Billy Zane Net Worth is $20 Million (as of 2020)
As for the day, Billy Zane net worth amounts to $20 millions. This is way less than some of the highest paid Hollywood actors have, but still – we have to admit that $20 million is a hell of impressive sum. So naturally, we can raise the question: where all this money is coming from?

And of course, it comes from movies… You may not remember this, but Billy was already on screens back in 1985. That year he appeared on a well known American comic science fiction film Back to the Future (later he has featured on the sequel too). The movie was incredibly financially successful, grossing over $380 million with a budget of $19 million. In this movie Zane has played only a supporting role, thus its commercial success did not significantly increase his fortune. However, this was a great place to start. Billy Zane net worth growth gained momentum in the late 1980s, when he landed one of the leading roles in Dead Calm. In this thriller film he has appeared alongside such stars as Nicole Kidman and Sam Neill. Even though the Box-Office returns of this film were modest, the role in this movie set is future career on the path to success.
After gaining critical acclaim for the performance on Dead Calm, Billy has appeared on the widest range of movies, including Femme Fatale, Lake Consequence, Sniper, The Silence of the Hams, Head Above Water, I Woke Up Early the Day I Died, Landspeed, Scilent Warnings, The Pleasure Drivers, Valley of the Wolves: Iraq, The Man Who Came Back, Love N’ Dancing, Evil – In the Time of Heroes, Sniper: Reloaded, The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption, Electrick Children and Dark Star Hollow. His latest role was in psychological thriller Scorned. Unfortunately for him, the movie did not make a significant contribution to Billy Zane net worth and received negative critical reviews. It was described as “Neither scary nor funny enough to entertain, this one is dead on arrival.“ or “light on thrills and even lighter on sex”. Patrick Cooper wrote that “It seems like Scorned is grasping to be an edgy revenge flick, but its delivery simply falls flat.”
The thing is, all of Billy’s most famous movies, including Dead Calm (1989), The Phantom (1996), Titanic (1997) and CQ (2001), has reached the cinemas more than a decade ago. So far the actor keeps his financial ship afloat by performing a few rather insignificant roles every year, but I don’t think he can go like this for long. Billy needs something to revive his career and if this won’t happen, his star will eventually fade away. The decrease in Billy Zane net worth will unavoidably fallow…
