Not sure if anyone remembers this show or this kid, but I found it sad that he is now dead at age 27 of a possible suicide. I watched Seaquest DSV religiously and remember this kid quite well. What a shame.
Here's the link (http://entertainment.msn.com/news/article.aspx?news=141519) to the info and a photo of him:

Oh no.....that's so sad :( And so young....I don't understand what causes people to commit suicide if that is what truly happened :(

Well, yes, I know that....being one of those who have attempted it....but now, 3 years later I still don't get it....no problem could be solved only by death

Yes, I remember him too. I saw a few episodes of Seaquest. Also came a across a movie or two which he was in (Neverending Story II among them). That is sad, of what I saw, he seemed like a good actor.

Apparently he auditioned for the role of Anakin Skywalker, according to imdb.com (http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0000970/bio)

That is very tragic. I remember him from Neverending Story II and from the IT mini series.
