George has released the following statement to The Hollywood Reporter:

“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 began his acting career in the early 1980s, scoring roles in Twin Peaks, RoboCop, Crossing Jordan and Iron Man 3.

Miguel was also a close friend of Todd Fisher, who recently lost his mother Debbie Reynolds and half-sister Carrie Fisher.

The actor, who is survived by his wife Lori and their two sons, served as best man at Todd’s wedding.

Other friends and family have paid tribute to the actor on Twitter:

So sad. Our thoughts go out to Miguel’s family and friends at this devastating time.
