Britain certainly has talent. In fact, some of the top actresses and actors in movies today are from the U.K. Most have won Academy Awards and various other accolades. While some took years to make it to the international scene, for others it was virtually immediate.
It’s also important to note that they’ve all come from different education, background, and acting disciplines. Consequently, they’ve had varying levels of monetary success. Here’s a list of stars with the highest net worth.
Sacha Baron Cohen
The actor is known for playing goofballs in his numerous varied characters and roles. Initially, he started with modeling before he started hosting a weekly TV program. He first featured in the British comedy “The Jolly Boy’s.” However, he gained fame for his character as a boring junglist as the character Ali G, earning him the BAFTA award in 2001.
Over the years, he has interviewed journalists, politicians and other celebrities. Yet his role in Borat eventually made him a global star with an approximated net worth of $100 million. Some of the charities he has supported include Feeding America, Save the Children, and International Medical Corps. In 2015, he and his wife donated $1million to Syrian refugees.
The actor has attained the worldwide mark and featured in Hannibal as a serial killer. He won the Academy Award for his great performance in the series. While he’s featured in several movies, his role in Hannibal surpassed any other performance.
