Patricia Miller, the mother of the late Billy Miller, has come forward and issued a touching statement on the tragic death of her beloved son at age 43.  The statement was shared by Billy’s longtime manager, Marnie Sparer, via social media.

Billy was best-known for his performances as Richie Nowack on All My Children, Billy Abbott of The Young and the Restless and Jason Morgan/Drew Cain on General Hospital, as well as countless primetime roles.  Throughout his career, Miller took home three Daytime Emmys for his work.

“I would like to share the following thoughts,” Patricia began. “I want to personally thank the many fans & personal friends for the overwhelming amount of love, prayers & condolences sent to me and my family on the devastating death of my beautiful son BJ – Billy Miller.”

Patricia continued with these sentiments, as she wanted to clear up any misinterpretations on this death: “He fought a long hard valiant battle with bipolar depression for years. He did everything he could to control the 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. I wish they were but they just aren’t. We all loved him so much and are desperately trying to deal with our loss. I will have nothing further to say. Thanks for the love and support.”

The soap world as well as Billy’s family, friends, loved ones, and colleagues are in deep mourning for this talented man, who was gone too soon.

So so sorry for you rest in peace.

I am so sorry for your loss. He was such a great actor. I loved him on Y and R. Depress is a hard diseases. I wish he could have gotten some help . Praying you and your family know he is at peace now and is with God. He will watch over you. God Bless your family.

It would be a wonderful world if all diseases had a cure..

Real-life bipolar is devastating, no cure..

And it affects all families in soulful heartache as they have no power to help..

I have a dear friend who suffers from bipolar and it affects me because

there is so much I want to do for her to lessen her misery, and I haven’t the power.

In the end Billy did it his way, heartbreaking..

The loved ones left behind their souls ach and hearts bleed, over their loss.

Su, This is a beautiful post.

He was such a great actor and he will surely be missed by his family and his fan we love and miss you Mr Billy Miller

So sorry for your loss!He was a great actor.

As many former cast mates mentioned how kind and generous Billy was, we now know where he got it from. Immensely thoughtful for Mrs. Miller to issue a message to fans in her most sorrowful time.

No need for anyone to speculate any further on how he died. Just remember him for the wonderful actor and kind person he was.

I’m so sorry for your loss. I understand that mental illness can take over your life. And there were times I tried, but God still keeps me here. I wish we can do more and talk more about Mental Health.

You will be truly missed billy.

How very sad

Lots of hugs and prayers and thank you for reaching out to all of Billy’s fans. He will truly be missed.

You are a brave and loving mother to come forth to put all his fans at ease to understand the pain of depression which does affect a lot of people during this time…just know that your son was well loved and cherished for the person in everyone’s life and all of his fans…as disheartening as this is i pray you find peace knowing how loved he was and i am sure he knew the love he was receiving but depression and worthiness are the devastating evil that has taken over so many people during this time and pray that it gets better understood and people begin to understand they are not alone…again my prayers and love for sharing your son with us…

So very sorry for the loss of your amazing son. He brought so much joy and love to all of his fans. He was so talented and will be truly missed❤️❤️May he rest in peace ❤️❤️

My condolences are from the depths of my heart. I KNOW your sorrow. God and family will see you through your loss. There is no more painful tragedy than that of losing a child. Beautiful Billy with his sunny smile is by your side and will remain so forevermore!! Let that gorgeous smile guide you throughout your life.

I’ve battled this disease my whole life, it’s tough, I am 65. Certainly Billy’s cause of death adds to the grief. May he rest in peace.

He was a remarkable actor!! Depression is such a terrible disease. It takes and takes, eats away until there is no more. It’s as bad as cancer! It robs the person of their livelyhood and us of our loved one. I followed Billy from Y&R to GH to his guess appearances, tried to keep up with him in between all of them but he was a private person. I will just have to keep his face fresh in my mind and pray that he has found peace. ❤️

My heart is broken at the passing of Billy Miller. He was taken too soon and still had a lifetime to go. He was a great actor on the screen.
Mrs. Miller, you and your family have my deepest condolences. He will be missed by us all who loved him.
Thank you for allowing him to entertain us on television.

My utmost condolences to you, your family and friends. I am also grateful to finally read the truth as there have been misconceptions regarding Billy’s death. He was loved by so many of us as a talented and lovely human being. I enjoyed his acting and mere presence on my TV screen and reading of his passing was one of the worst days of my life.My heart goes out to you at this painful time of your life.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful son with the world and now so bravely sharing his end. Weeping will endure for a night because joy comes in the morning! May God give you and your family the strength to endure this tragic loss and ease your pain in due time., God bless this family in their time of need.

I have been a GH fan since before high school I had a crush on Steve Hardy,,Audrey,Lucille etc.The best one I will never forget was Luke and Laura’s wedding!!!We were even watching in school!!

She was bipolar and she was a beautiful person she Helped Everybody, but the illness got to her I never did get over losing her but what helps me keep going as I know she she’s with the Lord and she’s at peace and I will see her one day. You are in my prayers as your whole family is❤️ God bless you, Patricia.

‘Santa Barbara’ Episodes May See Light of Day Yet; Will the Beloved Soap Opera Come to Streaming?

For decades, soap opera fans around the world have wanted a chance to see Santa Barbara episodes again. The soap, which first aired on NBC back on July 30, 1984 aired for only 9 seasons until the network pulled the plug after diminishing ratings and multiple changes in writing and producing regimes. The show last aired on January 15th, 1993.

Santa Barbara was co-created and initially produced and co-written by the legendary team of Bridget and Jerome Dobson. At the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmys, Jerome was honored with the Gold Circle medal for his over 50 years of work and accomplishments within the medium. Sadly his wife, Bridget passed away earlier this year in January at the age of 85.

The show featured an all-star soap cast throughout its run which included, at times: Marcy Walker, A Martinez, Dame Judith Anderson, Robin Wright, Justin Deas, Eileen Davidson, Lane Davies, Nancy Lee Grahn, Kim Zimmer, Jack Wagner, Jed Allan, Louise Sorel. Judith McConnell, Roscoe Born, Sydney Penny, Todd McKee, Terry Lester, Justin Gocke, Nicolas Coster and many more.

During a livestream conversation on Friday, June 21st, Jerome Dobson and A Martinez visited the Michael Fairman Channel to reminisce about the success and ups and downs of Santa Barbara and much more.

Many people in the live chat and many around the world (Santa Barbara was very popular internationally) have wanted to know with the legal issues it appears had plagued the show for years, if there would be a chance that fans could ever see Santa Barbara episodes again, and if they could become available or streamed?

Dobson shared exclusively, “Well, there’s some legal footwork being done right now about that kind of possibility. There’s been so much demand to see Santa Barbara, and so it’s not totally out of the question.” Martinez (ex-Cruz Castillo) reaction to that possibility was that of “Wow!” That was also the same reaction by several viewers watching the live conversation in the chat, because that would be a soap dream come true for many.

So, do you hope that the legalities can finally be worked out and you could relive the seasons of ‘Santa Barbara’ all over again? Let us know in the comment section below. You can check out the live chat with A and Jerome below, the moment happens around the 56:18 mark.
