Soap opera star John Reilly has died at 84, according to his daughter Caitlin Reilly. "The brightest light in the world has gone out", Caitlin Reilly shared on her Instagram. I'm so grateful he was mine.

Actor John Reilly's daughter confirmed he died at age 84 in January of 2021.

In 1974, he replaced John Colenback as Dr Dan Stewart on As the World Turns and stayed on the show until 1976.

The official General Hospital account paid tribute to Reilly on Twitter, writing: "The entire General Hospital family is heartbroken to hear of John Reilly's passing. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends". May he Rest In Peace.

He starred in the role for 11 years and was both a bad guy and a good guy on the show.

As a "General Hospital" alum, he joined its spinoff "General Hospital: Night Shift" and reprised his role as Donely.

However, his biggest breakout came on General Hospital as Sean Donely. "A kind, true friend who loved his family above all else", Finola Hughes tweeted. I miss him A LOT because he's a sweet and adorable old man and basically my twin so here is a clip of my favorite thing he ever did in his career because I love him.

'I spent so many years in #JohnReilly's company, suffice to say he was a huge influence on me and I am forever grateful for his kindness and love.

Kristina Wagner, Felicia Jones on "General Hospital", posted a Polaroid featuring Reilly from their time on the show on Twitter. "YOU were a treasure", she wrote.

He also lent his voice to the superhero Hawkeye in Marvel's Iron Man animated series.

From 1996 to '98, Reilly played Bill Taylor, the flaky father to Jennie Garth's Kelly Taylor in Beverly Hills, 90210. He also had recurring roles as Del Douglas on "Sunset Boulevard" from 1997 to 1999 and as Alistair Crane on "Passions" from 2005 to 2008.

He is survived by his wife, Liz, and three daughters.
