Three-time Daytime Emmy winner Billy Miller chatted with the Associated Press on taking over the coveted role of Jason Morgan on ABC’s General Hospital.
Miller who took over the role, formerly played by Y&R’s Steve Burton, said that to make the role his own he believes adding some levity to the character you play in this very dramatic genre is a good thing.
Billy noted: “It’s more fun in this genre whenever you can add some lightness to it or make it funny. You don’t get a lot of room for that, so I usually look for it. It’s a scary position for this guy who is so lost and doesn’t know who he is, (so) you match that with a little bit of humor.”
Working with Anthony Geary (Luke) in some scenes is something Miller would definitely up for, if and when Jason and Luke cross paths. Miller revealed, ““I can’t wait for that acting class.”
For now, Miller is looking forward when his Port Charles past and present worlds collide: “It really does offer up some great story if we decide to go there. I really hope that’s how we explore this because I feel like that might be more my strength.”
