Wentworth Miller lascia Prison Break: “Basta personaggi etero”

Attraverso un messaggio su Instagram, Wentworth Miller ha dato per sempre l’addio a Prison Break, la serie TV che lo ha visto protagonista per cinque stagioni. La sua decisione, come si capisce leggendo il testo, ha motivazioni molto più personali e profonde del previsto.

L’attore ha affermato: “Sono fuori da Prison Break. Ufficialmente. Semplicemente non voglio più interpretare personaggi etero”.

Cosi ha affermato Miller, disattivando la possibilità di commentare sotto il post, che nel 2013 ha dichiarato pubblicamente di essere omosessuale. Le loro storie sono state già raccontate. Perciò, niente più Michael. Se eravate fan della serie e speravate in altre stagioni… capisco che questa cosa potrebbe deludervi. Mi dispiace.”

“This is my favorite IG account,” someone wrote in response to a recent post. Thank you. I want you to know I saw that. I see the positive comments and DMs (a lot of them anyway). Affectionate. Supportive. Appreciated (by me). Obviously there are comments and DMs I appreciate less. Who are these people? On my page? What backwards-ass, Stone Age values country did they crawl out of? The U.S.? I won’t be disappearing (too many cool things to repost). The ability to comment likely will. I’m not concerned for myself. I can’t be “bullied” in this space. I have too much power. “Delete. Block. Deactivate.” Etc. But I take seriously the possibility of queer kids visiting here, recently out of the closet or exploring the idea… I don’t want them exposed to bullshit. On a related note… I’m out. Of PB. Officially. Not bec of static on social media (although that has centered the issue). I just don’t want to play straight characters. Their stories have been told (and told). So. No more Michael. If you were a fan of the show, hoping for additional seasons… I understand this is disappointing. I’m sorry. If you’re hot and bothered bec you fell in love with a fictional straight man played by a real gay one… That’s your work. – W.M. 🏳️‍🌈
