The cast and crew of B99 are in mourning this week as they have sadly lost a co-worker to COVID-19. Brooklyn Nine-Nine actresses Melissa Fumero (Amy Santiago) and Chelsea Peretti (Gina Linetti) paid tribute to their colleague who has sadly passed away due to the coronavirus. Steve Grothe, who was a sound mixer for early seasons of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, has passed away at just 52 years old.
Both actresses took to Instagram to pay tribute to their co-worker. Melissa Fumero said: “Just found out today that Steve Grothe, who was our sound mixer on earlier seasons of B99, passed away earlier this year of COVID-19. He was 52. I have fond memories of him from work. We had some good laughs. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. Rest In Peace friend. #wearamaskplease“.
Chelsea Peretti also paid tribute to the Steve Grothe, who was sadly a victim to the pandemic. Of course, she couldn’t help adding a little humor to her tribute. “Rest in peace Steve Grothe. I hope you are eating massive breakfasts somewhere special and I will always cherish when The Daily Mail described you as a silver fox when we were shooting in Malibu. Sending love to the Grothe family and friends”.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine isn’t the only project that Grothe worked on, with some amazing TV series and movies under his belt. Lucifer, The Mindy Project, Grey’s Anatomy, Santa Clarita Diet, Bones, and Justified are just some of the many series that Grothe worked on. Grothe has also worked on major blockbusters including San Andreas and The Cloverfield Paradox. Furthermore, IMDb highlights that the last project Grothe worked on was Netflix’s The Social Dilemma, an extremely popular documentary highlighting the dark side of social media.
Well wishes are sent to Steve Grothe’s family, may he Rest in Peace. And Melissa Fumero’s message is very important. The actress asks everyone to wear a mask, which is now more important than ever.
