Hollywood actor, Wentworth Miller, popularly known for his role in ‘Prison Break’, has been diagnosed with autism.
The actor made this known in a post via his Instagram account on Wednesday.
According to him, the news came as a shock but not a surprise.
”Like everyone, life in quarantine took things from me but in the quiet/isolation, I found unexpected gifts.
”This fall marks 1 year since I received my informal autism diagnosis. Preceded by a self-diagnosis which was followed by a formal diagnosis.
”I don’t know enough about autism. Right now my work looks like it is evolving my understanding. Re-examining 5 decades of lived experience through a new lens.
”Meanwhile, I don’t want to run the risk of suddenly being a loud, ill-informed voice in the room. The autistic community has historically been talked over.
”If anyone’s interested in delving deeper into autism I’ll point you toward the numerous individuals sharing thoughtful + inspiring content on Instagram, TikTok… Unpacking terminology. Adding nuance. Fighting stigma.
”That’s the extent of what I’m inclined to share atm.
”I also want to say to the many people who consciously or unconsciously gave me that extra bit of grace and space over the years, allowed me to move thru the world in a way that made sense to me whether or not it made sense to them, I just want to say thank you,” he wrote.
