Home Alone actor Daniel Stern honors John Heard
Daniel Stern, best known as the long, clumsy burglar from Home Alone, responded to last weekend on the death of colleague John Heard. He proved his former roommate, mentor and friend the last honours with a comprehensive message on Twitter.
Stern outlines how he as a young graduate alone in New York ended up with the dream to become an actor, and by Heard under the wings was taken. He praises his Home Alone-fellow to his swagger, generosity and zest for life, and for all the beautiful moments that they shared together. The only thing Stern don’t remember, is their joint action in the two Home Alone movies.
“I forget that John is also in that movie. I have the movie, but once seen, and we had no scenes together. We are together on the set, maybe one or two times encountered.” In other projects pulled the two a lot more together, as on the set of the movie The Milagro Beanfield War (1988). “And we spent once a whole summer in the sewers of New York, when we with all our friends in C. H. U. D. playing in it.”
The 59-year-old Stern writes that the world is a great theatre actor is lost, “but the most intense was the role that John played in the life”. “He lived hard, fast and without fear.”
Felt inspired to write something when I heard about the passing of my friend, John Heard…
