With her lithe frame and ethereal beauty, Abby Miller leaps into the folds of her characters with delirious abandon – crafting compelling character portraits that are at once achingly fragile and steeled in truth.
As world-weary prostitute Ellen May on the Emmy Award-winning FX series JUSTIFIED, Miller is both refreshingly unaffected and daringly courageous. Wholly without self-awareness, Miller’s approach to hardscrabble Ellen May is always surprising and true. Ultimately, in Miller’s honesty, we recognize parts of ourselves in Ellen May – a startling and humbling revelation.
Miller’s recurring role on JUSTIFIED follows on the heels of memorable comedic and dramatic guest starring roles on MAD MEN, PRIVATE PRACTICE, and THE NINE to name a few. Upcoming projects include science fiction series THE BOOTH AT THE END and the feature film CONGRATULATIONS (which Miller co-wrote), FUZZ TRACK CITY, and IT’S NOT YOU, IT’S ME with Vivica A. Fox.
A prolific writer and gifted vocalist, Miller writes screenplays, poetry, and music. Prior to JUSTIFIED, Miller toured extensively with the indie musical duo JEN & ABBY, which garnered a loyal fan base on the west coast and led to gigs at several iconic LA venues and finally a regular “home” at Hotel Café.
A native of Nebraska, Miller lives and works in Los Angeles. When not on set, she lends her time and talent to causes that promote the responsible and loving treatment of animals.
