When Amelia Heinle joined the Young and the Restless cast in March 2005, she was already widely known to daytime viewers through her work on the ABC soaps All My Children, Loving, and The City.
It was on Loving that Heinle met her future -- and now former -- husband, Michael Weatherly. Heinle eventually left daytime television in 1996 to care for her newborn son, August Manning.
Beginning in 1997, Heinle started focusing her career on the silver screen. For the next three years, she appeared in at least one feature film. But television still called to Heinle.
Following a successful appearance in the 2000 tele-movie "Sally Hemmings: An American Scandal," Heinle returned to daytime television -- this time All My Children. In 2007, Heinle married her Young and the Restless co-star Thad Luckinbill, and they had two children together. But ironically as Victoria and J.T. on the Young and the Restless, they were married, had one child, then were divorced.
