Bergman debuted on the show as Jack Abbott, the business executive of Jabot Cosmetics, back in November 1989. He took over the role from the original portrayer, Terry Lester, who left the show on September 1, 1989.
Before he joined the show, he was with “All My Children.” He was let go at that time and with the help of Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman) he landed the job. Her suggestion to her husband, Edward J. Scott, who at that time was the executive producer at “The Young and the Restless” increased his chances of getting the part.
