Ten year old from Borehamwood to appear in sitcom You, Me and Them
A child star is hoping to inspire other young people to have the confidence to live their dreams.
Miller Henderson, ten, who lives in Mason Close, Borehamwood, has just finished filming a sitcom, You Me and Them, which will be aired next week on television channel GOLD.
The former pupil at Monksmead School stars alongside actors including Anthony Head and Eve Myles, who play a couple madly in love despite a 20-year age gap.
Miller, who now attends Barbara Speake Stage School in East Acton, has been dancing and acting since the age of three.
He said: “I had an amazing time appearing in this sitcom. I play Charlie Mason, who is the son of Eve Myles’s character, and who is accident prone and a bit of a klutz.
“It was wonderful to have the chance to perform with such experienced actors and learn from them.”
You, Me and Them was partly filmed at Elstree Studios as well as other sites across north London.
Miller added: “Filming at Elstree Studios was a dream come true.
“I’d always wanted to film there in a place where so many famous and important films were made, it was brilliant to have that chance.”
Miller has appeared in short films and stage shows, but the six-part series is his first major production.
He credits Monksmead School and his parents for spotting his talent and helping him develop his confidence.
Miller added: “I visited my former school recently and they all said I was becoming a superstar.
“I’d like to tell other people my age to keep trying, don’t give up and work hard, one day it’ll be your chance to shine. It’s taken me seven years to get where I am.”
Miller’s mother Lisa Henderson, 53, is very “pleased and proud” at her son’s success.
She said: “He’s so dedicated, he works really hard at acting and dancing, as well as being top of his class academically.
“He’s a polite, modest boy. I’ve done my best to keep him grounded, the last thing I want him to be is spoilt like some other child actors.”
“He was an IVF baby and my husband and I tried for eight years to have him. It’s the icing on the cake that he’s so talented.”
The childminder said Miller’s face was already appearing on posters for the sitcom on trains and buses and she wanted people to know he was from Borehamwood.
She said: “There’s lots of negative publicity about young people in Borehamwood.
“I want people to know we have our success stories too and hopefully Miller will inspire other young people in Borehamwood to follow their dreams.”
