They were the unstoppable brother duo on Y&R.  Shemar Moore played Malcolm Winters, while Kristoff St. John played his older brother, Neil.   During Moore’s initial run on the show from 1994-2002; and later returns in 2004-2005 and a short visit in 2014, the Winters brothers had a complicated history.  But, in real life their friendship and closeness endured for years.

Following the tragic news on Monday of the death of St. John, and as the daytime community mourned and grieved Kristoff’s untimely passing, Shemar posted a heartbreaking video post via his Instagram sharing his remembrances, and what Kristoff meant to him both personally and professionally.

The star of S.W.A.T. expressed:  “Mr. Kristoff St. John, I lost my brother yesterday. I’ve never had a brother. But, you were my brother.  You showed me the way.  You were my mentor.  You were my inspiration.  You showed me what true talent was.  You showed me what humility was.   I love you.  I hate this.  I love you.   But I am going to celebrate all of your good.  To my Young and the Restless family – Kristoff St. John AKA Neil Winters – celebrate this man.  The most popular iconic black man in soap opera, daytime history – give him that.  He earned it.

To his personal family: Mia, Allana, his current fianceé (I have never met her), his son Julian (rest in peace), Paris, Lola: his two daughters, cry your tears.  I am crying right along with you, but then celebrate his heart.  Celebrate his goofy ways. Celebrate his talent.  He loved you.  He loved us.  Kristoff sleep, man.  Find your peace.”

Along with the video post Moore also noted: “Mr KRISTOFF ST JOHN….. There is no ME without YOU!!!!! You are MY BROTHER!!! I LOVE YOU!!! Sleep my dude…. REST IN PEACE… I’ll finish what YOU started!!! THANK YOU for YOUR HEART and TALENT!!!!! ”

Watch the touching video from Moore below.  Then, share your thoughts and remembrances of Shemar and Kristoff together on Y&R, and Shemar’s video message via the comment section below.

Me n my mom who along with the rest of my siblings always watched y n r together growing up( in canada it comes on in the pm) cried when we heard. I grew up with Neil! ..along with the hey day of the Malcolm, Dru and Liv quad! Shemar still reps y n r when he can, he and Neil were the best brother pairs in y n r, along with Dru and Liv as my fav sisters. The writing but ofcourse the acting was stellar!

The best thing Y&R can do is to kill off the character off-screen. I think it would be best to bring back Shemar for a few episodes to give closure to the character and the actor. My heart is broken from this.

I think that’s what Shemar meant as he said “I’ll finish what you started” Y and R will send Kristoff off in a very kind and appropriate way. He was there for almost 3 decades. Godspeed, sweet man! You will be missed!

It would be wonderful, James, if they would bring back all of his family. Without saying, I’m sure Shemar is coming back.

I wholeheartedly agree… Mr. St.John was
such a lovely man.. as was his character
he deserves a respectful send off.

I’m still stunned. Kristoff has paid the price that we all have to pay. I’ll see you on the other side.

I wonder will Shemar Moore make a brief return to the show? And Josh Griffith will most certainly write a fitting tribute. Lily needs to be released for the tribute as well. I hope this is a springboard to honor Neil and classic Y&R. He deserves to be honored like the late Jeanne Cooper. That being said, i expect to see Nina, Cricket, Jill, Olivia, Malcolm, Moses(aged), Paul ALL head back to Genoa City for this. Kristoff lobbied hard for Paul to return to the show. This is the chance. Dont screw up Y&R!

Shemar Moore shares his grief in a most touching way…his eloquent words make me lost for my own. Kristoff St. John’s final appearance, hugging/supporting Devon, saving the event with his clever idea, was as heroic as he always was (aired today on Feb 6.) Good to now know Y & R is airing a tribute on Friday, they are acting quickly during such a tragedy. Much respect for Mr. Kristoff St. John–his eternal spirit now soars.

‘Dallas’ star Ken Kercheval Dead At Age 83

Sad news to report for fans of the iconic primetime soap, Dallas.  Ken Kercheval, who played the thorn in J.R. Ewing’s (Larry Hagman) side, Cliff Barnes, has passed away.   The actor was 83 and died at his home in Indiana on Sunday.   The cause of death is under wraps.  He had been previously open about being a lung cancer survivor after years of smoking.

Kercheval was on Dallas for its entire run on CBS from 1978 to 1991, and returned to the TNT reboot from 2012 to 2014 to reprise his signature role.

On Dallas, Cliff Barnes was always the perennial loser when he went toe to toe with ruthless J.R, but in the final season, Cliff beats J.R at his own game and takes over Ewing Oil.  Cliff was also hopelessly in love with Sue Ellen Ewing (Linda Gray) and was the brother to Pam Barnes, played by Victoria Principal.

As for Ken’s first big acting breaks, that came on daytime soap operas when early in his career he appeared on Search for Tomorrow and How to Survive a Marriage.

Later, he appeared on episodic dramas such as Starsky & Hutch, and Crossing Jordan.  His final role was in a movie, 2019’s Surviving in L.A. said to be a comedy/drama in which he plays the business manager of a former teen sitcom star who trashed her life through drug abuse and is fresh out of rehab.

Share your thoughts on the passing of Ken Kercheval in the comment section below.   But first, watch him as Cliff Barnes in this scene from TNT’s Dallas when he sees J.R. for the first time in years!
