“It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of Tyler Christopher. Tyler passed away this morning following a cardiac event in his San Diego apartment. Tyler was a truly talented individual that lit up the screen in every scene he performed and relished bringing joy to his loyal fans through his acting. Tyler was a sweet soul and wonderful friend to all of those who knew him. Tyler was an advocate for better mental health and substance use treatment who openly spoke about his struggles with bipolar depression and alcohol. We are beyond devastated by the loss of our dear friend and pray for his children and his father.”

Fans didn’t care; all they wanted was for him to heal and to see him triumphantly return to his former position as Nikolas Cassadine on “General Hospital” at some point in the future.

Since leaving the role, he has been missed, and fans have always wished for him to return to the show.

His last role in a soap opera was on ‘Days of Our Lives’ as Stefan DiMera before Brandon Barish took over the role.

He was such a presence on our screens that we couldn’t not watch him and no matter what the scene involved, he was nearly always the star even if he stood off to the side.

Always a tragedy

His demise occurs just a few days after adored Friends actor Mathew Perry went away from what is believed to have been a heart arrest; the official cause of death is still under investigation.

Given that both have a devoted fan base and have struggled with substance misuse over the years, this is a one-two punch.

It will take some time to process this one since it hurts.
