Billy Miller, who won three Daytime Emmy Awards for his work on The Young and the Restless before moving on to General Hospital, has reportedly died at age 43.
Michael Fairman TV announced the news on Saturday, September 16, citing a source who said the actor died a day prior — and just two days before his 44th birthday — though no cause of death has been revealed.
The Belmont, a Los Angeles business of which Miller was a part-owner, also confirmed the soap star’s passing, Michael Fairman TV adds.
Miller got his start in Hollywood with a guest-starring part on CSI: NY in 2006, and he played Richie Novak in the ABC soap All My Children between 2007 and 2008, as seen below.
The Oklahoma native joined The Young and the Restless in 2008, taking the role of Billy Abbott. For his performance in the CBS series, he was nominated in the Daytime Emmys’ Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category three times, winning twice, and nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category twice, winning once.
Starting in 2014, Miller played Jason Morgan on General Hospital — taking over a role Steve Burton previously played — and earned another Lead Actor Daytime Emmy nomination for that part in the ABC soap. When Burton returned as Jason in 2017, Miller’s version of the character was revealed to be Drew Cain, Jason’s twin brother.
Miller wasn’t just a daytime TV fixture, however. He also had recurring roles in the primetime TV series Ringer, Ray Donovan, and Suits. And on the big screen, he shared the screen with Bradley Cooper in the Academy Award-nominated film American Sniper in 2014.
More recently, Miller starred on Truth Be Told as Alex Dunn, the husband of one of Lizzy Caplan’s twin characters on the Apple TV+ drama, and he guest-starred on The Rookie and NCIS.
