One of such stars would be Mia Farrow, who decided to share a backstage image of the late actor holding a sweet-looking dog in his arms.

The late 81-year-old earned his Tony Awards after he appeared in Broadway productions like "Death of a Salesman" and "Long Day's Journey into Night."

Through the caption, the 75-year-old actress reminisced that she not only loved working with Brian but that he had also grown to become one of her most valuable friends.

She then explained that she took the picture when she and the late actor worked on the Broadway revival of A.R. Gurney's "Love Letters."

Another star who mourned the loss of the great showman was Sylvester Stallone, who noted that Brian "simply was A brilliant performer." A third celebrity, James Wood, mentioned that he was devastated to hear of Brian's passing.

 

It was the actor's daughter, Elizabeth Dennehy, who announced the news Brian's death, as she made it clear that his death was due to natural causes and not related to the novel coronavirus.

The announcement, which came as a tweet, included a black-and-white image and the words:

"Larger than life, generous to a fault, a proud and devoted father and grandfather, he will be missed by his wife Jennifer, family and many friends."

 

Although the Connecticut-born actor started his career as a comedic star, he soon became known as a dramatic actor who had roles in "Semi-Tough," "Foul Play," "Tommy Boy," and "To Catch a Killer."

His big break came when he featured as the overenthusiastic sheriff, Will Teasle, in "Rambo: First Blood" opposite Sylvester Stallone, who played the titular Rambo.

The late 81-year-old earned his Tony Awards after he appeared in Broadway productions like "Death of a Salesman" and "Long Day's Journey into Night."

Meanwhile, just before his death, Page Six revealed that Mia's daughter, who had been hospitalized over COVID-19 fears, was getting better.

While she showed her appreciation to her prayerful fans, the "Rosemary's Baby" actress stated that her daughter, Quincy, was getting stronger with each passing day.
