Luckinbill (NBC)

Soaps.com recently had the opportunity to catch up with The Young and the Restless star Amelia Heinle, who plays the sometimes headstrong, always family-oriented Victoria Newman. Read on to see what Amelia had to say about fighting with co-star (and real-life husband!) Thad Luckinbill, getting intimate on set, Victoria’s future with Billy Abbott, and much more!

Soaps.com: I hear some “Happy Belated Birthday” wishes are in order! Was it your birthday recently?

Amelia: Unfortunately, yes! [laughs]

Soaps.com: And congratulations to you and Thad (J.T. Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) on the recent addition to the Luckinbill family. Tell us a bit about your new baby girl.

Amelia: Thank you! Her name is Georgia March Luckinbill, and she is almost 4 months old now, and she’s perfect! [laughs]

Soaps.com: So many fans have enjoyed how you and Thad have had a storybook romance, both in reality and on-screen as Victoria and J.T. How does it feel now that you’re taping divorce scenes with your real-life hubby?

Amelia: You know what? It’s fun! We don’t really fight at home that often. Everybody fights, but we fight very seldom. Maybe one of the reasons for that is because, when we come to work lately, all we get to do is fight! [laughs]

Soaps.com: Fair enough!

Amelia: I don’t know, I guess anyone who’s married would understand it. It’s kind of fun to yell at your husband. It’s like punching a punching bag!

Soaps.com: Like a form of therapy?

Amelia: Yeah! It’s like, “we don’t need to go to a counselor. We have The Young and the Restless!” [laughs]

Soaps.com: I saw the two of you on the Newlywed Game a while back and you were just adorable together. It’s kind of nice to now see you guys attacking one another on-screen!

Amelia: Yeah, we love it! We like it a lot. [laughs]

Soaps.com: While Victoria and J.T. drift apart, we see her inching dangerously close to Billy Abbott. How do you personally handle having to tape these new intimate scenes with someone other than Thad?
