Death in Paradise has it all: beautiful scenery, a captivating storyline, and a fantastic cast.
Before Ben Miller turned to acting, you’d be surprised to learn that he studied for a doctorate in quantum physics at Cambridge University, where he met fellow actor and presenter Alexander Armstrong.
In an interview with Physics World, he once said about it “After I graduated I found it fascinating. Being able to spend three years learning physics was an absolute joy for me.”
But in the end, he gave up his degree to focus all his attention on his passion which was rather to pursue a career in the theater.
It was not easy to navigate for Ben Miller as he was trying to do so as an actor performing in underground pubs and unknown comedy clubs with his friend Alexander.
With hard work and luck, they found success when they finally landed an order for an Armstrong and Miller TV series to air on Paramount Comedy Channel and Channel 4 and that was just the start.
The actor’s reported net present worth is Â£ 3.6million.
Ben Miller has starred in a number of movies and TV series since and his latest drama titled “Professor T.” On An Eccentric Criminologist will air on ITV at 9 p.m. on Sunday, July 18.
