Stars Pay Tribute To the Late Stuart Damon


The soap world was stunned by the tragic death of GENERAL HOSPITAL legend Stuart Damon, who was beloved by fans for his decades-long run as Dr. Alan Quartermaine. The 84-year-old actor, also well known for having played Prince Charming in the 1965 CBS musical production of Cinderella, had been suffering from renal failure for the last several years.

In a Facebook post about Damon’s death, KABC reporter George Pennacchio quoted Damon’s son, Christopher, who said that being at GH was his father’s “favorite place to be. He loved playing Alan and was always so appreciative of that role and that job. It was his passion.”

And the people at GH loved Damon in return. As news of the “charming” actor’s passing began to spread, his co-stars took to social media, sharing sweet tributes to the kind, caring gentleman whom they so adored.

“On behalf of everyone at GH, I want to extend my deepest condolences to Stuart Damon’s family and all who loved him,” said executive producer Frank Valentini in a statement posted on the soap’s official Instagram page. “Stuart was an absolute legend of our industry and he’ll be sorely missed.”

“Damn, this news kind of broke my heart a little bit,” GH star Maurice Benard (Sonny) replied to the show’s post. “Stuart was such a class act. A real actor [and a] great man.”
