Cast of Orange Is The New Black: How Much Are They Worth?

  
Slide 1 of 5 | View On One Page

The cast of Orange Is The New Black has enjoyed three very successful seasons on Netflix, and they’ve locked into a fourth that will be released during the spring of 2016. People simply cannot get enough of the women at Litchfield Penitentiary. No, the cast isn’t raking in the green like the big three on Big Bang Theory, but they are amassing some pretty impressive wealth, and own the bragging rights of being on a much better show–relatively speaking. Let’s consider the cast, and the fat stacks they’re enjoying after three years of success.

9. Samira Wiley

Estimated Net Worth: $1 million. Samira Wiley is one of several actresses in the cast of Orange Is The New Black who have enjoyed some classical training, before hitting the small screen in the Netflix female prison phenomenon. Samira was born in Washington D.C., and scored her post secondary fine arts education at a little institution called The Julliard School. People may be surprised to see salary totals for the cast of OITNB are a little lower than those of network television. It’s the nature of the beast. Nonetheless, there’s nothing like a supremely popular, award winning show to guarantee bigger paydays down the line. That having been stated, a million bucks is still a million bucks, and that’s net worth. We imagine Samira to be wise and refined with her finances, regardless of her rough around the edges character, Poussey Washington.

8. Uzo Aduba

Estimated Net Worth: $1 million. Uzo Aduba. A name like that should be in lights. A self-described jock, Uzo is another from the cast of Orange Is The New Black who enjoyed classical training while in college. For Uzo, it came in the form of classical voice, and from Boston University. The Massachusetts native stayed on the east coast to begin her career, and after enjoying several accolades in the realm of live theater, she began to do more auditions for film and television. She didn’t bag the role she originally auditioned for on OITNB, but the producers loved her so much, they had to have her as “Crazy Eyes.” This was somewhat shocking to Uzo who didn’t know what would merit such a casting decision, but the former track and field star ran with the role, and opportunity. Her stack of awards serve as proof from the pudding.
