While his work on soaps stretches back over twenty years (including stints on Falcon Crest and Santa Barbara), it is the role of Edmund that has brought him the most fame and acclaim. He played on All My Children from 1992 to 2005, when the character of Edmund was controversially killed off. His death caused an uproar, mainly because another tie to All My Children's history was cut.
Since 2008, he has been playing Dr. Baker, an OB, on Days of Our Lives.
Callahan experienced an on-set romance with AMC co-star Eva LaRue, who for seven years played Edmund's wife, Dr. Maria Santos Grey. The popularity of the super couple Edmund and Maria led to the two co-hosting both the Miss America pageant and Lifetime's Weddings of a Lifetime. They had three wedding ceremonies on the soap opera as well as marrying in real life on November 30, 1996 on the island of Lanai in Hawaii. They have a daughter, Kaya McKenna born in 2001. It was the second marriage for both, and they have since divorced. Callahan had previously been married to Linda Freeman from 1982–1994, and has two stepsons from the union.
