COMMENTS FROM THE PANEL:
Jonathan Reiner: Seamlessly segued from child actor to emotional powerhouse. A true talent whose only fault is that she makes it look easy.

Roger Newcomb: I loved the little blonde girl who played Victoria on Y&R so it was a bit jarring when Heather Tom first joined the soap as an older version. Who knew that we'd be watching a future legend blossom over the next two decades? I was even more skeptical when Tom joined B&B thinking that I would never be able to see her on Y&R's sister soap without thinking of her as Victoria. But she proved me wrong. The future is very bright for the sensational Heather Tom.
