Wentworth Miller is an American actor, model, screenwriter and producer. He raised to stardom after his role as Michael Scofield in the Fox television series Prison Break.

He was born in England, to American parents, and was raised in Brooklyn, New York.

School College

He attended Midwood High School in Brooklyn, New York, and was a member of ‘SING!’, an annual musical production that was started by Midwood. His family moved to Aleppo Township outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he graduated from Quaker Valley High School, in Leetsdale, Pennsylvania, in 1990. He graduated from Princeton University, completing his bachelor's degree in English Literature. While at Princeton, he performed with a group the Princeton Tigertones and at first was a member of the Quadrangle Club, and later the Colonial Club.

Father, Mother, brother and sister

Miller is of multiethnic origin: his father is of African-American, Jamaican, English, German, Jewish, and Cherokee background, and his mother is of Russian, French, Dutch, Syrian, and Lebanese ancestry.


He publicly came out as gay in August 2013, when he posted a letter on a website declining an invitation to attend the Saint Petersburg International Film Festival because he felt deeply troubled by the Russian government's treatment of its gay citizens, referring to anti-LGBT legislation enacted in the previous June banning propaganda of nontraditional sexual practice.

Career and struggle

Miller migrated to Los Angeles in 1995 to work behind the scenes for a small production company specializing in movies made for TV.  He realized he was meant to be on camera and focused on his acting career, finally leading to him landing guest appearances on various hit TV shows, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997), ER (1994), Popular (1999), and the Hallmark series Dinotopia (2002).

Miller’s career continued to grow in 2003, landing a role in the feature film The Human Stain, directed by Robert Benton and starring Anthony Hopkins and Nicole Kidman, followed by an appearance in the action-packed film Underworld. He later starred on Joan of Arcadia and Ghost Whisperer (2005) before obtaining his breakthrough role in television hit Prison Break (2005).  His performance as a structural engineer who goes to prison to break out his brother earned Miller a nomination for a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series.
