The Young and the Restless star Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott) is thrilled be back on set, getting "young and restless" once again. In a discussion with Soap Hub Insider, the daytime veteran explained how he managed to quiet his inner workaholic during the COVID-induced shutdown.

Bergman explained:

I’m THRILLED to be back to work. I have to admit, leaving out the coronavirus, the break was delightful —- time to read, exercise, nap, and eat too much. It’s the longest time I’ve been without work in 42 years. But I missed the cast, missed the fun of making a scene work, and missed the rhythm of a workday.

But a hiatus from filming doesn't mean Bergman didn't keep in touch with his fellow Genoa City denizens. He added:

I kept in fairly close touch with everyone that I regularly work with. A part of every day was picking up the phone to call or text someone. Michelle Stafford [Phyllis] and I spoke more while we were away than we do when we’re working.
