Alden Ehrenreich is an American actor born on November 22nd, 1989 in Los Angeles, California, U.S. Most people will know him as the actor that plays a young Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Before he became a household name though, he started starring in small TV shows until he got bigger parts in Hollywood. That said, 2018 is sure to be the biggest year for the young actor. So what is Alden Ehrenreich net worth in 2018? What are Alden Ehrenreich’s salary/earnings? Read on…
Early in Alden Ehrenreich’s life, he was an only child who started acting in both Palisades Elementary School and in Crossroads School. After he graduated high school, he then studied acting school at New York University, although he never did finish off his university degree. This did not stop him from entering Hollywood though because a comedy video he starred in caught the eye of director Steven Spielberg back when he was only a teenager. It was this video that broke the door for him in Hollywood because he got one off parts in TV shows such as Supernatural and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Despite starting his career in television, he never did another TV show ever again and solely concentrated acting in movies instead for the foreseeable future.
His first biggest movie role was starring in a movie called Tetro directed by famed director Francis Ford Coppola. Many critics praised his performance in the movie, although he was far from a famous name yet. He then starred in another Francis Ford Coppola film called Twixt in 2011, although this was just a minor role and he did not get that much recognition yet.
It wasn’t until he got the role of Ethan Wate in the film Beautiful Creatures did his career start to rise. In the 2013 film, he was nominated for his role for two Teen Choice awards although he did not win. Critical acclaim did not come for the actor until he played Hobie Doyle in the Coen Brothers directed Hail, Caesar! This role allowed him to be nominated for more prestigious awards in the movie industry for Best Supporting Actor. He may not have won any awards, but he was finally a new name to look out for.
After Hail, Caesar!, Disney/Lucasfilm casted him as Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story after a very long audition process. This role is his largest one to date and is sure to open even more doors for his young acting career.
Despite winning the role of Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story, Lucasfilm hired an acting coach for him so that he could act more like Han Solo. Original Han Solo actor Harrison Ford even came to teach him how to act like ‘Han Solo’. The work he did paid off as Solo: A Star Wars Story came out in May 2018 and many critics have praised his performance in the movie. The success of the film could mean there might be Han Solo sequels made in the future. Not to mention it will help him get even more roles in bigger movies. For now, Alden Ehrenreich has already amassed quite a bit of money for himself in 2018 but his net worth could always grow even bigger in the near future. Unlike other Star Wars actors like Hayden Christensen and Jake Lloyd, it looks like Alden Ehrenreich will continue acting and will have a great career ahead of him.
In all, we estimate Alden Ehrenreich net worth in 2018 at $3.5 million.
