Steve Burton recently revealed that he and Billy Miller go way back. They first met in 2013 when Billy joined the cast of The Young and the Restless as Dylan McAvoy. When Billy decided to leave the show to take on his new role as Jason on General Hospital, the first person he called was Steve.

Steve told Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, “I heard rumblings about it once it happened. Billy and I talked. He and I were friends on The Young and the Restless, we worked together, and I was thinking like ‘Man, like who could do it?’ And you know, Billy can do it. [So], he called me and said, ‘Hey, I’m doing it,’ and I said, ‘Cool, go do it.’”

When Steve found out that he is returning to General Hospital, he called Billy to let him know the good news out of respect, too.

He told the publication, “I called Billy before I came back. I said, ‘Hey man you called me when you were taking Jason and obviously, you heard I’m coming back. I just wanted to tell you I’m looking forward to it and I hope you stay because I think we’re going to have some cool story.”
