Kristoff St John Remembered by 'Young and the Restless' Fans
Kristoff St John's fans, co-stars and family are all still mourning the late actor. Daniel Goddard, who starred on the show with him, "still can't believe it."
Goddard from "The Young and the Restless" is still reeling from the pain after filming a recent episode of the show in which the cast bid farewell to the late St. John.
The cast was just as shocked as anyone when St. John passed away unexpectedly on February 3, 2019. On Instagram, Goddard asked his followers to help him remember his beloved co-star.
Along with a picture of the cast, including Goddard, taken at the funeral for St. John, he wrote:
"I still can’t believe it... I just can’t. Let me know in the comments below your favorite Neil Winters storyline, or... if you ever met Kristoff... and let’s support each other through this ever so hard time."
Fans did not disappoint with how much they shared as they reminisced about their favorite moments involving St. John on the show. A woman named Kathryn said hers was when Neil Winters (played by St. John) and Dru got married.
Someone else spoke about a time they saw St. John in person:
"He was an amazing man. Getting to meet him at the hospital was an honor and a privilege. He congratulated me for being a young surgeon and told me how proud he was of me, and that meant the world to me."
On the show, many people also commented on how well St. John played a struggling alcoholic addict. Off the show, they commended him for how he was so open about his son Julian's suicide that happened in 2014.
A former co-star of St.John also revealed how kind-hearted and open the late actor was when he paid tribute soon after the death. Shemar Moore played Malcolm Winters, the half brother of Neil on the show.
Moore said that St. John "opened doors for people who don't even realize he opened doors, but he did." He revealed that St. John mentored him and was "the closest thing to a brother and a brother's love that [he's] ever known."
According to Moore, he didn't have to embrace him, but that was the type of man St. John was. The late actor is survived by his fiancee Kseniya Mikhaleva, and his daughters Paris and Lola st. John.
