Steuer appeared as Alexander in only one TNG episode ("Reunion"), before the role was taken on by several other actors, most notably Brian Bonsall. It was, however, quite a performance and a great episode.

According to the reports, Steuer died on January 1st at age 33.

Apparently he deeply disliked his experience on next show that he starred in (a recurring role on 'Grace Under Fire') and quit acting entirely but then went on to front a successful punk rock band called the Soda Pop Kids. He also opened a popular vegan restaurant in his home town of Portland.

"Jewels [Steurs] instantly understood the jerry-rigged catwalk's potential, landing a twirling leap four feet from the stage just as a climactic beat crashed home," Willamette Week contributor Jay Horton wrote in 2008, reviewing a Soda Pop Kids performance at a rock'n'roll fashion show. "Some people, as they say, don't do fashion. Some people are fashion."

    That's interesting (about him not enjoying his time on "Grace...") I remember reading Brett Butler started exhibiting some bizarre behavior in the later seasons, due to the pressure of the show and a relapse into prescription med addiction. I seem to recall a story about her hiking up her dress in front of one of the child actors. It may have been Steurs.
