I am not sure whether MM should be described as a Czech actor. I cannot find any evidence that he viewed himself as Czech. Although he was born in an area that became part of Czechoslovakia in 1918, it was still part of the Austro-Hungarian empire when he was born and at least from the 1920s his main base was Vienna. Although he performed in theatres in Czechoslovakia in the 1920s and 1930s, they were mainly German language productions, and he himself was a German speaker, although I do not know whether he also spoke Czech. In a number of academic publications he is described as an Austrian actor . --DrClareG (talk) 16:40, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Support. Meant to do something about this a year ago, per the note above, but forgot entirely! I agree that avoiding Austrian/Czech/etc in the title is the most elegant approach given the complications here. Andrew Gray (talk) 23:22, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
Though the by birthyear titles ought to exist as redirects. -- 18.104.22.168 (talk) 23:04, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
Oppose disambiguation by date of birth - although "Austrian émigré actor Martin Miller" is more common, per Adrian Room Naming Names: Stories of Pseudonyms and Name Changes - 1981 "Martin Miller: Rudolph Muller (1899- 1969) Czech film actor, ..." is found; no objection to Martin Miller (Moravian actor).

Support a move in principle and the proposal as the least worst option but absolutely oppose a move to Martin Miller (Moravian actor). That is even less helpful than the current title. I would fathom that 90+% of those seeking the article would have no idea he was born in Moravia (or, for many, that there is even a real place called Moravia). He was not notable for any activities in Moravia, Bohemia, Czechia, Austria, or any other Central European country. A disambiguator is to help readers find the right article, not to pedantically list his birthplace. At least 1899 vs. 1975 would contain information a TV/film viewer might be able to work with. — AjaxSmack 01:43, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
Support the original suggestion. Oppose "Martin Miller (Moravian actor)". Bandy boy (talk) 11:16, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
