Help him celebrate his special day.

The Bold and the Beautiful Don Diamont

Bill Spencer has been continuing to try to win back the love of Katie Logan on The Bold and the Beautiful, but there’s nothing but love for actor Don Diamont. And there’s even more being directed towards the actor today.

Happy Birthday, Don Diamont

That’s because he was born on December 31, 1962, in New York City, New York, which means that this talented actor is turning 60 years old today! Diamont – born Donald Feinberg – adopted his mother’s maiden name soon after landing an agent. He began his career as a model, eventually becoming much sought after by titans in the industry.

In 1984, Diamont was hand-picked by Ken Corday to appear on Days of our Lives. Diamont played Carlo Forenza for a full year and then accepted a role on a competing soap opera, The Young and the Restless.

At Y&R, he played gardener Brad Carlton, who exploited both his business acumen and good looks to climb Genoa City’s social ladder. By the early 1990s, Brad was a respected Jabot executive who had had more than his share of romances in Genoa City, the highlight being his marriage to Traci Abbott (Beth Maitland).

Diamont exited the role of Brad in 1996 to pursue other acting opportunities and he subsequently appeared on Baywatch, Diagnosis Murder, and High Tide. He made a triumphant return to Y&R in 1998, and he remained there until executives released him from the show, killing the beloved character as he saved another (Noah Newman) from drowning in an icy lake.

In March of that year, it was announced that Diamont had accepted an offer to join the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful, and he made his debut on May 12 and has remained as “Dollar” Bill Spencer ever since.

In 1990, Diamont became the first daytime actor to be included in People Magazine’s list of Most Beautiful People In the World. Nineteen years later, the magazine declared him the Sexiest Veteran Soap Actor.

Outside of his acting and modeling career, Diamont is an active contributor and advocate for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and he is known for being the spokesman for Sure Ultra Dry products and the Morris Home Furnishings store in Dayton, Ohio.
