This appearance for the popular lifestyle magazine birthed a slew of roles on popular TV shows for the German-American actress, notable among them are F.R.I.E.N.D.S, NCIS, California Dreams, Beverly Hills 90210 and many more.
You might know her as Brittney Powell but the actress used to go by the name Brittney Rache in the early 1990s. Her natural great looks and charisma can take most of the credit for the success she has met so far in her career. Born on March 4, 1972, in Würzburg, Germany, Brittney officially launched her entertainment career in 1991 and has since remained one of the highly sought after stars, especially on the small screen.
Brittney Powell made her debut in Playboy: Girls of Spring Break in 1991 and proceeded to compete on Round Trip to Heaven. Her Playboy appearance opened the right doors for the actress and soon, roles started coming her way. She has starred in more than 30 different TV series including but not limited to Harry and the Hendersons, California Dreams, Pacific Palisades, The Commish, Silk Stalkings, Titans, Tarzan: The Epic Adventures, The Sentinel, Xena: Warrior Princess and Safety Geeks: SVI. She played a contract role on General Hospital in 2002, Powell joined the cast of the long-running show as Summer Halloway.
She is also building her film career to greater heights with projects like Airborne, Renegade, The Unborn II, That Thing You Do! and To Be the Best under her belt. Her biggest role since she started acting is arguably the one she played in Trouble is My Business, appearing opposite Vernon Wells; she also contributed to the writing of the script. The film was met with critical acclaim while getting all the attention from the right platforms.
Soon, her recent projects will be out and I May Regret and Aaah! Roach! are some of the ones to look out for. She got the leading role in the former.
Modelling is also part of her flourishing career. In view of this, she plied her trade for the Safety Geeks’ Safety Pin-Up Calendars in 2010, 2011, and 2012 respectively.
Brittney has been building her career since 1991, appearing in over 50 TV shows and films. Notably, most of her appearances can be found in minor roles and her salary cannot be confirmed at the moment. Trouble is My Business is her biggest project so far; she gained critical acclaim and commercial success for playing the lead role, as well as writing the script. The 2013 film was shown much love at film festivals and won many awards in that regard.
Notwithstanding, her net worth has been estimated to be in the league of $700,000. Apparently, she is yet to join the Hollywood millionaires though that might not be a long time coming.
Partner (Verne Troyer), Kids
Although the actress is known to have been married to one man, rumours have it that she was first married to Kevin O’Bannon, a claim that seems to hold no water as the parties involved have never confirmed it. The speculations also suggested that Powell and O’Bannon went through a divorce to officially end their union but this has not been ascertained also. Nonetheless, the two share a son named Tyson O’Bannon.
Aside from the rumoured affair she had with Kevin O’Bannon, Brittney Powell was publicly involved with Verne Troyer. Their romance went public in 2007 and they remained partners until Troyer died in April 2018. The two lived together like a family, complete with her son.
Troyer was an American actor, comedian, stunt performer and one of the shortest men to walk the earth – at 2 ft 8 in (81 cm) in height. His miniature stature is as a result of a genetic disorder called cartilage-hair hypoplasia. He is mostly remembered for appearing as Mini-Me in the Austin Powers film series. He was allegedly married to model Genevieve Gallen but they went their separate ways after a day. He was 49 at the time of his death on April 21, 2018. After a severe investigation, the coroner ruled his death as a suicide. He also had an alarming amount of alcohol in his system at the time of his death.
Brittney Powell’s Height
At 5ft 7in, Powell may not be the atypical tall lady but she definitely towers above her late partner Troyer who only managed a few inches above 2ft. Her body weight is recorded as 122 lbs (54 kg) which means she in great shape.
