At A Glance
Peter Bergman joined the cast of The Young and the Restless in 1989, taking over the role of corporate bad boy, Jack Abbott.

Peter was born in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. His father was in the U.S. Navy and his family moved a whopping nine times before Peter entered eighth grade. Peter attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York before breaking into daytime in 1979 as the popular Dr. Cliff Warner on All My Children. In 1986, he also starred in a cough syrup commercial where he uttered the immortal words, "I am not a doctor, but I play one on TV."

During his free time, Peter enjoys playing the piano and coaching his children's various sports teams.
