An actress went viral on TikTok after she revealed the full breakdown of her income and expenses despite being paid $15k per episode for almost 80 episodes.
Her response revealed some serious expenditure on different parts of the acting world that she described as vital to her job.
Actress goes viral after revealing true earnings on TikTok
In her TikTok video, Kane said: “Say I did 78 episodes. That pairs out to $1.56 million for four years of work, so assuming I’ve made $5 million in my entire career since I started working at 16, here’s how that breaks down.
“10% goes to my agent, 10% goes to my manager, 5% goes to my lawyer, 5% goes to my business manager, and then I get taxed a further 30% because I’m a foreign national working in the US.
“So I lose 60% right off the bat, which leaves me with about $2.2 million over the last 14 years, which if you average it out comes down to $178,000-ish a year. Which is fine, good wage.
“Except that I have to pay rent in major cities, sometimes in two major cities at once, I have to pay a publicist, which is usally $2-3000 a month, when I’ve had social media teams thats been about $2000 a month. Stylists run anywhere from $1700 to $1500 an outfit, and hair and makeup is about $1000.
The comments were divided; some viewers thought the expenses made sense in the industry, while others thought it was still preferable to other types of work.
One watcher said: “I tell people often that many actors & actresses they think are “rich” are not…this is great…and it doesn’t even get into other expenses.”
Another countered: “You’re complaining to an app full of people who work at Burger King for $20k a year, I don’t think they’re hearing you.
What is Adelaide Kane’s net worth?
While it’s all well and good to look at celebrities who have earned millions on the screen with envy (singers the same, we suppose), it seems we all underestimate just how much money they also spend on their teams.
The Australian star found the speculation as to her wealth hilarious, as she insisted her ‘crippling debt’ suggested otherwise, before launching into a rundown of her finances (as we’ve seen above).
So, how much is Adelaide Kane worth? Despite the Reign actress going viral back in 2020 for breaking down how much is supposedly worth and addressing how expensive it is to be famous, the Australian actress and model, Adelaide Kane (whose real name is Adelaide Victoria Kane), has an estimated net worth of $5 million, per TheWikiFeed.
She is known for portraying Aubrey in comedy-drama film “Goats” (2012) and Fiona Ardene in science fiction action film “Cosmic Sin” (2021). She is the recipient of numerous accolades, including the Logie Awards (2008), Monte-Carlo Television Festival (2014), Teen Choice Awards (2014).
