Morning Man Classic: Peter Barton!
Peter Barton, the cutie pie who first came to fame when he starred in The Powers of Matthew Star for NBC back in the 1980s, has been back in the news this weekend.
It seems an Illinois man who he had never met left his $1 million estate to Barton and another actor, Kevin Brophy, who starred in the series Lucan.
So it seems like the perfect time to once again shine a spotlight on Barton who went on to star in the short-lived prime-time series Burke’s Law, had his most lasting success on daytime soaps.
He played the role of Eddie Connors on Sunset Beach for a year then spent several year as Dr. Scott Grainger on The Young and the Restless.
Now 56, Barton has not appeared on the soap since 2005 and has no other acting credits since then.
But he has not been forgotten by his many fans – including the man in Illinois!
