Who Is His Father?
Born Jonathan Lee Miller in November 1972, Jonny is a British actor. He appears in film, television, and theatre.
Jonny achieved early success for his portrayal of Simon Sick Boy Williamson in the dark-comedy drama Trainspotting in 1996. He also appeared as Dade Murphy in Hackers in 1995.
In the 1990s, Jonny also appeared in movies like Afterglow and Mansfield Park.
Born in Kingston-upon-Thames, he was raised in southwest London. Jonny was inspired by his parents to go into acting as both of them were theatre actors. His father was actor Bernard Lee, who played M in the first 11 James Bond movies.
The British actor made his television debut as an uncredited appearance in the BBC series Doctor Who at only 9 years of age. The episode was titled Kinda, and the following year he appeared in Jemima Shore.
For his appearance as Jordan Chase in the fifth season of the television series Dexter, he received a nomination for Screen Actors Guild Award. Fun fact: Lee Miller was considered for the role of Rick Grimes in the Walking Dead series, but Andrew Lincoln got the role.
Then, in 2011, he auditioned for the role of Sherlock Holmes in the CBS television adaptation based on the works of Arthur Conan Doyle. Initially, he turned down the role, thinking it would be too similar to the BBC version, Sherlock.
Yet, after reading the script, he accepted the part and became the main cast member of Elementary alongside Lucy Liu. The role earned him the second Satellite Award nomination for Best Actor.
His most famous movie role is Sick Boy in Trainspotting. Ewan McGregor suggested Lee Miller for the role. His accent was so convincing, some people thought he was Scottish.
Speaking of that role, Jonny said, “I had to do a lot of work. I read and re-read the book and I pretended to be Scottish all the time. I was in Glasgow, hanging around with Scots, picking up bits and pieces on the street and in bars”.
Fun fact: shortly after meeting Angelina Jolie on the set of Hackers in 1995, the two got married. They were together for 18 months and didn’t have any children together. Yet, they remained close friends.
Jonny became an American citizen in November 2014.
In 2021, he was cast as former British Prime Minister, John Major in the fifth season of The Crown.
So, who is Buster Timothy Miller? Well, he is a celebrity kid famous for being the son of English actor Jonny Lee Miller and his ex-wife, Michele Hicks.
He is also the grandson of Alan Miller and Ann Lee. Timothy has no siblings, and we know nothing about his early life and educational background.
We cannot confirm his exact birth date. According to most sources, he was born in December 2008. One reason for that is Jonny and his ex-wife want to keep their son away from the media spotlight.
As of January, he is 14 years of age and just entering his teenage years. Buster keeps a low profile and his only claim to fame is being a celebrity child.
Relationship With His Mother
Jonny was married before he met Michele Hicks. In fact, she was his second wife. Angelina Jolie was his first wife. The two met on the set of Hackers in 1995 and got married in March 1996. But that marriage lasted for only 18 months.
In 2006, Jonny began dating actress and model Michele Hicks. They got married in July 2008 in Malibu, California. They have only one son together, Buster Miller.
Jonny and Michele divorced in 2018. Michele is an American actress and former fashion model. She is the mother of Buster, and the two share an incredible bond. You can often see Buster Miller and his mother together at events.
For example, in 2017, they attended the book signing of The World of Anna Sui in New York City. Then, in September 2017, Michele, Jonny, and their son attended Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation’s Kids 4 Kid. The family festival was held at Chelsea Piers Field House in New York City.
Even when Timothy was younger, his mother took him to events. For example, in May 2014, when he was only five years old, she took him to the seventh annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Liberty State.
As an actress, his mother appeared in movies like Guns for Hire, Twin Falls Idaho, 2 Bedroom 1 Bath, and The Wicked Within. Her most famous TV shows include The Shield, Mr. Robot, and Heist.
Is He On Social Media?
Buster Timothy Miller is now in his teenage years. Most teenagers live on social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. But not Timothy. One reason for that might be that he is already a celebrity child, and doesn’t need any more fame and media presence.
Instead, he appears on the social media accounts of his parents. For example, his father has more than 230k followers on Instagram. His mother, on the other hand, keeps a lower profile. She has only around 6,600 followers on social media.
Buster Timothy is just a teenager. And while some teenagers began working and earning money in their early years, he doesn’t have to do that. Why? Well, when you have two celebrity parents, life is easier.
His father, British actor Jonny Lee Miller has a net worth of $14 million. He earned his money thanks to his long and successful acting career. His mother Michele has a net worth of $1 million.
In 2009, Jonny and his wife purchased a property in Los Angeles located in the celebrity-laden Hollywood Hills neighborhood. It features over 2,800 square feet of living space of Spanish-influenced architecture.
In 2015, they also splurged on a condo in New York City, paying more than $2 million for an apartment located in the East Village neighborhood.
