On Reddit someone said Maurice and his wife had recently taken him "under their wing". I hadn't heard that. I know when TC was on Mo's show he said when he returned to L.A. he slept on a park bench for two weeks before he could get in touch with a friend who came and picked him up and gave him a place to stay. In those two weeks he spoke to both Mo and Kimberly McCullough. I remember thinking why didn't Mo or Kimberly offer him a temporary place to stay or some motel money?? Mo let Chad live with him for months while his house was being built and Chad had a steady income. I have to remind myself that when celebrities say they are "friends" it's a different kind of friend. I don't have soap heyday money but I've given friends who were down and out a place to stay (with time limit).

R60 From Wikipedia
Benard was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at age 22. He has become a spokesperson for treatment of the disorder with Mental Health America. He made the decision to have the General Hospital writers make his character, Sonny Corinthos, also have the disorder. Many of the struggles he faces on the show due to the disorder are ones he faced in his own life. Much praise has been given to the show for the realistic depiction.

I was a huge Jonathan Jackson fan in my younger days and I loved TC in JJ’s original run. When JJ came back, I saw the show again here or there. TC had gained a ton of weight, looked awful and seemed to be phoning it in most days. Or maybe he was just wasted. There is an amazing clip somewhere of Lucky finding out about Liz and Nikolas - JJ was amazing and TC just looked bloated and tired. It was such a shame because TC had been so good earlier.
On the Days front, I thought TC either had a seizure or they couldn’t wake him up from a stupor. Something that require an ambulance.

He was hot. My father died at 57, I am 54 now, and any time I see someone die in their 50’s it’s usually a past that caught up with them, and 9 times out of 10 could have been averted if not a genetic issue.
For all those 20-30 something DLers, drinking and drugs leave invisible physical damage underneath, even if you get sober for years and seem fine outwardly. His weight gain was likely because his kidneys and liver were working overtime.
AA, SMART, alcoholic, addict- whatever remedy you seek or that moment you are jolted awake- and suddenly recognize when shit gets real and you have a problem with drinking or drugs, you must cleanly address the underlying EMOTIONAL damage- and reevaluate the way you react to untoward events in your life, (or even how you celebrate it) if you want to live past your 50’s.

R98 A recent example of the ongoing physical damage of drinking that can lead to death is (former AMC) actor, Jeffrey Carlson. He was only 48.
The Cook County Medical Examiner's report came back on him a few weeks ago, and cause of death was listed as "Natural Causes." (Some had speculated suicide, but there was were no drugs in his system, or anything pointing to him doing anything.)
The report said his cause of death was "Alcoholic Ketoacidosis" due to "Chronic Ethanolism" (Alcoholism). So basically his body just wore out and his metabolism stopped functioning properly. One gets so sick, that it becomes irreversible. That's why it's "natural causes." (btw - Tachycardia can also happen with that.)

I couldn't take my eyes off him-not only handsome,but talented! I'm still mad 😡 🤬 that the three big networks at the time(ABC, CBS, NBC)decided that the reality of covering the OJ Simpson car chase/trial instead of airing our 'stories'(ifkyk)signaled the death kneel for daytime dramas as we knew it .

When I was younger, I may have smiled at the snark in this thread. As you age, stuff like that to me is getting less and less funny.
50 is just too damn young. Yes, I believe personal responsibility is important, but I feel very sad for him that he was unable to get things under control. So talented, so good looking, so liked by the audience... hard to understand
Wherever he is now, I hope he's found peace at long last.

In 2015 GH did a LIVE show. Twice, once for East Coast and another for West Coast. They had the little kid that played Spencer (Nicholas Bechtel) come out at the end and kill the last few minutes. Tyler and Finola came in at tail end and helped him wrap up the first version. Then Tyler and Billy Miller along with a crew guy came in at end of second version and started horsing around with him. Cute.
In general, it seems the adult actors on GH are good with and to the kids on the show.

My personal opinion about this would be that it seemed obvious that he needed a guardian in 2019, and the court agreed. And if you've ever been around an addict, and especially one who's also bipolar, then it's quite common for them to both exaggerate as well as try to blame others for things.

Has the coroner's report on Tyler Christopher's cause of death been released yet?

R251 If they're doing clinical toxicology testing that can take awhile. Don't know what the average time in San Diego County is, but in L.A. the wait can be over two months. (e.g. Tom Petty died in October, and his cause of death didn't come in until mid-January.)

Just at the one sister mentioned in R246 that the funeral would be in a couple of days, that appears to have happened (Friday). The other sister posted:
[quote] Today was so hard, but hearing everyone share their memories of my brother brought me comfort. Tyler is home and where he should be... with his family and friends❤️ Thank you to all of you that shared your photos and memories of Ty. It means the world to us.
