How Much is Jason Priestley Worth?
“Are you Brandon girl or Dylan girl?” This question was, probably, the most popular among teen girls in early 1990s. Jason Priestley tried a lot to create the screen image of Brandon Walsh in “Beverly Hills 90210” and it gave him back. He has become popular and rich. The star has saved $12 million net worth. Although the stellar role of Brandon used to be the main source of Jason’s wealth, he was busy with other projects too.
Aside the cult series, Priestley moved his way to the big screen and participated in a number of hit films. “Love and Death on Long Island”, “Dark Side” and “Going the Distance” are among them. By the way, Jason Priestley’s after Beverly Hills acting career looks more successful than that one of his co-stars Jennie Garth and Shannen Doherty, who could boast with big screen roles.
He tried to make career of a car racer, but a number of serious injures convinced Priestley, that acting is much more suitable for him.
While his time in “Beverly Hills” the star occupied the director’s seat for a while. By the way, it was he, who directed the most popular episode of the series, when Donna Martin (Tory Spelling) loses her virginity with David Silver (Brian Austin Green).
The work in entertaining industry is not the only source of Jason’s wealth. In 1999 Priestley tried his hand as a businessman and investor. He spent the part of his net worth for construction of a hotel “Terrace Beach Resort Ucluelet” in Canada. Each year the resort place, situated not far from the beach, is full of visitors, who practice surfing or kayaking. No need to say, that it brings its owner Priestley a solid income.
To satisfy his fans’ curiosity (and to fill his pockets with cash again), Priestley released his biography “Jason Priestley: A Memoir”, where he shared behind-the-scene secrets of “Beverly-Hills”, told about the relationship with his co-stars and opened up about living with Brad Pitt (two actors were roommates). The book is sold like hot pies and it brings Jason constant passive income.
