Doris Roberts, who died on Sunday at the age of 90, took her first TV role in 1951 and never really stopped. For over six decades, she illuminated films and television shows with wit and glamor, crossing paths with hundreds of actors and comedians.
In the wake of her passing, they have been effusive in their tributes. They recalled not only her talent — as a comic and as a thespian — but also “her energy and spirit” offstage, as Ray Romano, her co-star on Everybody Loves Raymond, wrote in a statement.
“Whether working professionally or with her many charities, or just nurturing and mentoring a green young comic trying to make it as an actor, she did everything with such a grand love for life and people and I will miss her dearly,” Romano wrote.
Twitter and Facebook, too, were predictably ablaze:
