Meet Prison Break’s Star’s Mother: Joy Marie Palm-Miller

Joy Marie Palm-Miller is the mother of Wentworth Miller, an American actor. Wentworth came into the spotlight when they starred in the television show Prison Break as Michael Scofield. Joy Marie was a special education teacher when her firstborn, Wentworth, was born. She probably continued with the career until she retired.

Joy Marie Palm-Miller married Wentworth Earl Miller II, a lawyer, and a teacher, and they had three children, Wentworth Miller, Leigh Miller, and Gillian Miller. Only Wentworth Miller, alias Michael Scofield is famous; his other siblings are very private and have kept information about themselves from the public.

Education, Net Worth.

Joy Marie is a special education teacher, and it is okay to assume she went through the proper education channels to become a teacher. She must have gone to school and later joined college though she has not made that information public. Joy ensured that her children got the best education they could, meaning that she values education.

The salary Joy Marie earned as a teacher is unknown, but given that her husband, too, worked as a lawyer and teacher, their combined earnings were enough to support their financial needs as a family. Her net worth is unknown, but her son, who has earned a living out of acting, has a net worth of 4 million US dollars.

Her Son

Wentworth Miller started his acting career in 1995 when he relocated to Los Angeles. He faced many challenges and failures while trying to find his way in the acting industry. Despite Joy Marie’s son’s many difficulties, he did not give up and made his first television appearance in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

In 2002, Miller had a starring role as David Scott in Dinotopia. After that, before landing his first leading role, he appeared in several films and television shows, such as Joan of Arcadia, The Human Stain, and Underworld. In 2005, he took the lead role of Michael Scofield in the series Prison Break. In the drama series, Joy’s son played the role of a structural engineer, trying to help his brother escape prison.

For Miller’s outstanding performance in Prison Break, he was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Drama Series. Joy Marie’s son starred for four seasons up to 2009 and, in 2017, reprised his role for a fifth season. Additionally, Miller made a guest appearance in season 11 of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

In his personal life, despite denying it, first Joy’s son came out saying that he is gay and he had tried to kill himself several times before coming out as gay.

Social Media

Joy Marie Palm-Miller does not fancy social media, just like her son. No official accounts on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter belong to her. Though there is no official Instagram account for her son, there is an account on Instagram with over 200k followers, and all its posts are pictures of Wentworth Miller. It is unclear if it’s his account; if it is, it is yet to be verified.
