Amelia Heinle ad­mits that she loved that al­ter ego Vic­to­ria suf­fered from PTSD af­ter be­ing phys­i­cally abused by ex-hus­band J.T., as well as her in­volve­ment in the guy’s demise. “I liked that a lot,” she shares. “There has got to be some­one who is feel­ing the weight of what hap­pened, who is show­ing true re­morse and see­ing that it is phys­i­cally tak­ing a toll on her. It was a very in­ter­est­ing sto­ry­line, and I loved it. I loved work­ing with Thad [Luck­in­bill, ex-j.t.], be­cause he did a phe­nom­e­nal job with the sub­tleties of be­ing abu­sive. It wasn’t like he was throw­ing me against walls on a daily ba­sis. It was more of a men­tal thing, and that was re­ally fun and in­ter­est­ing to delve into. I ac­tu­ally now kind of miss it!” As fas­ci­nat­ing as it was to play, Heinle says the re­sponse that she re­ceived from fans was even more im­por­tant. “Some of the feed­back was that some fans were ac­tu­ally ex­pe­ri­enc­ing this, and that they could re­late to some­one on our show who was go­ing through the same thing. That meant some­thing to me!”

Heinle was touched by fan feed­back to the abuse sto­ry­line.
