GH Nurses’ Ball 2023 Part Four: Magic Milo and the Magic Wands Return, Bobbie Gets a Tribute, Anna in Critical Condition

On Friday’s part four of the 2023 General Hospital Nurses’ Ball episodes, the drama off-stage picked up, while a fan favorite act made its comeback with an all-new male configuration.

In story, Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) has just shot Anna (Finola Hughes) at the safe house.  After firing a shot into her abdomen he flees the scene with his henchman, leaving Anna bleeding out on the floor and Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) calling 911, before she passes out.


Back at the ball, Nina (Cynthia Watros) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) are trying to find out how Liesl (Kathleen Gati) truly vanished following the magic act she was a part of at the ball. This raises serious concerns from Nina that tomorrow Liesl is supposed to undergo her medical procedure to donate bone marrow to save Willow (Katelyn MacMullen).

Scheming Gladys (Bonnie Burroughs) successfully plants the million dollar bracelet in Cody’s (Josh Kelly) tuxedo jacket costume backstage, and then plays it out in front of Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) and the bodyguard that someone must have took it.

Back on-stage, Maxie brings on Magic Milo and the Magic Wands, who portray doctors in their male stripper number.  In the 2023 version, Milo (Drew Cheetwood) is joined by Dex (Evan Hofer), Cody, TJ (Tajh Bellow), Yuri (Cyrus Hobbi) and two other male dancers.  Backstage, Drew Cheetwood’s real-life little girl, Grace Cheetwood, has a cameo.

After his performance, Cody comes backstage and runs into Gladys, Sasha, Mac (John J. York) and the bodyguard. Gladys points the finger at Cody for taking the necklace and Mac arrests him.

Victor has made it to his ‘headquarters’…  the Haunted Star. He gets updated intel on the location of Holly Sutton (Emma Samms) from one of his henchmen.  Victor realizes she is looking for her son Ethan, and not recovering from her ‘injuries’.  In addition, Victor learns Lucy (Lynn Herring) escaped the safe house and has one of his men tracking her down at the Nurses’ Ball.  In a call with Spencer (Nicholas Chavez), Victor tells him, if he wants to get little Ace away from Esme (Avery Pohl), he is to come to the Haunted Star now and not tell anyone. Trina (Tabyana Ali) has already been upset with Spencer’s behavior all night towards Dex and being not forthcoming as to what exactly is troubling him.

Carly (Laura Wright) takes the stage and pays tribute to her mother, Nurse Bobbie Spencer  (Jackie Zeman) and honors her for her dedication and service to General Hospital for 45 years. This acts as the tribute to Jackie Zeman for her 45 years on GH.  As Bobbie tears up, we get a series of special flashbacks including: the B.J. heart transplant story, coming to the aide of Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) after she was raped, and being there for Monica (Leslie Charleson) following her cancer biopsies and more.  Everyone in attendance gives Bobbie a standing ovation.

Bobbie returns the favor towards the end of the ball paying tribute to her frenemy the ‘late’ Lucy Coe.  However as she speaks, Lucy has made it backstage at the ball.  Lucy is then caught by one of Victor’s henchmen who holds a gun on her.  Next, she somehow manages to grab a boa off the costume rack and throws it in his face. Apparently, that is just enough to distract him, until Sonny (Maurice Benard) appears and knocks the guy out.  It is then that Maurice Benard delivered the best line of the entire Nurses’ Ball, when Sonny turns to Lucy and says, “A boa? Really.”

Back on-stage, as Bobbie recites Lucy’s backstabbing beginnings in Port Charles, she changes her tone about how Lucy found her love for the Nurses’ Ball in 1994, and it changed her.  As Bobbie says “Lucy isn’t here tonight,” all of a sudden, Lucy trips backstage and falls through her own photo and plops right on the stage as Bobbie welcomes her home, and everyone in attendance gives Lucy a rousing round of applause and a standing ovation.

At the hospital, Valentin, Laura (Genie Francis) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) are informed Anna is in critical condition and will be taken to surgery immediately to try to have the bullet removed from the shooting.  Meanwhile, Spencer arrives on the Haunted Star and asks Victor what’s going on with Ace. Suddenly, Spencer hears noises in the background and gets suspicious. Victor says they’re setting sail.

