I was collared with cuffs, admits Miller
WENTWORTH MILLER says the attention he gets from Prison Break fans can be a little arresting after one cornered him with a pair of handcuffs.
The US hunk, back on Monday nights in the rebooted Fox series, told Guilty Pleasures how he was accosted grabbing his daily caffeine fix.
Miller, 44, who has come out as gay since he last played serial jail breaker Michael Scofield eight years ago, explained: ‘I had a fan stake me out at a Starbucks. They knew that was the one that I went to almost every day. They had gifts for me; one of which was a pair of handcuffs. That was certainly a little, erm, suggestive.’
More than a decade on from when the US drama first hit TV screens, the actor insists on still taking the knocks on screen himself. ‘I try to do as much of the action as I possibly can,’ he said.
‘Michael is not a superhero, not physically. I like the fact that I might not be able to execute that stunt perfectly, because you’ll see it on camera and you’ll see that Michael is not necessarily a force to be reckoned with from the neck down.
‘He’s got certain skills but it’s very likely that he could die and that adds to the suspense.’
In real life, Miller is focused on mental battles after previously opening up about depression. His advice now is: ‘Go about the business of learning to be your own best friend. That has served me well in life.’
