Cast Of The Originals: How Much Are They Worth?Published on July 21, 2016. Updated October 31, 2019
Jumping on the vampire bandwagon, The Originals is an American teen drama series that was created as a spin-off from the popular CW series known as The Vampire Diaries. The show follows the infamous Klaus Mikaelson and his family as they tackle the supernatural politics in New Orleans. The cast is made up of a few favorites from The Vampire Diaries, but also introduces new members like Danielle Campbell, Leah Pipes and Charles Michael Davis. The Originals started back in 2013 and is currently filming the fourth season due sometime next year — it’s had great success and even sparked a new novel series! Here’s a quick look at how much the main cast of The Originals are worth.
7. Claire Holt
Estimated Net Worth: $500 thousand. This Australian actress is best known for her role as Rebekah Mikaelson on The Vampire Diaries and now it’s spin-off series, The Originals. Prior to joining these two shows she also had a regular series role on the television show H2O: Just Add Water as Emma Gilbert. Holt doesn’t have a very dense resume, but it seems every role she’s taken on as an actress has either been as a series regular, main character or in a recurring role. She had a main role in the film Blue Like Jazz and is currently a series regular on the show Aquarius. In addition to her series regular roles, she had a recurring role on The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars. Holt also appeared in the television film, Mean Girl 2. Despite her prominent roles, her net worth is still relatively low sitting at around $500 thousand.
6. Danielle Campbell
Estimated Net Worth: $500 thousand. Danielle Campbell started her career as a Disney star in the role of Jessica Olson in the film StarStruck and as Simone Daniels in Prom. In addition to these two films, Campbell appeared in The Poker House, Madea’s Witness Protection and the upcoming film Race to Redemption. When it comes to television, her career is just as short but she took on a recurring role on Prison Break and one-episode appearances on Zeke and Luther and Drop Dead Diva. Campbell’s biggest role has been as Davina Claire on The Originals from 2013 to 2016. For a small actress who is only 21-years-old, she’s doing quite well for herself! Her estimated net worth is $500 thousand.
5. Leah Pipes
Estimated Net Worth: Unknown. Pipes is most widely remembered for her role in the slasher film, Sorority Row. She’s had a pretty good film career with leading roles in projects like Odd Girl Out, Fingerprints, Her Best Move, Conception and Musical Chairs. She’s also been heavily involved in television with a few regular roles on shows like Lost at Home, Life is Wild, The Deep End and her current role on The Originals. Outside of her regular roles, Pipes has made many one-episode appearances on super popular shows like Glee, Law & Order, The Vampire Diaries, Crossing Jordan, Malcolm in the Middle and Bones. It’s quite surprising that her net worth is unknown because she’s been extremely active as an actress. She’s only 27-years-old so we expect to see a lot more from her in the future! Right now, we suspect her net worth is around $1 million.
4. Daniel Gillies
Estimated Net Worth: $3 million. This Canadian-born New Zealand actor started making waves in his career when he appeared as Elijah Mikaelson on The Vampire Diaries. He reprises his character in The Originals, a role he continues with today. Another role that Gillies is well known for is a stint on the series Saving Hope as Dr. Joel Goran from 2012 to 2015. Those are his three main roles on television, but he’s also done one episode appearances on shows like True Blood, NCIS, The Glades, Masters of Horror, Jeremiah and Mentors. Daniel Gillies had a starring role in the films Captivity and Bride and Prejudice, and held small roles in mega-films like Spider-Man 2 and Snow Queen. Today, his estimated net worth sits around $3 million.
3. Phoebe Tonkin
Estimated Net Worth: $3 million. Tonkin is an Australian model and actress who started her acting career on the Australian show H2o: Just Add Water. After that the roles just kept rolling in! On television she’s held mostly regular and recurring roles which is quite impressive. Tonkin had a recurring role on Packed to the Rafters, Home and Away and The Vampire Diaries. Her most notable main roles as of recently have been on the short lived series called The Secret Circle and her current role on The Originals. She also had roles in the following films: Tomorrow, When the War Began, Bait 3D, The Ever After and Billionaire Random. In addition to acting, Tonkin has worked as a model and appeared in a number of advertisements for major publications like Elle Australia, Teen Vogue, Girlfriend, Vogue Australia and the apparel company, Free People.
2. Charles Michael Davis
Estimated Net Worth: Unknown. Charles Michael Davis is best known for his role as Marcel Gerard on The Originals. He also played that same role on the original show, The Vampire Diaries, back in 2013. Davis doesn’t have an extensive career; it spans back to his modeling days which is how he got started in the industry. He attended an event hosted by a talent agency and locked in a job modeling for Nike and Footlocker. His career lead him to acting and he hasn’t ventured outside of television…yet! He has worked on the shows Noah’s Arc, That’s So Raven and The Client List. In addition to his main casting on The Originals, he also took on recurring roles on The Game and Grey’s Anatomy. Davis’ estimated net worth is unknown, most likely because he has a small resume. He’s most likely worth around $500 thousand.
1. Joseph Morgan
Estimated Net Worth: $3 million. This English actor stole the show when he came onto The Vampire Diaries as Klaus Mikaelson. His character was so well received (for a villain that is), CW created the spin-off of The Originals and based it around his character. Prior to taking on his iconic villain role he appeared on shows like Hex, The Line of Beauty, Silent Witness, Doc Martin, Casualty and Ben Hur. Morgan has held starring roles in films like Armistice, Open Grave and Angels Crest, as well as small roles in projects like Immortals, The Grind and Mansfield Park. On top of all his acting, Morgan took on directing duties for an episode of The Originals! His hard work and lead role on a popular CW series has paid off because he’s now worth an estimated $3 million.
