Don Diamont stars as the dashing and debonair heir to the Spencer Communications dynasty, “Bill Spencer, Jr.” on THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL. Bill arrived in Los Angeles following the sudden death of his father, Bill Spencer, Sr. and immediately began to stir up trouble for the Forrester and Logan families.
Diamont is no stranger to the Bell Family daytime drama dynasty. He is best known for his 22-year stint on CBS’ daytime mega-hit, The Young and the Restless, as “Brad Carlton,” which was created by the late William J. Bell and his wife, Lee Phillip Bell.
Having numerous prime time television credits, Diamont was most recently seen in the film Anger Management with Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler. Additionally, he had the lead role, opposite Oscar® winner Jack Palance, in Marco Polo.
Diamont made daytime history by being the first actor from a daytime drama series to be named in People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful” issue. More recently, he was listed in the 2009 “Sexiest Man Alive” issue.
A New York native, Diamont lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Cindy Ambuehl Diamont, and their children. When he is not working, he enjoys spending time with his family, cycling and playing basketball. After his niece, Alyssa, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), he founded the Don Diamont/Alyssa Mazur Foundation at UCLA’s MS Research and Treatment Center to raise funds for MS research. Diamont was named Ambassador of the Year by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for his devoted work and efforts to find a cure for this crippling disease.
Diamont celebrates his birthday on December 31.
