Crucial Details About Amelia Heinle, Her Husband and Children

Actress Amelia Heinle has made a name for herself through her roles in various American soap operas. The Phoenix, Arizona native is, however, better known for her multiple Daytime Emmy Award-winning role of Victoria Newman in The Young and the Restless. Her time on the show has not only brought her the acclaim of her peers but also helped her find love as she ended up marrying the man who portrayed her onscreen ex-husband. This was the second time the actress has been able to find love in the workplace as she was previously married to another co-star of hers in a different show.

Amelia Heinle’s Journey to Stardom

Although Amelia Heinle has featured in a few movies in her career, she is better known as a TV actress. This is mainly thanks to her role in the CBS soap opera, The Young and the Restless, as well as in ABC’s All My Children. But while she is better recognized for these roles that came in the 2000s, the actress had begun her career far back in the early 90s when she starred in another ABC soap opera titled Loving.

Heinle was in her 20s when she landed the role of Stephanie Brewster in Loving in 1993. The show, which started airing in 1983, later ended in 1995 after 12 years on the air. A shortlived spin-off show titled The City was then created that year and the actress reprised her role. Loving marked the beginning of a successful career for the actress as she earned a Soap Opera Digest Award nomination in the category of “Outstanding Female Newcomer” for her performance.

In the years that followed, Amelia Heinle got to appear in a few movies and various made for television films. They include Quicksilver Highway (1997), Black Cat Run (1998), At Sachem Farm (1998), and the Steven Soderbergh directed crime film, The Limey (1999), among others.

In 2001, Heinle made her first appearance in All My Children playing the role of Mia Saunders. She remained a part of the show until 2004 when she opted not to renew her contract due to the relegation of her character to a background role.

Details of Her Long-Running Role on The Young and the Restless

Following her exit from All My Children, Amelia Heinle joined the cast of The Young and the Restless in 2005. She was cast to play the character of Victoria Newman which was previously played by actress Heather Tom.

Due to creative differences with the producers, Tom left the show in 2003 after having played the character for twelve years. Heinle had big shoes to fill when she took the role as her predecessor had won three awards from a total of fourteen nominations for her performance in the role. Her recognitions included two Daytime Emmy Awards in 1993 and 1999 for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series and a Soap Opera Digest Award for Outstanding Leading Younger Actress in 1997.

Amelia Heinle appeared to have had somewhat of a slow start but ended up gaining the praise of both fans and critics. In 2014 and 2015, she took home the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series to match the number of Daytime Emmys Tom managed to win.

Interesting Facts About Amelia Heinle’s Marriages

Amelia Heinle has been married twice. As mentioned above, she is one of those actresses who has been able to find love in the workplace, a feat she has managed twice so far.

The actress first found love on the set of Loving when she began dating actor Michael Weatherly who played the role of her on-screen love interest. The two soon took things to the next level as they tied the knot in February 1995. In about a year, they welcomed a son named August Manning Weatherly before deciding to part ways. Weatherly and Heinle divorced in 1997 after two years of marriage.

About a decade later, Amelia Heinle opted to give marriage another go as she married actor Thad Luckinbill in 2007. The couple had met on the set of The Young and Restless where Thad was playing the character of J.T. Hellstrom, her on-screen ex-husband.

In the same year they got married, Thad and Amelia had their first child together, a son named Thaddeus Rowe Luckinbill Jr. In December 2009, they added another member to the family as they welcomed a daughter named Georgia March Luckinbill.

Things appeared to be going on very well for the couple until it was announced that they had filed for divorce. They, however, failed to complete the process as Heinle later confirmed in late 2019 that they are still married and are trying to work things out.
