Two and a Half Men star Jon Cryer also reacted to Conchata Ferrell's death

Another of Ferrell's Two and a Half Men costars, Jon Cryer, also opened up about Ferrell's death on Twitter. "She was a beautiful human," he wrote. "Berta's gruff exterior was an invention of the writers. Chatty's warmth and vulnerability were her real strengths. I'm crying for the woman I'll miss, and the joy she brought so many."

Cryer recounted a memorable story from the Two and a Half Men set. "It was our second episode and I felt so lucky that they'd been able to cast her on the show," he wrote. "I gushed to her about what a fan I was of hers and she simply refused to believe it. I had to recount one of my favorite bits of hers from a canceled mid 70's sitcom called Hot L Baltimore before she finally got that I was serious. I'm glad that I absolutely knew how fortunate I was to share a stage with her. I treasured every moment and will continue to until we meet again."
