Lee Thompson Young's Co-Stars Get Emotional at Memorial Service


Lee Thompson Young


The actor's 'Rizzoli and Isles' co-stars give emotional eulogies at the memorial service held at Paramount studio.

Following his untimely death at only 29 years old earlier this week from a tragic suicide, Disney star Lee Thompson Young was honored in a memorial service on Friday, August 23, held at the Paramount Pictures lot in Hollywood, where his drama series "Rizzoli & Isles" is filmed. Among those who gave emotional eulogies were his co-stars from the TNT television series, Angie Harmon, who plays one of the lead characters, Jane Rizzoli, and Jordan Bridges, who plays her brother Frankie.

Harmon was practically inaudible as she broke down while speaking about her late co-star and friend. "It was really hard to hear her because she was in tears. It was very emotional," described one of the attendees. Young played Rizzoli's second and new partner Barry Frost, a very protective colleague to Harmon's character.

Harmon also thanked Young's mother Velma for all the remarkable qualities that her son possessed. Meanwhile, Bridges, who shared a passion for martial arts with Young, gave a poignant eulogy when he held a horse stance in honor of his deceased friend and co-star, similar to a warrior pose in yoga.

Young's death came as a big surprise to everyone since he was "always the first to tell everyone to take a breath and enjoy the beauty of life." Apparently suffering from depression which led to a self-inflicted gunshot wound, he was discovered on Monday after his co-workers sent police to his home after he didn't show up for the taping of "Rizzoli & Isles".
