The soap Young And The Restless is kind of staple from my childhood. While my Mom watched General Hospital, I took more after my Aunt who watched Y&R and just kind of stuck with that one.
Not to mention how many of the Y&R actors and actresses I’ve met over the years and they’ve all been so down to earth and nice. Unfortunately I never had the chance to meet Kristoff St. John.
Details on the death of Kristoff St. John who played Neil Winters on the soap since 1991 have not been disclosed yet nor has the cause of death, although rumors of alcohol has been mentioned. He was only 52.
Los Angeles police say they were called to his home on Sunday.
CBS and Sony Picture said in a joint statement that, “St. John was a very talented actor and an even better person.”
St. John had been dealing with demons since the loss of his 24 year old son, Julian died in 2014.
On January 21st, St. John tweeted, “Grieving the loss of a child is a process. It begins on the day your child passes and ends the day the parent joins them.”
