Y&R: RIP Kristoff St John


Recommended Posts

It seemed like Bill Bell had a habit of "testing the waters" when it came to new characters....I guess that's why when Heather Tom came on, she went from recurring to contract like Kristoff. It seemed like years later casting Sharon was more of a challenge.

If TPTB want to tell a story they’ll tell a story

 

Not true.

 

Like when Y&R began a story with Adam only to drop it as soon as JM renewed his contract. Same thing with pairing JM with a new character during his contract issues.

 

There were similar situations when they paired Nikki & Bobby and JIll & Larry, etc.

 

Stories stop, start, shift & change for all sorts of reasons.

It really took them too long to retire the categories, because some of the nominations in the later years were given to people who barely had any screen time.

Yeah. Tatyana Ali won multiple times for essentially a day player role on name recognition alone. (I wish the Emmys would catch up and cut some of the daytime drama categories like Younger Actor/Actress, but they’ve been  *adding* them.)

I can only imagine how both his real-life family and Y&R family are struggling right now. KSJ was on Y&R for over half his life, and can't imagine how the cast and crew must have felt leaving work on Friday the first only to wake up to the horrible news on Monday morning. The Y&R people have gone through so much these past few months - such as Doug Davidson being let go after 40 years on the show, Tracey Bregman losing her house to the wildfire, Tricia Cast's husband suffering from terminal cancer -  and now this. I didn't want to say it at the time, but I felt after the news broke about the 72-hour psychiatric hold Kristoff was under about a year ago that he wasn't long for this world.

 

The tributes that have poured in not just from his Y&R family and the B&B folks who tape across the hall from them at CBS, but from the daytime and entertainment industry at large show just how loved and respected he was by almost everyone he crossed paths with, no matter what that person's station in life was. My heart especially goes out to his two daughters.

 

I am curious as to how Y&R will address Neil's exit (I seriously doubt they will recast - unless they want to face serious mutiny not just from the fans but the actors) and hope that they will bring back Tonya Lee Williams and Shemar Moore for the storyline. (I highly doubt Victoria Rowell will be invited back, but weirder things have happened). Let's just hope it's a story that will be a fitting farewell to both Kristoff and Neil.

I really loved this s/l with Neil....I just felt it was cut too short....

 

I just cannot believe I won't see KSJ anymore with anything new. I can't get over that he is gone. Makes me so very sad. I still can't believe I see his name in a memorial.....Sometimes when things like this happen I question my faith.....maybe I shouldn't but I do...Had he be older it would have been easy to accept but not at such a young age....He had so much more time to enjoy life here.

 

I remember her when she was on Star Trek and kissed Captain Kirk which was noted the 1st and most famous interracial kiss..

 

 

 

 

Gorgeous, beautiful sweet man.....

These photos of him are just beautiful. So handsome and youthful and kinda "boy next door" looking. For me, it just reiterates why this all feels so surreal.

Just saw the NAACP Image Award nominations came out today, and somehow I didn’t realize the daytime categories had been retired in 2015, which is its own indictment of the genre’s lack of inclusion. KSJ won 11 times.

 

I didn't realize that either.

Still odd to think he’s actually gone and we’ve officially seen the last of Neil. I actually still haven’t watched his final episode.

Ditto...While it started I then had to shut off in the middle as it was hurting me to see it...I have it taped and will watch but felt it was too much at the moment.

If you give me some time I have loads more and will post in a few days....Glad you like them. I just get a little sad looking and at times I get the courage to post. A little too fresh and emotions go up and down cause it is so fresh, not to mention, we grew with him on screen and he was way way too young.
