Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

This winsome, wholesome young actress has the dubious distinction of having given Peewee Herman his first screen kiss (in 1988's Big Top Pee-wee but has gone on to costar with such formidable actors as Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, and Al Pacino. Miller made her film debut in Adventures in Babysitting (1987), but first attracted notice reprising her Broadway performance in Neil Simon's Biloxi Blues (1988). Other films quickly followed, including Miles from Home (1988), DeadBang (1989), Downtown and Kindergarten Cop (both 1990). She was a slyly funny daughter to comic Mafioso Brando in The Freshman (1990) and a warm friend to Robert De Niro in Awakenings (also 1990). She was miscast as Danny De Vito's adversary in Other People's Money (1991), and was marking time in the leading roles of two 1992 releases, Year of the Comet and The Gun in Betty Lou's Handbag. Her appearance as Charlie Chaplin's leading lady Edna Purviance in Chaplin that same year promised more, but was far too brief to make any impact. Then in 1993 she won the most ambitious role of her career, as Al Pacino's girlfriend (a topless dancer, no less) in Carlito's Way the character caused Miller to stretch more than she ever had on-screen before, and leave behind some of the "nice-girl" blandness of her earlier work. In 1994 she won the role of Margo Lane, girlfriend to Lamont Cranston, aka The Shadow. Her father is actor-director Mark Miller, best remembered as the leading man on the TV sitcom "Please Don't Eat the Daisies."
