How did Bella Thorne Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on October 8, 1997, in Pembroke Pines, Florida, Bella Thorne (Real Name: Annabella Avery Thorne) is the youngest out of four children; her three older siblings, Remy, Danielle, and Kaili are also actors. During her childhood, she was diagnosed with dyslexia, a learning disability that affected her ability to read. While this led to a certain degree of bullying in school, she was ultimately able to overcome it through perseverance and hard work.
Like many young actors, Bella entered the entertainment industry early on in her life. When she was just six years old, she appeared in her first film, Stuck on You (2003)– albeit in an uncredited role. It wasn’t until a few years later in 2006, that she landed her first credited role in Entourage. From there, the blonde played a handful of small roles in The O.C. (2007), The Seer (2007), Blind Ambition (2008), and October Road (2008).
In the fall of 2008, she received her first recurred role in the ABC drama, Dirty Sexy Money where she’d appeared for a four-episode arc. Not long afterwards, Bella was cast as one of the lead protagonists in the NBC drama series, My Own Worst Enemy (2008), alongside Christian Slater, Taylor Lautner, Madchen Amick, and Saffron Burrows, among others.
Premiered on October 13, 2008, My Own Worst Enemy saw her playing the role of Ruthy Spivey, the youngest child of Slater and Amick’s characters. Although the show garnered some impressive ratings, having pulled in over 7 million viewers for its series premiere for example, it was later cancelled after nine episodes. Despite this, it had played a tremendous role in the launching of Bella’s acting career.
In 2009, Bella starred in the short series, Little Monk which as its title implies, centred around the adventures of a young monk and his brother as they solve mysteries at school. During that time, the actress also made a couple guest appearances in the TV series, In the Motherhood (2009), and Mental (2009).
The following year, another big opportunity came in the form of the Primetime Emmy Award-nominated HBO drama series, Big Love (2010). Originally debuted in 2006, Bella joined the main cast in the fourth season, playing the role of Nancy Hendrickson. Ultimately, she appeared in a handful of episodes before departing the show.
In November 2010, the actress turned into a Disney idol after being cast in the teen sitcom, Shake it Up. Created by Chris Thompson, Bella starred alongside Zendaya who played the role of her best friend on-screen. In the comedy, she took on the role of CeCe Jones, an impulsive teen who has a huge love for dancing; despite a few initial mishaps, she eventually lands a spot in the dance show, Shake it Up Chicago with her friend.
Premiered on November 7, 2010 on the Disney Channel, Shake it Up was a huge success; in fact, it became the highest-rated series premiere in 27 years, with over 6.2 million viewers (most of which were in their preteens or teens). One of the greatest highlights of Bella’s acting career to this day, she later reprised her role for two additional seasons, until 2013.
Praised for her performance in the series, Bella also contributed to several songs from the soundtrack including Watch Me, a duet with fellow co-star, Zendaya. A huge hit, it ended up reaching number 86 on the Billboard Top 100 and number 9 on the Top Heatseekers chart. The club-oriented beat was later certified gold by the RIAA after selling over 500,000 copies in the United States.
Some of the other tracks that she performed included Fashion is my Kryptonite (2012), and Contagious Love (2013).
Since the end of Shake it Up in 2013, she has made a number of guest appearances in the shows Good Luck Charlie (2011), Frenemies (2012), Phineas and Ferb (2014), Red Band Society (2014), K.C. Undercover (2015), and Scream (2015). Most recently this year, she returned as a starring character in the new Freeform drama, Famous in Love (2017).
Besides her work on television, Bella has appeared in numerous films throughout her career. After appearing as a sidelines fan in Stuck on You (2003), she landed a supporting role in the drama film, Blind Ambition (2003), where she worked alongside actors Michelle Massey, Christopher Atkins, Gulshan Grover, Deep Katdare, and Vanessa Angel.
Then, she went on to play a few smaller roles in the movies, The Seer (2007), Forget Me Not (2009), and My Day. My Life (2010). It wasn’t until November 2010 that that she scored a lead part in the drama film, One Wish. Directed by Felix Limardo, it featured Bella as “The Messenger”- an angel who grants a man one wish after he saves the life of a three year old child.
Later that same year, she was selected to co-star in the independent film, Raspberry Magic (2010), alongside Lily Javherpour, Ravi Kapoor, and Meera Simhan. Despite being a low budget production, the movie garnered many praises from critics and even earned an ward at the Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival.
After a few voice over roles in Underdogs (2013), and The Frog Kingdom (2013), she starred in the horror comedy, Mostly Ghostly: Have You Met My Ghoulfriend? in 2014. On a roll, Bella later found herself playing a lead character in the films, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (2014), and The Snow Queen 2: The Snow King (2014).
In 2015, Bella received one of her biggest roles yet in the teen comedy, The DUFF. Adapted from a novel of the same name, it centred around a group of high school students in the Atlanta suburbs. A considerable success, the film ended up grossing over $43.5 million, against a budget of just $8.5 million. Reportedly, the actress was paid a whopping $250,000 for her role as Madison in the movie.
As far as other endeavours go, she’s published three novels: Autumn Falls (2015), Autumn’s Kiss (2016), and Autumn’s Wish (2016). In 2015, she also played the title character in a stage production of Alice in Wonderland.
Currently, the 19-year-old star has an estimated net worth of $2 million. Let’s try to answer our original question- where did she earn most of this money from? From everything that’s been said earlier, it’s clear that Bella yielded most, if not all of this fortune, from her success as an actress. Looking back, she probably earned the most from her roles in My Own Worst Enemy, Shake it Up, and The DUFF (as they’re some of her most prominent acting roles).
Will her net worth continue to rise over the next few years? Considering how successful she’s been up until now, we’re inclined to say yes. In fact just recently, she starred as the main female lead in the Freeform series, Famous in Love (2017).
