Victoria Rowell has such a full plate these days, a plate that would leave most people overwhelmed. But the 60-year-old actress welcomes all of the responsibility she now enjoys.
“It’s really been spectacular for a person like me who is ambitious and is a workaholic unapologetically,” she told me over the phone.
Rowell has been in the business since the ’80s and is still making major moves.
She’s doing a lot of writing and producing these days, including for her series, Jacqueline and Jilly, which is about a young woman falling into opioid addiction. She was recently a star in Lifetime movie Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta with Jackée Harry and Reginald VelJohnson, an adaptation, of course, of the Jane Austen novel.

The Winters Family was one of the big reasons why so many Black people watch Y&R. Kristoff St. John, Shemar Moore, & Victoria Rowell were IT #YR— Cherchez La Femme (@FrankieVtotheD) February 4, 2019

So very sad to hear about the passing of actor Kristoff St. John from Y&R or as my late Nonna called it "Resseh-leese". She was illiterate & knew only a few English words, but she followed every storyline. Neil Winters was one of our favourite characters. #RIPKristoffStJohn— Joanna D'Angelo (@JoannaDangelo) February 4, 2019

.@YRInsider has been my guilty pleasure for 20 years. This is just heartbreaking. Kristoff St. John’s character was so revolutionary because he & @victoriarowell represented the only black family on Y&R, the no. 1 soap. Kristoff is appreciated and will be sorely missed. https://t.co/dEeC4Ef5y9— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) February 4, 2019

I just called to tell Granma that Kristoff St. John passed away. We are gutted. If your grandma watched Y&R and had you watching it, you know who Neil Winters is. He is family.— Candice Marie Benbow (@CandiceBenbow) February 4, 2019

By the early 1980s, there were as many 20 soap operas on daytime TV. Now there are just four. But what endured for some two decades was Kristoff St. John's exceptional, powerful & nuanced portrayal as #NeilWinters on "The Young & The Restless."
