The Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise is one of Disney's most popular and successful movie franchises of all time, and it was all based upon a ride from the popular Disneyland theme park. With five movies having been made featuring some of the most incredible sets, detailed storylines and a star-studded cast of actors and actresses, the movie series is one of the greatest of all time.
While not every film is as good as each other, the franchise has always thrived at the box office, and a large part of that is down to the brilliant work of the actors. Within this article, we will rank them in terms of their net worth.
10 Kevin McNally (Net Worth: $1 Million)
Even though the focus of the movies is on the major characters who get all of the screen time and lead the wars, that doesn't mean the supporting cast isn't just as good, as proven by Joshamee Gibbs. Kevin McNally does an incredible job in his role as Captain Jack Sparrow's loyal right-hand man Mr. Gibbs, who has also become one of the most popular characters in the franchise.
Gibbs often provides a lot of comedic relief, which is never a bad thing in a family-friendly movie. This role helped McNally gain a net worth of $1 million.
9 Mackenzie Crook (Net Worth: $4 Million)
Speaking of comic relief, Mackenzie Crook's character is specifically put into the movies with that as the sole purpose. His character, Ragetti, arguably provided the biggest laughs in the entire franchise.
Ragetti isn't particularly brave or skilled in the art of combat, but he gets plenty of chances in to show off his comedic chops, especially when it comes to the running gag involving his missing eye. Crook was perfect casting for this role, with the comedy actor being well known for this sort of work. He is best known for his work on The Office, which helped him establish a net worth of $4 million.
8 Jack Davenport (Net Worth: $4 Million)
While Pirates Of The Caribbean is obviously fully focused on the pirates of the world, it also focuses on the Royal Navy's hard work to try and rid the world of them entirely, which is led by James Norrington. As well as hoping to marry Elizabeth Swan, Norrington desperately attempts to capture Jack Sparrow in what becomes an incredible game of cat and mouse that spans of several movies.
As well as being one of the main villains of the Pirates franchise, he has appeared in countless other movies such as The Boat That Rocked, The Talented Mr. Ripley, and Macbeth to earn a net worth of $4 million.
7 Jonathan Pryce
Speaking of characters who worked on land rather than sea, the veteran actor Jonathan Pryce portrayed the role of Weatherby Swann, the Governor of Jamaica in the movies. Despite his power, Swann had quite a rough ride in the films, being knocked down to reality as he desperately worked to save his daughter. He eventually realized that she was happiest at sea, albeit a little too late.
However, despite his significant role in the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, it is his work in another popular franchise that people will know Pryce from. Specifically, his work in Game Of Thrones as the High Priest helped grow his net worth of $5 million.
6 Bill Nighy (Net Worth: $8 Million)
One of the best characters in the entire franchise is first seen in Pirates Of The Caribbean Dead Mans Chest, with the famous Davy Jones being realized by Disney in the most spectacular fashion. While the character showcases some unbelievable CGI in order to make him look as scary as possible, it is the fantastic performance of Bill Nighy that actually brought everything to life.
From the way he pronounced his words to his confident stride, Nighy brought life into the character that could so easily have just become a CGI mess, proving why he is well worth his net worth of $8 million.
5 Orlando Bloom (Net Worth: $35 Million)
Orlando Bloom portrays William Turner in Pirates Of The Caribbean, who is arguably the franchises perfect hero, doing anything to rescue his one true love, while remaining strong in the fight, sacrificing himself when needed to, becoming a very popular character. The fact that a role as big as William Turner isn't even the biggest performance of his career says everything about Orlando Bloom's incredible career, with his turn as Legolas in The Lord of the Rings trilogy being what he is best known for.
Having been part of two huge movie franchises, it is no surprise that Bloom has managed to grow a net worth of $35 million. With his current relationship with Katy Perry, they are set to become a huge power couple.
4 Stellan Skarsgård (Net Worth: $40 Million)
Stellan Skarsgård is one of the most famous actors from Scandanavia and comes from a family all connected to the industry, so it isn't a surprise he has worked towards a net worth of $40 million in his career.

3 Geoffrey Rush (Net Worth: $40 Million)
Geoffrey Rush was the main villain within the original Pirates Of The Caribbean, and few would have expected him to go on to play such a major part in the franchise moving forward from that.
