Multiple Daytime Emmy winner Billy Miller has died.
Miller, who was famous for his roles on The Young and the Restless and General Hospital died Friday, Sept. 15, aged 43.
In recent years Miller, who began his professional career as a model, took on the role of Marcus Specter in USA Network’s Suits.
“Very sad news for the entire Suits family,” Suits creator Aaron Korsh wrote on Twitter/X. “Billy Miller has passed away. I flew home once with Billy. We had a great time, bonding over the five hour flight, which seemed like it was over in minutes. A funny, smart, kind, gentle man.”
Miller’s management issued a statement saying he was manic depressive.
The Young and The Restless’ Y&R’s Melissa Claire Egan wrote “My beautiful friend. I love you. I’m so sad. And I’m so sorry.”
Eric Braeden added:
“We lost BILLY MILLER! It saddens me deeply! He was a very gifted actor! Amelia(Victoria) and I took him to dinner one evening while he was in tough negotiations, and I remember telling him to reconsider, because rarely is an actor given a part that describes him almost perfectly, and to not make the mistake I had seen some actors make over my 60 years in the business, that they are indispensable! Once an actor thinks that or is told that by some sycophants, they step onto a slippery road…usually to oblivion! “BILLY BOY” was not only a damn good actor but a nice man! May he rest in peace and meet up with KRISTOFF in the BEYOND, ‘the undiscovered country from whose bourn no Traveller returns “ and tell each other jokes! They were both loved by their colleagues!”
The Bold and the Beautiful writer Bradley Bell commented in a statement “Billy Miller was a great man and a gifted actor. Billy left an indelible mark on The Young and the Restless with his brilliant portrayal of Billy Abbott. He will be sorely missed.”
In his lifetime Miller won 2 Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series and another for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.
He also made guest appearances in Ray Donovan, and Truth Be Told.
