(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Stuart Damon, who is best known for his starring role as Dr. Alan Quartermaine in the legendary “General Hospital” show, has reportedly died at age 84. The tragic news was confirmed by his son Christopher to national media outlets.
Ultimately, Damon succumbed to renal failure, which he had been battling for the last five years. His son explained that he died of complications along with kidney problems.
Damon passed away on Saturday morning while resident at the Motion Picture Television Fund retirement community located in Los Angeles. He had lived in the community, which is designed exclusively for retirees from the entertainment industry, for around seven years.
Imagine the stories that the residents of that retirement community could tell!
General Hospital is one of ABC’s longest-running and best-known soap operas. Damon’s character was killed off in 2007 after 400 episodes, though he has occasionally returned to the set where his character has appeared as a ghost.
Not only did Damon appear on the show for many years, but he also famously played the Prince in 1965’s television “Cinderella” movie. The classic movie featured other Hollywood and TV legends like Celeste Holm, Pat Caroll, and Ginger Rogers.
Movies really aren’t as wholesome as they used to be, are they?
He was so popular in the daytime soap opera show that he was nominated for a Daytime Emmy a total of seven times, and even won the award in 1999. And as you expect with any long-running show, he also appeared in a 50th anniversary TV special back in 2013.
He received an outpouring of love from other TV stars, including his old colleagues.
Tristan Rogers said that he enjoyed his scenes with him and brought “steadiness” to the Quartermain family.
RIP Stuart Damon!
