So sad to hear we’ve lost another 90210 castmate. I had the pleasure of working with Jed Allan from 94 to 99. He played Rush Sanders, Steve’s father. Such a great guy to work with, he will be missed. #ripjedallan

“He died peacefully and was surrounded by his family and loved so much by us and so many others.”

Born on March 1, 1935, Allan’s first soap roles came in 1964 as Ace Hubbard and Paul Britton, respectively, on Roy Winsor’s CBS series Love of Life and Secret Storm.

In 1971, he joined Days of Our Lives as lawyer Don Craig, a role that ended in 1985 as the series’ creators wanted to turn over the cast of characters to focus on younger roles.

Allan’s work on Days of Our Lives earned him a daytime Emmy nod for outstanding actor in 1979.

When I was 14, I got my first job as the daughter of Don (Jed Allan) and Marlena (@deidrehall_official ) on @nbcdays There were no two better people to learn from. Jed was not only an amazing actor, he and Dei taught me everything With patience and love. I still hear his notes in my ear when I work today. I am so sad to hear that Jed has passed away. He was the nicest man ever. Rest In Peace, I will never forget you. ❤️🦋
