The Net Worth of Cree Cicchino
As of mid-2020, Cree Cicchino’s net worth is estimated to be over $500,000, earned through a successful career in acting. Most of her wealth has come from her work in “Game Shakers”, though she expects to gain more work as a result of that success, hopefully building her wealth even further in the process.
Early Life and Entertainment Beginnings
Cree grew up in a family which inclined towards the performing arts, with her father previously working as an actor. She early showed a love for all things performance, including dancing and singing. She began taking dancing lessons as a child, leaning more towards the jazz and hip hop styles. She wanted to be a professional dancer at this age, but also to sing on stage. Her parents obliged, and helped her get singing lessons as she wanted to become big, like Rihanna!
For some time, she uploaded some of her dance videos onto YouTube with the help of her parents, though they were later taken down after she began taking professional acting roles.
Acting was introduced to her by her mother, who wanted to develop her performance skills further by enrolling her in a comedy sketch group. During her time there, she became more interested in pursuing acting roles, and her parents supported her when she began auditioning as a teenager.
In 2015, Cicchino was cast in the Nickelodeon series “Game Shakers”, establishing herself to a mainstream audience by becoming a part of one of the most well-known children and teenager programming networks in the US. She played the role of Babe Carano in the show, one of the lead characters alongside Madisyn Shipman’s Kenzie Bell.
The two seventh-graders attend the same school in New York, and with each other’s help, they create a video game app intended as a science project for school. However, they didn’t expect that the app would be more popular than it was meant to be.
The app helped them become 12-year-old successes, and they formed the company, Game Shakers. Later on, more people joined their company, including their friend Hudson and the rapper Double G, who invests in their company following the kids’ illegal use of his music. Their fourth and final member is Double G’s son Triple G; other recurring characters in the show are played by the likes of Tanner Buchanan and Todd Bosley.
The show was initially set to only run for a season, but due to its success, it continued to be renewed and ran for three seasons across four years before it was canceled.
Recent Projects – Mr. Iglesias
Following her work in “Game Shakers”, a lot of Cree’s fans thought that she would stay with Nickelodeon and work on other shows for them, but she intended to pursue other projects. In 2019, she was cast as a series regular in the Netflix show “Mr. Iglesias”, which stars Gabriel Iglesias who is also an executive producer of the show.
The series follows the titular teacher at his high school alma mater, tasked with handling a group of misfits with potential, hoping to help them unlock their capabilities, while also keeping them from the Assistant Principal who often bullies them. Other stars of the show include Richard Gant, Sherri Shepherd and Jacob Vargas.
The show aired for 10 episodes during its debut season and was successful, leading to Netflix renewing it for a second season consisting of 12 episodes, which will have Tucker Albrizzi promoted from a recurring character to a series regular. Throughout its run, the show has gained positive reviews from both critics and viewers.
Cree has recently been doing a lot of promotion for the show’s second season, as the cast can’t travel due to quarantine restrictions in the US.
Due to restrictions in many parts of the world following the spread of COVID-19, Cicchino has been spending most days at home with a lot of productions, press work, and filming being halted to help protect many people. She’s been mostly staying active by promoting her projects online, or communicating with fans. She also uses her online platforms to promote several advocacies. She has supported numerous organizations in the US that help promote the awareness of allergies, and special treatment required by people suffering from them.
She’s also recently spoken out regarding the death of George Floyd, who perished at the hands of police officers, leading to protests and riots across the US. This amid the coronavirus problem has put the country inTO a lot of unrest. She has been against racial inequality, and for proper justice. She’s also been thankful that she has a home to stay in and be secure with all the trouble going around the country. She revealed that she is partly of African-American descent through her mother, in an online post showcasing her mother in her younger years.
Cree is single and there have been no reports of any romantic relationships in her past or present.
Some rumors once spread about her being in a relationship with actor Thomas Kuc, as the two appeared close for some time, sharing photos and videos online. A lot of people also thought that she was engaged to her best friend, after posting photos of an engagement proposal while at Disneyland – this was actually part of a joke to fool people in the theme park. However, she later iterated that she is single. She is still young and likely focused on developing her acting career.
She also has a twin sister though the two don’t often appear in each other’s social media. Growing up, she had to sit at a special table in school as she developed allergies to numerous foods, including tree nuts, eggs, dairy, mustard, peanuts, soy, and shellfish.
