Larkin Malloy—a veteran of three soaps most prominently during the 1980s—has died at age 62.
Malloy was known for playing Schuyler Whitney on ABC’s Edge of Night, Kyle Sampson on CBS’s Guiding Light, and Travis Montgomery on ABC’s All My Children.
He was nominated for the 1983–84 Emmy for lead actor in a drama series. His trio of leading ladies—EON’S Sharon Gabet, GL’s Kim Zimmer, and AMC’s Susan Lucci—also received nominations working opposite Malloy.
He later become an acting coach.

I have been watching Edge of Night and recently watched the whole Jefferson Brown/Schuyler Whitney storyline – he was brilliant and deserved more than his one Emmy nomination. The chemistry between him and Sharon Gabet’s Raven was sizzling in its intensity (: Sorry to hear of his passing.
Larkin Malloy was the quintessential 80s leading man. He played big roles on both Guiding Light and All My Children, opposite daytime legends Kim Zimmer and Susan Lucci. But I will always remember him best for his years on The Edge of Night. He really brought that show to life. I also remember him making a cameo on the final episode of Search for Tomorrow. I always hoped we would see him on soaps again. He made quite an impression.
WOW! How very sad. RIP, Larkin.
Never saw him on GL or EON but I’ll always remember him on AMC.
RIP Larkin Malloy. When I heard this news I couldn’t help but think about Susan Lucci and how she must be feeling this week losing both Agnes Nixon and Larkin Malloy in one week.
It’s interesting to note at the 1987 Daytime Emmys Larkin Malloy appeared in TWO of the Best Actress submission reels: in Kim Zimmer’s for his work on Guiding Light & in Susan Lucci’s for his All My Children performance. He was certainly in demand. RIP.
