Peter Bergman (born June 11, 1953) is an American soap opera actor best known for his portrayals on All My Children, as well as The Young and the Restless.



The son of Walter Bergman, an American United States Navy officer, he was born in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Bergman was married to actress Christine Ebersole from 1976 to 1981. Since 1985, he has been married to Mariellen; with whom he has two children, Clare and Connor, who was once a five-star defensive end prospect at Harvard-Westlake School. The Bergmans currently live in California.


Bergman originally auditioned for the All My Children casting director for the role of Dr. Jeff Martin. His first notable role was his portrayal of Dr. Cliff Warner on All My Children, which he played from 1979 to 1987 and again from 1988 to 1989. His character, Cliff, married Nina (Taylor Miller) four times (1980, 1982, 1986, and 1989) and divorced her three times. When the characters left the serial, their fourth marriage was intact.

In a Vicks Formula 44 cough syrup advertising campaign starting in 1986, Bergman told the viewing audience, "I’m not a doctor, but I play one on TV." Chris Robinson, who played Dr. Rick Webber on ABC's General Hospital, also participated in the ad campaign.

Since 1989, Bergman has played the role of Jack Abbott on The Young and the Restless.

In 1997, Bergman portrayed Jack Abbott in an episode "The Heather Biblow story" on The Nanny, where he shared an on-screen kiss with fellow guest-star, Pamela Anderson.



Bergman has been nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor for his portrayal of Dr. Cliff Warner on All My Children.

He has been nominated 15 times (1990-2002, 2007, 2008) for his portrayal of Jack Abbott on The Young and the Restless.(Y&R) He won the award in 1991, 1992, and 2002. In the eighties, Bergman and fellow actor Eric Braeden had a much-publicized altercation during rehearsals. The two actors have since patched up their differences, and while they could never be described as "close friends," they are cordial in their working relationship.