Laura returns home and finds Ace’s pacifier outside her door, and when she heads inside, she is stunned to find Esme knocked out on the floor and her place turned upside down.

So, what did you think of part four of the GH Nurses’ Ball? Did you enjoy the tribute to Bobbie Spencer? Did Lucy’s entrance harken back to Nurses’ Ball of yore? What will happen to Spencer, Ace and Victor? Were you glad to see the ‘Magic Wands’ back in action? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out the performance by ‘Magic Milo’ and the gang.

First, the positives…
The tribute to Bobbie and JZ’s 45-year tenure as the hooker turned nurse with a heart of gold was special, unexpected and well-deserved. Congrats to Jackie.

Lucy falling through her own photo was hilarious and adds to the tradition of her mishaps on stage. Loved how she avoided Bobbie’s attempt at a hug.

Drew Cheetwood still looks F-I-N-E fine. Was that random girl in the backstage scene his real life daughter?

Nobody gives better facial expressions than Genie Francis. JPS has such a wide range of emotions – he really deserves an Emmy.

Onto the not-so positive:
It’s a bad look to combine a male-strip act in the same week as the me-too scenes with BLQ and Blaze. The Wands need to be retired.

Nice seeing Yuri, but where the heck is Terry? The Chief of Staff is missing from the Nurses Ball and Epiphany’s memorial?

If that’s it for the Ball – why didn’t we get a song from the best voice in the cast – Wally Kurth?

Robert answers a call in the ballroom saying “Valentin” so anyone can hear him addressing a ‘dead’ man. The day player diamond security guard called Mac “detective” Scorpio instead of Chief.

Finally, per the closing credits on Friday, Charles Shaughnessy (Victor) appears to no longer be on contract. Based on story, looks like he’ll be around for a bit still.

Your points are all excellent here.
I feel that for the 60th they should’ve tried for more history for us vs some of the plot stuff.
I could care less about Gladys/Cody and Sasha. None are longer term characters that are really part of the history of the show.
Same for Blaze and Linc. That comeuppance could’ve come in a regular show.
The Cassadine plot was woven into the history of the show. That part I get.
Terry being absent bothers me too. Poor Liz (a legacy character) stuck alone at a table. And finally we get Genie in an episode. GF not being used for the 60th was for me a misstep.
JPS singing was a must. Missing WK too as well as a legacy show stopper (loved DP but she’s not part of GH’s history) here.

I’d guess that Gladys is on her way out based on plot developments. Sasha will likely be off screen for a while (based on the obvious hiding of Sofia’s baby bump the past month). Since they made Cody a Scorpio, looks like he’s here for a while.

Linc is reportedly also departing soon. Good actor, annoying character. Blaze has a great set of pipes and totally carried the duet with Chase.

At least they made Genie the focus of the 15,000th episode. She supposedly hates the grueling long day shoots like the Nurses Ball and avoids it where she can. Similarly, Becky no longer performs. Her sitting alone was indeed strange.

Robert Scorpio should have been on hand at the Ball as well, as a legacy character. Plus the Ball is a favorite charity of Robin’s. I thought they might have been saving TR for a heroic appearance at the safe house, but this is an unforgivable oversight and missed opportunity.

Just a brilliant summation, OG Steve. I agree with your every word. I’m embarrassed to admit that I didn’t catch the disparity between the Magic Milo strip act and the Me Too Movement that Brook Lynn has brought to our attention. I think when the genders are reversed, soaps just don’t get it when it comes to sexual harassment and sexual assault.

And about Laura. I’ve always adored her but lately? Not so much. If I had a dollar for every time she called that amnesiac sociopath,” sweetheart” or “honey,” I’d be a millionaire. Why not just call her Esme, or why call her anything at all!? It’s weird, icky and it’s saccharine overload. The actress who plays Esme is really talented but the writing has failed her. She went from a sociopathic sadist to a simpering, whiny, cry- baby heroine. This actress was capable of nuanced complexity- she could have been a contender, she could have been a young Erica Kane.

Hi Harry
Yes, Laura calling Esme sweetheart throws me off a bit as well. Avery Pohl is indeed a good actress.

