GH’s Billy Miller Helps Raise Awareness For Child Abuse Prevention

General Hospital’s Billy Miller (Drew) is utilizing his celebrity to help bring awareness to one of the most important issues of our time, child abuse and its prevention, and over the weekend part of that mission was accomplished.

Miller, along with Kelly Monaco (Sam, GH) are participating in Child Abuse Prevention month, by starting a campaign to aid the Prevent Child Abuse America organization.

The Daytime-Emmy winning actor first tweeted: “Up for a challenge? In exchange for a new pic, please help gather 500 likes/retweets of this tweet over the next 24 hours. For every one we get, (up to 5,000), we will donate 20 cents to  Prevent Child Abuse America (www.preventchildabuse.org).  Let’s have some fun and do good together.”

Following the response to his “ask”, Miller wrote a letter sharing his gratitude after the enormous response: “Wow, thank you to all the good humans for spreading the word wisely by using social media for its intention to bring like-minded people together.  It was nice to have a bit of fun, especially while helping children in need in a small way.”  Miller goes on to thank his rep, Marnie Sparer for bringing the organization to his intention, and adds another special shout-out to Kelly Monaco.

To Monaco, Billy said, “Kelly, as always, you are the most generous partner anyone could wish for.  Thank you for backing me up.” He ended his note with, “Let’s keep it moving positively folks.”

What did you think about Billy’s efforts to help child abuse prevention, along with Kelly Monaco? Comment below!

Billy and Kelly are amazing people. Billy always puts his heart out there for children in need. Kelly, too. They are why I watch GH.

I really like Billy Miller. I think that Roger Howarth is doing a great job with this storyline. I would really like Drew and Franco to become friends, “brothers.” Both are in need of friends. I know that a lot of people are not fans of “Frodd;” but, I think that he has done an amazing job with the material, and I think that he brings a sense of civility and sensitivity to Franco.

Hi Dr. I love Franco and I love the vulnerability he’s brought to the role. I’d say Drew and Franco are already friends and in actuality Franco is Jason and Crew’s cousin which means he’s technically related to Sam and Liz’s kids, as well. Loving Drew and Franco!

Oh, rebecca1, how I LOVE these 2 actors/characters together. They both have such a sweet, vulnerable side. I also think this will be the nail in the coffin for Sam and Drew. Since neither Sam nor Jason are capable of forgiving anyone except Sonny, they won’t coddle to a Drew/Franco friendship. But I sure do. I’ve known about Billy’s charity work for a while; it reflects in the kindness and sensitivity of his eyes and his acting. He’s one of the good ones.

Isn’t Franco 2nd or 3 rd cousins with JASON n drew? And isn’t he half sibling with Liz half brother Steve Lars?

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

Hi, Aria. Yes. Wonder if Jason realizes that. So, in essence, Franco is cousins with Jason and Drew, brother to Steve (via Heather) and related to Jason and Drew’s kids! I love that Franco is actually related to lil Jake since they have such a bond. But, the way this show does things I’m not even sure that fact will be addressed.

I think Billy Miller did a wonderful thing and his efforts should be applauded. Child abuse is a horrific problem and the fact that Billy, along with support from Kelly and Marnie, tried to do some good for such a worthy cause is exemplary and something we should follow suit on.

Hi rose! I didn’t mean Billy Miller gets “whacked” but that Billy and his alter ego Drew gets slammed a lot from the, shall we say, more “enthusiastic” fans of Steve Burton. I meant that the REACTIONS are so over-the-top/whacked. 😉 As I mentioned in another comment, I think the tide is turning (LOL, as long as those “fans” are satisfied that he stays away from Sam and returns her to what they consider her rightful place beside Jason.) Drew fans counteract all the ways he’s better than Jason and then you have the fans who like both and are… Read more »

It’s all good, Jimmy….I guess it’s not so much about the role ( yet, I do love Nina), with me, but the actress, Michelle. I have been a ‘follower’ since my tween years ( Y&R).

Aside: scuttlebutt says JT will die…..won’t spoil it for anyone, but it’s a “mouth-agape” surprise, if true.

Billy Miller has done another generous act. He has shown his kindness before and by using his popularity and social media (which he isn’t even on) he has made people aware of Child Abuse. Truly a generous and admiral man. I also love the way Billy and Kelly are so supportive of each other..

Timing is pretty interesting. Now that Miller is the latest actor saddled with trying to make Howarth work on GH, he’s looking for good publicity and fans to rally around him. I’m sure he cares about kids, who doesn’t? But Miller knows Howarth is a flop on GH.
At the Killy event he admitted that Roger was miserable.

Miller has now been thrown into the muck and the day Drew rushes to help Franco and save him, we have this getting him some good PR. I’m also not too impressed with 20 cents leading to a possible $1,000.

