Suzanne Somers Learned of Bob Saget's Death During Live TV Interview

Actress Suzanne Somers has expressed her shock, after learning of Bob Saget's sudden death during a live interview on Australian television.

Beloved comedian Saget, 65, was found unresponsive in his hotel room in Orlando, Florida, on Sunday, several hours after he had performed at a stand-up comedy show in Jacksonville. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Somers, 75, appeared remotely for an interview on Australian talk show Studio 10 when one of the hosts, Angela Bishop, broke the conversation to reveal Saget's passing.

After the details surrounding Saget's death were shared, Three's Company actress Somers, who had guest-starred on Saget's classic sitcom Full House in the past, said as Bishop returned attention to her for comment: "I'm hearing it from you."

The screen star then went on to discuss her friendship with Saget, as she revealed that they were both working on sitcoms close to one another on the Warner Bros. Studios lot in Los Angeles back in the 1990s.

"I would appear on his show from time to time, because right next door at Warner Bros. was my set for Step By Step, where I starred with Patrick Duffy," she said i a video shared on the Channel 10 show's official Twitter account.

"We would go over to the Full House set, and it was kind of this wonderful thing that was going on at Warner Bros. at that time," Somers recounted.

Deeming the news "sad," Somers, who spoke from her home in Los Angeles, added: "I can't believe it. He's so young... I'm so, so sorry. He was a great guy. Really nice."

The Orange County Sheriff's Office confirmed Saget's death on Sunday while also stating that there were "no signs of foul play or drug use."

A statement read: "Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room.

"The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case."

The family of Saget—who has left behind his wife, Kelly Rizzo, and his three daughters from a previous marriage—asked fans to join them in remembering "the love and laughter that Bob brought to the world."

"We are devastated to confirm that our beloved Bob passed away," read the family statement. "He was everything to us and we want you to know how much he loved his fans, performing live and bringing people from all walks of life together with laughter."

Their statement concluded: "Though we ask for privacy at this time, we invite you to join us in remembering the love and laughter that Bob brought to the world."
