Brent Spiner was raised in a Jewish family by his parents Jack and Sylvia Spiner. He went to Bellaire High School in Bellaire, Texas, and after he matriculated in 1968, enrolled at the University of Houston in Houston, Texas, from which he earned a degree in 1974. While he was in college, Brent became active in local theatre.
Brent`s career began in the 1970s, launching his career as a stage actor, as he participated in several Broadway and off-Broadway productions, including “Sunday In The Park With George”, and “The Three Musketeers”. After that he moved to California, started auditioning for on-screen roles, and in 1984 he earned his first role in the TV series “The Paper Chase”, which was followed by appearances in such productions as “Tales from the Darkside”, and “One Life To Live” in the same year.

Before the end of the 1980s, he appeared in such TV series and films as “Crime of Innocence” (1985), with Andy Griffith in the lead role and Diane Ladd, “Mama’s Family” (1986-1987), “Night Court” (1985-1987), and in 1987 he was selected for the role of Lieutenant Commander Data in the TV series “Star Trek: The Next Generation” (1987-1994), which was his first notable role, and it certainly increased his net worth by a large margin.
He repeated his role in several Star Trek sequels, including “Star Trek: Generations” (1994), “Star Trek: First Contact” (1996), “Star Trek: Nemesis” (2002), with other stars of the show, including Patrick Stewart and Jonathan Frakes.

Brent`s career reached a whole new level, as he managed to secure roles in such high profile films as “Corrina, Corrina” (1994), with Ray Liotta and Whoopi Goldberg in lead roles, “Independence Day” (1996), alongside Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum, and “Phenomenon” (1996), with John Travolta and Forest Whitaker as stars of the film.
He continued to line up success after success in the 2000s, securing roles in such productions as “Jack” (2004), “Threshold” (2005-2006) and “Superhero Movie” (2008), which steadily increased his net worth.

To speak further of his accomplishments in the entertainment industry, in 2011 he featured in the TV series “Fresh Hell” (2011-2012), as himself, and in 2012 he was selected for the role of Brother Adrian in the TV series “Warehouse 13” (2012-2013). His latest appearances include roles in such films and TV series as “The Midnight Man” (2016), and “Independence Day: Resurgence”, which is scheduled for release on the 24th June 2016.

Most recently, he has also started a voice acting career, landing his voice to characters in such productions as “Generator Rex” (2010-2013), “Star Wars Rebels” (2014-2015), and “Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.” (2014), among others, all of which have added to Brent`s net worth.
Brent is also recognized as a musician, releasing an album “Ol’ Yellow Eyes Is Back” in 1991, which consisted of covers of pop hits from the 1930s and 1940s American music scene. The album also added to his net worth, as it became quite popular in Europe.

Thanks to his talents, Brent has received several nominations, and awards, including the Saturn Award in the category of Best Supporting Actor, for his work on “Star Trek: First Contact”, among many others.
Regarding his personal life, Brent Spiner is married to producer Loree McBride, with whom he has a son; their current residence is in Malibu, California.

1Lieutenant Commander Data on Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987)
Star Trek: Insurrection (1998)$5,000,000
1[September 12, 2006] I don't think I should play Data anymore. I think I'm too old to play him anymore to be honest. I think it would look stupid putting that make-up on me at this point. There certain characters that I think work in a youthful way and I think I really skated along the edge in the last couple movies as it was.
2[on his Lt. Commander Data action figure] At first, I was reluctant. But then I figured, if it's good enough for Alec Guinness, then it's good enough for me.
