Actor Michael M. Ryan, who died last year, was the only actor to play the role of AW's John Randolph. Randolph was "killed off" in a fire mainly as a flashpoint to spark interest in AW when the show expanded to 90 minutes in March '79. In my opinion, John Randolph made an ideal candidate to be sacrificed from the show's then bloated canvas: a character still vital enough to be mourned but not so important as to be indispensable.

    How many actors played John Randolph on AW? Was the character written out in order to bring in younger and cheaper actors?

      Mr. Ryan was the only actor to play the role of John on Another World (unless there were substitutes for him).
