Ο Jed Allan, ο οποίος έγινε διάσημος ως "C.C. Capwell», στη σαπουνόπερα «Σάντα Μπάρμπρα» και ως πατέρας του «Στιβ», στο αγαπημένο «Χτυποκάρδια στο Μπέβερλι Χιλς», πέθανε σε ηλικία 84 ετών, όπως ανακοίνωσε ο γιος του.

SANTA BARBARA's finale in 1993 was the worst day of my teen life! It was the best soap of all time and I watched every day after school for 7+ years thanks to the VCR, but I ditched school to watch the finale live. This was Jed and Judith's (CC & Sophia's) final scene. #JedAllan pic.twitter.com/NFveEslXTi— Zachary Paul (@ZacharySire) 10 Μαρτίου 2019
Μεταξύ αυτών που τον αποχαιρέτησαν μέσω social media ήταν και τηλεοπτικός γιός του, ο Ian Ziering, ο οποίος μοιράστηκε με τους ακόλουθούς του στο Instagram, μια φωτογραφία τους από τη σειρά.
Ο θάνατος του Jed Allan, έρχεται πέντε μέρες μετά το χαμό του ενός από τους βασικούς πρωταγωνιστές της νεανικής σειρά, του Luke Perry, σε ηλικία μόλις 52 ετών, μετά από εγκεφαλικό επεισόδιο.

The actor Jed Allan walked on yesterday. Among his many unforgettable roles was that of CC Capwell, the powerful patriarch around whom the tempests of story swirled in NBC’s daytime drama Santa Barbara for many remarkable years. 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. I first met him in the early seventies, when his son Mitch Brown and I were cast mates on the TV series, The Cowboys. With his effervescent wife Toby at his side, he quietly asked me to keep a watchful eye out for Mitch, as it was his first gig. Jed was already a star by then, and he was as warm and articulate and charming as anyone I’d ever met. A decade later, when he came to Santa Barbara, the show finally began to find its eventually glorious stride. I LOVED working with him, as did everyone else who got the chance. Years later, he visited me backstage during the difficult run of a play I was doing — offered typically generous support — and then spoke of the loss of Toby, the love of his life, who had passed away shortly before, with literally no warning. (It was hard to imagine a human being missing another more...) In my dream, the two of them are dancing together again tonight — a great comfort to all who’ve known and loved them over the years. Condolences now to their wonderful sons, and gratitude to Jed for his unerring joy in the telling of stories, and for offering always the embrace of his massive heart. #JedAllan #ForceOfNature #TheFamilyYouChoose
