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.

1[on his friend Benedict Cumberbatch] He sent me some messages, when he'd first seen the show, and it was really, really nice. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have sent me a text message saying, "You suck!" He's been very supportive, the whole way.
2[on playing Sherlock Holmes in Elementary (2012)] For me, there are two different things that make Sherlock Sherlock. One is, you know, within the books: Obviously, he's a genius with an attention to detail, his ravenous hunger for all aspects of knowledge that might feed into his work. But the major thing that makes him Sherlock is his relationship with Watson -- their friendship. For me, that, I guess, is the biggest side, the more interesting side than the genius.
3[on being voted 1999's coolest couple with Natalie Appleton, by Elle magazine] I thought, "This is just too funny." Then they read my name out and it was highly embarrassing.
4[About his relationship with Angelina Jolie] For a while, it was a very intense relationship, very passionate, and you can never regret being involved in something like that. It was sad that it ended, but I wouldn't change a thing about it. Well, except maybe my haircut.
5I don't think any actor has the luxury of knowing exactly what scripts are going to turn out well and what ones aren't. It would be wonderful to have that particular skill, and maybe people like Tom Cruise have it more than most, but you go into each project hoping that a good, if not great, film will come out the other end. All you can do is look out for good scripts, and interesting people to work with.
6If you're serious about what you're doing, you've got to keep your head and follow your instinct. Maybe you won't reach the same dizzy heights as others, but you will get something back. I'd go anywhere to work, so long as it's worth it.
7New York and LA are both great places to visit, but I wouldn't want to live in either of them now. I find New York extremely claustrophobic and dirty. LA is quite a nice place. But there's no hustle and bustle, no street life. Everyone's going from A to B in a car. Why did I leave [America]? My relationship [with Angelina Jolie] was going bad and I missed England, simple things like smells and major things like the British sense of humor.
1Miller is a big N.Y. Rangers fan and was thrilled when the Stanley Cup trophy appeared on Elementary.
2Awarded the Evening Standard Theatre Award and the Olivier Award for Best Actor.
3He runs a half-marathon twice per week. Completed the 2008 London Marathon at 3:01:40, averaging under seven minutes per mile. He's also completed an ultra marathon, running 50 miles through Bear Mountain, New York for the charity Jonah's Just Begun, it raises funds for Sanfilippo Syndrome.
4Became a United States citizen in 2014.
5Has played Sherlock Holmes (in Elementary (2012)) and Woodrow F. Call (in Dead Man's Walk (1996)). The two characters' working partners, John Watson and Augustus McCrae, had both been played by Robert Duvall (in Lonesome Dove (1989) and The Seven-Per-Cent Solution (1976).
6He worked with Christopher Lee in Dark Shadows (2012), while his grandfather, Bernard Lee, worked with him in Pursuit of the Graf Spee (1956), Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (1965), and The Man with the Golden Gun (1974).

10His character in Trainspotting (1996) is obsessed with James Bond films, especially those with Sean Connery. In real life, his grandfather, Bernard Lee, played M, Bond's superior, in many of the films, including all of Connery's films.
11He has played Scottish characters three times: in Trainspotting (1996), Complicity (2000), and The Flying Scotsman (2006). He did it so convincingly that many viewers and critics believed that he is from Scotland. Due to this frequency, Craig Ferguson, who is really Scottish, declared Miller an Honorary Scotsman.
12He was the only non-Scottish cast member of Trainspotting (1996).
13Good friends with Benedict Cumberbatch, with whom he shared the central roles of Frankenstein and his creature in Danny Boyle's stage production of "Frankenstein" (2011). Coincidentally, Miller was cast as Sherlock Holmes in Elementary (2012) and Cumberbatch has been playing the legendary detective in Sherlock (2010) since July 2010.
14He appeared in two different adaptations of Jane Austen's 1814 novel "Mansfield Park": Mansfield Park (1983) and Mansfield Park (1999). He played Charles Price in the former and Edmund Bertram in the latter. He played another Austen character, Mr. Knightley, in Emma (2009).
15Godfather of Jude Law's eldest son, Rafferty Law, born on October 6, 1996.
16Former son-in-law of Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand.
