Tributes for the late Kristoff St. John (Neil, The Young and the Restless) continue to be posted on social media. CBS, Sony Pictures Television, and the actor’s pals at sister soap, The Bold and the Beautiful, are honoring their beloved friend and colleague.
CBS and Sony released in a joint statement, saying that with “the heaviest of hearts, we say goodbye to our friend and CBS Daytime family member, the incomparable, Kristoff St. John.”
While St. John never appeared on B&B, he was cast as Neil by the half hour show’s co-creators, (the late) William J. Bell and his widow, Lee Phillip Bell, who also co-created Y&R.
Lauralee Bell (Christine, Y&R) also posted a beautiful tribute to her late co-star.
