At A Glance

Tracey E. Bregman, who portrayed Lauren Fenmore on The Young and the Restless from 1983-1995, returned to the role in 2001. She also crossed over to play Lauren on the daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful from 1995-1998 and again in 2004. Bregman received a Daytime Emmy in the category of Outstanding Younger Leading Actress for her role on Y&R in 1985, and was the first recipient to be awarded in this category.

Born in Munich, Germany, Tracey lived in London, England until the age of 10 when she and her family moved to Southern California. She studied acting with Francis Lederer at American National Academy of Theater Arts and at the Lee Strasberg Institute, and now studies with Gene Bua and John Homma.

Bregman began her acting career with the role of the young Donna Temple Craig on Days of Our Lives. Her other television credits include the after-school special The Girl with E.S.P., and TV movies Three on a Date and Sex and Mrs. X. She was a series regular on Second Family Tree with Ann Archer and James Spader, and guest-starred in the series The Fall Guy, Gavilan, Fame, and The Love Boat, as well as the Canadian series The Littlest Hobo. In addition, she has recently become the spokesperson for Axe deodorant. Her feature film credits include roles in Happy Birthday to Me, The Concrete Jungle, The Funny Farm, and Blue Devil.

In addition to acting, Tracey is a singer and songwriter. She wrote the themes for both The Funny Farm and The Concrete Jungle.

A health-and-fitness-conscious vegetarian, she recently launched her own line of yoga/athletic-inspired clothing called "Bountiful Buddha." A portion of her profits go to the Women's Cancer Research fund, as well as the charity One Family, which meets the immediate and long-term needs of victims of terrorism and their families.

Tracey lives in Los Angeles.
