NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) – Edward Hermann standing at a towering 6’5” was known for many roles throughout the decade. He was Emmy-nominated for his portrayals of Franklin D. Roosevelt more than once in the late 70’s and early 80’s however, it was his long run as the Grandfather on Gilmore Girls that made him a regular on household televisions across America. In an interview about Gilmore Girls he once admitted he had never actually watched the show.
"My friend Ed Herrmann was the kindest, classiest, most talented man," Lauren Graham tweeted. "It was an honor and a joy to know him, a devastating blow to lose him."
His deep throaty voice often lent itself to documentaries, many of which narrated for The History Channel and PBS. He also voiced hundreds of audio books.
Herrmann is survived by his wife Star, son Rory and two daughters Ryan and Emma. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
