Tracey Bregman discusses her incredible career as an American soap opera actress, where she is best known for the role of Lauren Fenmore on The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful, beginning in 1983.
A dear friend, Tracey and Dr Bill discuss how she broke into the industry and how she has parlayed that success into becoming an entrepreneur.
Bregman was born in Munich, Germany to American musical arranger, record producer and composer Buddy Bregman and Canadian-born actress Suzanne Lloyd. She lived in Great Britain until the age of 10 when her family relocated to California. She has been acting since she was 11 years old.
Prior to The Young and the Restless, Bregman appeared on Days of Our Lives between 1978 and 1980, portraying troubled teen, Donna Temple Craig. From April to June 2010, while still portraying Lauren, Bregman took on double-duty with The Young and the Restless, as she also portrayed Sheila Carter's sister, Sarah. When it was introduced in 1985, she was the first actress to be awarded the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series and being nominated for the same award again in 1987 and for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in both 2006 and 2008.
Tracey has also launched her own jewelry line on The Shopping Channel, called the Tracey Bregman Collection and has appeared on HSN as a Spokesmodel for the Jabot cosmetics line.
Bregman is also an active supporter and honorary board member for Chenoa Manor, an animal sanctuary in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
