Tracey E. Bregman Bio

(Lauren, Y&R)


the 411

YEARS ON SHOW: 1983-95; 2000; 2001-present
MARITAL STATUS: Married Ronald Recht on December 5, 1987 and divorced in early 2011
CHILDREN: Two sons, Austin (b. March 18, 1991) and Landon (b. October 18, 1996)

Department store heiress Lauren Fenmore has certainly led an eventful life on on both Y&R and BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL, but her portrayer, Tracey E. Bregman's background is just as colorful. Born to a showbiz family in Munich, Germany, Bregman then lived in London, England until she was 10, when her clan relocated to Los Angeles. Not surprisingly, the actress knew from an early age that she wanted to follow in her parents' footsteps. Sure enough, she landed the role of DAYS's Donna in 1978 when she was only a teen. Her dynamic performance earned her a Soapy Award for "Most Exciting New Actress."
