Wentworth Miller

It's not everday you get to travel to Paris, one of the world's most romantic cities, to meet one of the world's sexiest men.

Wentworth Earl Miller III has been staying in the swanky George V hotel in the heart of Paris, where fans have been camping out to try and get a glimpse of him.

Prison Break costs 1.5m per episode, attracting between eight and nine million viewers per show in the states.

In the UK it has a cult following on Sky One, and it is a big hit in Europe too, hence Miller's visit to Paris.

At the end of series three his character Michael Schofield broke out of jail for a second time.

But he says in the next season of the hit drama, we'll see a different side to him.

He said: "Michael at this point is making a very dark turn now that (on-screen girlfriend) Sara's dead.

"I think the question of how far across the line a good man can go before you can no longer call him good, is one that I'm looking forward to answering."

Interesting fan mail

As well as the fans hanging round the hotel entrance, the 35-year-old star says he gets bags and bags of letters and gifts from those who idolise him.

He added: "It's very sweet to open up a personalised CD, or I happen to mention Oreo cookies in one interview and then I get a whole bag full."

As well as the mail from kids, girls and fans of the show, Wentworth said he also gets letters from real inmates from time to time.

He and his co-stars have signed contracts for seven seasons of Prison Break, but Wentworth hopes it doesn't run for that long.

He said: "I'm all for pulling the plug on our terms, you know, before someone else does it for us."

Prison Break Season 3 is out on DVD on 19 May.
