Are Nicholle Tom (on The Nanny) and Heather Tom and David Tom (both on The Young and the Restless) related?
—Lynette B., Texas

Yes, they are siblings. Twins Nicholle and David, 23, and sister Heather, 26, were born in Illinois. Their mother loved the theater and the arts and instilled that passion in her children. As children, the Toms got work in local commercials and print ads. The family later moved to Los Angeles with prompting from their agent. Before long, Heather nabbed a television guest appearance, David got a role in a play, and Nicholle was cast in a movie. They've worked steadily since then. After shooting the last episode of The Nanny, Nicholle has worked on several films, including Panic and The Princess Diaries. Heather has won two Emmys for her portrayal of Victoria Newman on CBS' The Young and the Restless. David, who has co-starred in films such as Swing Kids and Pleasantville, won an Emmy for his role as Billy Abbott on the same soap.
