VIDEO: Brad Garrett Shares His Thoughts on Passing of Ann B. Davis
During the 7th Annual Television Academy Honors, Everybody Loves Raymond's Brad Garrett took a momen to share his thoughts with ET about the recent death of sitcom star Ann B. Davis, who died on Sunday, June 1, at the age of 88.
"She was amazing, and I'm sorry," said Garrett. "A good life, 88." On her iconic character Alice Nelson on The Brady Bunch, he added, "She wasn't a great housekeeper. But she was so funny. She never really did anything. She just stood in the kitchen, kind of like me on Raymond."
Davis achieved prominence for her role in The Bob Cummings Show (1955-59) for which she twice won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.
For 5 seasons, Davis played Alice Nelson on ABC's THE BRADY BUNCH, and became one of the most iconic TV characters. After the series ended in 1974, she continued to appear in specials, made-for-TV movies, and make cameos.
In 1960 she made her Broadway debut replacing Carol Burnett as the star of "Once Upon a Mattress." She took over the role of 'The Mother' in Broadway's 1992 production of Crazy for You.
