Fans of the beloved soap opera Melrose Place are mourning the tragic loss of Brad Johnson, who passed away from COVID-19 at the age of 62 back in February, his family has confirmed.

The actor, who starred as Dr. Dominick O’Malley in the ’90s show, died on February 18 in Fort Worth, Texas, of pneumonia – which he contracted while fighting the deadly virus.

But what had he been been doing since starring in the Beverly Hills, 90210 spinoff series? In honor of his death, FEMAIL has uncovered everything he – and his Melrose Place costars – have accomplished since the show went off the air 23 years ago.

Melrose Place premiered on Fox in 1992, and went on for seven seasons before it ended in 1999. It followed a group of young adults living in an apartment complex in West Hollywood. 

It was created by Darren Star and Aaron Spelling, and it also starred Heather Locklear, Andrew Shue, Courtney Thorne-Smith, and Thomas Calabro.

After the series concluded, many of the stars went on to accomplish a lot – landing roles in a slew of big movies and TV shows, with some even launching major music careers and taking the stage in Broadway productions.

However, some were plagued with controversy and scandal, and faced numerous arrests after the show end off the air.

From run-ins with the law to romances between former costars, here’s what the stars of Melrose Place have been up to over the last two decades

Brad’s family released a heartbroken statement on Thursday night, while remembering a man who they said ‘lived life to the fullest’ but ‘was taken too early.’

‘He was a true renaissance man,’ his family wrote in an obituary. ‘He was not only interested in all life had to offer, but was gifted in it as well. Although he was taken too early, he lived life to the fullest. He was larger than life. 

‘Brad was loved by many and loved people back, a genuine friend, trusted colleague, and a dedicated husband and father, he will never be forgotten, and his legacy will go on.’ 

His other acting credits included Steven Spileberg’s hit drama Always, CSI, the Kirk Cameron-starring religious trilogy Left Behind, and the syndicated TV series Soldier of Fortune, Inc. 

The most recent role cited on his IMDb page was a 2015 cowboy film called Nail 32. 

The star, who was born on October 24, 1959, in Tuscon, Airzona, had stayed away from films over the last few years, but had been planning a comeback in the Western Treasure Valley – before it was shut down due to the writer and star of the film, Jay Pickett’s death.
