Characters of the Past: The Young and the Restless' John Abbott!

Click here to learn more-->






Welcome back to our "Characters of the Past" column and today we're looking at the character of John Abbott on 'The Young and the Restless'. John is the patriarch of the Abbott family, one of the core families which was introduced in the series in 1980. The character was originated by Brett Halsey in 1980 and he remained with the show for a year until Jerry Douglas took over the role in March 1982.

Douglas continued to play the part until the character's onscreen death on August 18, 2006. Since the death, Douglas has made several reprisals in hallucination scenes or ghost appearances to his children and various characters. John is mostly seen in great times of need. Throughout his run on the show, the character was romantically paired with Dina Mergeron (Marla Adams), Jill Abbott Atkinson (Jess Walton), Gloria Fisher (Judith Chapman), Jessica Grainger (Rebecca Street), Gina Roma (Patty Weaver), Mamie Johnson (Veronica Redd Forrest), Leanna Randolph (Barbara Crampton) and Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper), . He is the father of; Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman), Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson), Traci Abbott (Beth Maitland) and Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) and is the grandfather of many.

John was a very wealthy man who was the Founder and CEO of Jabot Cosmetic and was unfortunately overmedicated while in prison, which led to a stroke from which he died in a vegetative state in 2006.  While we still get a chance to see him from time to time, it may be time that the show corrects a big mistake by bringing back the character alive - do you agree?
