Louise Linton: Where Her Money Really Came From
Louise Linton was always rich.
Story continues below...
From when she was born, she had plenty of money, as her father was a wealthy developer in the UK.
In addition to owning one of the most famous castles in Scotland, which is set on 50 acres close to Edinburgh, Mr. Linton owned and developed several other properties. Linton’s siblings were and are also well known property developers.
Melville Castle, the Linton’s best known property, itself is worth tens of millions. Comparable castles for sale in the UK range from $5 – $20 million.
As Linton grew up, she got into acting, although she never became very well known. She had tiny parts in a few movies, and had larger parts in obscure films.
She got a JD from a US law school, although it’s not a real accredited school, so it wasn’t something that would earn her any significant money in a law job.
Once Linton met Mnuchin, she suddenly started getting some good jobs. First, she was put in charge of Mnuchin’s movie finance company, Ratpac-Dune entertainment. But she had to step down over conflicts of interest.
Currently, she is a part-time actor and essentially a socialite. Her net worth is below.

Louise Linton is from Edinburgh. She was born wealthy, being an owner of a castle in Scotland.
She went to Zambia to do volunteer work, and then went to a for-profit law school.
She acted for several years, including in the CBS show Cold Case, as well as smaller movies. But she didn’t become well known until June 2017, when she married Steve Mnuchin, the current U.S. Treasury Secretary.
Louise Linton gained controversy over the last 24 hours when she made this statement attacking a user on Instagram:
@Jennimiller29 cute!….Aw!! Did you think this was a personal trip?! Adorable! Do you think the US govt paid for our honeymoon or personal travel?! Lololol. Have you given more to the economy than me and my husband? Either as an individual earner in taxes OR in self sacrifice to your country? I’m pretty sure we paid more taxes toward our day “trip” than you did. Pretty sure the amount we sacrifice per year is a lot more than you’d be willing to sacrifice if the choice was yours.
Linton was raised in a very wealthy family, and attended the finest boarding schools. She’s in her early 30s now — much younger than Mnuchin.
During her time in acting, she founded a production company, although it’s unclear if the company every successfully produced any movies or shows.
