Helen Hunt Pays Tribute to Her Dad Gordon After His Death

Helen Hunt‘s father Gordon Hunt has sadly passed away at the age of 87.

The director and acting teacher frequently worked with Helen on her hit sitcom Mad About You and she once opened up about how nearly all her memorably episodes were with him at the helm.

Gordon died on Saturday night (December 17) after a battle with Parkinson’s disease, Helen revealed.

“He was a master of reinvention, a journeyman artist,” she told THR. “He knew and taught that the work doesn’t always find you. You need to create and re-create the work every day.”

We send our thoughts and condolences to the Hunt family during this difficult time.
