Wentworth Miller, best known for his starring role as Michael Scofield in Prison Break, has opened up on Instagram about his autism diagnosis.

Marking 1 year since he found out, the 49-year-old actor posted a heart-felt caption accompanying a plain white photo.

“This fall marks 1 year since I received my informal autism diagnosis. Preceded by a self-diagnosis. Followed by a formal diagnosis.”

“Let’s just say it was a shock. But not a surprise.”

“I don’t know enough about autism. (There’s a lot to know.) Right now my work looks like evolving my understanding. Re-examining 5 decades of lived experience thru a new lens.”

“That will take time.”

“Oh – this isn’t something I’d change. No. I get – got – immediately being autistic is central to who I am. To everything I’ve achieved/articulated.”


“Oh – I also want to say to the many (many) people who consciously or unconsciously gave me that extra bit of grace + space over the years, allowed me to move thru the world in a way that made sense to me whether or not it made sense to them… thank you.”

“And to those who made a different choice… well. People will reveal themselves.”

“Another gift.”
