‘All My Children’ Alum John Callahan, Dies At 66

Soap vet John Callahan, best known to daytime audiences as ALL MY CHILDREN’s Edmund Grey, passed away after suffering a massive stroke at his Palm Desert, CA home.

According to a friend, on Friday, March 27, paramedics responded to a call and rushed the actor to Eisenhower Mesical Center in Rancho Mirage, CA, where he was put on life support.

Daughter Kaya Callahan and ex-wife Eva La Rue (ex-Maria, AMC et al) were notified immediately and rushed to the hospital from Los Angeles. The actor’s death is not related to COVID-19.  In a statement, La Rue said, “We are extremely saddened and distraught over the loss of John. He was my great friend, co-parent and amazing father to Kaya. The absence of his bigger than life, gregarious personality will leave a hole in our hearts forever. Words cannot express the shock and devastation we are feeling at this time. The Yankees just lost one of their greatest fans.”    

Our love and condolences are with Kaya and Eva and Callahan’s family.