As much as I love Laura, her being mayor still bugs me. How does a city elect a mayor who leaves town for 3-4 months every year? One whose brother is a convicted mobster, brother-in-law was a serial killer while she herself was in a catatonic state for years? Ah, only in the world of soaps!

I also find “The Wands” an outdated embarrassment and definitely at odds with objectifying any person. Yes, Milo is still gorgeous and, even better, a sweetheart. I know I’m a minority but I don’t like Valentin’s singing but to each their own. Something is missing from The Ball..not sure I can pinpoint it or if it’s several things at once. I just haven’t really enjoyed it much yet.

What is the connotation of Sonny saying “boa, really” to Lucy?

One of Victor’s thugs followed Lucy to the Nurses Ball. She was hiding out backstage when the thug found her and she was attempting to defend herself with any object she could find, the last of which was a pink feather boa. That’s the point where Sonny came in behind the thug and knocked him out, and was a little amused that Lucy was trying to use the boa as a weapon.

She had a pink feather boa in her hand that she was smacking the gunman with lol

Because she was trying to fight off a guy with a gun using a boa.

What defensive effect can a Boa provide her she doesn’t have the strength or opportunity to strangle him

Does anyone know the name of the song and/or who sings the song that was playing during The Wands performance?

Yeah, something was missing for me too. Being that it was the 60th anniversary, I would have thought that we might see flashbacks of a few of the beloved Quartermaines, Edward, Lila, Alan, Tracy, as well as Steve, Audrey, and a bit more of Jessie. I think I might have seen one little picture of each of them, but come on!

The dresses this year were just below awful, with almost everyone wearing slightly different versions of the same dress. Only Trina, Nina, and Lucy left the sparkles at home, but then besides that, their dresses were super boring, with not a lot of style! And why was Maxie wearing what looked to be a Blazer and pants, as opposed to a gown, being she was the co chair of the nurse’s ball?

As for the talent, some of it was good (TJ, Joss and Trina were all refreshingly entertaining) but it just seemed like something was off. There was more backstage mingling, than there were acts. I liked Chase and Blaze, but it seemed that really none of the acts had that umph of previous shows–Jack Wagner, Wally Kurth, Rick Springfield, John Stamos, etc ..

Terri already wasn’t at the Memorial service for Epiphany, but then to miss the nurse’s ball too?

Now for the Liesl fiasco… I thought that Sonny’s “people” were always “watching out for” and “GUARDING” Nina, Liesl, Spencer, his kids, etc ..? How would someone be able to grab her without being seen? Me thinks that Sonny needs a new staff (calling Max & Milo!)

Where the heck is Charlotte??If she was supposed to be staying with Laura and Kevin, why haven’t we seen her, and why does it always seem that Esme is there alone? They know that Victor is up to something, so why weren’t they more careful with Ace’s and Charlotte’s safety?

As for Gladys setting up Cody, that’s the last straw for me with her! I thought that she was changing after Brando died, but she is even worse, stealing from Sasha, and then trying to put it all on Cody! Bust her Cody… NOW!!!

I hope that next year, they really amp it up, and Lucy will be back at the helm!

MrsDee59, I totally agree, especially regarding Gladys. But what irks me most, and rings falser than those bejeweled gowns, is Cody’s “deer in the headlights” expression when Gladys accused him. WHY THE HECK wouldn’t he come clean and admit his “stalking” was because of her nefarious, underhanded stealing of Sasha’s money? Who benefits from keeping quiet? Certainly not Sasha or himself or even Gladys for that matter. Dumb move, as was lying about his paternity. He sure isn’t gonna win any ‘smarts’ prizes.

Cody would have to admit he participated on a regular level in illegal gambling operations and his connection to Selina. Now, he could’ve pulled Sasha aside to tell her, but Mac was around and would still have to arrest him. The writers could have handled it a bit better.

Hi, it’s been a while but “the Bitch from Bridgeport” is driving me crazy, hope she’ll be gone soon. I know you don’t like Cody but I’ve got kind of a mother hen thing about him. I think he’s got a low self esteem, etc. That’s the main reason he’s lying to Mac, thinking he doesn’t deserve Mac and a family. I think he’s also got a soft spot for Sasha and knows how hurt she’d be if she learned the truth about her and what she’s been doing with her money, also her disappointment in him when she finds out what he’s been up to.
One last thing that been driving me crazy. I know people pronounce their words differently depending where they were raised or whatever. Nina and her constant “AUWNT”Leisel vs Aunt(ant) every 5 maddening. Maybe it’s the way she says it with her nasal voice and ordinarily it wouldn’t bother me, I use either or from time to time, so it really isn’t a critical thing of her pronunciation, help me here!

