Sheen’s fellow cast members haven’t commented about the public drama involving their colleague _ to the point where Sheen expressed disappointment in one of his interviews that he hadn’t been receiving support.

Holland Taylor, the actress who plays Sheen’s mother, said Tuesday that “in my experience, Charlie was cordial and polite with all of his castmates and crew, sometimes even courtly … and always witty.

“We watched movies at his house occasionally _ warm evenings with interesting, spirited conversation,” Taylor said. “This is the guy I know. In this very sad and complicated time, I really have no comment, beyond valuing my own history with Charlie, and my abiding affection for him.”
