Young and the Restless aired a brief tribute to their late star Kristoff St. John on Friday, February 8. The short clip elicited frustration from several fans, which left them feeling "disappointed" in what they saw. Read on for all the details.
The clip, which was roughly 80 seconds long, featured Kristoff talking about what its meant to him to be part of Y&R for such a long time.
Kristoff's last acting Y&R episode aired three days after his death on Wednesday, February 6.
His fans tweeted their frustrations over how short the footage was that aired on Friday. "While I absolutely love this video I just wish it was longer. I’m selfish. I just wanted more," one tweeted.
"I get that you all are in mourning but the 'tribute' was worthy of an actor who’d been on the show for about a year. Not 28," another tweeted. "Disappointed."
Y&R's Twitter account did reveal that they will begin a storyline in late April that will pay tribute to both Kristoff and his character Neil Winters.
Kristoff died on Sunday, February 3. One of his friends reportedly went to check on him at his home in San Fernando Valley, where they found his body.
The LAPD confirmed his death on Monday, February 4. His cause of death has not yet been determined.
