At A Glance
Born on September 17, 1979, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and raised in Grand Prairie, Texas, Miller attended the University of Texas in Austin where he received a communications degree and was one of only twenty students in the film department's intensive Production Sequence. After college, Miller worked as a trainee at Industry Entertainment and took classes within Austin's State Theatre.

It was at Industry when Miller was talked into acting professionally and decided to enroll in more intense acting classes. Bartending helped him pay for those classes and even leveraged a second career for him as well. Miller has his own company called 4M, building and operating bars.

Miller joined the cast of All My Children in September, 2007 and has appeared in CSI: NY and many national commercials.

As Miller's star rose, he was cast as Billy Abbott on The Young and the Restless in 2008. Miller would win three Daytime Emmys during his time on the CBS soap -- a Lead Actor win in 2014 and Supporting Actor wins in 2010 and2013.

After six years, he left the Y&R and moved to General Hospital, where he was recast as the infamous mob enforcer Jason Morgan. However, in 2014, Steve Burton returned to the role of Morgan, and Miller's character was revealed to be Jason's long-lost identical twin brother, Drew Cain. In 2018, Miller received his sixth Daytime Emmy nomination for his work on GH, but he exited the role a year later in 2019.

Miller supports 46 charities that donate to Sunflower Children, a humanitarian aid organization providing survival and developmental care to orphaned, disabled, abandoned, refugee and impoverished children.

Miller passed away on September 15, 2023.
