John Cusack, who appeared with Mahoney is the 1989 film "Say Anything", tweeted that he was a great actor and a "lovely kind human - any time you saw him you left feeling better".

He won a SAG Award and received two Emmy and two Golden Globe nominations for his work on 'Frasier'. Most widely recognized as the face of Kelsey Grammer and David Hyde Pierce's father on Frasier, Mahoney brought warmth to an otherwise grumpy, sarcastic character.

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

He was homesick at first but studied at Quincy College, then joined the United States army to speed up his application for citizenship before gaining a master's degree in English from Western Illinois University.

"John Mahoney was a fixture on the Chicago stage", Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in remembrance.

Loren Moron had a dream debut for Betis as he scored both goals which gave his side a 2-1 win at home to Villarreal. Iago Aspas netted his 15th goal of the campaign in injury time, but it was too late for Celta to salvage a point.

He took up acting classes in the 1970s and was urged by acting legend John Malkovich to join the Steppenwolf Theatre.

Mahoney's rep confirmed his death to ET on Monday, which happened in Chicago on Sunday "after a short illness". He only began acting in his late '30s, cutting his teeth at the legendary Steppenwolf Theater in Chicago before appearing in the original production of John Guare's The House of Blue Leaves (for which he won a Tony Award), and co-starring in the 2007 Broadway revival of Prelude to A Kiss, among other roles. Mahoney was unmarried and never had children.

Later, he played Walter Barnett, a business executive prone to panic attacks who consults Gabriel Byrne's psychologist during the second series (2009) of the drama In Treatment.

"He was my father", Grammer, 62, said. Mahoney's most recent TV appearance was as Betty White's love interest on Hot In Cleveland. His performance drew the critic Roger Ebert to write: "This actor can be as convincingly nice as anyone in the movies". He was also in the popular films Say Anything and Reality Bites.
