Comedian and actor John Sessions has died at age 67 after suffering a heart attack.

The star, best known for appearances on TV shows “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” and “Spitting Image,” passed away at his home in South London on Monday.

In a statement, agent Alex Irwin confirmed Sessions’ death.

Sessions’ friend Ronni Ancona paid tribute to him today.

Broadcaster Danny Baker wrote on Twitter: “Shocked to hear that John Sessions has died at 67.

“Terrific company always and a true talent. His roles at the heart of this, my favorite radio series, have given endless pleasure to me and will continue to do so always. Travel easy, chum…”
