It’s hard to imagine, but Young and the Restless star Melody Thomas Scott has been playing the same character — Nikki Newman — for 40 years. Her costar, Amelia Heinle, has been playing Nikki’s daughter, Victoria, for 12 years.
Together, that’s an astonishing 52 years of combined experience on TV’s top-performing, long-running soap opera.
Global News sat down with the two stars in Toronto to discuss how much they’ve become the characters they play, why they think Y&R has such incredible longevity after so many years on-air and what’s going on in Genoa City over the next few weeks.
The pair even broke into song… kind of.
Hear for yourself, and watch the interview, top.
