July 2011
Ian Buchanan is a Scottish television actor who has appeared on multiple American soap operas including General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and All My Children. In February 2012, Buchanan will debut on Days of Our Lives in the role of Ian McAllister.

Buchanan's first major daytime role came in 1986, when he joined the cast of General Hospital in the highly popular role of Duke Lavery, whom he portrayed until 1989. After leaving the role of Lavery, Buchanan appeared in roles on prime-time series including It's Gary Shandling's Show as Ian McFyfer from 1988 to 1990, and Twin Peaks as Dick Tremayne from 1990 to 1991.

In 1993, Buchanan returned to daytime and was cast on The Bold and the Beautiful in his second most recognized daytime role as Dr. James Warwick, which he portrayed until 1999. Buchanan has since reprised his role as Warwick in several guest appearances from 2004 to 2011. Following the end of his regular appearence as Warwick, Buchanan made a cameo appearance on Days of Our Lives in 2001 as Lord Sheraton, and in 2002, joined the cast of Port Charles where he portrayed the sinister Joshua Temple, until the show's end in 2003.

On May 30th, 2005, Buchanan joined the cast of All My Children, in the role of Dr. Greg Madden, a fertility specialist involved in the controversial "un-abortion" storyline involving Erica Kane , as well as the abduction of the daughter of Dixie Martin and Tad Martin . Buchanan's role as Madden came to an end on July 5th, 2006, when his character died as the result of being buried alive by Tad, a move which was widely criticized by fans for its apparent character assassination of Tad.

In February 2012, Buchanan will return to Days of Our Lives in the newly created contract role of Ian McAllister, who will share an ominous past connection with Madison James .
