Amelia Heinle

Amelia Heinle (born March 17, 1973 in Casa Grande, Arizona) is an American actress best known for her work on daytime such as Young and the Restless for her role as "Victoria Newman". She was also a conestsnt for Cycle 2 of Madea's Next Top Model.

Early Life

In 1995, she married her Loving co-star and on-screen love interest Michael Weatherly, who played the role of "Cooper Alden." In 1996 the couple had a son, August Manning Weatherly, who was born in January of that year in New York City. In 1997, she and Weatherly divorced. Through the 1990s she appeared in many made for TV movies as well as a starring role in the 1999 Steven Soderbergh film The Limey as Peter Fonda's girlfriend.

In 2001, she decided to return to the world of daytime television and took on the role of Mia Saunders on All My Children, the heretofore unknown half-sister of Liza Colby (Marcy Walker). Although she started as a front-burner character, her romantic pairing with Jake Martin (J. Eddie Peck) didn't work out because of the actor's exit from the show, and so Mia was limited to being a background character. In 2004, Heinle opted not to renew her contract with AMC and left the show.

The following year, Heinle joined the cast of the CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless, as Victoria Newman, replacing the popular Heather Tom in the role on March 21, 2005.

She married Young and the Restless co-star Thad Luckinbill (who portrays her onscreen husband, J.T. Hellstrom) in March 2007. The couple welcomed their first child together, a son, Thaddeus Rowe on November 2, 2007. Rowe (as he is affectionally known) is the first child for Luckinbill and second for Heinle.
