What Is Billy Porter’s Net Worth?


Award-winning Broadway actor and renowned vocalist Billy Porter has a prestigious career on stage and on the screen. Most recently, the Hollywood Walk of Fame inductee starred as the genderless fairy godparent Fab G in the Amazon Prime live-action remake of the fairy tale “Cinderella.”

Porter, who is married to business owner Adam Smith, has a net worth of $4 million, reports. However, that number may quickly rise following his performance in “Cinderella” — the star-studded cast of the full-length feature film released straight to Prime also includes the vocal and acting talents of Camila Cabello as the titular character, Idina Menzel, Minnie Driver, James Corden and Pierce Brosnan.

Stage and Screen Appearances

Prior to making an entrance and making magic on Prime, Porter won an Emmy for “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series” for his performance as Pray Tell on FX’s “Pose.”

Although not many details can be found on Porter’s income for his many TV appearances, he boasts an impressive resume that includes appearances on series including “Gossip Girl,” “Middlemost Post,” “American Horror Story,” “Law & Order,” “The Damn Michael Che” and as a narrator on the documentary series “Equal.” He has also appeared in many films, including “Twist,” “Anastasia,” and “Intern.”

But Porter is perhaps best known for his stage work, including his role in “Kinky Boots,” for which he won a Tony. He has also starred in Broadway favorites like “Miss Saigon,” “Grease,” “The Merchant of Venice,” “Jesus Chris Superstar” and “Little Shop of Horrors,” a show he will revisit on the big screen as he plays the voice of Audrey II in the upcoming film, now in preproduction, according to IMDb.
