John Rhys-Davies tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2012 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (October 30) that Rhys-Davies is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between October 2013 and October 2014, a nearly $40 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The Welsh actor has an estimated net worth of $215 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Rhys-Davies Burger” chain) in Cardiff, a Football Team (the “Rhydaman Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderhys-Davies - Wales), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from John) and a fashion line called “John Rhys-Davies Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many John fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
