One of the absolute greatest joys of The Boys and Gen V‘s shared universe of Prime Video Shows (popularly shortened as TBAGVSUOPVS) is the media world that swirls around it. Where other franchises have tried — and failed — to build a virtual world around their fictional world, Prime Video has made things a delight. And nowhere is that better exemplified than through the Vought News Network’s recurring anchors, like Hailey Miller.
Played by Leigh Bush on screen, Miller is one of the two anchors we’ve seen popping up on the shows… And in the media surrounding them. The other is Cameron Coleman (Matthew Edison), who looks to be showing up in Episode 7 of Gen V. Both are clear parodies of Tucker Carlson/Laura Ingraham/Tomi Lahren-style Fox News anchors, complete with clearly non-news-focused agendas. As a heightened version, they’re even worse though as their “news” is controlled by the Vought Corporation.
With that in mind, let’s get into Hailey Miller and Leigh Bush. Here’s what you need to know.
Who Is Hailey Miller On Gen V And The Boys?
As mentioned, Hailey Miller is one of the main anchors for the Vought News Network. Here’s the official bio for the character shared by Prime Video’s X-Ray feature:
Hailey Miller is another broadcaster for Vought alongside Cameron Coleman. She is the host of both “VNN Today” and “One On One With Hailey Miller.” Her most viral interview was with Cassandra Schwartz, ex-wife of The Deep, about her book, “In 2 Deep: My Journey To Freedom.”
In the real world, Hailey Miller has appeared on two episodes of The Boys so far, both in Season 3: “Herogasm,” and “The Instant White-Hot Wild.” During the first episode, she interviewed Starlight (Erin Moriarty), Homelander (Antony Starr), and Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) about Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) wrecking a large chunk of Manhattan. In the second, as mentioned in the blurb above she interviewed Cassandra Schwartz (Katy Breier) about her divorce from The Deep (Chace Crawford).
Miller popped up again on Gen V this season in the second episode, “First Day.” There she was interviewing Marie Moreau (Jaz Sinclair) and Andre Anderson (Chance Perdomo) about becoming the Guardians of Godolkin. Unfortunately, Andre didn’t show up, and instead, Marie got lightly grilled by Hailey.
There’s one more place Miller appeared, and it’s one you might not know about if you only watch the TV shows… Hailey Miller “sat down” with The Deep and Cassandra for the faux-audiobook The Boys: Deeper and Deeper. Released by Audible in 2022, it was a “no-holds-barred” podcast interview between the three, framed around The Deep’s memoir. Actually written by Matt Berns, Crawford, Breier, and Bush all appear on the hour and 10-minute long podcast/audiobook. It is available for free with an Audible subscription.
As for future appearances? Nothing has been revealed yet. But with two more episodes of Gen V, and The Boys Season 4 — as well as the copious YouTube and other social shows rolled out as part of TBAGVSUOPVS, it’s only a matter of time before Hailey Miller is back on screen.
Who Plays Hailey Miller On Gen V And The Boys? Meet Leigh Bush:
Leigh Bush is a 40-year-old actress who has been in TV and film since 2010, according to her IMDb page. Some notable parts other than The Boys and Gen V include a bit role as News Reporter #2 on Starz’s The Girlfriend Experience, Heidi Stevens in one episode of The Hot Zone, and Business Woman on Chucky.
On social media, she’s only occasionally active on Instagram, with 1.2k followers (though it does look like she posts every birthday, so yay for her!)
Perhaps of note, there is also an entirely different actress named Leigh Bush. She’s also appeared in a ton of TV and Film roles, including Divergent and American Gigolo. They are, however, two entirely different people. How is this possible, you may ask? My main theory is that since (I believe) our Leigh Bush is Canadian, she’s in a different union than other Leigh Bush, who is American. Could be wrong, though!
Fun note: because I accidentally stumbled on one of the French wiki pages for Hailey Miller, Nicole Favart, a veteran voice actor who has been working since 1957, does the French dub voice for the character. The more you know!
