Acting career

Miller rose to fame when he was chosen out of 700 applicants for the titular role in Oliver Twist, the BBC One Christmas adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic of the same name, broadcast in December 2007.[2] Only 11 at the time he was then scouted by Tottenham Hotspur.[2]

Miller starred as the lead character Sean in the 2009 British children's miniseries Runaway, broadcast on BBC One, which was part of the CBBC season about homelessness.[3][4]


Football career

Having previously played youth football for Leyton Orient, Miller featured regularly for Tottenham's Under-16 team over the course of the 2012–13 season before joining Tottenham full-time in the summer of 2013.[1]

On 21 September 2013, Miller was selected for an England under-18 squad for two matches against Hungary on 11 and 14 October 2013.[5]

On 25 August 2016, Miller joined Burton Albion on loan.[6] His first goal for the club came on 10 September of the same year, a late equaliser against Wolverhampton Wanderers.[7]