I can’t imagine that Billy Miller said Roger was “miserable” at a fan event or would say that anywhere in public. If he DID say it he was probably being sarcastic/joking. There are many viewers who are loving Franco’s story and even those who aren’t fans of Drew because they’re so loyal to Jason (as if these were real people) but, even Jason fans have been thrilled with the Drew/Franco connection and these rediscovered childhood buddies. I think Drew’s story is just heating up and I’m loving his realization of how Franco saved him from Harvey as a child and… Read more »

No Miller said it. He said Roger’s miserable, he knows a lot of people can’t stand Franco. And I certainly believe it, but Howarth wants to work and since no one else is beating his door down, he’s Franco on GH; better than waiting tables. So Miller knows the game, that Frank tries to get more fans on Roger’s side, or to at least tolerate him, by getting other characters to prop Franco and therefore co-opt that actor’s fans for Roger. Many people are loving Franco’s story? Well, many aren’t and from what I see the one’s loving it are… Read more »

MB; I can’t imagine an actor telling fans that another actor who is currently on a show is miserable. I believe you heard it, I just don’t believe that it was in that literal context. That would be like a co-worker going to the big boss of a corporation and telling him/her that so-and-so is “miserable” and doesn’t like his job. Can’t imagine that would sit well for the “miserable worker’s” job stability, or in this case, with fans of the actor or character. If Billy did say that in the literal sense, doesn’t make common…sense. If Roger did say… Read more »

No, he didn’t say that. You can watch both shows on YouTube. The only thing he said about RH was that they get beers together but that RH doesn’t have as much fun as BM (I’m assuming meaning doesn’t drink as much). I’m sorry you don’t like RH, Franco or this story, but lying to drum up hate from others isn’t cool. I’m not a huge fan of the Franco character, though I do like RH. I was unsure if I was going to like this story arc after months of just talk about kids falling down stairs and rabbit’s… Read more »

Glad to read your post, BB. That clarifies what Billy Miller said and sounds like what I thought; some off the cuff “cute” comment that wasn’t “literal” regarding Roger’s feelings toward his role.

Glad you’re loving the story; many are! As some have pointed out elsewhere, Liz was a victim of rape, too. If anyone can understand Franco and have empathy for him, it would be her. Love this couple. I think it’s been a very “tender” story. (I think that’s the first time I ever used that word but it seems to fit how I feel about this couple.)

MB
Guest

BB, don’t accuse anyone of lying. The subject of Howarth came up and Miller said yeah, he’s miserable, he knows a lot of people don’t like Franco. Then he said something like, but Roger is awesome and does a great job. And as far as the story being socially relevant, it falls flat. The story isn’t primary, the actor is. This is just the latest attempt to redeem Franco to make Roger accepted on GH. Using the the topic of child abuse to try and prop up an actor, yes prop up, is pretty gross. First it’s DVD’s, then a… Read more »

Billy Miller did in fact say that Roger was aware of the fact that his character with was not popular with the fans and it was making him miserable. Rebecca’s probably right–it’s all in the delivery and I am sure Miller was kidding. Then again, as Freud said, “There is no such thing as a joke.” I do think Drew, Lizzy and Kevin have propped up Franco at their own characters’ expense. Okay, so after the tumor reveal and the child molestation reveal, we can say Franco’s journey on that long and winding road of redemption is over. I accept… Read more »

@MB….Whilst this latest charitable effort ties in nicely with his character’s storyline, this is certainly not the first time Billy Miller (and Kelly Monaco) have been involved in good works. I recall awhile back he helped an individual or group do some sort of fundraiser or awareness campaign in Texas, and Kelly’s been affiliated with a few different causes in the last decade, too. Thus, let’s give credit where credit is due….especially since it is now incumbent upon Miller’s Drew to be the umpteenth GH character to try and make the undesireable man-child Franco palatable…..I guess charity truly does begin… Read more »

I can’t fault Billy and Kelly for bringing more awareness to chid abuse awareness, especially since this is the story line Billy/Drew is living now on GH. And Roger is doing a phenomenal job as Franco, as is Greg Evigan playing the all around bad guy, Jim Harvey. So for naysayers, what does it hurt? But I must admit the $.20 thing seemed a little cheap. You would think ABC at least could help contribute more per the tweet ante. And didn’t like that Drew has to finish it off with a gun. Leave that to Scandal in the nighttime.… Read more »

Once a child is harmed, its too late! If you choose to have children, be a parent, not a supplier to the next census bureau statistic. Ask questions, do not let your child spend the night at a friends house who you have never met or you do not know their parents. Communication is something that solves many if not all your problems within the four walls of your home. Thank you Billy.

If they really wanted to tell a child abuse story, it would have been far better to let Billy Miller portray it, as something that happened to Drew in his past in the orphanage, group home, foster home, or where ever he was – once his own memories are restored from the disco ball, of course.

Instead they made it the 666th Frodd “redemption” story… and it’s still not working.

My dog Cerberus does appreciate Jim Harvey as his new chew toy though, so thanks for that!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Courtesy/ABC

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

Courtesy/ABC

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Courtesy/ABC

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
