Wentworth Miller’s Co-Stars Tweet Their Support

The Prison Break star came out as gay earlier today…

Wentworth Miller’s Prison Break co-stars have taken to Twitter today to praise the actor’s decision to come out as gay.

The 41-year old actor revealed the news in a letter addressed to the director of the St. Petersburg International Film Festival, where he declined to appear at the event due to Russia’s anti-homosexuality laws.

Several of Miller’s Prison Break co-stars have since posted messages of support for the actor on their social media accounts.

Amaury Nolasco, who played Fernando Sucre in the Fox drama series, tweeted: "I applaud my boy, Wentworth Miller's courageousness. I'm proud of you brother, for standing up for what you believe in. Enough is enough."



Danay Garcia, who starred as Sofia Lugo in the third and fourth series of the hit show, wrote: "Challenges are presented to us as affirmations of our strength. I support you #Wentworth Miller. Incredible human being."



And Rockmond Dunbar, who played C-Note, also showed his support for his friend and former castmate, writing: “Congrats Went!!! Live free brutha! Proud of you!”



Wentworth Miller starred as Michael Scofield in Prison Break from 2005 to 2009 and recently made his screenwriting debut with the 2013 horror flick, Stoker.
