Victoria Rowell, a former star on the popular daytime soap opera, The Young and the Restless, has recently completed the filming of her own soap opera television movie series, The Rich and the Ruthless, in Jamaica.

The celebrated actress, producer and New York Times best-selling author reportedly met with Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Olivia Grange, to discuss the projects and initiatives which she took to Jamaica.

Indications are that The Rich and the Ruthless is the first international multi-episode soap opera-format production to be filmed on the island.

Powell is most popular for her role in The Young and the Restless, in which she played the character, Drucilla Barber.
