What can one say about soap opera heartthrobs? They make daytime drama interesting; their smiles light up a room; and they make our heart’s skip a beat. When it comes to Genoa City, this little town certainly does not lack in the department of heartthrobs. Nick Newman still rules the roost, half-brother Dylan McAvoy has all The Young and the Restless (Y&R) ladies swooning, and while Stitch Rayburn can’t seem to get a break when it comes to love, his fans still adore him. But what about those heartthrobs of the past? Below is a list of seven Y&R forgotten heartthrobs.
7. J. Eddie Peck
In the 1990s, J. Eddie Peck Swooned Y&R fans while portraying novelist, Cole Howard. He charmed the pants off the Newman women, engaging in affairs with both mom Nikki, and the billion-dollar princess Victoria. He even had a relationship with Ashley Abbott. While Peck has moved on from his stint in soap opera land, he did leave quite an imprint. Peck not only had a solid run on the Y&R, but also Days of Our Lives, All My Children, as well as primetime dramas like Dallas and Dynasty.
