Bold and Beautiful's Don Diamont: "When They Made Jeanne Cooper They Broke The Mold"

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."
