twitter just hours ago. Saget was allegedly found unresponsive in a hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Orlando, Florida on Sunday. An official statement attached to the tweet confirmed that no cause of death had been determined, but there were no signs of foul play or drug use.
Saget was known as Danny Tanner, the widowed dad to DJ (played by Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie (played by Jodie Sweetin) and Michelle (twins Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen shared the role) who enlisted his brother-in-law and best friend to help raise his three daughters. The show was hugely popular, and ran from 1987 to 1995.
Saget also hosted America’s Funniest Home Videos between 1989 and 1997, and voiced the future Ted Moseby in How I Met Your Mother. His comedic routines were often parodies of his on-screen presence as the doting dad.
Celebrity tributes have been pouring in from the acting community, with Full House co-star John Stamos describing the tragedy as heart-breaking: “I am broken. I am gutted. I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby.”
Saget was in Orlando in the middle of a standup comedy tour — he had just preformed in Jacksonville the night prior.
Saget is survived by his wifeand three children. Our deepest condolences go out to his friends, family and loved ones.
