Description   [from Freebase]

Peter Thomas Barton (born July 19, 1956) is an American actor. In the 1980s and 1990s, he starred in The Powers of Matthew Star, with Louis Gossett, Jr.; Burke's Law with Gene Barry; and the soap opera Sunset Beach. Named one of the 10 sexiest guys in soaps by Playgirl, Barton is probably best known as Dr. Scott Grainger on the daytime drama The Young and the Restless. Originally from Valley Stream, Long Island, as a youngster, he was terrified of Cruella De Vil from One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961). He was a graduate of Valley Stream North High School, where he played soccer and wrestled. After graduation he attended Nassau Community College and was later accepted into St. John's University's medical school. But, just before signing up for classes, he got cold feet and instead decided to pursue a career in modeling and acting. Even though he had no formal acting training, in 1979 he starred as Bill Miller in the short-lived TV series, Shirley, starring Shirley Jones, Rosanna Arquette, and Tracey Gold. The show only ran for 13 episodes, but was great family entertainment.
