“The Young and Restless” actor, Shemar Moore, continues to pay respects to the late actor, Kristoff St. John, as he took it to Instagram to share the full version of his speech. 


American actor, Kristoff St. John, who portrayed the prized character of Neil Winters on the show “The Young and the Restless” for 28 years, passed away at age 54. In this time, St. John has achieved multiple awards, including two Emmy Awards, and ten NAACP Image Awards. 

Moore, who plays St. John’s on-screen brother, Malcolm Winters, relentlessly shares to the world of his undying love and gratitude to his long-time friend. Moore’s intentions are grounded on sharing his full sentiments in his farewell message for the passing of his on-screen brother. 


Moore has certainly not shied away from remembering his late dear friend, as he had made previous posts for the intention of celebrating their togetherness, and exhibiting St. John’s loving memory.


In one post, Moore smiles beside a few photos, highlighting that he knows his on-screen brother looks down upon them from the heavens, as they continue to remember him.

Another post showcases Moore, together with the other actors of “The Young and the Restless,” commemorating the life of St. John, with a caption reading: 

“The [Young and the Restless] Family.....and WE ARE and will always be a FAMILY.... coming together to remember our brother KRISTOFF ST. JOHN ... we MISS YOU and WE LOVE YOU.”


Moore also honored St. John in Friday’s episode of “The Talk,” together with other co-stars who hosted the show.From the unfortunate turnout of events, the show had set out a plot that would lead to St. John’s character’s unexpected demise.

An emotional time such as this is nothing new for the St. John family in the past five years. Back in 2014, St. John’s firstborn, Julian St. John, was found lifeless in an apparent suicide brought about by the challenges of mental health illness.

The family, once again, faces a tough time as they go through the passing of the senior St. John.
