Was so shocked and sad to read this yesterday. I hadn't heard about the cancer before then. He was such a great actor and I will miss seeing him in any new projects. Of course loved him in Gilmore Girls but also in so many other things. Was thinking about the ones I liked him in the most such as The Paper Chase, The Great Gatsby ('74), The Great Waldo Pepper, Annie, A little Sex, The Purple Rose of Cairo, The Eleanor and Franklin movies, just a few of the older ones that I have enjoyed over the years. But looking at the list of all that he has done, I don't think that there was anything that he did that I have seen that I didn't like him in. Loved listening to the documentaries that he narrated mainly just because I love his voice. As they say, he could read the phone book and make it interesting. Would (and still will) watch any tv shows (now just reruns) that he is in even if I don't usually watch the show, just to see him. He will be so greatly missed. I still can't believe it. My condolences to his family, friends and the Gilmore Girls cast and crew who spent seven great years working with him. Rest In Peace.

I've been so saddened by this news, it really dampened my New Years. I loved him as Richard Gilmore, he'll be missed. Thanks, everyone, for posting tributes, may he rest in peace.

I was sad to hear about this.
I love that Kelly got to say good-bye, though.

ASP:

“Ed Herrmann was a towering presence who filled the room with grace, laughter, Chekhov references and several salty stories. He was our patriarch,” “Gilmore Girls” creator/exec producer Amy Sherman-Palladino told Variety. ” ‘Gilmore Girls’ would not exist without Ed. There really are no words.”

I was real sad to hear this news as well... no idea he was ill. I loved him on GG. Rest in Peace, Mr. Herrmann

Lauren graham:

Ed Herrmann’s combination of pure charisma plus his distinctive voice lit up any room he entered. He had a gentlemanly manner, a wicked sense of humor, and a sharp wit. He was well-read, interesting, and just plain fun to be around. He had deep respect and love for the craft of acting and led by example. You wanted to be better prepared, or just plain better, because he always was. He brought such humor and humanity to all his work, but I know the character of Richard Gilmore had a special place in his heart. He loved our show and was touched by the enthusiasm of its fans.

I wasn't here in ages, but when my Dad told me that he read in our (german) paper that this guy from the TV-Show you liked so much died - Herrmann or sth. like that
Me: Edward Herrmann?
Yes.
Oh no.
My mother: What role did he play?
Richard Gilmore
Dad: Yes, Gilmore, that's it.

well, I couldn't believe it and thought I'd pop on again. I didn't know he was sick either and after reading that he was treated for 3 weeks, I'm not sure he was ill for much longer, because why would you put that off? It seems it all went very quick...

But I'm glad Kelly got to say goodbye - also shows that they had a real good relationship.

Anyway my thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends now - what a sad way to start the new year...

This also devastated me. Coincidently, I am currently in the middle of a GG rewatch which I hadn't done since the show ended, so these news affected me more than I expected. I had just watched one of the many incredible scenes with Richard when I heard the news.

I'm glad Kelly got to say goodbye and send love from the girls.

This is so sad. Hope he didn't suffer much and that his family are ok. RIP Edward. No one could have been a better Richard Gilmore. Thanks for all you did.
