GH Spoilers: Early Career, Breaking Into Acting
Early on, Billy’s career mainly consisted, as many actors start out, making commercials. After graduating from college, Miller moved to Los Angeles and worked in the mail room of Industry Entertainment, his first acting break after he signed on with the Wilhelmina modeling agency.
He appeared in a total of six commercials, including two for Electronic Arts’ The Sims, and did commercials for JCPenney, Pizza Hut and pokerparty.com. He tried out for a role on As The World Turns, but wasn’t hired, and lost his management company due to bad management.
Billy took a two year break, returning to the business in 2006, appearing on CSI: New York, and shortly afterwards got the role of Richie Novak on All My Children.

Although Billy never married, he became involved with his GH co-star Kelly Monaco while playing first Jason Morgan and then Drew Cain, and it’s been said the two remained good friends.
The cause of Billy’s death has been widely speculated, but until his family makes an official statement all those inappropriate wild rumors that are flying should be considered inappropriate wild rumors.
