By leaps and bounds, Sam Heughan a place was opened in the industry. Thanks to his role as Jamie Fraser in Outlander rose to international fame and, therefore, became one of the most sought after actors. And, in addition to being the main protagonist of this series, the Scottish artist already has an extensive curriculum in his career where he has several films in which he participated.
Still, beyond the amount of work he has and new projects, including his Whiskey company, Sam Heughan is still part of Outlander. In fact, next year the sixth season of this strip will premiere with the cast, which will arrive with only six episodes at the same time that the filming of the seventh edition will begin.
That is why so much work and movement that the actor makes to be part of the greats of Hollywood seems to be well paid. The thing is, People with Money has just cataloged him at number one in the ranking of the ten highest paid actors in the world. From what said media reports, Heughan has an estimated earnings of $ 96 million.
Also, according to People with Money, Sam is dragging this figure between August 2020 and August 2021. This budget gives you a $ 60 million advantage over your closest competitor. The annual list was created based on advance payments, participation benefit, residual income, endorsements, and advertising work.
All these factors that the magazine takes into account to create the ranking led to Sam Heughan to be the first since it has an estimated net worth of $ 275 million. This is because he not only works as an actor, but also has his business side since he owns several restaurants, an American football team, his own brand of whiskey and also put out perfume and clothing lines.
Smart investments in stocks and the top spot on this list are a triumphant return for Heughan. Before catapulting to world stardom, the actor was about to give up everything, but with Outlander, his life changed forever.
