Daytime Emmy winner and fan favorite Peter Bergman is celebrating this month his 25th anniversary with The Young and the Restless playing the one and only Jack Abbott!
To kick-off the festivities, CBS Connect hosted a live event chat this week where fans on Twitter using the hashtag #AskYR posed questions to Bergman and his long time scene partner and on-screen sister, Eileen Davidson (Ashley)! During the chat, Peter revealed what he remembers of his very first day on the set, and then both he and Davidson reveal their most challenging or difficult storylines. Peter revealed it was the “Keemo” storyline where it seemed odd talking about Jack’s years in the Vietnam war, while balancing him being in the boardroom and in corporate business at Jabot!
Eileen said one of the more difficult stories for her was Y&R creator Bill Bell’s classic storyline where Ashley has a miscarriage and then follows it up with a nervous breakdown.
One of the fun moments of the chat happened when a fan asked Peter when he will get a Twitter account, as right now the Newmans have a higher Twitter count than the Abbotts! To which Bergman replied, “As soon as hell freezes over I’m getting my Twitter account!”
