Profile Bio Text
Wentworth Miller was born in England and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Miller is of multiracial origins; his father is of African-American, Jamaican, English, German and Jewish descent, and his mother is of Russian, French, Dutch, Syrian and Lebanese ancestry. Though he’s from a family full of academics -- his father is a Rhodes Scholar, his mother is a teacher, and both his sisters are lawyers -- Wentworth has been planning for a career in the entertainment industry from a very young age. He had his first taste of the acting bug while studying English at Princeton University. There, he joined the world-renowned a capella group, The Princeton Tigertones, and discovered that he had a real affinity for performing in front of big and small audiences.
After graduating, Wentworth decided to pursue his dream of working in the entertainment industry, so he uprooted himself and moved to California. He began the slow auditioning process and spent the majority of 1996 working as a production associate on three different made-for-television films. He finally landed his first screen role in 1998 in an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and followed that up with a succession of appearances on various television shows, such as ER and Popular. Wentworth’s breakthrough role came in 2003, when he was cast as Anthony Hopkins’ younger self in the critically-acclaimed The Human Stain.
Two years later, Wentworth landed the gig of his life after being cast as Michael Scofield on the FOX TV series Prison Break -- a show that became an instant hit and deftly cemented Wentworth’s status as one of the hottest up-and-coming actors around.
In 2006, Wentworth received nominations for Best Actor on Television and Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series at the Saturn Awards and Golden Globes, respectively. Wentworth also escorted the lovely actress Mariana Klaveno to the 2006 Emmy Awards.
