About Evan Ross
The actor and musician we are going to speak about is quoted saying: „The way I choose projects is based on what I think is most real and most interesting, not on what’s paying the most money or what’s most popular“. However, Evan Ross net worth amounts to $20 million dollars and he has stared his professional career only 9 years ago, at the age 17. So obviously, the projects he has chosen during this time must have been not only interesting, but also incredibly lucrative. What kind of projects it was? What are the main sources of Evan Ross net worth? In order to answer these questions we will have to take a closer look at his personal life and career.
As you might know, Evan is a son of cult entertainer, actress, singer and record producer Diana Ross, who ascended to stardom in the 1960s as the lead singer of the band The Supremes and went on to build a successful solo career. As a singer, she is best known for such unforgettable hits as “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand)” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”. In fact, Diana is often named one of the most successful female musicians ever, due to her popularity in the United Kingdom and the United States. While singing, Diana has also managed to establish herself as a talented actress. I think her greatest critical success was the movie Lady Sings the Blues, for which she received nominations for a Golden Globe Award and Academy Award. Not surprisingly, she is much, much richer than her son, who is still only 26 years old – while Evan Ross net worth amounts to $20 million, Diana has some $250 million in her disposal.
Some of the later roles Diana did were in television movies Double Platinum and Out of the Darkness. Evan has mentioned the later of these movies in one of his interviews. He said: „I always loved movies, especially watching some of my mom’s films when I was younger, like ‘Out of Darkness,’ where she played a schizophrenic“. So most likely it was his mother who inspired Evan to pursue career in acting. And when did this pursuit start? I guess some time in the mid-2000s… Evan made his movie debut appearing as Anton Swan in ATL and the following year went on to portray Amare McCarter on Life Support. This role has garnered Ross a nomination for “Outstanding Actor in a Television Movie, Mini-Series or Dramatic Special” in 2008 Image Awards. More recently the actor has appeared in a movie 96 minutes for which he received “Breakthrough Performance” Award in 2011. Since 2007 the actor has also been trying to establish himself as a singer. However, at least so far it did not help to increase Evan Ross net worth.
