I only just found out that Lee Thompson Young, pictured above, committed suicide last August.
I was watching the season 5 premiere of Rizzoli & Isles and when they had the scene at the end where Frost dies in the crash, I thought ‘That’s a shame, he must have got a better offer or a film or something.’
Googled him and no.
His family have set up a foundation to help combat the stigma around mental illness: Lee Thompson Young Foundation
That’s partly why I’m posting this but also because I was genuinely looking forward to seeing Frost again. Young made him real for me, he was a fine actor. He did the same in Smallville, Terminator SCC, Flash Forward, The Event and everything I remember seeing him in.
Only 29. Fuck.
