Tyler Christopher died at the age of 50 and was best known for his Emmy-winning role in General Hospital. Christopher’s former GH costar Maurice Benard confirmed the actor’s death on Instagram.

“It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of Tyler Christopher,” he wrote. “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.”

Christopher represented Nikolas Cassadine on the legendary medical soap opera between 1996 and 2016. He also kept an Emmy-nominated turn as Stefan DiMera on Days of Our Lives from 2018 to 2019.

In 2008, Christopher got married to former ESPN reporter Brienne Pedigo and was reportedly divorced in 2021. The former couple have two children: Greysun James Christopher and Boheme Christopher. He was also previously married to Desperate Housewives alum Eva Longoria from 2002 to 2004.

Back in May, Christopher was arrested at the Hollywood Burbank Airport for public intoxication. He was freed on $250 bail.
