‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ Cast Remember Doris Roberts: “Amazing Lady And Brilliant Actor”


Now that Everybody Loves Raymond is on Netflix, we have to imagine there are millions of people across the country falling in love with the hit sitcom for the very first time. This means they are being introduced to the wonderful Doris Roberts. She played the hilarious (and overprotective) mother Marie Barone on the show from 1996 to 2005.

Sadly, the 90-year-old actress died in her sleep on Sunday, April 17. One month ago, TMZ photographers spotted her going to the movies, and she admitted that she wasn’t feeling great then. You can check out video of the short interview by clicking this link. We suggest you do it. Even though she wasn’t feeling well, she was still making the camera guys laugh.

The cast of Everybody Loves Raymond sent out beautiful statements, and we have them all for you.

Ray Romano: “Doris Roberts had an energy and a spirit that amazed me. She never stopped. Whether working professionally or with her many charities, or just nurturing and mentoring a young, green comic trying to make it as an actor, she did it all with such a grand love for life and people and I will miss her dearly.”

Brad Garret: “I am deeply saddened by the passing of Doris Roberts, an amazing lady and brilliant actor. Doris was vibrant and full of life both on and off the stage, and I am so grateful we shared so many wonderful memories. I will miss her greatly and will always remember her incredible kindness, humor, talent and heart.”

Patricia Heaton: “Truly the end of an era. My wonderful TV mother-in-law and ELR nemesis Doris Roberts was a consummate professional from whom I learned so much. She was funny and tough and loved life, living it to the fullest. Nothing gave her greater joy than her three wonderful grandchildren, of whom she was so proud. It truly was a privilege Doris. I love you and miss you.”

Several other celebrities also jumped on their Twitter accounts to remember the Emmy-winning actress. You can check out a few of the tweets below. It’s clear everyone will miss Roberts. Our thoughts go out to her friends and family.

She was one of the greats…
