As reported by TV Source in June, Billy Miller is set to exit General Hospital. The actor, who originally signed on to the ABC soap to appear as Jason Morgan in 2014 but was later to be revealed as Jason’s twin, Drew Cain, once Steve Burton returned in 2017.
Marnie Sparer, Miller’s agent, released a video from the actor on Twitter which ends with the following statement:
With a slight air of sadness, it is time to ponder what “goodbye” means. However, instead of dwelling on what is gone and sure to be missed, there is another way. Maybe our goodbye is really remembrance of love felt, an appreciation for lives shared, and the lifelong reminisces that come from embraces and receives. Maybe our goodbye is an earnest hope for the brightest path forward for us all. Now, instead of sadness, I am filled with gratitude for all your support, encouragement, and every emotion shared. I cherish the journey we have taken together. Thank you for allowing me into your home and lives. With every ounce of myself, I think you for being you. I would be remiss in this crazy, unpredictable world we all love so much if I did not hold out the possibility that maybe our goodbye is really… until next time.
All my love,
Miller previously played the role of Billy Abbott on The Young and the Restless from 2008-2014. He also played Richie Novak on All My Children from 2007-2008. In addition to his gig on GH, Miller has guest-starred on Suits as Marcus — Harvey’s (Gabriel Macht) brother.
Officially. Billy. Miller.
