Many friends and former co-stars have shared memories of Tyler Christopher after his sudden and heartbreaking passing, including the actor who played his television brother for years. GENERAL HOSPITAL alum Jonathan Jackson joined the cast in 1993 to play Lucky Spencer, and Christopher followed in 1996 as Nikolas Cassadine, Laura’s other son.
“My family and I are deeply saddened to learn of Tyler’s passing,” Jackson shared on social media. “He was a beautiful soul with so much compassion, love, humor, and strength. I have so many memories both working together and journeying through different seasons of life together.
“I consider Tyler a brother as well as a friend,” he continued. “It never mattered how much time would pass between us talking, we were immediately present and back where we left off. He loved deeply and had a great passion for life. Through all the trials Tyler continued to fight back against the darkness and be a voice for mental health, compassion, and goodness in the world.
“I’m truly at a loss for words,” Jackson concluded. “Our love and prayers are with his family and children. He will always be with us.”
