THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS Star Jason Thompson’s Family Trip to Japan Was Interrupted by an Earthquake!


Jason Thompson (Billy, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) celebrated his birthday this past weekend, and jetted off with his wife Paloma and their nearly six-month-old son, Bowie, on a trip to Japan! Luckily, after the earthquake in the Fukushima Prefecture on Nov. 21, the actor reported that he and his family are fine.

“Love the wake up call in Japan!” he tweeted. “7.3 earthquake. 40 floors up. Nothing like starting the day with a good dose of rock’n’roll… and a ton of sway.”

Former GENERAL HOSPITAL castmate and friend Kimberly McCullough (ex-Robin) expressed surprise that he was in the Land of the Rising Sun, and Thompson responded, “Yup. First family Japan trip. Bowie’s first real earthquake shake. Apparently, the Japanese are very used to it. Not a worry. So sweet.”

The actor also shared a photo of Bowie taking in the foggy-but-still-spectacular view from their room to show the tot isn’t the least bit bothered.
