In 1999, David Tom joined his sister, Heather Tom, on the set of "The Young and the Restless." David remained in the role of Billy until 2003, leaving the soap when his sister did, however, he made a small comeback in 2014 as an adult Billy.
After David Tom left "The Young and the Restless," the role of Billy Abbott went to Ryan Brown. He played the part in 2003 for about 10 episodes after already playing another soap opera Billy, Bill Lewis, on "Guiding Light" from 1998 to 2000.
Billy Abbott came into his own when actor Billy Miller took over the part in 2008 and remained with "The Young and the Restless" until 2014. He played a recast, Jason Morgan, on "General Hospital," winning three Daytime Emmys along the way.
After Billy Miller departed "The Young and the Restless," Burgess Jenkins took over the role of Billy Abbott in 2014 and remained in the role until 2016. Jenkins came to the soap after being a semi-regular on the series "Army Wives" from 2009 to 2013.
As Burgess Jenkins left the soap, Noah Newman hit Billy Abbott with his car, putting him in a coma; when Billy awoke, Jason Thompson played him. Thompson's performance as Billy earned him an Emmy nomination for best lead actor in a drama series in 2020.
