Larkin Malloy, a soap opera star whose credits include "The Edge of Night" and "All My Children," died Sept. 29. He was 62.

Malloy died from complications of a heart attack he had Sept. 24, his birthday. The news of his death was released by "All My Children" co-star Walt Willey.

Born in New York City Sept. 24, 1954, Malloy got his start in soap operas on "The Edge of Night" in 1980, playing Jefferson Brown and later Schuyler Whitney. While playing the latter role, he was in a car accident, and his injuries kept him away from the set for a time, though he later returned and remained with "The Edge of Night" until 1984.

From 1984 to 1987, Malloy played Kyle Sampson on "Guiding Light." He then moved on to "All My Children," where he played Travis Montgomery off and on from 1987 through 2001. The character was written off the show in 2000, dying of a stroke, but returned the following year as an angel.

Malloy's other credits include the soap opera "Loving" and the movie "Big Daddy," and he served as the announcer for the soap opera "As the World Turns." Malloy also worked as an acting coach.

Friend and fellow soap opera actor Nelson Aspen remembered Malloy's talents in the genre: "He was arguably the quintessential leading soap opera leading man ... what Fabio did for Romance Novels, Larkin did for '80s daytime drama: creating smart, sexy, swashbucklers that women would love and men would emulate."
