The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers – Don Diamont is a soap opera survivor
Ironically, Don had just been voted Best Newcomer in his role on NBC’s Days of our Lives when he was unceremoniously dumped by the show! But when that door closed another one opened at The Young and the Restless and he auditioned for the role of Brad Carleton. For those that remember his stint on Y&R, you’ll recall that he debuted as the Abbott family’s cabana boy!
When asked if he minded being shirtless eye candy Don responded, “I didn’t have an issue with that at the time. I was 22 years old … so I understood the business of that.”

Don also looks back fondly on the talented co-stars he’s graced the screen with.

I have been very fortunate.”
