Discovered: Wentworth Miller maybe the dashing man in the prison uniform now, in the fox breakout hit "Prison Break" but for a long time he worked as an intern behind the camera. He is no stranger to the camera either. He had his first taste of stardom in a role as the sensitive and introverted David in ABC's mini-series "Dinotopia" in 2002. It was a story about a world where humans and dinosaurs live together in a magical civilization. From this effects-driven adventure story, Miller moved on to The Human Stain (2003) in which Miller had the opportunity to observe and work with the legendary Anthony Hopkins. The two share the film's central character, Coleman Silk, Miller playing him as a young man before the story moves forward in the tempestuous life of this Ivy League professor. Miller has something else in common with the great British Hopkins: though he was raised in Brooklyn, Miller was actually born in the UK - in Chipping Norton, England where his father, a Rhodes Scholar, was studying.
A graduate of Princeton, Miller's stage time during college was spent singing, and he traveled the world performing with the school's famed acapella group; The Princeton Tigertones. After graduation, he knew that there was something in showbusiness for him so he headed to Los Angeles to pursue a behind-the-scenes career in the entertainment industry. Before long the drive to move in front of the camera became inescapable. With the support of committed management, within a couple of years Miller landed guest spots, learned fast and earned attention on series including "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997) and "Popular" (1999).
Now he is in Chicago filming the smash Prison Break and recently was in the pilot episode for "The Ghost Whisperer," and Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together" video. There is plenty of Wentworth to go around and we will no doubt be seeing more of this hot young star!

Quotes: "When I got to college, acting suddenly seemed like a very risky proposition and all my friends were going to law school or med school or Wall Street."
"You might look at my CV and see I've had 12 jobs, but I've been to over 450 auditions so I've heard 'no' a lot more than I've heard 'yes'. So if I go in looking only to meet my own standards, then that will make taking that rejection a little bit easier. And when I do get that job it will seem like icing on the cake."
