Wentworth Miller was born in England in 1972 to two American parents. His father is Black with African-American, Jamaican, English, German, Jewish and Cherokee ancestry. His mother is White and is of Russian, French Dutch, Syrian and Lebanese ancestry. Miller’s father was a Rhodes Scholar and was studying at Oxford when Miller was born. Both of his parents are teachers, and his father is also a lawyer.
Miller is an actor and model, as well as a rising screenwriter and producer. He is best known for his lead role in the TV drama Prison Break, as well as for playing a recurring character in The Flash. He appeared in two music videos as Maria Carey’s love interest and played a younger version of Anthony Hopkins’ character in The Human Stain. In this film, Hopkins plays a man who passes for White, and Miller felt very tied to this story, no doubt due to his own unidentifiable appearance.
Miller received his Bachelors in English from Princeton University, and he has written two successful scripts, Stoker and The Loft, the former of which he also co-produced. Miller has been nominated for a number of high profile awards and won the Saturn Award for Best Guest Starring Role in Television for The Flash.
