Peter Bergman Career
Peter originally auditioned for the All My Children 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 1988-89. 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 1986 in a Vicks Formula 44 cough syrup advertising campaign, Peter 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, was the original spokesperson in the ad campaign, which started in 1984.
Peter replaced Robinson after the latter experienced some legal difficulties. The writer of the commercial used this opening line as a disclaimer, because the then-existing “white coat rule” prohibited people from portraying doctors in commercials without some sort of clarification/disclaimer. The original commercial with Chris Robinson became the most-recalled TV commercial in the history of the Vicks brand.
Peter has played the role of Jack Abbott on The Young and the Restless since 1989 . Peter portrayed Jack Abbott in an episode “The Heather Biblow story” on The Nanny in 1997 , where he shared an on-screen kiss with Pamela Anderson. He guest starred as Jack on The King of Queens in an episode of Season 3 in 2001.
