John Clarke

Actor

Born - 14 April 1931, South Bend, Indiana, USA
Died - 16 October 2019

Thoughtful-looking, auburn-haired American actor whose cinema work was stopped dead in its tracks when he joined the cast of daytime TV's Days of Our Lives and stayed for 39 years. After stage experience, he became busy on TV in concerned roles from the late 1950s. A sprinkling of film credits includes Operation Bottleneck (1960), You Have to Run Fast (1961), Gun Street (1961), It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963), The Thin Red Line (1964), The Satan Bug (1965) and Finger on the Trigger (1965). His only subsequent movie credit proved to be Critics and Other Freaks in 1997. He eventually retired his long-running TV character, Mickey Horton, in 2004. A stroke in 2007 forced him to quit acting altogether. He died from pneumonia complications.
