On Nov. 25, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS aired a very special episode dedicating the entire hour to celebrating the 30th anniversary of Peter Bergman's run as Jack Abbott. Of course, his actual debut on the soap was on Nov. 27, 1989, but this just extends the celebration!
Bergman is beloved by his castmates as well as Y&R fans, and many of them took to social media to share the love for their co-star and celebrate his three decades in Genoa City. Donny Boaz, who recently joined the soap as the new recast of Chance Chancellor, revealed that when Bergman isn't working, the soap will sometimes put him in his dressing room where he is inspired by the motivational sayings on the wall (along with his 18 Daytime Emmy nomination plaques!). "You can't help but learn and be inspired by the man," he admitted on Instagram. "Congrats, Peter. 29 years and 10 months to go to catch up to where you are now. Pleasure to know you and call you a friend."
