Remembering Edward Herrmann

The world recently mourned the loss of iconic actor Edward Herrmann.

Ed was widely known for portraying the character Richard Gilmore for all seven seasons of the television series Gilmore Girls.

Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino oversaw witty dialogue for Ed and the cast. Edward Herrmann brought to life the perfect balance of quirky sass and classy elegance as one of the Gilmore grandparents.

The GG cast shared some warm words with the world when Ed moved on.

Alexis Bledel (Rory Gilmore) was quoted by E! as saying, "Edward Herrmann besides being an accomplished actor, he was a true gentleman and a scholar, as well as being an incredibly kind and decent man. He will be sorely missed."

Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore) tweeted, "My friend Ed Herrmann was the kindest, classiest, most talented man. It was an honor and a joy to know him, a devastating blow to lose him."

Kelly Bishop (Emily Gilmore) told TV Line, "We, the Gilmore Girls family, are so terribly sad and somewhat stunned... I have so many fond memories of our time together on Gilmore Girls and since, mainly via email... Everything looks a little dim, as if the lights went down."

The legacy of Gilmore Girls continues through the fans who love the entire cast.
