Jed Allan, best known for playing Rush Sanders, died on Saturday evening at the age of 84. His son Rick Brown revealed the news in a post on a Facebook fan page dedicated to his father.
“So sorry to post the very sad news of my fathers passing tonight,” he wrote. “He died peacefully and was surrounded by his family and loved so much by us and so many others. Thank you for all who are part of this wonderful tribute to my dad on Facebook.”
Allan played the father of Ian Ziering’s character, Steve Sanders. Ziering acknowledged Allan’s passing with his own tribute.
“So sad to hear we’ve lost another 90210 castmate,” Ziering wrote. “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.”
A veteran of the small screen, fans may also remember Allan for his stints as Don Craig on “Days of Our Lives” and C.C. Capwell on “Santa Barbara.”
Former “Santa Barbara” star A Martinez also grieved the news about Allan in a lengthy Instagram post.
“Jed was a pro’s pro in every sense, and an inspired artist in the moments when the red lights came on — he was fearless, and his work moved millions,” he wrote.
Allan’s death comes just five days after Perry, one of the '90s biggest icons, passed away at the age of 52. The news stunned fans and was met with swift reaction from people sharing heartwarming stories about the star.
The deaths of Perry and Allan also come on the heels of news that a reboot of “Beverly Hills, 90210” is expected to premiere this summer, with several of the original stars expected to appear.
