Really sorry to hear this: actor John Callahan, a really welcome presence on “All My Children” from 1992-2005, has died of a stroke.
His ex-wife, Eva LaRue, with whom he co-starred on the show, posted an announcement to Instagram. He was 66.
On “AMC,” the Callahans played Edmund and Maria Grey. Callahan appeared on other soaps, and was a regular on the nighttime CBS hit, “Falcon Crest,” in the 1980s. I remember him well. He was a very good actor, unafflicted by soap opera scenery chewing. He had a very natural quality, which was what kept him on the show for 13 years.
Callahan and La Rue divorced in 2005, and have a daughter. Condolences to them.

May Flights of Angels Wing You to Your Rest my Dear Friend. Your bigger than life, gregarious personality will leave a hole in our hearts forever. We are devastated-My great friend, co parent partner, and loving father to Kaya. That big belly laugh, bear hugs, bad puns, ability to harmonize to any song, great kitchen table singing-fests, and two steppin bad ass! “Johnny Numbers”, my All My Children soap stud, the great time keeper, Beatles fanatic ( I wish to God we could go back to “Yesterday”)… Kaya and I are beyond broken hearted, so stunned, sorry that my thoughts are a mess. You gave the best most beautifully written tributes, and I am at a complete loss for words right now for you. I hope Heaven has baseball and that your team always wins! The Yankees has just lost their biggest Fan. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
