David Bailey (October 27, 1933 – November 25, 2004) was an American actor. Born in Newark, New Jersey, he went on to have a lengthy career in theater and television, perhaps his best known role being Dr. Russ Matthews on the long-running daytime soap Another World (1973–1978, 1979–1981, 1989, 1992).

On November 25, 2004, Bailey drowned in the pool at his home in Los Angeles, California.[1] He was 71 years old. His grave is located in Forest Lawn – Hollywood Hills Cemetery.[2]

At the time of his death he had been playing Alistair Crane on the daytime soap Passions for less than three months,[1] to great fan and critical praise. After his death, the role was recast with soap actor John Reilly.[3] The following year, Bailey's son Xander had a small role on Passions as Edmund,[4] a man who dated Alistair's granddaughter, Fancy.
