He also appeared in the music videos “It’s Like That” and “We Belong Together” by Mariah Carey in 2005.

Wentworth Miller was born on June 2, 1972, in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, England. His full name is Wentworth Earl Miller III. When Miller was born, his American parents, Roxann, who was a special education teacher, and Wentworth, who was a teacher and lawyer, were living in England because Wentworth was a Rhodes Scholar at the University of Oxford. Wentworth’s father is African-American, German, Jamaican, and English. His mother is Rusyn, French, Lebanese, Swedish, Syrian, and Dutch. When Miller was young, his family moved to Park Slope, Brooklyn. He went to Midwood High School in Brooklyn and Quaker Valley High School in Leetsdale, Pennsylvania, and graduated in 1990. Wentworth got straight A’s in high school and worked on the school newspaper and joined the AV club. After high school, he went to Princeton University, where he was the cartoonist for the school newspaper and sang with the a cappella group The Princeton Tigertones. Miller got his A.B. in English in 1995. After that, he moved to Los Angeles and started working for a company that made TV movies. Leigh and Gillian are Wentworth’s younger sisters.
Miller first appeared on TV in a 1998 episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” Two years later, he was in a “Romeo and Juliet” movie that was made for direct-to-video. From 1999 to 2000, he was a guest star on three episodes of “Time of Your Life,” a spin-off of “Party of Five.” In 2000, he was on “Popular” on The WB and “ER” on NBC. Then, in 2001, Wentworth was in the short film “Room 302” and the ABC miniseries “Dinotopia,” both of which were part of “The Wonderful World of Disney.” In 2003, he was in “The Human Stain” with Anthony Hopkins and Nicole Kidman, and in “Underworld,” which made $95.7 million at the box office, he played Dr. Adam Lockwood. Miller had guest roles on the CBS shows “Joan of Arcadia” and “Ghost Whisperer” in 2005. He also acted in the short film “The Confession,” lent his voice to the big-budget film “Stealth,” and got the lead role on “Prison Break.” Since his character’s torso was covered in tattoos, Wentworth had to spend more than four hours every time he filmed an episode of the show getting fake tattoos put on. Between 2005 and 2009, “Prison Break” had 81 episodes and a TV movie called “Prison Break: The Final Break.” In 2017, a ninth episode was added to the fifth season. In 2020, he said that he would no longer play straight characters and that he didn’t want to be in any future seasons of “Prison Break.”
After the original run of “Prison Break,” Miller played Detective Nate Kendall on NBC’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” in 2009, was a guest star on Fox’s “House” in 2011, voiced Slade Wilson/Deathstroke on “Young Justice” in 2013, and played soldier Chris Redfield in the 2010 film “Resident Evil: Afterlife,” which made $300.2 million at the box office. In 2014, he started a recurring role as Leonard Snart/Captain Cold on “The Flash.” In the first season of “Legends of Tomorrow,” he had a main role, but for the rest of the series, he had a recurring role. His “Prison Break” brother Dominic Purcell played Mick Rory/Heat Wave on both shows. While playing Barry Allen on “The Flash,” Wentworth appeared in the 2014 movie “The Loft” and the 2015 short film “2 Hours 2 Vegas.” He was also a guest star on the CBS show “Madam Secretary” in 2019, and he came back to “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” in 2019 to play A.D.A. Isaiah Holmes.
Life at home:
In 2013, Wentworth came out as gay in a letter on the GLAAD website. He said he wouldn’t go to the Saint Petersburg International Film Festival because of Russia’s LGBT propaganda law and the fact that “people like [himself] are being denied their basic right to live and love openly” in the country. Miller told the Human Rights Campaign Dinner crowd in 2013 that he had tried to kill himself several times when he was a teenager. He also talked about why he decided to hide his sexuality after “Prison Break” made him famous. He said, “When I thought about the possibility of coming out and how it would affect me and the career I had worked so hard for, I was scared.” In 2016, a meme made fun of his weight. Miller responded on Facebook, saying that the photo was taken in 2010 when he was suicidal and using food as a coping mechanism. Active Minds, a charity for mental health, made Wentworth an ambassador in October 2016, and he was the keynote speaker at the group’s national conference the following month.
