Estelle Harris, star of Seinfeld and Toy Story, has died.

Estelle Harris, the iconic voice of Mrs. Potato Head in the “Toy Story” franchise and George’s mother Estelle Costanza on “Seinfeld,” has died.

At the age of 93, she died of natural causes, according to her representative Michael Eisenstadt.

Harris was best recognized for her distinctive voice and comedic timing, which she established in her role as George’s (Jason Alexander) mother on “Seinfeld,” in which she featured in 27 episodes. Jerry Stiller, who played Frank Costanza, was her counterpoint, and the three characters had a lot of fun bickering together.

According to a statement from her son Glen Harris,

“It is with deep regret and grief that we inform you that Estelle Harris passed away at 6:25 p.m. this evening.”

“Her compassion, passion, sensitivity, humor, empathy, and love were nearly unequaled, and all those who knew her will be profoundly missed.”

Estelle Nussbaum was born in Manhattan on April 4, 1928, and began her career in Hollywood with roles in Looking Up and Once Upon a Time in America before obtaining a three-episode role on Night Court. From 1953 until his death in January 2021, she was married to Sy Harris.

Harris leaves behind three children: Eric, Glen, and Taryn, as well as three grandkids and a great-grandson.
