When he died, it was Maurice Benard who shared the shocking news with fans. Maurice had shared photos of Tyler and said a lot about what a wonderful man he was. He went on to say, “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.”

Maurice concluded by asking for prayers and condolences for his children and Tyler’s father.

It has been noted that Tyler did struggle with alcoholism and was arrested multiple times for public intoxication.

Steve Burton also remembered his friend

Steve Burton who plays Jason Morgan on General Hospital also spoke out when Tyler Christopher’s death was announced. He said, “This hits hard. Really hard. Sometimes I use the word ‘brother’ loosely. But when I called Tyler my brother, I meant it . . . there’s a group of us . . . that have done and still would do anything for each other. We lost one. A beautiful and talented soul at that. It hurts. Thank you for the memories brother Ty. Love you. See you in Heaven. 🙏🏻🕊️.”

Steve is set to make his comeback to the beloved soap opera after being fired for not getting the mandated COVID-19 vaccines. Since the mandate was lifted, he is returning to his role as Jason Morgan.
