At A Glance

Peter Bergman joined The Young and the Restless as the multi-faceted Jack Abbott in October 1989.

In his 30 years in Daytime television, including 10 years on All My Children, Bergman has received 19 Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor, and won the coveted award in 1991, 1992 and 2002. These and his two Soap Opera Digest awards for lead actor, as well as three MVP awards from Soap Opera Update, make Bergman the most decorated actor in "Y&R" history.

The son of a U.S. Naval officer, Bergman was born in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and moved nine times with his family before he entered eighth grade. Upon graduation from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in 1974, Bergman appeared in numerous regional theaters across the country and several national television commercials before landing the role of Dr. Cliff Warner on All My Children.

Bergman's other television credits include guest-starring roles in "The Nanny" and "The King of Queens," on the Network, and "The Five Mrs. Buchanans." He also appeared in the television movies "Pity the Poor Soldier," "Woman on the Ledge" and "Palomino."

Married for 29 years to his wife, Mariellen, Bergman is the proud father of two college-aged children, Connor and Clare, and the ultimate caregiver to Chester and Finley, the family's golden retrievers.

His birthday is June 11.
