Who is Christopher Ayres's girlfriend Krystal LaPorte?

Krystal LaPorte announced Ayres's death on Twitter with a lengthy note along with several pictures of herself with the late actor. "On October 18th at 8:40 pm my world went dark. Christopher Owen Ayres passed away peacefully, held close by his mother, brother, and girlfriend, and his arm wrapped around his Atticus pillow. He was able to pet the real thing hours beforehand. His hands were held. His face was kissed. We played Jim Croce, The Charlie Chaplin musical, and one hand stayed on my waist as I held the other while Unchained Melody played, the song we knew would be the first dance at our wedding. His mother and brother told stories of his childhood as he left. Read the complete note here.

"I have never been alive in a world where Chris wasn't. I am scared of it. So much of humanity's kindness, compassion, gentleness, bravery, generosity, and integrity were concentrated in one man. Everything feels so much colder. Chris loved you all. How much he loved other people filled the vast majority of our conversations. To those of you who truly loved him back, thank you. To those of you who stayed in touch, checked on him, reminded him that he was so, so much more than his job, you were the fuel of his fight. You fed the dreams of a future that kept him going longer than any normal person could go," LaPorte wrote. The American actress is known for voicing the characters of Mirai Kuriyama in the 'Kyoukai no Kanata' series, Tina in 'Overlord', Kohina Hiruko in 'Black Bullet', Yui Takamura in 'Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse', Shiori Asagiri in 'Tamako Market', and Cherri Bomb in 'The Hazbin Hotel', Marie in 'Suppose a Kid from the Last Dungeon Boonies Moved to a Starter Town?!'
