“The Young and the Restless” viewers weren’t exactly thrilled when popular actor Billy Miller announced that he would be exiting the role of Billy Abbott, but the rough waters were mostly calmed when former portrayer David Tom (brother of “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Heather Tom [Katie Logan]) swooped in to take back the role. It’s been a fairly smooth transition for most viewers, but jumping into the middle of such an intense storyline — the death of Delia and having been outed for cheating on Victoria (Amelia Heinle) —was a bit of an adjustment for the actor!

In an exclusive interview with TV Guide‘s Michael Logan, “The Young and the Restless’” David Tom reveals that he had to audition for the role of Billy Abbott when the series was looking to recast the character when contract talks between current portrayer Billy Miller and Sony Pictures Television proved to be unsuccessful. This was despite the fact that Tom garnered two Daytime Emmy Award nominations in the category of Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series in 2000 and 2001 (he won in 2000) for his portrayal of the character.

While Tom doesn’t air until Monday, February 3, the actor also talked with the publication about Billy finally learning Adam (Michael Muhney) was behind the wheel of the car that killed Billy’s daughter Delia and what it means for the future of the character now that he’s back in the role.

CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” is gearing up for an actor switch in the coming weeks for the character of Billy Abbott, currently played by Billy Miller.

In a newly released behind the scenes image, the series has given fans their first glimpse of David Tom back in the role right alongside his character’s onscreen wife, Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman). This marks the fist time that the two actors have been seen together on set as Tom left the soap in 2002 and Heinle joined the series in 2005. In a bit of irony, while their characters are married on the show, the role of Victoria was originally played by Tom’s real-life sister, Heather (currently playing Katie Logan on “The Bold and the Beautiful”), back in the day.
