Profile Bio Text
John McCook (born June 20, 1944, Ventura, California) is an Emmy Award-nominated American actor best known for his roles on daytime soap operas. Since 1987, he has played the role of Eric Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful. From 1975 to 1980, he portrayed the character of Lance Prentiss on The Young and the Restless. In addition, he has appeared as a guest in episodes on dozens of primetime series. B&B co-star Winsor Harmon once starred with McCook on an episode of Acapulco H.E.A.T. filmed in Mexico. Harmon told Soap Opera Digest about their guest stint on H.E.A.T.:
"I hung out with John McCook the whole time and I kept watching all these people from other countries asking for his autograph. I`m thinking to myself, `Who the hell is this guy?` So one night, we were drinking Coronas and I asked him why he had so many fans and he explained how B&B was so popular around the world. I had no idea. The more he talked about it, the more I was thinking, `I want to be on that show.`... The first time I drove into the parking lot, there was John, just pointing at me and laughing. He asked what I was doing here and I told him that I was Thorne. That`s when he told me that he was going to be playing my dad. That was just too wild."
John McCook has been married since 1980 to former actress Laurette Spang, with whom he has three children, Jake Thomas (born 1981), Rebecca Jeanne (born 1983), and Molly Jane (born 1990). He was married twice previously, including to dancer Juliet Prowse from 1972 to 1979, with whom he had one son (born 1972). McCook currently makes his home in the Los Angeles area.
