We Empower Magazine got an exclusive interview with Miles.
Please tell us about the work that you do as a health enthusiast?
Miles: I’ve committed my life to be a walking example of health and wellness. Whether it be through mentoring or teaching, I promote living a healthy lifestyle and I demonstrate how living a healthy lifestyle translates to being successful.
How was the transition for you from pro sports star to star in the entertainment industry?
Miles: The transition from sports star to movie star has been very interesting, initially, I was on the fence about what I truly wanted out of life and what I wanted to do as a career. But as I continued on my journey, I kept praying that my steps be ordered and that I got a sign about what I should be doing. My first speaking line on television was in Chicago Fire and the name of the episode was “God Has Spoken”. I’ve been full-time acting ever since.
What have been some memorable moments in your career so far?
Miles: Each time I’ve ever walked on a set has been a memorable moment for me. Whether it be filming “The Quad” at my college Morehouse, or being locked in a car with Issa Rae and Yvonne Orji for 9 hours. Filming At the Kardashian house for a Quibi show or shooting my first movie “Dutch” with Lance Gross. There have been soooo many memorable moments, and soooo many more to come.
When you first got into the entertainment industry, what impact did you intend to make?
Miles: Honestly from early experiences with more established actors, I set out to not be like them. Unapproachable, Pompous, Egotistical; I arrived not to be like some of the actors I met when I first started out, I didn’t like the energy they were giving off. So I vowed to stay true to who I am as a person and treat all people on set, from the producers to the extras with love and respect.
What are you currently working on?
Miles: Currently, I just wrapped season 2 of Southside, streaming on HBO max. My movie Dutch is streaming on BET and Amazon Prime. I’m pitching movies and auditioning. I also just received the green light on this new children’s project that I’m so excited about called “It’s A Possible Day”
Any health tips for our readers as we approach the Summer season?
Miles: Being healthy is a lifestyle, commit to that lifestyle and take it one day at a time, one meal at a time one gym session at a time.
