Actor David Tom will be joining the popular soap opera "The Young and The Restless." He will be taking over for actor Billy Miller who currently plays the role of Billy Abbott on the show. To see what Tom reveals about his character read on, but be cautious of spoilers.
David Tom is very familiar with the role of Billy Abbott because the actor actually played him from 1992 until 2002, according to TV Guide. But, in an interview with TV Guide, Tom said he does not feel uncomfortable returning to the show after such a long break.
"It feels totally comfortable and I'm smiling from ear to ear. It's like I'm still waiting to snap out of a dream. It's so great to be back working with Peter Bergman [Jack] and Jess Walton [Jill], again. And, of course, there are so many people who are new to me. Twelve years away will do that! When I left, Billy was more of a boy. Now I get to play him as an adult, with all his adult problems. I'm stepping into some really big shoes here. Billy Miller is a great actor who did an amazing job in the part. I definitely have some challenges. Fans can be resistant to change but I think they'll be happily surprised at what's coming up," he said.
Tom also revealed some spoilers about Billy when speaking to TV Guide. He explained how Billy copes with the knowledge of Adam being responsible for Delia's death.
"There's certainly no closure, but there's a change in the depth of his anger. Sooner or later, the healing process will have to begin. But, for now, he's furious that Adam did what he did and -- even worse -- kept it a secret. I can't even imagine what it would be like to deal with something like that yet, at the same time, I can relate. I'm an uncle now in my own life and if somebody did something to harm my little nephew, well ... I would definitely want to make that person suffer as much as possible," he said.
