Have you ever wondered about the actors that you see in TV commercials? What does it take to become one and how much money do they actually make? Well, it turns out they make a lot of it. Here's a list of people who succeeded in getting rich thanks to their acting in TV ads.
Carly Foulkes and T-Mobile
Everyone remembers her from the T-Mobile commercials, after which she started to work for the same company. But after she quit in 2013, the fatal blow from the company came with her being replaced by Shakira. However, her net worth is $3 million so there is nothing to complain about.
The Guy from the Sonic Drive-In Commercials
T.J. Jagodowski started making his appearances in commercials for this fast food chain in 2004. In just a few years, he made a fortune worth 300,000 dollars. They don't call him Chicago's greatest improv actor for nothing!
Melanie Paxson and Red Robin Commercials
If you don't remember her face, you will most definitely recognize her voice. Besides being most prominent in Red Robin commercials as playing a lonely hamburger lover, she gave her voice in many other TV ads. And she made $600,000.
Isaiah Mustafa and Old Spice
There is no chance that you've missed him in those brilliant Old Spice commercials. They were the most viral commercials ever, and the company started filming Mustapha's responses on personal questions that they got online every day. And his worth? Well, he got 5 million dollars in no time.
Jonathan Goldsmith Is the 'Most Interesting Man in the World'
