Jerry Seinfeld has paid tribute to the “cutest TV mom” Liz Sheridan, who has died at the age of 93.
The American comedian, who co-starred with Sheridan in his eponymous sitcom Seinfeld, said he was fortunate to have known the actress.
Sheridan died in her sleep of natural causes, five days after her birthday on April 10, said her friend and longtime representative Amanda Hendon.
She played Seinfeld’s beloved mother Helen in the popular comedy.
“Liz was always the sweetest, sweetest TV mom a son could wish for,” Seinfeld wrote on Twitter, sharing a photo of the couple.
“Every time she came to our show, it was the nicest feeling for me. So lucky to have known her.”
Sheridan died two weeks after Estelle Harris, who played George’s mother in the program.
In addition to his famous role in Seinfeld, Sheridan also had a prolific stage career.
She appeared on Broadway in plays and musicals during the 1970s, including Happy End with Meryl Streep and Ballroom.
