Drop Dead Diva might have flown under the radar while on air, but it actually experienced a lot of success and continued on for six seasons from 2009 to 2014! This American legal comedy-drama aired on Lifetime starred Brooke Elliott as a fashion model trapped inside the body of a plus-sized lawyer. The show gave face to a lot of new actors alongside some more experienced performers creating a much more diverse cast. In an odd twist of events, the series was cancelled during the fourth season, but then brought back after the finale experienced a season high viewership, which means they had an extremely loyal fan following! It’s only been two years since the show went off the air, but we’re curious to see where the cast is now! Here’s a look at how much they are worth:

6. Josh Stamberg
