The Young and the Restless Star Peter Bergman Opens Up About His Emmy Reel

Speaking to Michael Fairman TV in a new interview, the handsome actor said that he knew this year was a big one for his character. Peter explained, “I submitted scenes that I had with Diane (Susan Walters) in Los Angeles as Jack is finding out her plan. On all these submission tapes, I only put people in who are really good and Susan Walters has proven to be just fantastic. The rest of my tape is with Phyllis (Michelle Stafford), when Jack goes to work to polish some things off, and Phyllis starts getting in his face one too many times and Jack blows up.”

Peter also admitted that there were a lot of emotional scenes that allowed him to bring out a side of Jack’s personality that fans haven’t seen before.

He said, “What I liked about the scenes with Diane was in all of that anger, we could see Jack’s pain and everything that he went through with this. He’s trying desperately to put this together. Jack’s thinking, ‘How do I let Kyle (Michael Mealor) know about any of this? How do I know?’ It’s all there and there’s a complexity to it. It’s not just Jack yelling at somebody. It’s Jack just torn apart by even seeing this person alive, and dealing with her presence there as they talk about what she’s really after. Again, Susan Walters is quite good in it, so that makes me look good. “
