EXCLUSIVE! Y&R’S NEW BILLY ON SNAGGING ROLEBy SOD Posted: May 28, 2014
In an exclusive interview with Digest, Y&R’s newest addition, Burgess Jenkins, who replaces the recently ousted David Tom as Billy Abbott, shares how the part became his. "My managers contacted me and said the folks from the show had reached out about the role,” explains the actor. “So, I talked with the producers about it and they filled me in on the role and it was apparent to me from the get-go that this was a wonderful character with interesting layers. I met some of the cast and we clicked right away. Not only are they terrific people, but I can tell we’re going to have a great time. I was taken with this opportunity right away.” Check out the issue on sale June 16 for the rest of the interview.
