Jonny Lee Miller Net Worth $10 Million

Jonny Lee Miller is the son of Alan Miller and Anna Lee, both actors who encouraged Jonny to start acting from an early age. Miller grew up in Southwest London and went to the Tiffin School, where he participated in several school plays before leaving for the National Youth Music Theatre. However, Jonny left the school to pursue his career at the age of 16.

Miller’s first credited appearance came in the TV series “Jemima Shore Investigates” (1983), and soon after in “Storyboard” (1983) and “Mansfield Park” (1983). Jonny failed to land a senior role until 1990 when he appeared in one episode of “Keeping Up Appearances”. In the early ‘90s, Miller played in numerous series including “Goodbye Cruel World” (1992) and “EastEnders” (1993) before landed a minor role in the TV movie “Olly’s Prison” (1993), but his net worth was established.

Miller’s first bigger project came in 1995 when he starred in Iain Softley’s movie “Hackers” (1995) with Angelina Jolie, which helped his career along, and from then on Miller had many notable parts. Perhaps the most recognisable was his portrayal of “Sick Boy” in Danny Boyle’s masterpiece “Trainspotting” (1996) starring Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, and Robert Carlyle. The movie received an Oscar nomination and gained enormous popularity on an international level, and also increased Miller’s net worth.

After that role, Jonny didn’t have problems in finding work, as the cult status of “Trainspotting” guaranteed him various parts to the end of the ‘90s. Some of them were in the western mini-series “Dead Man’s Walk” (1996), “Afterglow” (1997) with Nick Nolte, Julie Christie, and Lara Flynn Boyle, and “Behind the Lines” (1997) starring Jonathan Pryce. He teamed up again with Scottish actor Robert Carlyle in the Jake Scott’s movie “Plunkett & Macleane” (1999) and starred in “Mansfield Park” (1999), increasing further his net worth.

Miller continued with parts in “Love, Honor and Obey” (2000) with Jude Law, Sadie Frost, and Ray Winstone, and starred in Gavin Millar’s “Complicity” (2000) before he appeared in “Dracula 2000” (2000) starring Gerard Butler. Jonny had a lead role in action film “Escapist” (2002) and then portrayed Lord Byron in Julian Farino’s biography drama “Byron” (2003). In the mid-2000’s, Miller worked in “Mindhunters” (2004) starring Val Kilmer, LL Cool J, and Christian Slater and in Woody Allen’s romantic comedy “Melinda and Melinda” (2004) with Will Ferrell, Vinessa Shaw, and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

After such movies as “Æon Flux” (2005) with Charlize Theron and Frances McDormand and “The Flying Scotsman” (2006), Jonny primarily played in popular TV series. Some of them were “Smith” (2006-2007), “Eli Stone” (2008-2009), “Emma” (2009), and “Dexter” (2010), while he also had a supporting role in the Golden Globe nominated drama “Endgame” (2009) with William Hurt and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

In 2011, Miller played both Victor Frankenstein and The Creature in Danny Boyle’s “National Theatre Live: Frankenstein” along with Benedict Cumberbatch. He also appeared in Tim Burton’s “Dark Shadows” (2012) starring Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Eva Green, and in Neil Jordan’s “Byzantium” (2012) before he landed the leading role in the CBS series “Elementary” which is still running. Miller will play “Sick Boy” again in the “Trainspotting” sequel in 2017.

Regarding his personal life, Jonny Lee Miller was married to Angelina Jolie from 1996 to 1999 and later dated the actress and model Michele Hicks; the pair married in 2008 and has one son, Buster Timothy Miller. The interesting fact is that both of his wives share the same birthday – June 4. He is a big Chelsea FC fan and is a godfather tof Jude Law’s eldest son Rafferty.
