    I have recently started to rewatch his movies ever since I knew that he committed suicide. I have seen him in many movies as a kid such as 'Ladybugs' and "The Never Ending Story'. I even liked 'Sidekicks' with Chuck Norris. Does anyone know why he committed suicide? It is a tragic loss because he could have become a great actor.

    I don't even know who he is. :o
     
  5. My guess is that he was sick of people coming up to him and saying "hey, aren't you the guy from Ladybugs?".

    Ok that was kinda mean. But seriously, from what I've heard, he struggled with depression most of his adult life. I guess it just got too bad for him.

    On November 11th, 2003, at the age of 27, Jonathan Brandis ended his life when he hung himself in his apartment. He was found by his friend while unconscious but still alive and was rushed to the hospital. He was pronounced dead on November 12th. Toxicology reports proved that he was not on any type of drugs when he took his life.

    yeah I used to love this show. I was really surprised to hear this too. My sister told me a couple of months ago. His posters used to cover my walls.
