Peter Stormare Net Worth $5 Million

Peter grew up in Sweden, in the town of Arbra. He decided to change his last name to Stormare, which in English means “stormer”, after he found out that he shares the same surname with a student of an acting academy he attended. Before Peter ventured into on-screen acting, he spent eleven years in the Royal Dramatic Theatre. After that he became an Associate Artistic Director at the Tokyo Globe Theatre, where he played mostly in productions of Shakespearian plays, such as Hamlet, among others.

His career in front of the cameras began in the late 1970s, with small roles in Swedish films, but his career started to take a turn for the better at the beginning of the 1990s, with roles in such films as “Awakenings” (1990), “Damage” (1992), and Le Polygraphe” (1996). 1996 was his breakout year, when he was selected for the role of Gaear Grimsurd in the film “Fargo”, which featured William H. Macy and Steve Buscemi in lead roles. This role celebrated him as an actor, and launched him further into the Hollywood scene. During the 1990s, he appeared in “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” as Dieter Stark, and also had notable roles in “Playing God” (1997), and “Commander Hamilton” in 1998, “Armageddon” and “8mm”, among other popular films, which only increased his net worth by a large margin.

Peter continued successfully in the early 2000s, being selected for roles in the films “Dancer In The Dark” (2000), “The Million Dollar Hotel” (2000) starring Mel Gibson and Mila Jovovich, “Chocolat” (2000) with Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp, “Circus” (2000), and Bruiser” (2000), all of which added a significant amount to his net worth.

In 2002, Peter had roles in “Bad Company”, with (Sir) Anthony Hopkins and Chris Rock, “Windtalkers” alongside Nicolas Cage, and “Minority Report” starring Tom Cruise and Colin Farrell, directed by the one and only Steven Spielberg.

He moved on to the TV series “Watching Ellie” through 2002 and 2003, and “Hitler: The Rise of Evil” (2003). He then portrayed Satan in “Constantine” (2005) alongside Keanu Reeves, and Cavaldi in “The Brothers Grimm” (2005). In the second half of the 2000s, Peter starred in such productions as “Prison Break” (2005-2007) as John Abruzzi, “Nacho Libre” (2006) as Emperor with Jack Black, “Gone With The Woman” (2007), “Anamorph” (2007) with Willem Dafoe in the lead role, “Horseman” (2009), and “Convict” (2009), among others, all of which added a lot to his net worth.
With the beginning of the new decade, nothing much changed for Peter, as he remained dedicated to acting, and has had several more notable roles including in “Janie Jones” (2010), “Marianne” (2011), “Inseparable” (2011), “Small Apartments” (2012), “The Last Stand” (2013), and “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” (2013), with Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton. By 2015, Peter also had roles in “Autumn Blood” (2013), “The Blacklist” (2014), “Clown” (2014), and “Manhattan” (2014-2015). Most recently, Peter has appeared in the TV series “Swedish Dicks” (2016), “Black Widows” (2016), and in the films “Rupture” (2016), and “King of the Dancehall” (2016), which have also increased his net worth. Also, Peter has several projects in the making, including TV series “American Gods”, and films “Kill`em All”, “John Wick: Chapter Two”, which are all scheduled for 2017 release, and also “False Memory Syndrome”, which will be released in 2016.

Peter`s net worth has also increased thanks to his work as a voice actor; he has lent his voice to characters from animated films and TV series, but also video games, including “Transformers: Animated” (2008), “Strange Magic” (2015), “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” (2015-2016), “Mercenaries 2”: World In Flames” (2008), and “Elder Scrolls Online” (2014), among other titles.

Regarding his personal life, Peter has been married to Toshimi since 2008, with whom he has one child. Previously, he was married to actress and speech coach Karen Sillas from 1989 until 2006.

1There are so many people who hate themselves, and I realized early on that you can't change your looks. You have to live with what you've got. And you have to give yourself credit every morning by saying "yes!" -- and that'll help you. But if you dis yourself every morning, it's not good for you mentally, and it won't help your appearance. It's not that I love my looks. But ... it's me. And I cherish the blessing that there's only one me in this world. I'm happy about that fact, and it shines through sometimes.
2Yeah, prep is very important -- for me, at least. I like to improvise. But if you're the only one improvising, then you can f**k it up for other actors in the scene if you're the only one coming up with new things. Sometimes it can be good, and the director tells you to do something to stir or awaken the actors whom you're playing with, or they do it to you and you have a great reaction. But I think it's the directors who especially need to prepare their work. A lot of young directors today work on digital and run the cameras 24/7, and it's tedious for an actor to do the same scene over and over again. When a director is prepped, you feel very secure, and you become a better actor. He knows what he wants and he's like, "Okay, let's move on to the next scene."
3They [the Coen Brothers] have an obsession with pancakes. It's a Midwestern thing, I guess. I had never had pancakes. I grew up in Sweden, and I'm not a big fan of pancakes.
4I've done Hamlet, and no one talks about Hamlet killing five people. No one even talks about sending him to jail. And it's the same thing for a character like Abruzzi. I think people root for him because he's just punishing people who are bad humans in a way. Always in movies and TV, in drama we always root for those characters. Even if they have killed four or five people, they have killed people that we've really disliked. They have done us a service. And he's such a character. That's why I've tried to keep him very Shakespearean. --talking about his character John Abruzzi from Prison Break (2005)
5Upon receiving the Fargo (1996) script: "Where are all my lines?!"
6"I was a foreigner, and I knew that most of the parts I would be offered would be foreigners. I knew I could not compete with Bruce Willis, Tom Cruise, and Nicolas Cage, and so I did not fight it. I saw the path I was destined to walk and decided to do the parts that would be offered to me as well as I possibly could." --on his initial career outlook when he first came to the U.S. to act.
7"I liked the way that film took realistic events and added this slightly out-of-kilter perspective. My character in that film was, in one sense, a caricature of a killer, but there was also a sense of mystery surrounding him that captured the imagination. Fargo (1996) was an exciting experience for me largely because of the approach the Coen brothers took. It was the antithesis of Armageddon (1998). It was low-budget, a very guerrilla-style approach to filmmaking that made its own rules and was very specific in what it was trying to accomplish." --on Fargo (1996).
8"I grew up in northern Sweden in a very small village and this is exactly the same. It's very strange. It's two hundred small villages linked together. Living here as compared to living in Tokyo, where I lived, or in London or New York, this is so much more like living in the country. You go to bed early and you get up early, even if you're not working. You get up early with the sun and go to bed with the sun. That is much more rural kind of living and it suits me so much better than New York." - On Los Angeles.
