‘The Goldbergs’ Team and Hollywood Friends Respond – Deadline

Tributes and memories started pouring in for Oscar nominee George Segal after his wife, Sonia Segal, confirmed the actor’s death on Tuesday at the age of 87.

In addition to his long CV, Segal has been a regular at ABC The Goldbergs. Show creator Adam F. Goldberg was among the first to jump in today, posting a collage of photos: Segal playing banjo, Segal dressed as a Transformer, Segal in Batman outfit, Segal with his Hollywood star Walk of Fame.

“Today we have lost a legend,” wrote Goldberg. “It was a real honor to be a small part of George Segal’s incredible legacy. By sheer fate, I ended up choosing the perfect person to play Pops. Like my grandfather, George was a child at heart with a magical spark.

The entire show crew released a statement after Segal’s death.

On behalf of all at The Goldbergs we are devastated by the loss of our dear friend George. He was kind, sweet, more talented and funny. George was the very epitome of the class and he touched all of our lives so deeply. It has been an honor and a privilege to have him as a colleague and friend all these years. This is no surprise to all of us who knew him so well that he is a true national treasure. He will be missed by all. POPS, your banjo playing and your infectious laughter will be missed. Rest in peace.”

Sony Pictures TV, which produces The Goldbergs, also issued a statement

We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of George Segal. He was a true icon and legend in this business and a full member of our Sony family. George lit the screen whenever he was in front of the camera and was a warm, genuine gentleman. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones. He will be sorely missed.

Actress Melissa Joan Hart, who directed an episode of The Goldbergs and also made an appearance on the series, Segal remembers as “a true gem and a great man” before adding, “He will be missed!”

I am saddened by the passing of my close friend and client for many years. I will miss his warmth, humor, camaraderie and friendship. He was a wonderful human.