The AuWNT vs ANT kind of bugs me too. Watros’ use of AuWNT is not as bad as Stafford, when it was over pronounced. As Nina is a child of money, she could’ve had diction coaching that teaches to avoid the hard A where possible.

OG Steve,
Glad you get it. I know it’s silly but she just keeps repeating the darn word until I have to shut off the sound. Sorry, but you will have to explain about the Stafford thing, I’m just not getting that.

Stafford started the whole “AUWNT” pronunciation and it was more annunciated. At one point, Stafford also called Anna “AH-NA” at which point Finola corrected her.

The Nurses Ball was Great with or without Lucy. She has to let other people have a glow in the Spot Light for a time.

I have always found Lucy very annoying, conceited and obnoxious.Loves to toot her own horn and thinks no one has any worth but her. Obviously, it’s just me because cast and fans alike fall at her feet.

Lucy’s idiotic actions put Anna in the line of fire. All because her ego needed stroking. Then Lucy blithely prances off to the Nurse’s Ball with nary a concern about Anna or Valentin. But this isn’t Lucy- she’s inherently a good person. I blame the current writing team.

Hey Harry
Yes, the writing could’ve been a bit tighter there, but Lucy did mention when she got to the ball that she had to find Robert. Victor’s goon then went after her. After Sonny knocked him out, Lucy got distracted by her own tribute.

So much was going on and each law enforcement character – Robert, Jordan, Mac & Dante – were shown to already have left the ball. Thus, we didn’t see Lucy getting questioned.

Something that dawned on me yesterday – did Lucy ever mention Serena while being held captive? Yes, the Nurses’ Ball is Lucy’s “baby” but how about a mention of the child she gave birth to?

I’m 86 years old,and I loved the MAGIC WAND performance!!!!!

I’m 67 and I did, too. I hope it’s on every year.

More power to you Eleanor and Patricia.It isn’t my cup of tea but I love hearing that it reawakens the spring in you. This is a good thing.

OG Harry,
I’m 90 and it bored the heck out of me, except what was going on in the background. I think Ned and Olivia should have done a number together.

Violet – thank you for always sharing your insights with us here. I hope I’m still chiming in on my favorite shows when I reach your milestone.

Wendy Riche nurses ball vs Frank Valentini nurses ball, one was classic the other Cheesy, they are just vastly different but it is what it is, Still love my G:H but there’s a lot of things that still irritate me. I wish Valentin and Anna and even Robert were better WSB agents or ex WSB agents. They were so lame with Victors goons, and I love Anna, just wish she was more kick ass super spy, I mean how many times did Lucy escape?

At this point, the Nurses’ Ball should simply be a gala, with maybe one or two special guest performers (a-la Danielle Ponder) and have it a fundraising-type of event.

The good, bad and the silly of the Nurses Ball.

The Good: The opening number was good.

The Bad: The male strippers. It doesnt bother me one bit BUT what if Sam did a striptease on the show, the ME TOOS would have burnt ABC to the ground!

The Silly: Anna getting shot. She is going to live and we know it. Chase is not a singer. They really dont have anything for Brooke Lynn to do? Linc again? Going after Blaze. Trying to groom Joss? DUMP! Why doesnt Brook Lynn go ask Sonny to make Linc disappear? Or why doesnt Joss call uncle Jerry and have him take care of Linc? Dumb! Gladys and Cody need to go yesterday! Irrelevant. And Terry not performing at the NB. Maybe she didnt want to?

Bonus: The NB was a snore. There were about 12 people in the audience, not enough good entertainment and mostly because they tried to do two things at once and failed at both, The Nurses Ball and celebrate GH’s 60th Anniversary. The 60th should have been a prime time show like Y&R did with their 50th.

So, no Robin at the Nurses Ball?! Was she mentioned? Unacceptable.

