Actor Billy Miller, known for his roles in series such as “Suits”, “American Sniper” and “General Hospital” died at the age of 43, on Friday (15), in Austin, Texas. So far, the cause has not been reported.
According to information from “Variey” magazine, Miller’s manager confirmed his death on Sunday (17), the date on which the actor would have celebrated his birthday.
“The actor was struggling with manic depression when he died,” the statement said.
Born in Tulsa, in the US state of Oklahoma, Billy made his career debut as a model. Between 2007 and 2008, he was part of the cast of the ABC soap opera “All My Children”, playing Richie Novak.
The actor won three “Daytime Emmys” awards, in 2010, 2013 and 2014, for playing Billy Abbott, in the drama series “The Young and the Restless”.
Upon leaving the project, he joined the cast of “General Hospital”, where he remained until 2019 and then joined the cast of “Suits”, in five episodes.
Additional credits include appearances on “NCIS”, “The Rookie”, “Truth Be Told”, “Major Crimes”, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”, “Castle” and “Enormous”.
It’s worth remembering that he was also in Clint Eastwood’s 2014 war drama “American Sniper” and Craig Brewer’s 2016 TV movie “Urban Cowboy,” starring Nathalie Kelley.
On social media, Billy’s friends also mourned the actor’s death.
“A lot of feelings, but you’re gone too soon and I’m happy to have worked with you all these years, but also to call you a friend. I hope you are at peace now,” wrote the actress Chrishell Stause, who shared the set with Miller on “All My Children.”
“I am very sad to hear of the passing of Billy Miller. His infectious charm and warmth left lasting impressions on all of us who were lucky enough to have him in our lives. I’ll miss that mischievous smile. I love you Billy”, actress Eileen Davidson said on “X”, formerly Twitter.
