Billy Miller, star of General Hospital, has died at the age of 43 after a struggle with “manic depression”, it has been confirmed.
The tragic news was first made public by soap opera journalist Michael Fairman, with a number of news outlets soon picking up on it over the weekend.
According to TMZ, representatives for the actor told how Miller was locked in a battle with “manic depression” at the time of his passing, though no cause of death has yet been revealed.
The 43-year-old, who featured on General Hospital from 2014 to 2019, is said to have died on Friday, September 15 in Austin, Texas, a mere two days before he was set to turn 44.
After getting his big break via landing the role of Richie Novak on All My Children, Miller went from strength to strength when he joined the cast of The Young and the Restless in 2008.
It was through that show that he won his first Emmy nomination – and win – in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category. He was nominated for a second time in 2011.
