Dick Van Dyke Remembers Longtime Friend Mary Tyler Moore

Dick Van Dyke has penned a lovely letter in honor of his The Dick Van Dyke Show co-star Mary Tyler Moore.

The 91-year-old actor starred alongside her from 1961 to 1966, and they stayed friendly up until her death this week.

“[Mary] had us all laughing after a couple of episodes. She just grabbed onto the character and literally turned us into an improv group, it was so well-oiled. That show was the best five years of my life,” Dick wrote for THR about the show.

“In 2012, I got to present her with her SAG Life Achievement award,” Dyke also wrote about Mary. “She had moved to upstate New York and was already beginning to succumb to the diabetes, so outside of talking to her and her husband Robert, I didn’t see her unless it was an occasion like the SAG Awards. That night, she had trouble seeing, so they had to bring her onstage in the dark. For me, it was a payoff moment. A culmination. Outside of her family, I don’t think there was anyone more proud of her than I was. Just to watch her grow was such a thrill for me. She left an imprint on television comedy.”

Our thoughts continue to be with Mary‘s family and friends.

Dick Van Dyke to Make Cameo in 'Mary Poppins Returns'

Dick Van Dyke has confirmed that he will make a cameo appearance in the upcoming movie Mary Poppins Returns!

The sequel to the classic movie musical will star Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda. It is set to hit theaters on December 25, 2018.

“This one supposedly takes place 20 years later and the kids are all grown up,” Dick told THR. “It’s a great cast – Meryl Streep, Angela Lansbury and that guy from Hamilton.”

“I think it’s the worst thing you can do,” he added. “Certain people who do retire suddenly age. I think you have to stay active.”
