The Story Behind William Franklyn Miller’s Early Modeling Career, Transition to Acting and Family

Even though he is still wallowing in his adolescence, child actor and model William Franklyn Miller is already enjoying huge fame that reverberates across the world, something many people much older than him in the entertainment business wish they could achieve.

The Londoner is now widely acclaimed as ‘the world’s most beautiful boy’ after an unofficial declaration on social media in 2016. Looking at his image, we totally see why. With more than 1.6 million followers on Instagram, William maintains operational bases in the UK, US, and Australia.

The Budding Years Of William Franklyn Miller

The infant prodigy was born on March 25, 2004, in London, England. When he was about nine years of age in 2013, his family relocated to Melbourne, Australia and he moved along with them. By his date of birth, William’s sun sign is Aries. So, if astrology is anything to go by, the child actor and model would be someone who needs a lot of attention, not out of narcissism but from honest self-assurance all because he is good at what he does. Looking at how far he has come in such a short time, it is safe to say he’s getting all that deserved attention for the right reasons as well.

By convention, William Franklyn Miller should be in school by now. But, no details are available regarding his education. It is, however, speculated that he is being homeschooled to enable him to pursue his career without ditching his education. That decision is obviously paying off considering his early venture into the modeling industry and subsequent transition to the performing arts.

His Modeling Career Introduced Him To The World

Reports have it that William Franklyn Miller has been active as a model and child actor since he was four years old in England. He then went ahead to build an impressive career in Australia via social media.

As a model, William has advertised for brands like Hackett, Harrods, Marks & Spencer, Country Road, Pavement Brands, Sudo, and Ratbag. He has also garnered credit on print, gracing the glossy pages of magazines like ‘La Petite Magazine,’ ‘L’Official Russia,’ ‘Italian Vogue’, and ‘Vogue Russia,’ as well as ‘Hooligans Magazine.

William was doing really great in his modeling career and his captivating physical features played a large role in that success story. At this time in his career life, he was getting all the attention in the world from the right people but not the viral community that is the internet. This all changed in 2016 when a Japanese schoolgirl uploaded his photograph on her Twitter account. The photo subsequently went viral and made him a social media sensation overnight. It was shared 95,000 times in Japan, Taiwan, as well as China, on platforms like Instagram and Twitter among others.

The young model was 12 years old when he became an overnight internet sensation. Going viral on the internet boosted his opportunities and while he saw a significant rise in online followers, his acting career also took a good turn.

William Franklyn Miller is Taking Hollywood By Storm

William Franklyn Miller made his acting debut in early 2016 in the short film, A Fish Out of Water, where he played the role of Zac. He then subsequently appeared in the Australian television drama, Jack Irish. He also made a guest appearance in one episode of the Australian soap opera, Neighbours, in 2017.

It was also in 2017 that the actor made his US television debut when he portrayed the younger version of Joseph Wilson in The CW superhero TV series, Arrow. The following year, he starred as Will in the short film, The Resurgence. In 2019, William played the character of Thomas in the short film, Watcher, before he took the role of Carl in another 2019 film titled Four Kids And It.

The actor appears to be building a career across some of the biggest industries in the world as his acting concerns are managed by Bernard Kira of BMK-ENT in the United States of America, Saskia Mulder of The Artists Partnership in London, England, and Charmaine Gilchrist of Gilchrist Management in Australia.
