Congratulations to actor Peter Bergman, who is celebrating 30 years playing Jack Abbott on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS! He made his debut in the Nov. 27, 1989 episode, and the soap will be dedicating an entire episode to the actor and his legendary character on Monday, Nov. 25! You can check out a special preview of the can’t-miss episode below!
“It’s been a real joy for me to retrace Jack’s footsteps over the last 30 years,” said Bergman. “I am struck by the enduring friendship I have made at Y&R, and am deeply grateful to our fans, who have stood by Jack, cheered him on, or waited patiently for him to get his act together… for three decades! I’m happy, amazed, and truly thankful… and it sure feels good. Thank you one and all.”
The special episode will see Jack taking a walk down Memory Lane as he reads sister Traci Abbott’s new book, the family memoir that traces the triumphs and tragedies of the Abbott family. Naturally, this will include plenty of vintage clips from the soap’s history!
Including his 10 years on ABC sudser ALL MY CHILDREN, Bergman’s daytime career has spanned four decades and earned him 21 Daytime Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor. He has taken home the trophy three times, in 1991, 1992, and 2002.
