After the death of Angela Lansbury, some Hollywood talents have reached out to her with words of condolence as they remembered the wonderful actress. One of the most endearing tributes came from Murder She Wrote guest star Raphael Sbarge. “Angela Lansbury, for all of us who have had the extreme pleasure of working with her, loved actors,” Sbarge wrote via Twitter. “She really cared that we were taken care of and made us feel like part of her family. She was totally authentic, always kind, and something about her always touched my heart.”
Veteran actor George Takei also took on the role Twitter to share a touching tribute to Lansbury. “Ancient tale, our beloved Mrs. Potts will now sing us lullabies from the stars,” he wrote in part after mentioning her adventures as Jessica Fletcher in Murder, She Wrote. “Hush, great soul.”
Actress Kristin Chenoweth is as much of a triple threat as Lansbury, but she’s probably best known for playing Glinda the Good Witch in the Broadway musical Wicked. “No one really liked Mame,” Chenoweth shared Twitter. “Rest in peace Angela Lansbury. Thank you for your art and wisdom.”
Josh Gad also credited Lansbury’s Tony Award-winning performance of Mame Dennis in his tribute. “From ‘Mame’ to ‘Bedknobs’ to ‘Murder She Wrote’ to ‘B&TB’ to ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ she touched 4 generations. RIP legend”, Gad tweeted.
Lansbury is survived by her three children, Deirdre, David and Anthony, according to a statement from the family via People.
