“General Hospital” actor Billy Miller died at the age of 43 on Friday in Austin, Texas. This was unanimously reported by US media, citing an official statement from his management on Sunday evening. Details of the death have not yet been disclosed. However, the statement states that Miller suffered from manic depression. Other US reports also speak of bipolar disorder.
Miller became known primarily thanks to his six-year engagement in the cult medical series “General Hospital” between 2014 and 2019. There he appeared in front of the camera in a total of 592 episodes before leaving the series.
He also had recurring appearances in well-known productions such as “Suits”, “Ray Donovan”, “Shadows of Passion” and “All My Children”. For his performance in “Shadows of Passion,” Miller was even awarded a total of three Daytime Emmy Awards. Miller also appeared in films. Among other things, he was seen in the Oscar-nominated Clint Eastwood film “American Sniper” alongside Bradley Cooper (48).
Miller also took on a role in the highly acclaimed Apple TV true crime series "Truth Be Told." Miller was in front of the camera for the last time in 2022. Last year he made his last appearance in the popular crime series “Navy CIS”.
As the management statement continues, Miller leaves behind his mother Patricia, sister Megan, brother-in-law Ronnie, nephew Grayson and niece Charley and "a large number of friends and colleagues." They will “miss his warm personality, his generous spirit and his genuine kindness.” A public funeral service is currently not planned.
