Early on, the actor developed a passion for singing and even founded his own band, "Sons of an Illustrious Father". Ezra's debut on the big screen came in 2008 with Antonio Campos' film Afterschool. In this role, he portrayed a neurotic teenager deeply involved in the creation of a tribute video for two classmates who died from an overdose, a character fascinated with adult films.
Subsequently, Ezra Miller made a notable appearance in the TV series Californication, playing the rebellious boyfriend of Hank Moody's (David Duchovny) daughter. He also appeared in series like Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Royal Pains in 2009. In 2010, he portrayed a gay teenager in Every Day alongside Helen Hunt and Liev Schreiber, and also featured as Andy Garcia's son in City Island, a family drama set against the backdrop of a prison.
However, it was in 2011 that Ezra Miller truly distinguished himself with his role as Kevin in Lynne Ramsay's powerful film We Need to Talk About Kevin. Adapted from Lionel Shriver's novel, this film garnered critical acclaim and was screened in competition at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. Miller's portrayal of the troubled relationship between a mother and her son opposite Tilda Swinton earned him widespread praise.
In the same year, Miller showcased his versatility by starring in the comedy-drama Another Happy Day as Elliot, a young addict, alongside Ellen Burstyn, Thomas Haden Church, and Demi Moore. The following year, he portrayed Patrick in Stephen Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower, a role that showcased his ability to delve into complex characters beyond his earlier dark and brooding roles.
This evolution continued with appearances in Madame Bovary, The Stanford Prison Experiment, and Trainwreck, where he starred alongside Amy Schumer. Transitioning further into mainstream cinema, Ezra Miller joined the Fantastic Beasts franchise in 2016 as Credence Barebone, and also took on the role of Barry Allen / The Flash in various DC Comics adaptations including Suicide Squad, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League, and The Flash solo film.
