Amelia Heinle Inks New Contract With The Young and the Restless





While Billy Miller's (Billy Abbott) fate at The Young and the Restless is up in the air, the popular actor's leading lady is definitely staying put! Sources have confirmed Amelia Heinle has inked a new deal to continue playing heiress and occasional mogulette Victoria Newman.

The Loving and All My Children alum has been playing the role of Victor (Eric Braeden) and Nikki Newman's (Melody Thomas Scott) daughter since 2005.

Not my favorite actress on the show but I give her props for showing some growth these last few months. Also props for landing that hot husband of hers (swooooon) and keeping him happy all these years.

So remember bitches, don't hate... emulate!

Congrats, Amelia.

Excellent news! Have loved Amelia since her days on LOVING. Not only beautiful, but a great talent.

Great news! She's been amazing in this Delia story. Now I just need Billy to re-sign too Smile

Well I haven't been thrilled with the writing and portrayal of Victoria since AH came on board. Maybe she'll win me over during this new contract. If I can't adjust to her at least I've already adjusted to not giving a whoop about the character.

Good for her and the show.

I need as many legacy characters on the show as possible with Phelps lurking the halls plotting God knows what.

Now we need Miller to get signed.

Heather Tom will never return as Victoria. She'll always be the REAL Victoria Newman. Amelia plays her as a patsy to her father Satan. Such crap. Good luck honey. You better pray that Billy Miller re-signs because he carries you day-in and day-out.

I love Amelia Heinle. She's such a natural beauty and definitely one of my favourite actresses. So happy she renewed! Oh, and her hair is gorgeous, love it all natural. You guys should get over it now, and move on.

I would love to know what dirt Amelia has on the writers because she is not earning that paycheck because of her acting. Pretty girl (when she combs her hair), but can't act for shit.

After eight years I'm still not used to her in the role as Victoria Newman. I wish that they would recast to have the chance to give the character some strength back, but I guess that won't happen.

I see her almost in the same category as Josh Taylor on DAYS. Two recasts that are just not working but manage to stay on their shows. At times this industry is just really weird.

I just wish the show would get rid of the character all together until they can find an ACTUAL actress to play the role the way it was meant to be played, bitchy and can stand up to TGVN!

Agreed! And you're especially right about the Billy comment. If he wasn't in most of her scenes, I'd FF all of them. As it is, I FF most/all of the ones W/O Billy.

She's a very pretty girl, but too wishy-washy with her father, the biggest a$$ on daytime.

Hey let's rehire David Tom to play Billy and then talk Heather Tom into coming back as Victoria and see how uncomfortable that would be! Can you imagine a brother and sister playing spouses? Well obviously they wouldn't be doing any kissing or anything but the fights would be awesome. LOL I never could get my head wrapped around Billy and Victoria together anyway because of the incest connection.
Love the hairbrush contract but honestly I wouldn't give that particular hairbrush a contract at a dog kennel! Girl needs to get that hair under control once and for all. She also needs to take some acting lessons! ASAP. Oh and get a backbone too. She's playing Victoria eff'n Newman not a wall flower. Where is the spunk and the steel coldness?

And what is her husband, Thad Luckingbill doing now? Is he just not acting anymore? The last time I saw him on a show was a couple of years ago, on Nikita. He actually is a decent actor.

Maybe she can do a cross over to BB once Thorsten Kaye arrives and we can have a "most disheveled" Daytime competition?

Have to say I like AH...have liked her since Loving/The City & AMC.

Why blame the actress for the crappy way the writers have been writing her?

Seriously, you guys are mean....just sayin'.

Because its not the writing, but the actress. AH has hands down received the best writing out of all the women on this show and she just brings shit to the table.

She's actually done a great job with the Delia storyline.

I like her too. She's not the best Victoria, but her take on the role is fine in the current writing environment.

I could name 5-6 actresses on other soaps who pale next to her.

The fact that Phelps resigned her means she'll keep having story.

This really doesn't surprise me. While Amelia Heinle is a lovely person she is simply a weak actress, and I am sure she is scared to death that Billy Miller might not resign. The only things AH's Victoria is good for is whining, crying, and pandering to Daddy. And oh goodie, we get some more of her weak acting. Can't wait!
