Bold and Beautiful
Before he was ruthless, publishing mogul Bill "Dollar Bill" Spencer on CBS Daytime's The Bold and the Beautiful, Don Diamont spent the better part of two and a half decades on The Young and the Restless. Diamont played pool boy-turned-exec Brad Carlton. He credits the late Jeanne Cooper (Kay) with helping him out when he was a newbie actor back in 1985.
"I just love Jeanne and have so much respect for her," said Diamont in a released statement on Cooper's passing. "She was such a supporter of mine when I started at Y&R as a young, green actor. That always meant so much to me. She was truly one-of-a-kind. This next saying is used far too often but is truly applicable in her case: when they made Jeanne Cooper they broke the mold." READ MORE
