Education and career
Kevin's father noticed his son's interest in acting and television when he was nine years old:
You’re watching all these shows on TV of these people doing all these cool things and you want to be them. And as an actor, you can be anything.
While in elementary school, the boy started to work on his acting skills. The role of Lord Capulet in Romeo and Juliet was his debut on stage.
The play was a success. As a result, the young actor realized his dream of becoming an actor.
Upon graduation from school in 2004, he enrolled in the Chicago Academy for the Arts to study theatre and acting. He graduated from it in 2008.
Then, he went on to study theatre at Webster University. He graduated from it in 2012 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. After that, he decided to move to LA to find a quality job. At first, he had some doubts and fears about moving there:
I was confused whether I wanted to go to LA or New York or I should stay in Chicago, my hometown, and save up money and build some credits there.
Thanks to his mother's support, he bought an old car and went on to pursue his dream. Before finding a room, he had to sleep in his car for some time.
His dream of becoming an actor turned out to be a challenge. Living in LA was difficult. Thanks to his friends’ advice, he got on casting networks, which allowed him to get more noticed. He did not refuse from playing small minor roles:
It was definitely hard. I kept going. It was brick-by-brick and making sure I put my best foot forward and go for it.
Over time, he began to land roles in TV commercials. He was invited to an audition for the role of Jake from State Farm one day. In an interview, the actor stated that the CMO of State Farm, Rand [Harbert], did not think he was the right actor for the role:
I was not looking for you. I was definitely looking for the original 'Jake.' It was my wife that saw your callback sheet and said 'That’s your Jake' immediately.
After he played Jake, Kevin Miles woke up famous. He became one of the most popular TV commercial actors at the time.
He regularly filmed commercials alongside the renowned sports superstars Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes.
