Who would have thought that the movie series “Prison Break” would win such a huge audience, and the engineer-genius with the fate of a fugitive criminal, Michael Scofield, would become the idol of millions.
And who is he really – Wentworth Miller, the same adventurous and risky guy, like his character? The actor really does not like to give interviews about his personal life, but still a few facts from his biography have become known.
1. Why is the “third – superfluous”?
The full name of the actor is Wentworth Earl Miller the Third. He was born in England, in the small town of Chipping Norton, although his parents are Americans. The actor’s blood is like an explosive mixture – his mother is white, his father is a mulatto, and French, Syrian, Jamaican, Danish, Libyan and Russian blood also flows in his veins. When creating the captions of the series “Prison Break”, the producers decided that “Earl” and “Third” would be superfluous and too bulky for the not-so-popular actor, and on the set everyone began to call him simply Miller.
2. How did the lawyer get to Hollywood?
At the insistence of Father Earl Miller II, Vent graduated from Princeton University and received the profession of a lawyer, like all men in his family. However, from an early age, Miller dreamed of escaping from a boring “paper” future, and instead of studying at Princeton to engage in acting. The road to Hollywood was difficult, in five years he received more than 450 failures at film screenings. Then fate became more favorable to him. Vent got his first role in the series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” the actor’s talent was noticed and invited to star in another series, “Dinotopia.” Then there were successful roles in the action movie “Another World” and the melodrama “Tarnished Reputation”. Miller was slowly but surely moving towards success, but real popularity fell upon the actor immediately after the release of the first episodes of “Escape …”
3. Is there a real “puzzle” on the actor’s body?
The famous tattoo on the body of Scofield, of course, is not real. To get such a “chic picture” on the body, the actor had to endure the procedure for applying this “puzzle” every day for 5 hours. And in the evening, all this “art” had to be washed off with a solvent, otherwise the erased pattern could leave stains on clothes and bedding.
4. Is there time left for friends and hobbies?
According to Miller, he loves to read, his favorite novel is “Carrie” by Stephen King, he likes the film of the same name based on this novel. He also loves the musical “Jesus Christ is a Superstar.” After filming the series, Vent became very friendly with his partners on the set – Sarah Wayne Callis (Sarah) and Owen Kravsky (Kellerman). They like to spend free time together, although each of them has a busy schedule and there is very little time left to rest.
5. Hollywood’s sexiest lips?
It was in this nomination that the young actor was recently awarded a prize, who managed in a short time to win millions of hearts around the world. The actor himself behaves more than modestly, star disease has not yet hit his head. The actors Miller wants to be level with are Anthony Hopkins and Nicole Kidman, perhaps because they were his partners in the film The Tarnished Reputation and probably left a great impression on their acting skills and moral principles.
6. What roles did Miller not want to play?
Ironically, it was precisely those movie roles that made him popular that Vent at the very beginning of his acting career preferred to bypass. He swore to his parents that he would never make money on his attractive body, and would never play criminals. But fate, the villain, decided in her own way. Having exposed his magnificent torso in the series “Buffy …”, Vent became recognizable and got his first fans. Well, about the “criminal” roles, it remains only to remain silent. Although the viewer loved his idol Scofield so much that now he is considered an idol for millions.
He is loved, imitated, new wonderful roles are expected from him, the actor’s fan clubs grow in all countries like mushrooms after rain. What else does an artist need, if not the recognition of the audience, especially since his career is just beginning.
