Miller’s GH costar Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis) posted this heartfelt tribute to Miller: “My experience with Billy personally & while acting with him, was that truth mattered to him.
Bipolar depression is real. Access to care & treatment for mental health issues remains problematic in US. I commend Billy’s mom for sharing his truth. It matters. He mattered.”
Miller died in Austin, Texas and his mother confirmed his death with this post: “He did everything he could to control the (bipolar) disease.
He loved his family, his friends and his fans but in the end the disease won the fight and he surrendered his life. The other causes of death being told are not true.”
