“I will hear his voice in my head for the rest of my days.”
Bob Saget passed away abruptly yesterday at the age of 65, and his fellow actors, comedians and co-stars have shared special memories with him ever since.
Among the celebrities who pay tribute to Bob Saget are those who worked with him on the film. How I Met your mother…
Even though Bob never appeared on screen in the series, his favorite voiceover for the elder Ted Mosby was an important part of the series.
Josh Radnor, who played Ted, Twitter shortly after news of Bob’s death broke to share how much he admired Bob and how important he was HIMYM Cast.
“Bob Saget was older and wiser than me nine years later. How I Met your motherJosh began. – He was the kindest, sweetest, funniest and most supportive man. The easiest person to be around. Mensch among the lesser. “
“I had so much impostor syndrome when HIMYM started, thought they would recognize me, kicked me off the set and sent me home. When I ran into Bob in the Fox parking lot in those early days, he praised my performance and told me how he studied me to make sure his vocal performance felt right. “
Josh then said how important it was that an actor he admired so much took the time to tell him how well he was doing the job.
“This man, whom I have enjoyed seeing on TV for years, has encouraged me by letting me know that I have the right to be there and play this character … I cannot overemphasize how meaningful his words were. (He also, in spirit, told me jokes that I cannot tell either here or in decent society). “
“We had a special bond from day one, we never lost touch for long,” continued Josh. “We found a way to have lunch once a year, even after HIMYM wrapped. We went to see each other at our Broadway shows. We talked a lot about how to live a meaningful life in the midst of all this chaos. “
Josh echoed what others had said about Bob, saying that he always said “I love you” and made sure you knew that. “There are people who leave the earth, and you are haunted by all that you did not tell them, all the love that was not expressed. Fortunately, this was not the case with Bob. We adored each other and talked to each other. “
He ended his Twitter thread with a cute photo of him and Bob and said, “I will hear his voice in my head for the rest of my days.”
Alison Hannigan, who knew Bob before she worked with him on HIMYM, shared this touching story of looking after his daughter.
Neil Patrick Harris said he was “stunned” to learn about Bob’s sudden death and how funny he was always.
