Larkin Malloy, who held roles on several soap operas including All My Children, has died. He was 62. Malloy played AMC‘s Travis from 1987 to 1998. Walt Willey, who portrayed his on-screen brother Jack on the ABC soap, posted on Facebook Thursday that Malloy had died of complications from a recent heart attack.
“Larkin Malloy welcomed me like a brother when I joined the cast in 1987. We worked together, did appearances together, partied together, vacationed together. He was an “actor’s actor,” spending many years teaching the craft, and a gentleman in the Old World style. We spent many hours together, both on set and off, and truly were “Irish brothers from another mother.” Tommy, you will be missed. Love you, brother.”
Larkin also appeared on the daytime dramas Loving, The Edge of Night, Guiding Light and As the World Turns and in a Season 13 episode of Law and Order.
His death comes one day after that of Agnes Nixon, the creator of All My Children and One Life to Live.
