Beloved General Hospital star Billy Miller confirmed his exit from the ABC soap with a heartfelt message to his scene partner Kelly Monaco. No doubt, Billy will be missed by his many fans and co-workers alike. Clearly, Billy put a lot of time and effort into getting the video and farewell letter just right. Certainly, his fans mean the world to him and he wanted to get that message across.
Additionally, he closed the video with a heartwarming message to on-screen love interest Kelly Monaco. Check out Billy Miller’s final video to his countless GH fans tweeted yesterday from his agent. It seems he’ll miss the show and appreciates the fans. But it’s his time as Drew Cain to her Sam McCall that’s hardest for him to let go on the ABC soap.
Billy Miller Will Be Greatly Missed at General Hospital
No doubt, GH fans will deeply miss seeing Billy Miller on their screens. Certainly, he came to the sudser with a difficult task. Remember, he took on the role of beloved, longtime character Jason Morgan. That’s after Steve Burton played the character for 20 years, then Stone Cold “died”. So, stepping into a role like that couldn’t have been easy.
However, Billy made the character his own and showed a new side to Jason Morgan that fans loved. Then, when Steve Burton came back, Billy transitioned from Jason Morgan to Drew Cain. Certainly, he made that character a lovable one as well. No doubt, Billy is extremely talented and can take whatever is thrown at him. Surely, he will be missed on General Hospital.

Billy Miller Crafted His Goodbye Letter To GH Fans To Perfection
It is obvious that Billy Miller wanted the goodbye letter to his General Hospital fans to be perfect. Because, it looks like it took him several drafts to write his goodbye. Watch the video to see crumpled pages of a legal pad. Surely, this was to convey the process and effort involved as he wrote his message to fans to say goodbye.
Certainly, Billy took a great deal of time to craft this letter, he didn’t just jot it down quickly. Seems he wants his fans to know that. In addition, he typed it on a classic typewriter. So, it had that personal touch. Obviously, Billy put a lot of thought into his farewell and GH fans everywhere will certainly appreciate it.
It’s also a nice reference to the fact that he’s anti-tech since he doesn’t do social media. The typewriter showed his love of things old-school as he ends his multi-year run on the ABC sudser.
