Young and Restless Star Dead

Published

on

Kristoff St. John, one of the few black actors on daytime television for many years, sadly passed away on Feb. 3 at the age of 52.

Most people knew him for his portrayal of “Neil Winters” on the “Young and Restless” daytime soap opera –  a role that he played since 1991, which earned him 9 Daytime Emmy Award nominations. He also won 10 NAACP Image Awards.

TMZ.com reported that the actor was treated at a California hospital in January for depression. His son, Julian, also died in 2014 from mental illness. It’s not clear the cause of death, but authorities pronounced St. John dead on the scene.

St. John started acting as a kid and starred in other roles, such as “The Bad News Bears.” and “Charlie & Company.”

After his son’s death, his ex-wife and international boxer, Mia St. John, started El Saber Es Poder (Knowledge Is Power) Foundation to provide resources for those suffering from mental health issues. St. John was recently engaged to model Kseniya Mikhaleva.

In 2017, around the third anniversary of his son’s death, Kristoff threatened to kill himself, prompting police to place the actor under a 72-hour hold for psychiatric evaluation.
