LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Daytime Emmy-winning actor Tyler Christopher, best known for his role as Nikolas Cassadine on “General Hospital,” has reportedly died at the age of 50.

The news was announced by his friend and former “GH” co-star Maurice Benard on Instagram.

Benard wrote: “It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of Tyler Christopher. “Tyler passed away this morning after suffering a heart attack at his home in San Diego.”

The daytime drama’s executive producer Frank Valentini says Tyler was popular with the “GH” family.
