TRAINSPOTTING star Jonny Lee Miller has revealed a huge career change where he could help save lives.
The British heartthrob actor who’s now 50, told his Instagram followers on Monday that he has completed a five-month course at Suffolk County Fire Academy on Long Island, New York.
He is at the Firefighter One level, which is one of two levels of training you need to become a volunteer firefighter.
Miller also shared a group picture with his fellow now-qualified firefighters.
“Huge thank you to all the instructors, but especially Chief Sicilian, who took great care of class 2, and never got mad at us (externally).
“Can’t wait to serve the community I love on Fire Island NY,” he wrote in the post.
Jonny has been documenting his training on social media, posting pictures of his firefighter gear.
The star made his TV debut at the age of nine with an uncredited appearance in a 1982 episode of Doctor Who.
Throughout the 90s and early 2000s, Jonny continued his TV career.
He starred alongside Lucy Liu in the Sherlock Holmes drama Elementary from 2012-2019.
Most recently, in 2022, he played former British Prime Minister John Major in season five of the popular royal docudrama, The Crown.
Fans gushed over Miller’s performance.
“Jonny as Major??? Really blessed,” one Twitter user said.
Another wrote: “Jonny Lee Miller appreciation tweet, even as John Major I can’t un-see the hotness.”
“Oh look, It’s Clark Kent. I mean, John Major,” a third chimed in.
Jonny also starred in films such as the 1996 British comedy-drama Trainspotting and 1995’s Hackers with Angelina Jolie, who he was married to from 1996-1999.
