Diff'rent Strokes Star Gary Coleman Dead At 42
After recently suffering a fall that caused a brain hemorrhage, former Diff'rent Strokes star Gary Coleman died today at the age of 42. The actor has been in the spotlight in recent years more for personal troubles-- financial problems, domestic violence charges-- than his acting career, but his character Arnold from Diff'rent Strokes has remained a pop culture icon even two decades after the show went off the air.
Coleman suffered congenital kidney problems that caused his growth to halt when he was a child, though it's not known if his frequent health troubles helped lead to his death. We'll let you know more about Coleman's death as the information comes in. Feel free to share your own memories below.
