It figures that Victoria Rowell, Drucilla Barber on The Young and the Restless, won a Soap Opera Digest award last year for scene-stealing. While many black actresses complain about a dearth of roles, Rowell also stars as Dr. Amanda Bentley on CBS’ Diagnosis Murder, appears in the Boyz II Men video ”On Bended Knee,” and appears with Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber, opening this week. She quips that other actresses say things like, ”’Girl, I’m trying to get one job, and you’ve got four. Share!’ ” Rowell, 31, a former ballet dancer, says her good fortune comes from ”an abundance of energy.” That also explains how the L.A. resident maintains a relationship with a boyfriend in New York, 3,000 miles away. ”In my life,” Rowell says, ”doesn’t that make perfect sense?”
