Jonathan Gregory Brandis, an actor who co-starred on the TV show, “SeaQuest DSV,” committed suicide on Nov. 12.
Brandis, who was 27, hanged himself, the L.A. medical examiner’s office said.
Brandis began his acting career when he was five years old by appearing in television commercials and on the soap opera, “One Life to Live.” As a teen, he doubled up on his high school courses so he could finish a year early and work on the NBC show, “SeaQuest DSV.” At the 15th Annual Youth in Film Awards, the young heartthrob won Best Youth Actor in a Leading Role in a Television Series.
Brandis acted in more than 20 films, including “Hart’s War,” “It” and “The Never Ending Story 2: The Next Chapter.” He also did guest appearances on hit shows like “L.A. Law” and “The Wonder Years.” His final project was the independent film, “The Year That Trembled,” starring Fred Willard and Martin Mull.
