Wentworth Miller revealed on Instagram yesterday (Tuesday, July 27) that he has been diagnosed with autism.
Wentworth Miller is best-known for his roles on 'Prison Break' and 'Legends of Tomorrow'.
The actor shared a white square image on Instagram alongside his post talking about his diagnosis.
He wrote about discovering he learned he had autism a year ago writing, "it was a long, flawed process in need of updating."
He added: "I recognize access to a diagnosis is a privilege many do not enjoy."
Miller said he was shocked by the news, but not surprised.
He continued: "I don't want to run the risk of suddenly being a loud, ill-informed voice in the room. The #autistic community (this I do know) has historically been talked over. Spoken for. I don't wish to do additional harm. Only to raise my hand, say, "I am here. Have been (w/o realizing it)."
"If anyone's interested in delving deeper into #autism + #neurodiversity, I'll point you toward the numerous individuals sharing thoughtful + inspiring content on Instagram, TikTok… Unpacking terminology. Adding nuance. Fighting stigma.
"These creators (some quite young) speak to the relevant issues more knowledgeably/fluently than I can. (They've been schooling me as well.)
"That's the extent of what I'm inclined to share atm."
The actor concluded by thanking those who have supported him over the years.
He also wrote: "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."
