Hollywood Remembers George Segal, Who Has Died Aged 87
George was known for playing both dramatic and comedic roles, bagging an Oscar nomination in 1967 for Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? and sharing the screen with Barbra Streisand in the early rom-com The Owl And The Pussycat.
He later won praise for his work in sitcoms, including a Golden Globe-nominated stint in the workplace comedy Just Shoot Me! and, more recently, a role in the US show The Goldbergs, in which he had played Pops since 2013.
The actor died on Tuesday night, following complications from bypass surgery, his wife Sonia Segal confirmed to Entertainment Weekly.Following the news of George’s death, a number of his former colleagues and famous Friends have been paying their respects on Social Media.
The Goldbergs creator Adam F Goldberg wrote on Twitter: “Today we lost a legend. It was a true honor being a small part of George Segal’s amazing legacy. By pure fate, I ended up casting the perfect person to play Pops.
“Just like my grandfather, George was a kid at heart with a magical spark. I think these memories say it all.”Today we lost a legend.

We had such fun making Owl and the Pussycat. May he Rest In Peace...— Barbra Streisand (@BarbraStreisand) March 24, 2021My personal favorite George Segal movie is “The Hot Rock”. What a career. What a nice man, what an iconic cool funny 70’s movie star. #RIP— Ben Stiller (@RedHourBen) March 24, 2021So sad about the loss of George Segal. I grew up loving his films, from “Where’s Poppa?” to Sidney Lumet’s “Bye Bye Braverman,” to “The Hot Rock.” I got to work with him several times. This was last year at lunch. My deep sympathies to his family and friends. pic.twitter.com/HgQ6Z63kXO— bob saget (@bobsaget) March 24, 2021I was in a writers room once about 20 years ago and George Segal suddenly walked in and said “Are these the writers? I want to meet the writers!” He shook hands with all of us and then left. RIP.— David A.

I loved so many of his films: California Split, The Hot Rock, Blume in Love, A Touch of Class, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf. 🙏❤️— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) March 24, 2021George Segal was a wonderful actor and a lovely, charming, funny man. Thanks for all you left us, sir.#RIPGeorgeSegal— jason alexander (@IJasonAlexander) March 24, 2021RIP George Segal. Basically everything he did was iconic, he represents the 1970s. But California Split is the one. It’s a masterpiece. One of my all-time favorite films that combines the two absolute best of the decade with Altman and the wonderful world of degenerate gambling. pic.twitter.com/PaD9MNy1iY— Sean O'Connor (@seanoconnz) March 24, 2021In 2017, George was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
His other recent on-screen credits include a leading role in the short-lived sitcom Retired At 35 and a voice appearance in a 2018 episode of The Simpsons, in an homage to his Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? role.The actor is survived by his wife of 25 years, Sonia Segal.
He also had two daughters from his previous marriage to film editor Marion Segal Freed.
