There's some sad news to report today. As the World Turns and All My Children alum, Ben Jörgensen has passed away at the age of 51 reportedly from suicide.
His former co-star, Brian Gaskill shared, "Sad news to report. Ben Jorgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old. My understanding is it was suicide. I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award-winning storyline...but mostly we just had some good times back then...my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it."
Jörgensen also played Chris Hughes on ATWT! May he rest in peace!