At the safe house, Anna was shown talking about Robin’s connection to the ball with both Valentin and Lucy. At the actual ball, I don’t recall their being a mention (not from Robert, Mac, Felicia or Maxie).

Looks like the beginning of the end, for old Uncle Victor anyway. I hope Trina is a help instead of a hinderence. At least Leisel has a brain, if she gets the chance to use it. I would think The Haunted Star would have been top of the list knowing he’d try escaping by water. I bet the end results will be them not recovering his body, so we’ll never know.

General Hospital’s John J. York On His Health Battle & Living Life While Waiting for Bone Marrow Transplant: “Let’s Just Go One Day At a Time”

John J. York’s positive outlook on his current medical diagnosis is quite remarkable, as his approach might be one many facing the same circumstances might consider.  The beloved General Hospital vet, where he has played Mac Scorpio for 22 years, revealed last week that he is battling cancer.

The popular soap star shared that he has been fighting myelodysplastic syndromes, or MDS, and multiple smoldering myeloma: two blood and bone marrow disorders.

York spoke with PEOPLE about how he found out about his diagnosis, the support his wife Vicki has shown throughout, and how he lives life day to day, while he waits for an all-important bone marrow transplant.

Photo: JPI

The actor shared what happened the moment he learned of his diagnosis: “(The doctor) was explaining all these different things and cells and all different levels and words that had, you know, 25 letters in them. And I didn’t understand. And Vicki finally came out and said, ‘Does John have cancer?’ And he said, ‘Yes.’ And I’m sitting there, I’m really just like a fly on the wall, listening to him talk to Vicki because she was the one asking all the questions.  At the end of his doctor’s conversation with Vicki, York’s one question was simple: ‘Why do I feel so good?’”

Vicki and John were in the process of moving to Tennessee to be closer to their daughter, Skyler, but considering UCLA in Los Angeles as John’s treatment center.  In the end, Skyler’s husband suggested Vanderbilt University for John’s cancer center so he did not have to travel back and forth to the west coast.

Since March of this year, John has had IV chemo treatments every month, with another one coming up in September. On that, John expressed: “It is what it’s, you know what I mean? And then everybody’s gotta get their treatment. And then you go home, go about your life and you play with the kids. And here we are.”

Currently, York is waiting for a bone marrow transplant. He has been moved up the donor priority list. If anyone is interested, and you are between 18-40, you can join the registry here

Photo: JohnJYorkX

York shared how Vicki is coping with what’s ahead: “Yeah, she’s scared, but believe it or not, I really kinda wasn’t because I feel great. Personally, I feel like it’s in God’s hands. God’s will be done. It’s gonna work out okay, one way or another. I’m either gonna survive or I’m not. And life goes on and things are gonna be okay for everybody… Let’s just go one day at a time.”

Share your well-wishes, and support and love to John, as he goes through the next phase of his health battle and let’s hope a bone marrow transplant donor is found for him soon. After all, we all want to see Mac Scorpio return to Port Charles, but more importantly, we all want John to feel better and beat this.Comment below.

Billy Miller’s Mother Issues Statement On His Passing

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.”

Billy Miller Remembered by His GH and Y&R Co-Stars As They Share Grief on His Passing

UPDATED: On Sunday, longtime friends and co-stars of actor Billy Miller took to social media to share their remembrances and sorrow on the passing of the three-time Daytime Emmy-winning star.

Miller passed away on Friday, September 15th as first reported and confirmed by Michael Fairman TV.  While the official cause of death has not been revealed, it has been related to the press by his management that Billy was suffering from manic depression.

Billy played Jason Morgan/Drew Cain on General Hospital from 2014-2019, and prior to that won 3 Daytime Emmys for his role as Billy Abbott on The Young and the Restless from 2008-2014.  He started his soap career on All My Children in the role of Richie Novack back in 2007-2008.

Below are just some of the tributes pouring in for Billy:

Eric Braeden: “We lost BILLY MILLER! It saddens me deeply! He was a very gifted actor! Amelia(Victoria) and I took him to dinner one evening while he was in tough negotiations, and I remember telling him to reconsider, because rarely is an actor given a part that describes him almost perfectly, and to not make the mistake I had seen some actors make over my 60’years in the business, that they are indispensable! Once an actor thinks that or is told that by some sycophants, they step onto a slippery road…usually to oblivion! “BILLY BOY” was not only a damn good actor but a nice man! May he rest in peace and meet up with KRISTOFF in the BEYOND, ‘the undiscovered country from whose bourn no Traveller returns “ and tell each other jokes! They were both loved by their colleagues!”

