As the World Turns star Benjamin Hendrickson was found over the weekend- shot from an apparent suicide.
Since 1985, the 55-year-old Hendrickson played police chief Hal Munson on the hit daytime soap, winning a Daytime Emmy for the role in 2003. That same year, his mother passed away from cancer and the actor had reportedly been depressed over her death. He also appeared in "Another World" and "Guiding Light."
His final appearance on "As the World Turns" will be broadcast on July 12.
