How Much Is Tim Roth Worth Since He Started Tin Star?

Tim Roth’s net worth has greatly appreciated since he joined the cast of the Sky Atlantic series, Tin Star. He plays the role of an alcoholic British cop, Jim Worth, living in Canada. Although details of his earnings before he undertook the project are vague, Roth takes home $275,000 per episode in the series. Read on to find out how much the British actor, producer, and director is really worth.

How Much Is Tim Roth Net Worth Since He Started Tin Star?

Tin Star is one of the latest TV projects Tim Roth has under his belts. He is known for his work on British TV in the 1980s and on the American scene with the Fox series, Lie To Me from 2009 to 2011. Thus, when Tin Star came up in 2017, a time when he wasn’t really looking for a TV series, he wasn’t very eager to take it up. Thank goodness he did; there couldn’t have been a better man for the job than him. He also starred on the BBC show, Rillington Place, a miniseries about famed British serial killer – John Christie.

Tin Star is a British-Canadian thriller about an expat cop, Jim Worth played by Roth living in Canada. He also played Jim’s alter ego, Jack Devin. It was created by Rowan Joffe and also stars Genevieve O’Reilly and Christina Hendricks. The series premiered on the 7th of September 2017 on Sky Atlantic and plays on Amazon outside the U.K. The second season hit the screens in January 2019 while the third and final season is set to premiere in 2020.

The series started as a quirky fish-out-of-water drama and takes several sharp right turns into violence, madness, and mayhem with Roth at the center of it all. Rowan Joffe’s creative imagination and Roth standout performance have placed Tin Star firmly in the hearts of fans and critics as well. Its success has also added a large chunk to Tim Roth’s net worth.

The actor earns $275,000 per episode on the series and has an estimated net worth of $7 million. His net worth would certainly appreciate with the series going into its third season. Season 3 will see the Worth family return to the U.K. and will be set in and around Liverpool, England.

His Career Before Tin Star

There is hardly any role that you can mention that Tim Roth hasn’t played. From skinheads to hitmen, criminals, cops, princes, junkies, politicians, supervillains, executioners, cops-posing-as-criminals, an 18th-century fop, a 19th-century impressionist painter, and a 21st-century psychotic chimp, he has done it all.

And to think that acting wasn’t his original idea of a career. As a young man, he wanted to be a sculptor. Tim Roth enrolled in Camberwell College of Arts, London where he studied sculpture and painting. However, during his studies, he was doing theatre in pubs and was content with his reputation in the dodgy actor crowd. Everything, however, changed when he saw the 1979 film, Scum about teens in the juvenile prison system in England.

The movie was directed by Alan Clarke. Ray Winstone, who played the lead role, pulled off such a dynamic performance that gave teenaged Tim Roth a whole different perspective about acting. Roth wanted more and went after it, leaving sculpting behind.

He sought out the film’s director who went on to direct him in his acting debut, Made in Britain in 1982. He played the role of an angry teenaged white supremacist skinhead, Trevor, exuding the same energy he saw in Ray in Scum. His performance attracted a lot of controversies and made him a hero to certain boots-and-braces subcultures. Roth went from a relatively unknown theater actor to a guy showing up on TV and was considered part of the Brit Pack (young English actors who have achieved success in Hollywood) in the 1980s. His career only picked off from there, and he has acted both on the small and big screens, mostly in crime dramas.

Some of Tim Roth’s best works include Twin Peaks: The Return, Pulp Fiction, Planet of the Apes, Rob Roy, The Incredible Hulk, Reservoir Dogs, Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight, Selma, The Hit, and Gridlock’d co-starring Tupac Shakur. He made his directorial debut in 1999 with the family drama, The War Zone which earned him many accolades.

His films have earned a worldwide aggregate of over $1.3 billion at the box office based on 50 films. Roth’s highest earners include The Incredible Hulk which grossed over $263 million, and Planet of the Apes with $362.2 million, among others.
