Saiya Miller Is Actor Ezra Miller’s Older Sister
Saiya Miller joined the entertainment industry as an author, artist, and activist. Here's a glimpse into her the life and career of Ezra Miller's sister.
Saiya Miller is the elder sister of young Hollywood star Ezra Miller, known for his portrayals of "The Flash" in the DC cinematic universe and "Credence" of the "Fantastic Beasts" film franchise.
Ezra has exhibited creativity in his unique fashion choices, and Saiya is no exception as a webtoon creator herself. She is an educator-activist who has pursued a career in music and art after graduating from The New School's Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts.
SAIYA MILLER WAS BORN TO A CREATIVE FAMILY
Saiya was born to a German-Dutch mother, Marta, and an Ashkenazi Jewish father, Robert S. Miller. Born and raised in Wyckoff, New Jersey, Saiya lives a private life in Brooklyn and Vermont.
She finished her education at The New School's Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts and later pursued a career in teaching, specializing in art and music.
Unlike most institutions, New School pursues an unconventional way of learning that provides significant freedom for the artist-learner. Admitted students can take undergraduate and graduate courses under the University's various colleges.
Growing up as creatives was no surprise for the Miller siblings, who had exceptional parents in the industry. Marta was a modern dancer, while Robert was a leader in a Publishing company and a Senior V.P. for Hyperion Books.
The Miller children remember their mother as one who inspired playfulness and curiosity. As shared in one of Ezra's interviews, their family hikes would involve their mother selecting a "lead leader," one who spearheads the sightseeing of unique and unusual things during the hike.
SAIYA MILLER PUBLISHED A BOOK
Saiya was a successful educator-activist who utilized art to communicate with the world. One of her notable projects includes a series of comics tackling sexual concepts, entitled "Not Your Mother's Meatloaf: A Sex Education Comic Book."
The creation of the comic book allowed fellow artists to contribute to the topic. Entries were made in black ink, exhibiting issues related to "firsts," "bodies," "health," "endings," and the like.
Working on the masterpiece with fellow Eugene Lang graduate editor Liza Bley, the sex education comic book welcomes the contribution of more than 50 artists. She said, highlighting the opportunity given to express to many up-and-coming artists:
"We felt that it was a very accessible form. A lot of the artists included in the book had maybe never drawn a comic before."
The comic received wide attention from the public. Tomasino Agency, a literary firm that features books that "strengthen, inspire, and entertain," featured Saiya and Bley's work.
Submissions for the comic went on for four years, from 2008 through 2012, allowing the compilation of six zones. The same has been made accessible offline and online, allowing for wide dispersion.
The success of the comics was expected as they creatively tackled real issues that merited the public's attention.
With the growth of the comic series, Bley and Miller successfully compiled the collection into a book. After several pitches, Soft Skull press grabbed the opportunity to publish the work in 2012.
Saiya was born into Jewish ethnicity having an Ashkenazi Jewish father and a German-Dutch mother. She is the elder sister of Warner Bros. star Ezra Miller.
Ezra is an exceptional talent, performing at the Metropolitan Opera at a young age. Miller eventually appeared in television series such as "Californication," "Law & Order," and "Royal Plains."
In his rise to fame, Ezra Miller had the opportunity to play a homicidal character in the 2011 drama-thriller film "We Need to Talk About Kevin." Ezra has also taken on notable roles in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" and "The Flash."
Nevertheless, the younger Miller has been under the spotlight due to his multiple scandals. In a recent police investigation, the actor was charged with felony burglary of an unoccupied home.
Additional reports mention Ezra to be housing a mother and three children in a home supposedly used as a cannabis farm. In addition, the actor is also at the center of multiple allegations of women abuse.
