On “Seinfeld” set with her and the great Jerry Stiller shooting “The Rye.”
She made everything we wrote that much funnier.

Estelle Harris was funny, beautiful, kind & incredibly talented! We made a commercial together once and she told the director “I’m not doing another take until you promise to give Giselle this dress to keep!” ♥️♥️♥️ They gave me the dress. I will cherish knowing Estelle forever. pic.twitter.com/c7rSpqxtCp— Giselle Eisenberg (@gisellezenberg) April 3, 2022
