Vanessa Lengies was born in Montreal, Quebec on July 21, 1985. She is the daughter of a German father and an Egyptian mother. Vanessa grew up in a small Quebec town called Hudson, where she attended Hudson High School. She graduated in 2002.
There haven’t been any reports as to whether or not she is romantically linked to anyone (2015).
Vanessa began her entertainment career when she was just 10 years old by being cast for both live and voice work in such television shows as “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” “Arthur,” “Lassie,” “Radio Active” and “Caillou.” She also made an appearance in the television movies “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” and “Ratz.”
She received her biggest break when she was cast in the critically acclaimed television drama “American Dreams.” Vanessa was nominated three times for her role as Roxanne Bojarski. Since then, she has appeared in several high-profile motion pictures, like “The Perfect Man,” “Stick It” and “Foreign Exchange,” and television shows, including “CSI: Miami,” “Medium” and “Castle.”
Her biggest success story, however, came when she starred in the hit television series “Glee” from 2011 to 2013 and again in 2015. She was nominated for her role as Sugar Motta. The Canadian actress left the show after explaining she was getting paid per episode and she never really got an opportunity to showcase her thespian acumen.
Vanessa has been seen elsewhere on television by playing a role in shows like “Mixology,” “Resident Advisors” and “Lookinglass.”
Vanessa has co-starred with some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Jeff Bridges, Heather Locklear, Hillary Duff, Jada Pinkett Smith and John Michael Higgins.
We estimate that Vanessa Lengies’s net worth is $7.5 million (2015).
So how much is $7.5 million really?
$7.5 million is immensely more than the median household income of the 5,000 people residing in her hometown of Hudson. Her $7.5 million is also more than some of her “Glee” cast members, including Keith Monteith, Darren Criss and Lea Michele.
$7.5 million can buy you more than 130,000 copies of the complete series of “Glee” on Amazon. $7.5 million can also buy tens of thousands of Vanilla Ice Blend caffeine drinks, which is her favorite drink to consume when she wakes up in the morning.
