After months of fan buzz that General Hospital wasn't exactly being kind to Billy Miller by pushing him out of the role of Jason Morgan when the coffee importer's original portrayer, Steve Burton, returned to the show, the actor is opening up about the unexpected character switcheroo.
It was only within the past couple of weeks that Miller's character was revealed to be Jason's twin, Drew Cain, and the actor says he's quite satisfied with the story direction.
“I wouldn't stick around if it wasn't really cool,” he tells Soap Opera Digest of his alter ego's latest turn of events.
Miller also disputes the sentiment some fans hold that he was disrespected in the way GH handled Burton's return. “I wouldn't be there if I was being disrespected,” he states matter-of-factly.
Meanwhile, Kelly Monaco (Samantha McCall) shares that she's also happy with the way the powers that be have handled the Burton/Miller situation so far.
“It's the last thing that I, Kelly, expected,” she says. “But I'm super-excited to have Steve back.”
