On Thursday, Miguel Ferrer passed away after a long battle with throat cancer. The actor was 61. Ferrer had been a part of several projects including “Robocop”, “Iron Man”, “NCIS: Lost Angeles” and others.
R. Scott Gemmill, the writer and executive producer of NCIS: Los Angeles said in a statement,
“Today, NCIS: Los Angeles lost a beloved family member. Miguel was a man of tremendous talent who had a powerful dramatic presence on screen, a wicked sense of humor, and a huge heart. Our thoughts go out to his wife Lori, his sons, and his entire family. He will be greatly missed.”
Tributes for the late actor poured in from all corners. George Clooney, Ferrer’s cousin posted,
“Today history will mark giant changes in our world, and lost to most will be that on the same day Miguel Ferrer lost his battle to throat cancer. But not lost to his family. Miguel made the world brighter and funnier and his passing is felt so deeply in our family that events of the day, (monumental events), pale in comparison. We love you Miguel. We always will.”
Miguel Ferrer is a son of Oscar-winning actor Jose Ferrer and Rosemary Clooney. The late actor is survived by his wife Lori, sons Lukas and Rafi and his brothers and sisters.
May his soul rest in peace.
