Wentworth Earl Miller III was born on June 2, 1972 and is an an English-born American actor who achieved fame as Michael Scofield in the Fox Network’s television series Prison Break.

Miller’s father is of African, Jamaican, English, German Jewish, and Cherokee descent, and his mother is of Russian, French, Dutch, Syrian, and Lebanese descent. In an interview, Miller said: “My father is black and my mother is white. Therefore, I could answer to either which kind of makes me a racial Lone Ranger, at times, caught between two communities.”

He was born in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, England, where his father, a Rhodes Scholar, was studying. His family moved to Park Slope, Brooklyn, New York, when he was one. He has two sisters, who are both currently practicing law.

Miller’s first three years of high school were spent at Midwood High School in Brooklyn, where his nickname was “Stinky”. He then transferred to Quaker Valley Senior High School in Sewickley, Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh, where he graduated in 1990. In 1995, he graduated from Princeton University with a degree in English Literature. While at Princeton, he performed with the school’s a cappella group, The Princeton Tigertones.

Subsequently, he headed to Los Angeles, California, to pursue an acting career. He ended up spending years doing behind-the-scenes work to support himself before devoting himself seriously to auditioning for acting roles.

Miller’s first starring role was as the sensitive and introverted David in ABC’s mini-series Dinotopia. After appearing in a few minor television roles, he moved on to co-star in the film The Human Stain (2003), playing the younger version of Anthony Hopkins’ character.

Miller further increased his profile in 2005 by obtaining the starring role as Michael Scofield in Fox Network’s television drama, Prison Break. His performance in the show earned him a 2005 Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Dramatic Series.[7]

Also in 2005, Miller made appearances in the music videos of Mariah Carey’s “It’s Like That” and “We Belong Together” (consequently, Entertainment Weekly’s website named it the 2nd sexiest music video cameo of all-time). Both music videos were directed by Brett Ratner, who directed the series pilot of Prison Break. According to Brett Ratner on the DVD audio commentary for the “Pilot” episode of Prison Break, Wentworth Miller auditioned for the role of Superman/Clark Kent when the Superman Returns project was still under Ratner’s directorial control.

Dashing Depp – Johnny Depp

johnny_depp_36.jpg

Born in Kentucky and raised in Florida,Depp had the kind of upbringing that would readily lend itself to his future portrayals of brooding lost boys. After his parents divorced when he was 16, he dropped out of school a year later in the hopes of making his way in the world as a musician. Depp fronted a series of garage bands; the most successful of these, The Kids, was once the opening act for Iggy Pop. During slack times in the music business, Depp sold pens by phone. He got introduced to acting after a visit to L.A. with his former wife, who introduced him to actor Nicolas Cage, who encouraged Depp to give it a try.

Off screen, Depp has dated several female celebrities, and has been engaged to Jennifer Grey, Winona Ryde and Kate Moss. He was married to Lori Anne Allison in 1983, but they divorced in 1985. Currently, Depp is living with French singer-actress Vanessa Paradis, with whom he has two children: Lily-Rose Melody born in 1999, and Jack born in 2000
