Who else thinks Jason Thompson is rocking his Billy Abbott character on the Young and the Restless (Y&R)? While some fans may remember him as Dr. Patrick Drake during his 10-year tenure with General Hospital (GH), Y&R audiences are certainly warming up to this new Billy. There is so much more to this incredible actor than what he does on soaps, so here are 10 things you might not have known about the Y&R’s Jason Thompson.

10. Canadian Born

Thompson was born and raised in Alberta, Canada, and has said it’s hard for him to hide his Canadian roots because he constantly talks about hockey, wears a lot jeans and jean jackets, and will often frolic and roll around in the snow when it is part of a set! That’s because he misses the snow so much. Thompson ensures he visits the Great White North as much as he can because Canada is still home to him.


9. Huge Hockey Fan

It might not be a huge surprise to fans that Thompson’s hobbies include hockey and snowboarding. In fact, he’s a huge fan of the Edmonton Oilers (shocker) and in an interview he stated that he would never be a fan of another team until one of his kiddos starts playing in the NHL. That is commitment!
