Jed Allan Actor

Jed allan

Jed Allan (born Jed Allan Brown; March 1, 1937) is an American actor. Allan has starred in several soap operas. He is perhaps best known for his role as Don Craig on Days of our Lives, which he played from 1971 to 1985. He gained a new audience when he played C.C. Capwell on Santa Barbara from 1986 to 1993. His departure from Days of our Lives was very controversial, as his character was abruptly written out with no further explanation. In one episode, he went to mail a letter and never returned, and was never mentioned in dialogue again. After his time on Santa Barbara, Allan had a recurring role on Beverly Hills, 90210 playing the role of Rush Sanders. In 2004, he started playing the role of Edward Quartermaine on General Hospital. This was in some ways unusual casting, as the actor who played Edward's son Alan, Stuart Damon, is a month older than Allan himself. In contrast, his wife on the show, Lila Quartermaine, played by Anna Lee, was 24 years older than he was. The age difference between Edward and Lila was of little issue as Lee was very sick by the time Allan played Edward, and so they never shared a scene together.
