A music-lover from her early childhood, she was actively involved in her local church gospel choir, where she wowed fellow parishioners with her astonishing range.

She was later a musical theater major at Carnegie Mellon; she credits this time as being hugely influential on her future performances and her ability to realize her dreams.

Professional Career

Miller began auditioning for movies and theater before she had finished her major at Carnegie Mellon.

She was in the last three performers considered for the role of Effie White in the 2006 movie Dreamgirls, and she starred in 30 episodes of the daytime soap “All My Children.”

Miller broadened her professional horizons in 2008 by moving in a more theatrical direction.

During the summer of 2008, she was a cast member of the musical “Hair,” and performed in New York City’s Central Park.

She also had a role in the Manhattan Theater Club’s musical, “Romantic Poetry,” in the fall of the same year.

Breakthrough and Sister Act

After six months of acting as the understudy for the role of Deloris Van Cartier in the initial American run of the musical “Sister Act,” Miller earned the part for herself.

After a year-long international search, Miller booked the role of Van Cartier for the London production of the musical.

Though the praise for the show itself was mixed, Miller was near-unanimously praised for her performance in the title role.

Though she had big shoes to fill in the form of Whoopi Goldberg – who electrified audiences with her performance in the 1992 movie of the same name – Miller proved more than equal to the task.

Lauded for her “powerhouse vocals” that one critic described as somewhere between “Gloria Gaynor” and “Whitney Houston,” Patina Miller so excelled in the role that she remained until the conclusion of its London run.

Miller reprised the role on Broadway in 2011.

During that time, she continued to establish herself as a player on the NYC theater scene; she won 5 awards for her portrayal of Deloris Van Cartier, including the prestigious “Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical.”

My time on Broadway opened up a lot of doors for me,” Miller said in April 2023. “I’ve been able to really go for dreams that I did not even think were possible and to tell even bigger stories.”

Further TV and Movie Appearances

Though much better known for her theatrical roles, Miller appeared in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part One” and CBS’ “Madam Secretary” as press secretary Daisy Grant.
