The mother of soap star Billy Miller, who died Friday at 43, released a statement that thanked fans and explained how her son “fought a long hard valiant battle with bipolar depression.”
Patricia Miller said via X that her son “loved his friends, his family and his fans but in the end the disease won the fight and he surrendered his life.”

Miller was a three-time Daytime Emmy winner known for his roles on The Young and the Restless and General Hospital. He would have celebrated his 44th birthday Sunday.
The outpouring of support from colleagues and fans has been a constant on X over the last 24 hours, with many posting pictures and video from his time on the daytime dramas. Although Miller is best known for his soap roles, he also played Marcus Specter — Harvey’s younger brother — on Suits for several seasons.
“Very sad news for the entire Suits family,” Suits creator Aaron Korsh wrote on X. “Billy Miller has passed away. I flew home once with Billy. We had a great time, bonding over the five hour flight, which seemed like it was over in minutes. A funny, smart, kind, gentle man.”
