The young twins, who played Michelle Tanner on the hit sitcom “Full House,” mourned the loss of Bob Saget, who died suddenly Sunday at the age of 65.
Saget played the family patriarch in the series, which ran for eight seasons starting in 1987.
“Bob is the most loving, compassionate and generous person. We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us, but know he will continue to be by our side, guiding us with grace as always,” the pair said. The twin sisters, now 35, said in a statement to People magazine. “Our thoughts and condolences are with his daughter, wife and family.”
Saget continues her role in the Netflix sequel “Fuller House.” The show ran from 2016 to 2020.
While the Olsons have left show business and now run a fashion empire, they still maintain a close relationship with Saget, whom they met when they started filming “Full House” as babies.
“Ashley and Mary-Kate, I love them so much,” he said in a 2021 appearance on Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum’s podcast. “When I’m in New York or when they’re here, we’ll meet whenever we can.”
CNN has reached out to Olsens representatives.
