Former Days Star Passes Away

Edward Mallory, who portrayed Dr. Bill Horton on Days of Our Lives from 1966 to 1980, passed away on Saturday at the age of 76 after battling a long illness.

Aside from various acting projects, he also wrote, directed and produced documentaries for The History Channel and A&E. He is survived by his wife, actress Susanne Zenor, who played Margo Horton on Days from 1977 to 1980. He is the father of actor John Mallory Asher (who is perhaps best-know for playing Gary in TV series version of the hit movie Weird Science).
