Kelsey Grammer, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin, and David Hyde Pierce have reunited for an emotional Skype chat from their respective homes during the covid-19 crisis.
“Frasier” stars Kelsey Grammer, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin, and David Hyde Pierce joined hosts of “Stars in the House” Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley for an emotional online reunion.
The cast of the iconic sitcom reunited on Skype on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 evening while on lockdown in their homes, to raise money for out-of-work actors amid the Covid-19 crisis.
During the show, which is supporting The Actors Fund during the pandemic, the stars of the NBC show, which ran for 11 seasons from 1993 to 2004, reminisced about their time on the series, with Kelsey, 65, declaring that he “fell in love with each and every one” of his co-stars.
“What’s so remarkable is that it just happened again and again and again in a quiet moment where I would sit and think, ‘Dear God they’re wonderful!’ ” he said. “I was just completely wrapped in this love with them which I still have to this day.”
Jane, 58, who played Daphne Crane, described the cast as “just a big family,” and 60-year-old David, who played Daphne’s husband Niles, was full of praise for Kelsey, gushing, “You took so much pleasure in the rest of us and the guest stars. You never said, ‘The light is on me, find what light you can,’ like other stars might.”
Kelsey first appeared as radio psychiatrist Frasier on sitcom “Cheers“, before fronting the new show, which won 37 Emmys in total.
Last year, the star teased a reboot could happen “as early as next spring” and, ending Wednesday’s broadcast, hosts James and Seth declared, “I am so excited a reboot is going to happen!”
While all of the stars laughed in unison, they failed to shed any light on future plans.
