So sad to hear of the passing of David Schramm, who played Roy Biggins on Wings, my 1st TV writing job. Wonderful actor & sweet man. When I told him we were pregnant w our 1st, he said, “If it’s a girl you should name her Hannah.” It sounded so beautiful in his voice, we did!

I just read that David Schramm, a wonderfully talented actor & kind-hearted man passed away.

I mostly knew him from Wings but have been told by others what a talented stage actor he was too.

Not sure if any of his friends or family will see this, but my heart is with you all. pic.twitter.com/I81WGiTfuV
