Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen remember Bob Saget. The actresses reflected on their experiences and shared their condolences with the family of the late comedian after his death on Sunday.
âBob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man,â the sisters shared in a joint statement to ET on Sunday. “We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us, but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us with as much grace as he always has.”
“We think of his daughters, his wife and his family and send him our condolences,” the statement concluded.
Mary-Kate and Ashley rose to fame as infants with their joint roles as Michelle Tanner, Danny Tanner de Saget’s youngest daughter, on the famous ABC sitcom “Full House” from 1987.
The twins went on to find success in a series of films before stepping away from the limelight to enter the fashion world while growing up. The couple did not return for the “Fuller House” cover series.
Saget died Sunday in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida. He was 65 years old.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the news on Twitter Sunday afternoon, writing: “Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about a unconscious man in a hotel room. The man was identified as Robert Saget & declared dead on the spot. Detectives found no signs of criminal act or drug use in this case. #BobSaget “
The medical examiner’s office will ultimately determine the cause and manner of death, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office added in a statement to ET.
Saget was on his “I Don’t Do Negative” stand-up tour of the country and performed at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday.
