Aside from Elizabeth Hendrickson, other former costars of Billy Miller during his tenure on “The Young and the Restless” posted about the memorial. Michelle Stafford, known for her role as Phyllis Summers wrote on her Instagram story: “Lovely of the producers of #YR and @CBS and @Sony to halt production this morning and let the cast and crew tell stories and share. Incredibly decent and beautiful.”
The memorial comes shortly after Miller’s mother confirmed the soap icon’s heartbreaking cause of death. Even though Miller hasn’t appeared in any daytime soap since 2019, they honored him in commendable fashion, earning much gratitude for the move. However, it wasn’t only Miller’s costars expressing appreciation for the show and network for providing the memorial space. Many fans flocked to X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, to express their thoughts on it as well which were overwhelmingly positive. One viewer tweeted, “It’s what this king and legend deserves.”
With “Y&R” leading the charge in honoring their former star, viewers are also calling on Miller’s other soap home, “General Hospital” to follow suit. A fan wrote, “I would like to kindly request you all do a memorial to Billy Miller, who did such an outstanding job as Jason/Drew. It was so tragic. And you’ve lost many treats this year — goodbye Bobbie, Epiphany, and now Jason/Drew.” Despite celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, “GH” has seen several of its current and former stars unexpectedly pass away, leading to the aforementioned request.
