A list of my favorite images of American actor Lee Thompson Young.

Lee Thompson Young (born: February 1st 1984 in Columbia, South Carolina, USA โ€“ died: August 19th 2013 in Los Angeles, California, USA) was an American film, television and theatre actor.

He was known for his teenage role as the title character on the Disney Channel television series 'The Famous Jett Jackson' (1998โ€“2001) and as Chris Comer in the movie 'Friday Night Lights' (2004).

Lee appeared on UPN's TV drama series 'South Beach' (2006) and he portrayed Victor Stone (known in DC Comics as Cyborg) in the television series 'Smallville' (2006-2010).

Young played a cocky surgical intern in the hit comedy show 'Scrubs' (2009). His last starring role was as Boston police detective Barry Frost on the TNT police drama series 'Rizzoli & Isles' (2010โ€“14).

Young enjoyed writing and wrote the screenplay for the 2007 short film 'Mano'.

On August 19th 2013, Young failed to show up for filming an episode of 'Rizzoli & Isles'. Police were called to do a well-being check on him at his Los Angeles apartment, where he was found dead. His manager stated the actor had committed suicide. Police confirmed the cause of death as a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Young had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, for which he had been taking medication, and had been suffering from depression before his death aged 29.

Young's family launched the Lee Thompson Young Foundation in an effort to help remove the stigma surrounding mental illness.
