Detective Frost – Rizzoli & Isles – Lee Thompson Young

It has been a year since Lee Thompson Young passed away.

For those who have read the Tess Gerritsen novel The Apprentice that Rizzoli & Isles, Lee Thompson Young’s most recent show, was based on, you may recall this description of his character Detective Barry Frost:

{Rizzoli}’d always liked Frost, had always appreciated his sunny and uncomplaining nature, and she hated to see his pride laid low.  She gave him a pat on the shoulder, a motherly smile.

It was an early description of a character Lee Thompson Young brought to life so powerfully over the course of 56 episodes.

He was a talented child actor on The Famous Jett Jackson who transitioned into adult work, charming audiences in Rizzoli & Isles.  Having recently read this passage in The Apprentice we wanted to take a moment to share it with you, and encourage you to read the books, and tune in to Rizzoli & Isles on TNT Tuesdays 9 PM ET/ 8 PM CT, and watch for Lee Thompson Young’s episodes on DVD or in re-runs.
