‘Y&R’ and ‘General Hospital’ Star Dead at 43

Daytime TV fans were devasted this weekend to learn of the passing of Billy Miller.

Miller, who was just days shy of his 44th birthday, died on Friday, September 15, 2023, reported the New York Post.

He was best known for his roles on "The Young and the Restless" and "General Hospital."

Fans Stunned

Between those two shows, Miller had accumulated more than 1,300 episodes.

Even so, he had even more work on his resume that was also rather impressive.

For instance, he had a role in one of the biggest movies of the last decade, "American Sniper," playing the Navy recruiter who convinced Chris Kyle the SEALs were where he needed to be.

He also made appearances in some of the most popular TV shows, such as "NCIS," "The Rookie," "Suits," and "Ray Donovan."

But, as we noted, his bread was buttered on daytime TV, where he won three Daytime Emmy Awards.

As seems to be far too commonplace these days and in this generation, Miller struggled with manic depression, which was confirmed by his agent upon announcing Miller's death.

Miller, who was born in Oklahoma but raised in Texas, died in his Austin, TX, home.

He attended the University of Texas at Austin, then broke into the industry as a model.

His first break into TV was a small role on "CSI: NY," but he then landed a recurring role on "All My Children" in 2007.

That led to more small TV roles, but he eventually landed the role of Billy Abbott on "The Young and Restless," where he stayed until 2014, then moved over to "General Hospital."

Fans were quick to comment on his passing, with one fan summing it up perfectly, writing, "What a talent, gone way too soon. Fans will be talking about # BillyMiller's performances for years to come … there should have been so many more. Condolences to his family."

No further details have been provided regarding his death, but based on the comments made by his agent, this seems like it was likely a suicide.
