When it comes to period dramas on television, there's nothing quite like Outlander. Because we were lucky enough to be blessed with a time-traveling heroine, the show has already taken us through 17th century Scotland, France, as well as 20th century England. This means, of course, beautiful scenery and some over the top costumes.
But the best part of the show isn't the dresses or the breathtaking landscapes. What made audiences all over the world fall quickly in love with Outlander was the beautiful love story between star and time-crossed lovers, Jamie and Claire. The show has become so popular it's already been renewed for seasons five and six. But while we wait for the fifth season to finally make its way to our screens, let's take a look at the net worth of the cast that makes all these wonderful stories come to life on television.
10 Stephen Walters - $100,000 To $1 Million
Stephen Walters gave life to one of the most lovable and heart-warming characters of the entire show. His interpretation of the servant and bodyguard Angus struck a chord with audiences. Plus, anyone who is a friend to Claire is a friend to us.
Walters was acting long before Outlander came around. In fact, he began building his career back in 1989, with some very impressive credits to his name. These include Kiss Kiss (Bang Bang), Age of Heroes, The Plague, and Into The Badlands. There are no signs Stephen is going to stop acting, and so far so good, as his estimated net worth is between $100,000 and $1 million.
9 César Domboy - $1 Million
Before snatching the role of grown-up Fergus, France-born actor César Domboy already had quite a few acting credits under his belt. He began his career back in 2004, when he was only fourteen-years-old, in the movie Just Trust, and he hasn't stopped working since.
Other projects he worked on include Daddy Cool, Princess Montpensier, Les lendemains, Borgia, and The Walk. He's also set to star in the upcoming movie Jesus and The Others. Everything points to a bright future for Domboy, especially since he already has a net worth of $1 million. Not bad at all!
8 Tobias Menzies - $1.2 Million
Menzies had the opportunity to play two very distinct characters in the show Outlander. None of them were particularly loved by the fans, although Frank Randall will always be ten times the man his vicious and evil ancestor, Black Jack Randall, ever was. Tobias has already departed the series, but that doesn't mean his career will slow down.
Even before he was part of the cast of Outlander, Menzies was no stranger to the public. He played Edmure Tully in the hit show Game of Thrones and he currently stars in yet another beloved period drama, The Crown. Such an impressive resumé could only result in an impressive net worth: in this case, $1.2 million.
7 Richard Rankin - $1.2 Million
Rankin is one of the most recent additions to the show, and his character, Roger Wakefield, is quite polarising among fans. His feelings and actions towards the Fraser child, Brianna, are often questionable, and many people who love the show are still trying to make up their minds about Roger.
Richard Rankin, however, is no stranger to the world of acting. With two dozen credits to his name, he's been featured as a recurring character in a number of television shows, including Burnistoun, The Crimson Field, The Syndicate, and The Last Kingdom. In the end, hard work pays off, and Rakin's net worth is proof, clocking in at $1.2 million.
6 Lotte Verbeek - $3 Million
Even though she wasn't featured in too many episodes, Lotte Verbeek made her time on the show last. Her memorable portrayals of Geillis Duncan and Mrs. Abernathy are remembered quite vividly by every Outlander fan out there. And not just any actress could pull this off, which speaks volumes of Verbeek's abilities.
The Dutch actress began acting in 2007 and was featured in a handful of very successful projects. Outside of Outlander, she acted in two other period dramas that were both critically acclaimed and loved by audiences: Agent Carter and The Borgias. She has five more movies coming out soon, and her winning streak shows in the numbers. More precisely, in her net worth of $3 million.
5 Duncan Lacroix - $3 Million
Throughout the entire run of Outlander, few characters were as loved as Duncan Lacroix's Murtagh Fraser. He has a heart of gold, the soul of a poet, and a tongue that would make even the sassiest sailor blush. Fans everywhere cheered when it was revealed the showrunners had decided to bring him back, despite his death in the books.
Curiously enough, Lacroix gave up his desk job in order to pursue his dream of acting. With an uncredited role in Game of Thrones, he quickly rose in the acting hierarchy with a feature in Vikings, his role in Outlander, plus a couple of movies up his sleeve. Quitting was probably a good decision, considering he has a net worth of $3 million!
4 John Bell - $4 Million
John Bell was lucky enough to kick-start his career with a small role in an episode of fan-favorite show Doctor Who in 2007. But this feature was only the beginning for what has become a pretty successful career for such a young actor.
Bell is now twenty-one years old, and he can already brag about the fact that he had roles in projects such as The Life of Riley, Battlefield, two The Hobbit movies, and T2 Trainspotting. Aside from his role as Ian in Outlander, John Bell has also had a recurring role in the television series Into The Badlands. The sky is the limit for the young professional, and he has a net worth of $4 million.
3 Graham McTavish - $4 Million
If Richard's character is polarising, then what can we possibly say about Jamie's uncle, Dougal MacKenzie? His untimely death undoubtedly hurt the show, considering how strong of a presence Duncan Lacroix has on screen. Plus, his storylines were always compelling, leaving audiences unsure what to think of him.
Lacroix is a true veteran of the acting industry, with over a hundred acting credits to his name, including movies, television shows, and voiceovers. He's an easily recognisable face thanks to all the features he had over the years. Plus, with three more movies coming out in the next few years, it's safe to assume he's more than earned his $4 million net worth.
2 Caitriona Balfe - $4 Million
Half of one of the world's most beloved couple, Caitriona Balfe had a curious start to her career. She first gained international recognition not as an actress, but as a fashion model. Caitriona was only nineteen years-old when she was scouted at a mall, and worked for brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, DKNY, Burberry, Dior, Louis Vuitton, H&M, Marc Jacobs, Valentino, and many more.
In 2011, she took her beauty and talent somewhere else, and thus her acting career began. Her most impressive role to date is still Outlander, but fans can't wait to see what Balfe is thinking about doing next. Overall, her career as actress and model granted her a spectacular net worth of $4 million.
1 Sam Heughan - $5 Million
Last but definitely not least is Sam Heughan, the Scotland-born actor who's been breaking hearts all over the world since Outlander first premiered back in 2014. While his first acting credit dates back to 2001, it wasn't until 2004 that Heughan's career began to take off with a role in the mini-series Island At War.
Much like his co-star Caitriona, it was his role as Jamie Fraser in Outlander that finally shot Sam to stardom. Since 2014, he's been featured in movies such as The Spy Who Dumped Me, When The Starlight Ends, and Emulsion. He has two other movies coming out, and once you put everything together, you get a nice little package of $5 million.
