PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – “The Young and the Restless” will honor soap star Kristoff St. John with a special tribute on Friday. The actor died Sunday at 52 years old.

Since 1991, St. John played Neil Winters on the soap opera, and he earned two Daytime Emmy Awards for his role – the first in 1992 and the second in 2008.

It is unclear how the producers of the show will handle his character moving forward.
