St. John played Neil Winters, since 1991 in The Young & the Restless, and three years later came Moore, who played his stepbrother, Malcolm Winters. Recalling those early days in CBS's long-running TV show, Moore remembers that St. John was solid support to him.

“He didn’t have to embrace me the way he did. When I came in and was trying to find my way and he saw how scared I was, he saw how nervous I was,” says Moore. “He saw my six pack and all that, but he just saw me and he embraced me like a brother. If he hadn’t embraced me, I would have never got my sure footing in the beginning days.”

Kristoff St. John had suffered deeply in the last few years due to the tragic death of his only son Julian, who took his own life four years earlier. According to his friends, the actor had not managed to overcome the death of his son and that had deteriorated his health and vitality.

The whole family attended Julian's sad funeral on December 5, 2014. The young man was a sensitive artist who would have turn 25-years-old that same day if he had not taken his own life, something really devastating for any parent.
