The last installment of the Jurrasic World franchise saw the introduction of Kayla Watt in Jurassic World Dominion. Portrayed by DeWanda Wise, she co-stars with Chris Pratt in her first major blockbuster action film. But this is not her first major role.
In fact, Wise was set to appear on Disney’s hit Captain Marvel but left the set due to conflicting schedules with Netflix’s She’s Gotta Have It. In the Netflix series, she is notable for landing the role of Nola Darling.
While her professional life is at its peak, let’s explore her personal life details.
Who Is DeWanda Wise Husband?
DeWanda Wise is married to fellow actor Alano Miller, and they have been cherishing their relationship for over a decade.
In her interview with Paste Magazine, the American actress revealed that she and her husband Miller married just after three months of dating. The couple has been together since tying a knot in June 2009. Currently, they reside in Los Angeles.
For those who do not know about Miller, he is an actor who played Cato on WGN’s Underground. The 1997 Presidential Scholar Award winner is also the main cast on Showtime’s Dexter: New Blood as Sergeant Logan.
Couple Goals With Her Husband
Both Wise and Miller share the couple’s goals together, being a vegan. But her husband was hesitant to shift to a plant-based diet at first.
Miller grew up in the South, and being vegan was not in his cards. But after being married to his ladylove, the actor switched to eating healthier ingredients. He loves to eat chilies made by his wife.
After shifting to being a vegan, Miller shed 60-pounds weight focusing on a healthy diet and exercise.
Net Worth Explored
American actress DeWanda Wise has an estimated net worth of $1 million. She co-stars on Jurrasic World Dominion, which grossed $194.5 million at the box office, as per the reports of The Numbers.
During high school, Wise thought she wanted to be a therapist. But after taking AP Psychology at Atholton High School, she realized it was not for her, which she revealed to Baltimore Magazine. She then decided to shift her career path to acting.
She landed roles in the short films in 2006, playing Mrs. Elliot on Super Powers and Val on Who’s Calling. In 2007, she made her film debut on Spinning into Butter and also appeared in Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
Her most notable role came in 2017 on Netflix She’s Gotta Have It before landing as a regular cast on Shots Fired and Underground. Her other movies and TV shows credit includes Knucklehead, The Weekend, and Invasion, to name a few.
Wise is also set to appear as Solane on Showtime’s upcoming series Three Women.
