Naya Rivera, of Glee fame, was arrested last night for alleged assault and battery in West Virginia. Rivera has made quite a fortune from Glee, and has other projects in the works.
So what is Naya Rivera net worth in 2018? What are Naya Rivera’s salary/earnings? And how much could an alleged assault cost her? Read on…
Naya Rivera was from a very successful family. Her brother is an NFL player, and her mother was a model. She got started in acting as a baby, doing commercials, and appearing in dozens of TV roles before the age of 10.
But her breakout role was in Glee, where she played Santana Lopez. She began as a recurring character, but then got promoted to the main cast. She eventually got solos, and became one of the most well-known characters in the show.
For her role in Glee, Naya Rivera was nominated for dozens of awards, and she was recognized by publications like TV Guide for being one of the best TV characters of the year.
Rivera also had other important projects. She released a solo record in 2013 — although it didn’t do particularly well. She also wrote a book.
Naya Rivera appeared in over a dozen TV shows, and several films. Nevertheless, most of her money came from her role in Glee.
Glee paid some actors really well. For instance, Leah Michelle, Jane Lynch, and Matthew Morrison all earned $80,000 or more per episode for the show at the end. Given that the show ran for 121 episodes, that’s a total of $5-8 million.
However, Rivera made somewhat less, given that she wasn’t a major part of the cast in the first season. Her salary is estimated at closer to $40,000 at the end.
In all, we estimate Naya Rivera net worth in 2018 at $3 million.
