Jon Paul Steuer Dies: Former ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’, ‘Grace Under Fire’ Actor Was 33
I was going to post that next!
Come on, he was a Klingon.
When the crew found out:
All kidding aside...sad when someone doesn't make it out of their 30's :-(
His character was much more interesting in DS9, but I'm sure that was another actor.
Agreed. But, having said that... I really detested the character he played on TNG!
Alexander never had a chance. Raised by a half Klingon who rejected her Klingon half who gets killed so Worf can play the roll of his dad for a while till he gets inconvenient and shipped off to his adopted parents on Earth. He goes back and forth a bit, gets crap for not being a real Klingon, and than when he finally embraces it he's a joke because he wasn't raised with it. Poor kid had a self hating half Klingon for a mom and an absentee dad who got involved when he felt like it.
Those episodes of DS9 featuring Alexander are my picks for the best of the series.
From what I've read online, sounds like it was a suicide.
That's so sad
I'm not sure why you were showing those mean Gifs
Because if you don't laugh then you'll just cry.
Um, the second one is mean, but the first one, the one with the yelling Klingons... on the show, Klingons howl or roar when one of them dies, to let the warriors in their version of heaven know that another warrior is on their way to join them. It's an appropriate tribute, if you're familiar with the show.
And yeah, it's really sad.
Yes...I realize that...it was the two gifs of the dancing and Spock blowing a raspberry
just hit me ...a bit of shock thinking of the young boy in those episodes
I don't remember him from TNG but I most definitely remembered Quinten from Grace Under Fire. R.I.P.
In light of Anthony Bourdain & Kate Spade's suicides, this story has been re-visited in the news:

"Steuer's death was ruled a suicide by self-inflicted gunshot wound"
God, not again!
