BORN TO SHINE

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.

HIS PASSAGE THROUGH BEVERLY HILLS

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 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.
