Luke Grimes is one of the main stars of Yellowstone. He stars opposite Kevin Costner. Grimes graduated from the Dayton Christian High School in the early 2000s. And he appeared in the 50 Shades of Grey franchise, portraying the brother of the main character. How much is Luke Grimes’s fortune? Let’s take a look. Fans are curious to know how much he earns.
Luke grew up in a religious family. That shaped his acting career and early beliefs. He got his debut in 2006 in the movie All the Boys Love Mandy Lane. From there, he starred in a couple of big movie projects, and some minor ones. And he co-starred in a couple of series.
Let’s take a look at his career path and wealth.
Born in Dayton, Ohio in a religious family, he graduated from Dayton Christian High School in 2002. He is the son of a Pentecostal pastor. In 2002, he moved to New York City to study acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
He got his start in the underrated 2006 movie, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane. In the movie, he portrayed the super-skeezy wanna-be stud Jake. And then he followed that role by appearing in another underrated indie movie, Assassination of a High School President. In that movie, he appeared opposite Bruce Willis and Zoe Kravitz.
Following these two movies, he found success on the small screen. From 2009 to 2010, Grimes had a recurring role on the CBS drama Brothers and Sisters. Just a year after, he appeared in the sequel of Taken, starring opposite Liam Neeson.
In 2013, he got his first big break in the HBO’s drama True Blood. Sadly, his run in the sex-crazed vampire drama lasted for only one season. Some believe he quit the gig because of scheduling conflicts. Others say he didn’t like the direction they took his character.
But he moved on from the True Blood controversy. By that time, he landed a role in the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. He portrayed Eliot Grey, the brother of the main character.
Some of his other notable movie credits include American Sniper and Freeheld. Since 2018, he starred in the Paramount Network drama series, Yellowstone. There, he stars opposite Kevin Costner. But following the end of the third season, we do not know what will happen with his character. It is all up in the clouds.
Luke Grimes appeared in a couple of successful movie franchises and television shows. His big-name credits include Brothers and Sisters, True Blood, Fifty Shades of Grey, and now Yellowstone. We do not know his salary for the projects.
But we know how much the main cast members of Fifty Shades of Grey earned. They made $250,000 for each movie. But with bonuses and box-office takings, they earned up to $1 million per movie. Luke earned a bit less.
And actors in Brothers and Sisters and True Blood earned a nice amount of money as well. Per some sources, actors in True Blood earned between $100,000 and $200,000 per episode.
His latest project is Yellowstone. Again, we do not know his salary. But his partner in the show, Kevin Costner, earns up to $500,000 per episode. Now, Luke is not Kevin Costner. But we can assume he earns a nice amount of money as well.
Per some sources, as of November 2020, Luke Grimes net worth is more than $500,000. And that is without calculating his Yellowstone earnings.
So far, he has appeared in 24 movies or television shows. Luke is a young actor, and he has an even brighter career in front of him.
