Daytime Emmy winner and fan favorite Peter Bergman is celebrating this month his 25th anniversary with The Young and the Restless playing the one and only Jack Abbott!

To kick-off the festivities, CBS Connect hosted a live event chat this week where fans on Twitter using the hashtag #AskYR posed questions to Bergman and his long time scene partner and on-screen sister, Eileen Davidson (Ashley)! During the chat, Peter revealed what he remembers of his very first day on the set, and then both he and Davidson reveal their most challenging or difficult storylines.  Peter revealed it was the “Keemo” storyline where it seemed odd talking about Jack’s years in the Vietnam war, while balancing him being in the boardroom and in corporate business at Jabot!

Eileen said one of the more difficult stories for her was Y&R creator Bill Bell’s classic storyline where Ashley has a miscarriage and then follows it up with a nervous breakdown.

One of the fun moments of the chat happened when a fan asked Peter when he will get a Twitter account, as right now the Newmans have a higher Twitter count than the Abbotts! To which Bergman replied, “As soon as hell freezes over I’m getting my Twitter account!”

Watch the entire video replay featuring Eileen and Peter after the jump! Then let us know …  do you agree with Eileen and Peter’s selection of the stories that they liked the least?  What is your favorite moment from their chat? Comment below!

Peter Bergman does not age. Hence, he’s one of the best looking men on daytime tv. Sexy doesn’t always mean shirtless. He has such a charisma about him. Hard to believe he’s in his 60’s!! He’s sexy as hell!! I would date him and i’m 30!!!

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

Jason Canela Reveals: “I’m Proud And Honored To Officially Be A Full-Time Member Of The Young and the Restless Family”

Former telenovela star, Jason Canela (Arturo) is staying put in Genoa City.  Canela, who is of Cuban descent, was originally brought on to The Young and the Restless as a building contractor, who winds up being the boy toy of none other than Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales. I’m proud and honored to officially be a full time member of the The Young and the Restless family.” #Blessed #EnjoyEveryMoment
