Wentworth Miller Stars In Video To Raise Depression Awareness

Wentworth Miller, DetailsWentworth Miller stars in a new video to help raise awareness around living with depression and to encourage those suffering to reach out for help.

Miller is most known for his role in the TV show Prison Break. He came out as gay in 2013 when he chose to speak out against anti-gay sentiments in Russia. He has also shared that he tried to commit suicide more than once growing up. He also spoke out after being mocked for weight gain during a time when he was suffering from depression.

“Each year, depression affects an estimated 15 million people in the United States and 350 million worldwide,” Miller said in the video. “If depression is part of your story, there is hope. Don’t be afraid to take the first step. Someone cares.”

He encourages those in need to find a support group through the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, and for those in serious crisis to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK, or text “START” to 741-741.

Other resources available are Trans Lifeline, for trans and gender-nonconforming people considering suicide, at 877-565-8860. LGBT youth (ages 24 and younger) can reach the Trevor Project Lifeline at 1-866-488-7386 or text “Trevor” to 1-202-304-1200

Wentworth Miller Talks to CBS About ‘Prison Break’ & Stunts at 44

Wentworth Miller
Wentworth Miller is equally pumped for Fox’s limited-series Prison Break revival as the rest of us.

ET’s Leanne Aguilera caught up with the 44-year-old actor at San Diego’s Comic-Con on Saturday, where he spilled on the series’ fresh new take.

“[My co-star] Dominic [Purcell] tells me that we did a Prison Break [panel] at Comic-Con when the show was originally airing,” Miller said of the cast being at the convention for the original show, which ran from 2005 to 2009. “I have no recollection of that, but I just trust that he’s telling me the truth.”

“It’s nice to be back, even though I don’t remember what happened before,” he added. “But it makes sense to me in a strange way that Prison Break is at Comic-Con, because it’s got kind of a comic book element to it and always has, so in that way, it feels like a marriage.”

Miller is reprising his role as Michael Scofield, and he joked that performing his own stunts once again has been, well, interesting now that he’s in his mid-40s.

“[Stunts are] a lot different at 44 then they were at 34,” Miller explained. “I do what I can, but if I need my character to look cool and like he knows what he’s doing and my stunt double can execute that better, then I’m happy to step aside. It’s just in service of telling the best story possible.”

In addition to Miller’s exciting Prison Break revival gig, he recently entered into a series regular contract with Warner Bros. that will allow him to portray roles in various Greg Berlanti-produced shows simultaneously, including DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash, Deadline first reported.

“Yeah, it’s a sweet deal,” Miller, who is no longer a series regular on Legends, gushed. “It’s the most fun I’ve had as far as a character.”

“I have a lot of respect and love for Michael Scofield, but Captain Cold is a good time, and so the opportunity to kind of pop up and do a little song and dance for The Flash or Legends – and then get out and then not have to do the expositional heavy lifting that Michael Scofield has to do, it’s a good time,” he added.

But when it comes to choosing between playing a villain or a hero, the Princeton grad says he doesn’t have a preference.

“I like a degree of both,” he revealed. “I like characters that are somewhere in the shades of gray – not strictly black, not strictly white.”

Last month, Miller’s Prison Break co-star, Purcell, suffered a gruesome injury while filming scenes for the highly anticipated revival when an iron bar fell on top of him, resulting in a major gash in his head and a broken nose.

Miller later described the traumatizing experience in detail when ET visited the show’s Vancouver set.

Wentworth Miller Talks to People About Depression

The complete article:
Wentworth Miller, August Man
Earlier this year, Wentworth Miller was confronted with a painful image – an Internet meme that struck such an emotional chord that the actor decided to open up for the first time about the depression he’d battled his entire life.

“I was having a really strong emotional experience and I needed to get it out,” Miller tells PEOPLE exclusively of his decision to write a reactive Facebook post. “Articulating how I’m feeling, that’s a life-saving practice. And it’s part of my self-care.”

The meme featured two side by side photos of Miller, one from 2006 when he was in peak shape, and one from 2010, when the Prison Break star, semi-retired from acting, had gained weight. The caption read, “When you break out of prison and find out about the McDonald’s Monopoly.”

“I knew whoever was responsible didn’t know me or know anything about me,” Miller, 44, says now. “They didn’t have a clue what kinds of issues they were bringing up for me.”

Those issues were lifelong struggles with depression and suicidal thoughts. In 2010, when the second photo was taken, Miller had resorted to binge eating to make himself feel better. Amid everything else at that time, the actor, who also now stars on the CW’s Legends of Tomorrow, was also agonizing over another secret – he is gay, but hadn’t come out publicly.

Finally, after coming out in an open letter to the St. Petersburg Film Festival, in which he declined an offer to attend their event based on Russia’s treatment of the LGBT community, “I was grateful,” Miller says.

And since then, things have been looking up. The actor is filming the Prison Break reboot (which premieres next year) and says, “I haven’t experienced a major depressive episode in maybe three years,” he says. “I try to stay really aware of where I’m at and what’s up for me.”

Continues Miller: “And I’ll just emphasize how important it is to reach out if you think someone is in crisis. The tiniest gesture can have a huge impact. Just let them know they’re not alone. It can make a difference.”

Wentworth Miller Named Cybersmiler of the Month

Wentworth MillerWentworth Miller was named the Cybersmiler of the month of March by the organization Cybersmile for his positive response to online bullying and body shaming.

“In 2010, fighting for my mental health, it was the last thing I needed,” Miller wrote on Facebook in response to the post. “Long story short, I survived. So do these pictures. I’m glad. Now, when I see that image of me in my red t-shirt, a rare smile on my face, I am reminded of my struggle. My endurance and my perseverance in the face of all kinds of demons. Some within. Some without… The first time I saw this meme pop up in my social media feed, I have to admit, it hurt to breathe. But as with everything in life, I get to assign meaning. And the meaning I assign to this/ my image is Strength. Healing. Forgiveness”.

The Lad Bible, who shared the pictures with their vast audience of over 11 million Facebook followers, immediately retracted the post and issued a statement apologising to Wentworth following his emotional essay.

Prison Break Revival Details Officially Announced

Wentworth Miller, Michael Scofield, Dominic Purcell, Lincoln Burrows, Prison BreakFox has officially ordered the revival of Prison Break to series after ordering a pilot script five months ago, according to TVLine.

Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell, who played Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows, the brothers who stated off the series, have both signed on to return. Talks are currently in progress with Sarah Wayne Callies and Robert Knepper, to reprise their roles as Sara Tancredo and T-Bag, respectively.

The series is expected to film this spring, with a nine-episode run most likely.

“The story unravels on an international landscape — it’s not a domestic [plot],” Dana Walden, the co-chariman/CEO of FOX, said. “We open on a very international contemporary-feeling story.”

The Fox drama’s original producing team, including series creator Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead, will executive-produce the new series, with Scheuring serving as showrunner.

Currently, Miller and Purcell star together on the CW’s Legends of Tomorrow and Callies stars on Colony.
