Eric Braendon was 18 years old when he emigrated from Germany to America with a University of Montana scholarship. At the beginning of his acting career, Eric Braeden guest-starred in a great number of television shows: on the drama series “Twelve O’Clock High”, on the adventure series “The Rat Patrol” and many more. Interestingly, in order to appear in the science fiction film “Colossus: The Forbin Project” (1966), he had to choose an American stage name – Eric Braedon. In 1971, he played one of the main roles in the science fiction movie “Escape from the Planet of the Apes”.

In the next few years, Braeden guest-starred in a number of TV series such as the superhero TV series “Wonder Woman”, western TV series “Gunsmoke”, science fiction series “The Six Million Dollar Man” and the American sit-com “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”. However, the most significant role that gave Braeden a big leap in his acting career was his role of Victor Newman in the CBS soap opera “The Young and the Restless” in 1997. For this role, Braeden received a Daytime Emmy Award as an “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series” in 1998 and has been nominated for a number of Daytime Emmy Awards over the years. Braeden is still one of the lead actors in “The Young and the Restless” which steadily increases his net worth and is the main source of his income.

In the 90s, Braeden appeared in the miniseries “Lucky Chances” and the thriller film “The Ambulance” (in 1990), he guest-starred in the CBS sitcom “The Nanny” in 1994, and the crime drama series “Diagnosis: Murder” in 1995. Naturally, Braenden’s role of John Jacob Astor IV in the 1997 blockbuster catastrophe film “Titanic” has also had a certain significance on his career and net worth; he was chosen for this role for his resemblance to the character he played.

Braeden’s success as an actor is marked by the numerous awards he has received during his long acting career. In 1990 he was presented with the “Distinguished German-American of the Year” award, in 2007 Eric Braenden’s name appeared on the “Hollywood Walk of Fame” and in the same year he received the Gilmore Award. Unsurprisingly, Braenden’s success as an actor was noticed by his homeland country Germany – he was rewarded by German Federal Government twice with “Bundesverdienstkreuze” medals of Honor.

In his personal life, Eric Braeden is married to Dale Russell Gudegast. They have a son – Christian Gudegast (born on 1970) who is now a famous writer and filmmaker. Braeden’s interest in sports persisted over the years – he is known as a good tennis player and a boxer.

#Quote
1 The workplace should have a place where the kids can visit. They should have places at the mother's or the father's work where professionals can have their kids visit them whenever they feel like it.
2 If we keep on ignoring and leaving children to their own devices at home, they become latchkey kids, and trust me, the consequences of that are not good.
3 Not too many people can afford for the wife to stay home and raise the kids.
4 My heart goes out to many women that I've met across the country who barely make enough to make a living, and they want to have kids. That's very understandable, but what do you do with the kids?
5 A mother's got to be there to raise the children. That's all there is to it. I feel badly for those mothers who work hard, and can't do it all the time.
6 If you're a young couple when you start out and are both working, trying to raise children, that is tough.
7 I'm not a politician.
8 I'm not saying that people should not divorce, but at the rate at which it happens here is sick. The kids, they suffer. I don't care what anyone says.
9 It's very difficult to judge relationships from the outside. You never know what happens in intimate moments with two people to know why they really support and love each other.
10 If it's really so wonderful that both partners have to work to make a living to pay for their house, for health insurance, someone is obviously going to get the short end of the stick.
11 Some situations are so hopeless when you look at them from the outside you say, Why are they still married?
12 Raising children is an enormously important part of life. I think one of the most important, or the most important, period.
13 A relationship has to be cultivated. There have to be feelings of love for another first. But then you have to really like the person.
14 If both parents must work, I think it is more important that the mother has proximity to the child to therefore establish a childcare situation at the big corporations not once a day, but many times a day.
15 I have a feeling that being in love sometimes means the projection of your desires onto another person. The important thing is that you like the other person, respect the other person and want to raise children with the other person.
16 Being in love, and I'm not an expert in this, I've lived it as much as anyone has, but I've not dissected it.
