Soap opera star Roscoe Born dead at 69; family calls for more conversations around mental health

Roscoe Born died last week, and his death was ruled a suicide. He had struggled with bipolar disorder.

His family released this statement:
“We are grateful for the outpouring of kind words and memories. We only wish that Roscoe could have seen how much people still carry his daytime villains in their hearts. May his death remind us of the importance of opening up conversations around mental illness. May those who need help seek it. May those who seek help receive it. And may it serve them.”

He had starred in Ryan's Hope, Santa Barbara, All My Children, The City, Passions, The Young and The Restless, and One Life to Live.


ONTD, if you’re thinking about suicide, are worried about a friend or loved one, or would like emotional support, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s toll-free number: 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
