One sister, who moved to the Midwest after marrying a US sailor, was responsible for Mahoney's decision to make his life in America.

Frasier writer Joe Keenan said Martin Crane provided the show's moral centre.

Frasier star Peri Gilpin led tributes to John Mahoney after the actor's death on Sunday (04Feb18). Before taking up theater and acting in 1977, he served in the USA military and worked as an English teacher at Western Illinois University.

After a brief stint in the United States army, Mahoney became an English teacher, and later the editor of a medical journal.

He died aged 77 in a hospice in Chicago.

Mahoney only began acting professionally in his forties, after he joined the Steppenwolf Theatre Company.

He also famously appeared on The Simpsons alongside his Frasier co-stars, Kelsey Grammer and Hyde Pierce, playing Robert Terwilliger, Sr. - the father of Sideshow Bob (played by Grammer) and Cecil Terwilliger (Hyde Pierce).

John was intensely private about his personal life, but is thought to have never married, despite previously claiming to have been in several relationships.

His Broadway debut, as Artie Shaughnessy in John Guare's comedy The House of Blue Leaves (Plymouth theatre, 1986-87), won him a Tony award.

Mahoney earned two Emmy nominations for his role on Frasier, where his chemistry and bond with Grammer, as well as his other TV son, David Hyde Pierce's character, Niles, was unmistakable.

But it was his role as Frasier's blunt-talking, wisecracking father for which he is best remembered, the BBC says.

The Coen Brothers chose Mahoney for the role of WP Mayhew in Barton Fink (1992) because of his resemblance to William Faulkner.

Most recently, Mahoney played Betty White's suitor Roy on Hot in Cleveland. He was also in the popular films Say Anything and Reality Bites.

His final screen appearance, in 2015, was his first in a British TV drama - Foyle's War, as an ailing, bed-bound former Texas oil tycoon.
