Wentworth Miller & The Bard of Avon!

A bit of humorous trivia about Went and The Bard.

What do Wentworth Miller and William Shakespeare have in common?

Firstly their first names start with a big “W”.

Secondly, both men were born in England.  Wentworth was born in Chipping Norton, UK on 2 June 1972 and William was born in Stratford-upon-Avon, UK.  Unfortunately William’s birth date is not known, but we know that he was baptised on the 26 April 1564. 

Thirdly, they’re both well-known writers in their own right.  One writes screenplays for Motion Pictures and the other was a playwright for Theatres and was also a poet.  I bet my bottom dollar that Went has a couple of his own poems hidden away somewhere just waiting to be discovered and published.

Both men have pseudonyms.  Wentworth Miller is often called “Michael Scofield” by mistake or “Went” for short and has written under the pseudonym “Ted Foulke” whilst William Shakespeare was called the “The Bard of Avon” or “The Bard” for short.

Before becoming writers, they were both actors.  Went  has acted on stage, in TV and in Motion Pictures whilst The Bard acted on the stage and in open air theatrical arenas and most of his plays have been made into Motion Pictures.

Wentworth attended “Princeton University” in New Jersey, USA and William attended “Kings New School in Stratford, UK.  

“The Princeton University” Chapel was the second largest university chapel in the world, after “Kings College” Chapel, Cambridge.  Notice the correlation between Kings and Princes!

Check out the link below about Princeton University and you’ll see strong connections to the Tudor and Gothic architecture that was prevalent in the Elizabethan Era/The Shakespearean Era.

Both men enjoy/d property purchases and investments.

Wentworth writes screenplays for others to act in (but hopefully that will change) and William acted in his own plays.

Lastly, Wentworth and William both appeared in Mad Magazine.

… And just when you thought I was through with Went and “The Bard’s” commonalities, here’s food for thought:

… The photo was taken ….

“If music be the food of love, play on”
Shakespeare: Twelfth Night – Act 1, Scene 1

“I will not be sworn but love may transform me to an oyster”
Shakespeare: Henry IV Part 2 – Act 3, Scene 2

“I know no ways to mince it in love, but directly to say ‘I love you’”
Shakespeare: King Henry, in Henry V, act 5, sc. 2, l. 126-9.

"Betwixt mine eye and heart a league is took, and each doth good turns now unto the other:  When that mine eye is famish’d for a look, or heart in love with sighs himself doth smother, With my love’s picture then my eye doth feast, and to the painted banquet bids my heart; another time mine eye is my heart’s guest, and in his thoughts of love doth share a part. So either by thy picture or my love, thyself away art present still with me, for thou not farther than my thoughts canst move, and I am still with them and they with thee; or, if they sleep, thy picture in my sight awakes my heart to heart’s and eye’s delight."
Shakespeare: Sonnet 47

It’s safe to say that both men enjoy/d fine food wouldn't you agree? [She laughs.]

Thank you jvolzie22 for tweeting this picture of Went.  And if it wasn’t for Went’s appetite for fine food and dining we wouldn’t have this beautiful picture of him. 

Thank you Went for making this possible, you look … these words express it far better than I could ever write them …

"Did my heart love 'til now? Foreswear its sight--for I never saw true beauty 'til this night."
Shakespeare:  Romeo and Juliet

“Hear my soul speak. Of the very instant that I saw you, Did my heart fly at your service”
Shakespeare: Romeo & Juliet – Act 2, Scene 1

And until we see you again Went …

“This bud of love by summer’s ripening breath, May prove a beauteous flower when next we meet”
Shakespeare: Love Quotes from Henry V – Act 5, Scene 2

"When you depart from me sorrow abides, and happiness takes his leave."
Shakespeare, from Much Ado About Nothing Act I Scene I

… And with that dear friends I’ll leave you with these words ….

“Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow.”

William Shakespeare
