The Net Worth of Jack Turner
As of early-2020, Jack Turner’s net worth is estimated to be over $250,000, earned through a successful career in acting. While he has yet to break through as a mainstream star, his consistent work has helped him build his wealth. Aside from acting, he’s also been involved in music and video game projects.
Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings
At a young age, Jack didn’t intend on pursuing a career as an actor, initially looking more towards music, and was heavily invested in finding success as a part of a band. Growing up, he took lessons on keyboards and the guitars, learning as much as he could about stringed instruments. Eventually, he joined a band called Cable Car, but which didn’t have a lot of success, though they were able to record and release a few music videos on YouTube. It even reached a point where the band created a website, but it was eventually discontinued.
Jack then focused more towards his education, and after matriculating from high school, he enrolled at the University of Oxford where he took up a degree in Neuro Psychology, with a focus on Experimental Psychology. He completed his education and then moved to the US in search of better working opportunities. He settled in San Francisco where he worked for the technology giant Google, better known for its popular search engine and its ownership of the website, YouTube.
Transition to Acting
Turner worked for Google for over five years, and at the time was looking for a hobby to engage in, as music no longer seemed a prospect.
He began taking acting lessons, and soon became more involved in the craft, envisioning himself as a professional actor. He later left his job and moved to Los Angeles, where there were more opportunities in Hollywood. His initial auditions were successful, and as a result he began by working on several commercials.
He also had support roles in film and television projects, before getting his first lead role in 2014’s “The 10 Year Plan”, which tells the story of two men who are best friends but are total opposites in terms of personality. They challenge each other to look for the right person for them, and make a deal to be together if they don’t ever find a relationship that works.
Nearing the end of their deadline, they then do whatever it takes to find Mr. Right. The film didn’t receive much attention mainly due to a lack of marketing and its use of common themes within romance comedy films.
Continued Acting Projects
After this appearance, Jack was cast in the television series “Stitchers” as a minor character, appearing regularly though not having as much credit as other actors. The show aired on Freeform, and followed the story of a woman who is assigned to be a Stitcher for a government agency. These people have the memories of the dead put into their memory, so that they could try to help criminal cases that would otherwise remain unsolved.
The show ran for three seasons before an announcement was made that it was canceled.
Afterward, he made a guest appearance in the television show “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”, a spin-off from CW shows “The Flash” and “Arrow” sharing in the same continuity of these shows. The show features several heroes and villains recruited by a time-traveling agent to help defeat villains from across the timeline. The show has been running for five seasons and stars Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, and Dominic Purcell. Afterward, he got work with the television channel Lifetime, becoming a part of their original movie “Fatherly Obsession”, which tells the story of a woman who is being stalked by an obsessive landlord who thinks of her as his estranged daughter.
