Heather Marie Tom[1] (born November 4, 1975 in Hinsdale, Illinois) is an American actress best known for her work on various soap operas, with her best known roles being Victoria Newman on The Young and the Restless, Kelly Cramer on One Life to Live and, since 2007, Katie Logan on The Bold and the Beautiful.

Career[edit]

As a jump start to her career, Tom guest starred on an episode of Who’s The Boss? in 1989. She then became well known in the realm of soap operas for her role as Victoria Newman on The Young and the Restless. Debuting in December 1990, Tom won two Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series in 1993 and 1999, along with nominations in 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998 and 2000. Tom departed from the role of Victoria on December 17, 2003, citing creative differences. Prior to her departure, she began portraying Kelly Cramer on ABC‘s One Life to Live, also making brief appearances on All My Children until she departed in 2006. Since 2007, Tom has become widely recognized for her role as Katie Logan on The Bold and the Beautiful; she earned nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in 2007 and 2008, with a win in 2011, followed by her first Lead Actress nominations and wins in 2012 and 2013. Tom has also guest starred on Monk and Ugly Betty and has also worked extensively in theater, both in New York and on the West Coast.

Personal life[edit]

Tom was born the oldest of three to Marie and Charles Tom, who are divorced. Her two younger siblings are twins David and Nicholle Tom, who are also actors. David played Billy Abbott on The Young and the Restless and also co-starred with her on One Life to Live as her brother, Paul Cramer, while Nicholle played Maggie Sheffield on The Nanny, starring Fran Drescher. In 2000, Heather and her brother, David, made Hollywood history as the first brother and sister to be simultaneously nominated for Daytime Emmy Awards in the same year.[2] In August 2011, Tom announced her engagement to her partner of 15 years, James Achor.[3] On September 17, 2011, less than a month later, the pair married.[4] On May 19, 2012, it was announced that the couple were expecting their first child together.[5] Tom later confirmed she was due around October. Sure enough, on October 28, 2012, Tom gave birth to her son, Zane Alexander,[6] weighing 8 pounds.[7] Heather and James also run a design business, Tight Rope Designs and have redecorated several homes in the Los Angeles area. Their work has also been featured in InStyle and Elle Decor magazines. In the summer of 2013, Heather starred in her own reality TV miniseries for HGTV called “Renovation Unscripted.” In September 2016, Tom finished first in the celebrity female division of the 30th Annual Nautica Malibu Triathlon with a time of 2:05:23.63, helping to raise more than $1,226,000 for the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Pediatric Cancer Research Program.
