SEMAJ MILLER

ACTOR, DIRECTOR, ARTIST

WELCOME

Thank you so much for visiting my new site! One of the privileges of being an actor, aside from exploring the world through the eyes of another, is that I get to meet and learn from some of the most incredible and talented people in the world. This site is a glimpse, a sneak peek if you will into my journey,  I hope you'll come along. Also, check out some of my latest posts and updates below and let me know what you think.

SEMAJ'S BIOGRAPHY

Self-described as a country boy by way of Chicago, Semaj Miller grew up on the Windy City’s storied South-side.  As a kid he wanted to be a lawyer until his father snuck him into a showing of “What’s Love Got to Do With It” thus began a life-long love affair with all things Tina and ACTING. This led to his star turn as “Teen Angel” in a high school production of Grease where he learned the literal value of falling on your face before a live audience. Since then he’s been BLESSED to travel far beyond his own imagination to work with and meet artists from across the globe. A lifetime removed from the infamous face plant, Semaj managed to pick up a couple degrees along the way- a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting from Syracuse University and an Master of Fine Arts in Acting from the Professional Acting Training Program at the University of Washington, School of Drama. Success aside, both on and off stage he's still that same kid from the South-side of Chicago whose hope remains the same; that hearts can be healed through the power of story telling.

THE ELABORATE ENTRANCE OF CHAD DEITY
