Master character actress Frances Sternhagen, who won two Tony Awards and became a familiar maternal face to TV viewers later in life with series such as “Cheers,” “ER,” “Sex and the City” and “The Closer,” has passed away. . She was 93 years old.

Sternhagen died peacefully of natural causes at his home in Washington, DC, his son John Carlin said in a statement on Instagram. “Fly, Frannie,” Carlin wrote. “The curtain falls on a life so rich, passionate, humble and generously lived.”

Sternhagen won the Tony award for best actress in a play for her role in Neil Simon’s “The Good Doctor” in 1974, and won a second award in 1995 for the revival of “The Heiress.” His last return to Broadway was in 2005’s “Seascape.”

“I was very lucky,” Sternhagen told the Daily Breeze in Torrance, California, in 2002. “And I think a lot of that comes from the fact that I’m considered a character actor, which means you can really do a wide variety of things. That doesn’t mean you can’t do leading roles, because I’ve done them. But you’re not limited to playing yourself.”
