NOAH LEE PREFERS TO LIVE AWAY FROM THE SPOTLIGHT

John Ritter, best known for his performance on the ABC sitcom “Three’s Company,” died on September 11, 2003, on Stella’s fifth birthday. He passed away six days before his 55th birthday in the same hospital where he was born.

Noah Lee has been keeping a low profile, which is why there are only few photos of him available online. After news of his transition broke out, he set his social media accounts to private.
