Jonathan Brandis' apartment location.

This is the location where actor Jonathan Brandis committed suicide.

It is situated at 650 South Detroit Street in Los Angeles, California.

On November 11th, 2003, a friend of the 27-year-old found him hanging in the hallway of apartment #202, which is on the second floor.

Brandis starred in a number of sitcoms and movies throughout the 1990s. He portrayed the lead character Bastian Bux in the 1990 fantasy film "The NeverEnding Story II". 

He also played Lucas Wolenczak on the sci-fi series "seaQuest DSV" and Matthew in the sports-comedy movie Ladybugs (1992).

At the height of his fame, Brandis was a teen idol who received more than 4,000 letters per week from female viewers. His face was regularly featured on the front covers of teen magazines.

Unfortunately, his acting roles started to dry up in his early twenties. Although he worked hard to secure a part in the war film Hart's War (2002), many of his scenes were eventually cut during production.

This was a bitter pill to swallow, as he had high hopes that the movie would shake off his image as a teen actor and kick-start his Hollywood career.

In 2003, he was given a role in the pilot episode of "111 Gramercy Park". However, the series was never picked up by television networks.

As his career continued to peter out, Brandis reportedly became depressed and started to abuse alcohol.

Two years after the release of Hart's War, the young actor decided to commit suicide at this apartment building on Detroit Street.
