If you like The Young and the Restless, you probably already know that the show consistently gets high ratings. But did you know that the actors’ paychecks often reflect these high ratings? They are among the world’s wealthiest people, which says a lot.
When it comes down to it, the top three wealthiest stars of this soap opera don’t even come close to the amount of money that some of the stars in Genoa City have made. How cool is that! Five of the best-paid actors on TV work on The Young and the Restless.
Even though her parents, Lee Phillip Bell and William J. Bell, made famous soap operas like The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful, Lauralee Bell’s life was not easy.
She started acting in 1983 when she played a fashion model on The Young and the Restless soap opera. A few years later, she was cast as Christine Blair, a character she had to make up from scratch.
She is also an actress, and in 2013 she won a Daytime Emmy for getting the popular web series mI promise. Currently, the star’s net worth is around $200 million, which she earned through acting and producing jobs.
Eric Braeden, an American actor, has played the role of Victor Newman since 1980. Braeden played the same role on The Young and the Restless for a few years, but he also had parts in several other shows.
Hawaii Five-O, The Bold and the Beautiful, Gunsmoke, and How I Met Your Mother are all examples of this kind of show. He was in several movies, such as Titanic and Escaped from the Planet of the Apes. But the primary source of his $25 million fortune was his job as Victor Newman.
Daniel Goddard is an Australian actor who has done very well in soap operas. The actor first became known to a broad audience through the Australian soap opera “Home and Away.”
Soon after that, he became famous worldwide and was cast as the main character in a Canadian drama called BeastMaster.
He also had the chance to write six episodes for the show. During filming, he also got noticed for his excellent appearance, leading to modelling jobs with well-known companies like Calvin Klein and Dolce & Gabbana.
Christel Khalil has been an actress for a long time, but The Young and the Restless fans probably know her best as Lily Winters. When she was only six years old, she started acting. She won the award for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Daytime Series not long after that.
Peter Bergman’s first role was as Dr Cliff Warner on the popular CBS show Kojak. In 1989, he joined the cast of The Young and the Restless as Jack Abbott, a role he had played for ten years on Kojak.
This was his big break. Most of Bergman’s reported $10 million net worth comes from how popular he is in daytime dramas.
Aside from guest spots on The King of Queens and The Bold and the Beautiful, Bergman hasn’t made many movies. Outside of daytime dramas, he has worked on shows like Palamino, Money, Murder, and Fantasies.
