Noah Wyle - Noah Wyle Pays Tribute To Publicist Eddie Michaels At Funeral

Former E.R. star Noah Wyle paid tribute to his "compass and companion" Eddie Michaels at the celebrity publicist's funeral in Los Angeles on Sunday (11Aug13).

The public relations executive, who represented stars including Drew Barrymore and Anjelica Huston, lost his battle with brain cancer on Thursday (08Aug13) and was remembered by friends and family during a ceremony at Mount Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery.

Wyle, a longtime client, said, "What I received (from Eddie) was his wise counsel, his creativity. He was my compass and a companion in unknown territories."

The actor also recalled attempting to explain his friend's death to his own 10-year-old son, Owen, revealing he used an example from the movie Star Wars to help explain the loss to the youngster.

Michaels' wife, Lorin, said, "People laugh off L.A. and Hollywood and the unreality of it all, but they do not know Eddie's Hollywood and they certainly don't know our L.A. It's full of courageous, caring and loving people. Nobody knows that better than (our children) Dylan and Matthew and me. And Eddie knew that well, very well."
