New Interview with Wentworth Miller

Wentworth Miller

Before you ask, NO, I didn’t interview Wentworth Miller.  Do you really think I would be coherent enough to write this if I did?!  The lucky folks over at The Daily Mail, however, lived to tell about the experience. 

Here’s a few excerpts of the great interview.  Make sure you click over to The Daily Mail to read the rest.

What is it about Prison Break which has made it such a huge hit?

It’s a little bit of something for everyone – action, adventure and romance. It’s a story about a family and how far one man is willing to go to save a loved one. Plus I think the idea of prison is universally compelling. I don’t think anyone would want to be in my character’s shoes but they’d certainly like to go along for the ride.
Does it help that the show is shot inside a real prison?

Joliet State Pen was a functioning prison for over 150 years until 2002. It’s the most important character on the show. It lends the show an integrity that we couldn’t replicate on a sound stage. It helps to remind you of the reality of prison life.

How much research did you do into prison life before filming began?

There’s only so much you can do. It’s like the difference between researching a car accident and being in a car accident. I’ll never know what it’s like to really be an inmate. Working at a facility like Joliet does ground you. We do use the facility and all it has to offer. They planned my character’s escape via the real lay-out of the prison.

Have you met any former inmates?

We have many former inmates on set, playing extras. They’ve all come back which struck me as odd at first until I realised there was a sort of closure going on. People were returning to a place that had caused them a great deal of pain and suffering to achieve something positive by putting together a TV show.
