Persia White Net Worth $700,000

Persia White was raised in a family with three siblings, initially by her Bahamian father and white mother in the Bahamas, until they moved to Miami, South Florida, when she was only three years old. Persia began to express her acting talents when she was only eight years old, joining the Miami Coconut Grove Children’s Theater. When she was a teenager, she attended dancing, acting and singing classes, and after graduation from high school, she signed a contract with the Ford Agency and moved to LA. Her professional career began in 1993, with a small role in the film “Last Action Hero”.

Through the 1990s, Persia appeared in supporting roles in various TV series, including “The Client” (1995), “NYPD Blue” (1996), “Malibu Shores” (1996), “Saved By The Bell: New Class” (1996), “Parenthood” (1997), and “Sister, Sister”, before she acquired her first noteworthy role, of Aura in the highly popular TV action series “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” (1996-1997). From that point on, Persia’s career and net worth began steadily to improve, and in 1997, she was cast in the TV comedy series “Breaker High” (1997-1998), in which she portrayed Denise Williams in one of the leading roles.

Afterwards, she appeared as the Black Baby in the cult horror film “Black Dolls” (1999) directed by the famous filmmaker Charles Band. In 2000, Persia was featured in the film “Red Letters”, alongside Hollywood stars such as Peter Coyote, which certainly increased her net worth. The same year, Persia earned a lead role in the comedy TV series “Girlfriends” (2000-2008) as Lyn Ann Searcy, showing her skills in all 172 episodes, which became the main source of her net worth through those years.

In 2007, she made an appearance in the film “The Fall Of Night”, but her net worth increased a lot in 2012, when she acquired roles in the films “Dysfunctional Friends” for which she won the Best Actress award, “Black November”, “The Marriage Chronicles”, “No More Games”, and “Mafia”. In 2012, she also assumed the role of Abby Bennett Wilson in the critically acclaimed TV fantasy drama series “The Vampire Diaries”, which also added to her net worth.

To speak further of her career, Persia appeared in the films “Dermaphoria” and “Manifesto” in 2014, and her latest venture in the entertainment industry is the role of Berneice in the film “Cargo”, which is scheduled for a 2016 release.

Persia has also tried herself as a producer, and already has one title under her name, the documentary film “Earthlings” (2011), which also added to her net worth.

Side by side with her career in the film industry, Persia is also known as a musician. Her first self-titled album was released in 2009, produced by herself. She has already collaborated with famous musicians on the American scene, such as Gary Wallis, Jerome Dillon, and Dominique Miller. Persia has written three songs for “Girlfriends”, and is also recognized as a member of the band XEO3. All these have added to her wealth.

Regarding her personal life, Persia White has a daughter named Mecca White, born in 1995, with her ex-boyfriend. She was married to Saul Williams for only one year (2008-09), and in 2014 she married actor Joseph Morgan. Persia is known as an animal rights advocate – she is a vegan – and for her work in this area, she was honored when named 2005 Humanitarian of the Year by PETA.
