In the years that followed, Miles Heizer played parts in two short films “Loon” (2008) and “The Arm” (2012). In 2010, he became a main part of the series “Parenthood” the comedy-drama revolving around three Braverman family on NBC. It was a massive job for Miles who played the role of Dave Holt in 103 episodes up till 2015.

In 2013, he co-starred in the musical drama film “Rudderless” as Josh a student in college who was shot dead in a mass shooting in the middle of his recording of demo songs. The movie was a directorial debut and made with 5 million dollars but only managed to make just above half a million dollars.

In 2015, he was a supporting member of the cast of the docudrama thriller film “The Stanford Prison Experiment” as a supporting member of the cast in which students (including a certain Ki Hong Lee) of a Philosophy class in Standford played either guard or prisoner in an experiment. The film was more successful than “Rudderless” in that it made 649, 690 dollars in the box office. Heizer’s last movie appearance as the time of writing this was “Love, Simon”.

From 2017 to date, he became a part of the show “13 Reasons Why” based on the novel “Thirteen Reasons Why” by Jay Asher on Netflix about a student whose 13 suicide cassette tapes began a chain of events that was the three seasons and 39 episodes of the show. Miles Heizer played the role of the Alex Standall the deceased former friend in the entire 39 episodes of the series.

Net worth and relationship

Heizer is not a blockbusting-earning actor yet. 22 credits are not a lot in the money market for any actor still rising in the ladder of stardom, made more so by the fact that more than half of these were either as a child or as a teenager. It is even made more difficult by the fact that Forbes and Wealth Gorilla ain’t falling on themselves to profile Heizer’s income.

From what we garnered he was paid 115 thousand dollars for each of the 13 episodes he featured in in the third season of “13 Reasons Why”. That’s a total of 1.5 million dollars. But Heizer has bills to paid and his earnings cannot just be calculated off the back of this one show. The second “but” is the fact that Heizer has done many other shows with which he could’ve paid his bills with.

We have no information as to whom Miles is in a relationship with. He has not been connected with any girl in and outside Hollywood. But we know about the rumor that he is in a same-sex relationship with his co-star in “13 Reasons Why” Justin Foley.
