Amelia Heinle has been fighting her way to the top since her first audition at LOVING. As an aspiring actress, the Arizona native worked at a coat check in Manhattan. On a lunch break, she caught a cab to a LOVING audition, but was thrown off when the cab brought her to the ONE LIFE TO LIVE set. She then had to run to LOVING in the rain and thought that she struck out because of her mussed appearance. Happily, she landed the role of Steffi Brewster.

Heinle's childhood gave her the confidence to break into acting. She is the oldest of five children and used to direct her siblings in backyard plays for their parents. At the age of 15, her parents moved the family from Arizona to New Jersey. She struggled with changing schools and leaving her friends behind, but in the end the move led her to the path she is on today.
