Rest in peace, Brian Bonsall INTERNET FAKE - he's OK ...

[edit] usmagazine.us seems to be a not relyable source and it was fake news:
http://www.reddit.com/r/startrek/com...ll_who_played/

Gone too soon. The actor, who played Aleaxander Rozhenko, has been found dead, probably due to a drug overdose:

http://usmagazine.us/family-ties-sta...-overdose.html

His portrayal of Alexander on TNG was flawless, he made the son of Worf totally believable and touching for the viewer. He probably didnt know, but he was an important part of the TNG family and one of the reasons the show was special.

He will be remembered by the Star Trek family.

Geez, I'm sorry to hear that. Obviously it's not entirely unexpected, he's very publically had problems for years now. But definitely a sorry end to a fine young actor, who sadly was one of many talented child actors in Hollywood who has fallen through the cracks when they grow too old for those kinds of parts.

Good news Bonsall is still alive. These fake death stories are getting extremely tiresome now - and of course - are in the very worst taste.

Apparently untrue, per his friends and family in Colorado--and Brian's own Twitterfeed:
Brian Eric Bonsall ‏@mrbrianbonsall 26m
Well apparently i'm dead, lol but I'll have you know I'm doing well and enjoying a cup of coffee at home.

It's best to double check these things before reporting. Unless you're a major news network, anyway.

The sad part is, it could've been true as much trouble as he's had.

That's why crap stories like this get any traction.

That looks like an poorly-made scam site, pretending to look like US Weekly. Now they're reporting Wayne Knight (Seinfeld) has died. Uh huh.

No.

People posting without checking is why crap stories like this get any traction, not because of people's health problems.
