Wentworth Earl Miller III was born on June 2, 1972 in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom. Wentworth is of Black, Jamaican, English, German, French, Dutch, Syrian and Lebanese descents. He graduated from Quaker Valley Senior High School in Leetsdale, Pennsylvania (outside of Pittsburgh) in 1990. Wentworth went to Princeton and graduated with a degree in English. His stage time during college was spent singing, and he traveled the world performing with the school's famed a Capella group, The Princeton Tigertones.
Miller's first major role was as the sensitive and introverted David in ABC's mini-series Dinotopia. After having appeared in a few minor television roles, Miller moved on to co-star in the film The Human Stain, playing the younger version of a racially confused character played by Anthony Hopkins. Though the movie was critically panned and unsuccessful in the box office, Miller's performance received virtually unanimous critical praise. Wentworth is currently playing Michael, on the hit FOX drama show, Prison Break.
