Analysis of Her Net Worth and All The Ways She Makes Her Money
Case’s Primary Source of Income Is Acting
Clearly, the major way that Sharon Case has been getting rich and keeping her wealth afloat has been acting. With over three decades and counting in the industry, Case has sure done well for herself. Her highest-paying gig is no doubt that of Sharon Newman on the CBS daytime soap opera The Young and the Restless. Though the exact details of her paycheck over the years have not been made public, the fact that she has held on to the gig for the most part of her career speaks volumes about what she is earning from it.
Research shows that the average earning for a soap opera actress is $57,000, however, Case’s numbers are bound to be way higher than this due to her commitment to one gig. As with TV series stars, the longer one remains on a particular series, the more they are likely to earn more as they renegotiate their contracts occasionally with a higher pay with each contract renewal.
Records from research say that soap opera actresses with over 10 years of being part of a show can earn between $2000 – $5000 per episode and Case falls into this category. That said, it is clear to see how the longest-running gig of her career is the highest contributor to her wealth. While Case does make money from other gigs, those paychecks would dwarf in comparison to what she mints playing Sharon Newman.
The actress also earns from a business venture
Case, like most actresses of her caliber, has found a way to diversify her income outside acting. She owns a signature line of fashion jewellery called POMP. The line was launched in January 2010 with her best friend Elif Inanc who is also a fashion stylist. The jewellery line, which she described as affordable, fashionable, and fun has a price range of $20 to $40.
Proceeds from Sharon Case’s acting and jewelry line combine to give her an estimated net worth of $3 million.
