Owain Yeoman 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 Friday (October 24) that Yeoman is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between September 2013 and September 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 Scottish 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 Yeoman Burger” chain) in Edinburgh, a Football Team (the “Chepstow Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderyeoman - Scotland), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Owain) and a fashion line called “Owain Yeoman Seduction”.

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