Name: Lea Michele Sarfati
Born: 29 August 1986
Occupation: American Actress and Singer
Lea Michele was born an only child in The Bronx, New York, but grew up in New Jersey. Lea was eight years old when her career got off to an impressive start. She went to a casting call with a friend and decided to audition on the spot and won the role. She was on Broadway two weeks later. Being an only child, her mother was able to take her on many auditions and spend a lot of time with her. At one point her mother homeschooled her so that she could work full time in Toronto.
After many years on Broadway as a young lady, Lea decided it was time to venture out and look for other opportunities. In 2009 she was given the role of Rachel Berry, the star singer in the television series Glee where one of her co-stars Dianna Agron has a role.
Lea Michele has been nominated for numerous awards and received many including a Grammy for Best Musical Show Album with an Original Broadway Cast and a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series (Comedy or Musical). Several songs she has covered have reached high on the charts, and to date she has more hits from the Glee cast than any of her fellow actors. Between her shows on Broadway, her singing and acting, we estimate Lea Michele’s net worth to be $2.5 million (GBP $1.5 million).
So how much is $2.5 million really?
If Lea Michele wanted to take a flight to Sydney, she certainly could. She could fly round-trip to Australia 1,500 times. Or for that matter, she could fly 11,245,500 miles or the equivalent of 452 times around the Earth.
If she wanted to stay in the States to travel, she could drive a Ford Focus from Los Angeles to New York and back 3,570 times. That’s not including the price of the car, just the gas.
But if you’re feeling a bit jealous of her, know that if she was looking to go in style, she could only fly on a private jet to Sydney and back 14 times… or from Los Angeles to New York 26 times.
