He was so popular that he was eventually spun off into his own series, which premiered on September 16, —and lasted an amazing 11 years. To celebrate the beloved series 25th anniversary, here are some fun behind-the-scenes facts for all you Frasier fans.
Crane character would encourage unfair comparisons to Cheers, so their initial ideas involved Kelsey playing a paralyzed media mogul cared for by a street-smart nurse in a Manhattan penthouse.
Paramount hated the idea and convinced all concerned that it would be unwise not to capitalize on the built-in Cheers audience.
Once it was agreed that Grammer would continue as Dr. Crane, the creators still wanted to distance themselves from Boston and the whole "crossover syndrome. The gourmet coffee scene was just taking root in that area, which provided a central meeting place for the characters.
The character was named after Roz Doyle, one of the producers of Wings who died of breast cancer in at age Rosie Perez was this close to being psychic home health care worker Daphne. Grammer was pushing for the character to be a Latina, while the producers had their eye on Jane Leeves.
Grammer agreed to Leeves as the choice when his initial table reading with the actress went exceptionally well. The lamp by Corbu, this chair by Eames, and this couch is an exact replica of the one Coco Chanel had in her Paris atelier.
The chair was eventually covered with tape and covered with fabric purchased from an exclusive shop that specialized in deliberately tacky s-era textiles.
NBC agreed and said they would find the extra time—not by cutting a commercial, but by taking 15 seconds from the other four shows on that night.
Jane Leeves grew up just north of London, England, but since her character was from Manchester she used an affected Mancunian accent which received a lot of criticism from fans when Frasier aired in the UK.
Leeves worked with a voice coach to ensure that her accent would be understood by American viewers. John Mahoney, on the other hand, grew up in Manchester but emigrated to the U.
When Frasier first started topping the Nielsen ratings every week, which cast member received the most fan mail? Leeves once wryly observed that when Entertainment Weekly used Frasier as a lead story inEddie was the only cast member to appear on the cover.
Moose had relentless energy—he dug holes in the back yard, chased anything in his path, chewed furniture and even climbed trees to escape his enclosure.
His family gave him up to a rescue organization, which is where professional trainer Mathilde de Cagny discovered him. She decided he would be a good working dog because of his boundless energy and desire to always be doing something. Moose turned out to be an apt pupil, and learned to follow commands immediately.
Moose retired at the age of 10 after the end of Season 7 and his son Enzo took over the role of Eddie. Moose had been bred with the idea of achieving a look-alike replacement when it became obvious that Frasier would have a long run.
Enzo had two siblings, a sister named Miko who was too small to play Eddie, and Moosie, who had noticeably different markings.It was perhaps this literal quality that pushed him to look at the event again in , with Pan’s Labyrinth (El Laberinto del Fauno), this time with a dual purpose; first, to play not just the historical event but to explore its agents.
