Canary appeared on “All My Children” from 1984-2011 and returned in 2013. He picked up five Daytime Emmys for his dual roles on the soap and was nominated many more times.
He was deliciously bad as Adam Chandler, the powerful head of the family that lived in fictional Pine Valley. He was always at loggerheads with the other baddie, Palmer Cortlandt. The sparks flew when he and Susan Lucci, who played reigning queen Erica Kane got together.
But Canary also played twin brother Stuart Chandler who was angelic and as good as Adam was bad and was the only one who could restrain Adam.
He also had a crossover appearance on ABC’s “One Life to Live.”
Earlier he had recurred on “Bonanza” as foreman Candy Canaday from 1967-73.
