Famous Jed Allan, known for his roles on "Days of Our Lives" and "Beverly Hils 90210" has recently passed away at the age of 84, although the cause of death is yet to be revealed.


The experienced actor drew his last breath on Saturday, March 9, 2019, surrounded by peace and those he loved most in the world.

The news of his passing was shared by his son, Rick Brown, who took to Facebook to let his father's fans and followers know that he had moved on.



Although Allan didn't have one of the most talked-about careers in the entertainment business, he was still one of the hardest working professionals around.

Born on March 1, 1935, the late 84-year-old was a true icon of the soap opera genre, landing his first roles back in 1964 as Ace Hubbard in "Love of Life" and Paul Britton in "Secret Storm."

Seven years later, Allan joined the cast of "Days of Our Lives," playing the role of attorney Don Craig. He played the character for 14 years but his run on the show came to an end in 1985.


The creator of the soap opera wanted to shift the tone of the series, focusing more on younger characters, but Allan's dedication was still rewarded with a daytime Emmy in 1979.


The actor then took over the role of C.C. Capwell in "Santa Barbara" between 1988 and 1993, before accepting a job offer to play Rush Sanders in the 90s sensation "Beverly Hills 90210."

That was where Allan had the opportunity to meet Luke Perry, the actor who played the infamous Dylan McKay. Sadly, Perry has also passed away fairly recently.



The actor, who was only 52 years old, died last Monday, March 4, 2019, after suffering a massive stroke that landed him in the hospital, where doctors were forced to induce a medical coma.

The procedure was supposed to give Perry's brain time to recover from the trauma, but after seeing no improvement, his family reportedly made the tough decision of taking him off life support.