Melissa Claire Egan: “My beautiful friend. I love you. I’m so sad. And I’m so sorry.”

Chrishell Stause: “Still processing this. Too many feelings, but you are gone too soon and I’m so happy I got to work with you all those years, but also call you a friend. I hope you are at peace now ”

Jess Walton:RIP to my precious Billy Miller. You were and ARE  much loved by all of us who knew you”

Daniel Goddard: “The world is going to be just that little bit more dull without you in it… you had that “it” factor that lit up every room you were in. Rest In Peace Mate ”

Nancy Lee Grahn: “So very sorry to hear this very sad and unexpected news. I would like very much for my beloved General Hospital to have no more of it. #RIPBillyMiller

He didn’t blink when I asked him to put on this shirt to help raise up the marginalized artists in our industry. He always seemed to have his heart in the right place and I always laughed when I was around him. #FlightOfAngels#RIP #BillyMiller #bereft”

Frank Valentini: “I am devastated to hear news of the incredibly talented Billy Miller’s passing. On behalf of the entire (General Hospital) family, our hearts go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.”

Elizabeth Hendrickson: “Today I should have been sending you a Happy Birthday text BJ. Truth be told i hated calling you BJ but that’s what your closest friends /family called you. I eventually caved. The last couple years we kept in touch through birthdays and monumental moments or when we wanted to vent about “ work”. You gave me a lot of advise. When i understood it always mumbling your words. We always joked about that.
We didn’t text or talk often. But I’m glad the last couple times we did, we had a great banter like we used to. I knew that we always held a special place in each others hearts, no matter what. You were such an amazing friend to your inner circle. They were your family. You would do ANYTHING for them. That’s who really were. As loyal as they came. I’m sad and yes, mad at myself that I wasn’t being a better friend, checking in more often because I was thinking of you recently. I was. I hope you know that we are all here now texting each other, sending pictures and sharing memories of how fucking AWESOME you were. This hole in my heart will never be filled. Goodnight, sweet Billy.”

Scott Clifton: “This is not fair. We deserved so much more of him. Rest in peace, Billy. You’re immortal now.”

Coby Ryan McLaughlin (ex-Shiloh, GH): “Man… this sucks. Billy and I played on GH together for nearly a year. He was intense, focused, cool and kind. He knew the hamster wheel that I was about to start spinning on all too well, and always made himself available to help the new guy….. Rest easy, man…

Michael Muhney (ex-Adam, Y&R):  “Billy, My fellow Texas brother. You lit up every room with your smile. Your quiet intensity onscreen was second only to your gentle kindness and genuine care in private. We recently shared work on an Apple series, and your encouragements during and after that process, and your kindness over the years are now but a few of the things I’ll hold on to as warm memories of you. What a big heart you had. You were bigger and braver and bolder than this life. You were legend. There is no landing to this final cliffhanger, the wings you’ve spent your lifetime earning have carried you up to that wonderful place in the sky. Happy Birthday Billy Miller.”

The Young and the Restless:The daytime community mourns the loss of Billy Miller who graced Y&R with his talent for many years as Billy Abbott. Our deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones.”

Kathleen Gati: “I am beyond sad to hear this tragic news.#BillyMiller was always so kind, professional and a wonderfully talented colleague  @GeneralHospital Deepest condolences to his family, friends and fans.”

TK Weaver: “Devastated. Hard to find words. You always gave me such good advice. You were always there for me. You were an amazing person. #BillyMiller I’ll never forget you. Please join me in praying for his family and loved ones.”

Greg Rikaart: Generous, passionate, fun, soulful and brilliant Billy. Can you just imagine the reunion between him and Jeanne? I can. Rest well, dear Billy

Sean Kanan: “Shocked and saddened to hear that Billy Miller is no longer with us. He was a terrific actor and always kind when we would see each other. I pray that his family and friends find comfort and peace during this unimaginably difficult time. #BillyMiller #YR”
