The year 2017 ushered in great opportunities for actor Sam Adegoke. It opened with a bang when he was cast in the reboot of Dynasty, a well-known primetime television soap opera in the 1980s.
Sam Adegoke plays the role of Jeff Colby, a wealthy tech guru who worked his way up from humble beginnings. Adding this achievement to the different roles he played over the last few years, how much wealth has Adegoke accumulated and what is Sam Adegoke net worth? The Squander will give you the scoop.
Sam Adegoke was born in Lagos, Nigeria but now calls Los, Angeles, California as his home. This ABC Discovers: Digital Talent Competition winner bagged a one year $25,000 talent deal. He also secured a place in the 2015 New York or Los Angeles ABC Discovery Talent Showcase.
Sam Adegoke started his career in 2014 when he was cast in the short film, “I’m Good” and in “Find Your Instrument”. In the following year, Sam Adegoke made his mainstream debut when he appeared in an episode of “Wicked City” as Graham Walker. Sam Adegoke also starred in the film, “The Total Princess”.
Sam Adegoke was featured in several TV series including Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Code Black and NCIS: Los Angeles. He is well known for playing Billy James in Murder in the First. Sam Adegoke also had a recurring role in Switched At Birth.
Another accomplishment for Sam Adegoke this year is playing the role of Javon Beard, the King of Pop’s bodyguard, in the biopic, Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland. This film is based on the popular book that Beard wrote in 2014 entitled Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson In His Final Days.
On “Dynasty,” Sam Adegoke will be playing a character from a wealthy rival family.
According to indewire, the executive producer Josh Schwartz , who also produced the OC and Gossip Girl, the timing is a right to feature the narrative of the Carrington family.:
“We are definitely living in an age of dynasties.”…”Pointing to the Trumps, the Clintons, the Kardashians, and the Murdochs, he noted, “That was something that really got us excited to do the show.”
How much is Sam Adegoke worth after appearing on television for a few years? Although it has not been long since his acting debut, he has played different roles in several films. Now, given that Dynasty is his first huge role, however, we anticipate that Sam didn’t have much bargaining power when it came to negotiating his contract.
So, we suspect he got paid thousands, rather than hundreds of thousands of dollars for each of the Dynasty episodes he filmed. Therefore, we estimate that Sam Adegoke net worth in 2017 is in the ballpark of $1 million.
