Wentworth Earl Miller III is a British-American actor widely renowned for his work on television. He is widely known for his role as Michael Scofield in the Fox series Prison Break, for which he received a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Television Series Drama in 2005.
Wentworth earned praise from critics and garnered media attention from his first major film role, as John Kennex in the 2013 thriller Stoker.

The Rise to Fame of Wentworth Miller
In 1995, Wentworth left his hometown to pursue an acting career in Los Angeles. Although it took him a long time and there were a lot of upsets and failures along the way, he never stopped pursuing his dream because being an actor is something that he needed very much like air is to every human being. He was cast this way on Buffy the Vampire Slayer (“Go Fish,” 1998).
Wentworth’s first starring role came in ABC’s 2002 mini-series called Dinotopia. In the following years, he appeared in other minor roles on television shows and films like The Human Stain (2003), where he played the younger version of Anthony Hopkins’ character, Coleman Silk.
In 2005, Wentworth was cast as Michael Scofield in the Fox Network’s TV Series “Prison Break.” With only four episodes aired by the time it was canceled a year after it first aired, Prison Break follows a group of inmates working to help get one of their own out of prison.
Wentworth plays the role of an engineer who risks everything to execute a plan that may prove his brother’s innocence. His performance earned him a 2005 Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Dramatic Series.

Wentworth Miller’s Sexuality
Wentworth denied that he was gay to InStyle magazine. However, he came out in 2013 by posting a letter on GLAAD’s website declining an invitation to attend the Saint Petersburg International Film Festival. His reason was that he felt “deeply troubled” by the Russian government’s treatment of its gay citizens.
“I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly.”
Wentworth said that he had attempted suicide multiple times before he came out as gay. A mental health charity, Active Minds, announced that Wentworth was their ambassador in 2016.
To conclude, Wentworth doesn’t have a wife, and details about his past or present relationships were not publicized. But, rumors are circulating that the actor has a boyfriend.
