His first appearance in a TV production at the west coast was a part in the world famous series Lassie (1968), but he also made his first movie called Ice Station Zebra (1968). In 1971 he was hired for the part of Don Craig in the soap opera Days of our Lives and since then he became a constant in daytime television.
To give his family a very special home he bought Clark Gable's house "Windy Gable" in 1981 and lived there for many years before he moved into a new house east of Los Angeles in the early '90s.

Despite a very busy and successful life as an actor he found time and still does find time to enjoy his hobbies: music (piano and banjo), travel, golf, sailing. And although he is not a cook at all, he made and released his own video called Cookin'-Fun with great success. Over, the years, the Brown family has grown bigger, with grandchildren arriving, and Jed is a passionate grandfather.
