McKinley Franklin editor Billy Miller, the Daytime Emmy-winning actor from “The Young and the Restless” and “General Hospital,” died on Friday.
He was 43. Miller’s manager confirmed the news to Variety in a statement on Sunday, which would’ve marked the actor’s 44th birthday. “The actor was struggling with manic depression when he died,” the statement reads.
Miller was born on Sept. 17, 1979, and grew up in Grand Prairie, Texas. Throughout his childhood, he battled with Tarsal coalition, a rare condition that affected the cartilage in his ankles.
His break into the entertainment industry came when he was signed as a model to Wilhelmina, going on to play Richie Novak for a short while in the soap opera “All My Children.” Then, Miller would move over to “The Young and the Restless” to take over the role of Billy Abbott.Read more on variety.com
