Wentworth Miller Reveals he has Autism

Wentworth Miller, best known for his roll on Prison Break, is sharing his diagnosis of Autism with the world.

The actor, now 49, made the announcement on Instagram, telling fans he was diagnosed with autism as an adult last year, telling his followers, “This isn’t something I’d change … immediately being autistic is central to who I am. To everything I’ve achieved/articulated.”

Along with a photo of a blank white square, Miller wrote, “This fall marks 1 year since I received my informal autism diagnosis. Preceded by a self-diagnosis. Followed by a formal diagnosis. It was a long, flawed process in need of updating. IMO. I’m a middle-aged man. Not a 5-year-old.”

Miller noted that “access to a diagnosis is a privilege many do not enjoy,” admitting that his diagnosis was “a shock,” but “not a surprise.”
