Actor Billy Miller Is TV's Gold Standard Leading Man
This week’s Leading Man Gold Standard goes to the handsome, Emmy-winning daytime TV actor Billy Miller, who came crashing through our TV screens this week in a highly emotional reunion with the love of his life, ex-wife Victoria Newman. Miller portrays spoiled Genoa City scion Billy Abbott on “The Young and the Restless,” but the only thing spoiled about Miller, is we fans of his work are spoiled now, and could never stand to see anyone else in the pivotal role that keeps getting more exciting every week, thanks to Maria Arena Bell.
“Y&R” has some of the greatest actors on television. From Eric Braeden, Peter Pergman and Doug Davidson to Joshua Morrow and others, it’s a show that keeps moving forward despite the attacks from the daytime press, but needless to say, viewers love seeing Miller in the role of Billy Abbott, and this week we realized just why we love him so much. Miller played scenes of shock and being stunned, when wife Victoria found him in town and confronted him about not being there for his daughter Delia. Billy explained to Victoria that he was there, but that her dad was also keeping them apart.
The mood went from anger on Billy’s part to intimate love and longing for the woman he loves. Billy Miller plays every scene so exciting and viewers just can’t get enough of the guy that keeps on getting better in his acting role every single day. Fans all want to know what Billy’s secret is all about, and what his ex-father-in-law Victor Newman, better known as the King of Genoa City has over his son-in-law’s head, and now that Billy’s admitted partial truth, we know that although Victoria won’t push him to reveal more in the coming days, that it’s only a matter of time before it all comes crashing down around this fabled couple, and look out, because Billy Miller will be on the short-list of Emmy contenders again next year for his excellent work on “The Young and the Restless.
“Y&R” airs weekdays on CBS.
