43. Jonathan Brandis
The NeverEnding Story II: The Next Chapter star Jonathan Brandis was once a teen idol, but as he got older his career started to slide. This turn of events may, it’s said, have contributed to Brandis making the heartwrenching decision to take his own life in 2003, aged 27.

42. David Strickland
David Strickland’s sad passing in 1999 meant that his Suddenly Susan alter ego Todd Stities was written out of the sitcom, with a tribute show that was later broadcast seemingly honoring both the on-screen character and, by consequence, the man who played him. During that episode no mention was made of Strickland’s suicide, though, which – although understandable – may have helped his death fly somewhat under the radar to this day.
