Jack Davenport Net Worth $4 million

To begin with, Davenport is the son of actors Nigel Davenport and Maria Aitken, and lived with them in Ibiza, Spain the first seven years of his life. However, his parents divorced and he was sent to The Dragon School, which is a boarding school, and then went to Cheltenham College because his parents did not want him to stay home while the divorce was on. Davenport had never thought of being an actor, but his acting career began when he took a sabbatical year after being admitted to Cheltenham College. He was at a summer drama ceremony, and the director of The Welsh National Theatre invited him to work in the theatre, so at the age of 18, he ended up in Wales, working in theatre. The following year he entered the University of East Anglia (UEA), at which he studied film and English literature.

Concerning his professional career, he debuted in the role of Miles Stewart in the BBC TV drama series “This Life” in 1996 and ’97, through which he became known, and since which Davenport has had roles in many successful movies and television series. In 1998, he was cast as a main in the horror film “Tale of the Mummy” by Russell Mulcahy, and the following year starred alongside Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cate Blanchett in the psychological thriller “The Talented Mr. Ripley” by Anthony Minghella. The actor then landed the lead role in the sitcom “Coupling” from 2000 to 2004, but meantime began his association with the ‘Pirates’ franchise by starring in the box office hits “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” (2003), then in its successors “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” (2006) and “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” (2007), boosting his net worth considerably.

In 2006, Jack appeared in the ITV1 drama “The Incredible Journey of Mary Bryant”, and landed the main role in the series “Swingtown” aired on CBS. In 2009, he appeared in the movie “The Boat That Rocked”, which was a commercial failure, but then landed the main role in the series’ “Flash Forward” (2009 – 2010) and “Smash” (2012 – 2013) produced by Steven Spielberg. Davenport was also cast as a main in the award winning action spy comedy film “Kingsman: The Secret Service” (2014), which grossed well over $400 million at the box office, and most recently the actor starred in the feature films “The Wilde Wedding” and “The Stolen” both in 2017.

Overall, all the previously mentioned roles have added huge sums to the net worth of Jack Davenport.

Finally, in the personal life of the actor, he married Michelle Gomez in 2000, and they now have a son together.

#Quote
1About his costume in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003): "I came in that day and I saw Johnny in his costume and I was so jealous. He looked so cool, with his bandanna and his hat, and here I am, looking like an ice cream".
2My parents who worked in the business, felt lion-taming was preferable to acting. They said 93 per cent of all actors were out of work, and tried to talk me out of it. But I grew up mixing with Mum and Dad's friends. Adult actors are really childish, and that's nice to be around when you're a kid. So the big reason I wanted to be an actor was I really enjoyed actors' company - which probably makes me about as shallow as a puddle. But it could be worse. I could be working for a living.
3Acting is a cruel enough business. One minute everyone's going "Hey!" and the next they're going "Who?". You certainly don't need people knowing your private business, especially if you want to come out with your head still attached.
4I try not to see acting as anything other than a job. I hate it when I say to people I'm unemployed, and they say "you mean you're resting?" I'm like "No, unemployed", because I am. That's what acting's about - making a living.
5[About how his This Life (1996) character, "Miles Stewart", was received by the public] A lot of drunken women came up to me in pubs telling me I was a bastard. To begin with, I tried to explain that the show wasn't real, but then I found a better tactic was to look them in the eye and say "Yeah, you know what? I am".
6People tell me that Hollywood loves new faces, but I don't know. They're probably just being nice.
7During my childhood, I was surrounded by actors and all I remember is they were fun to be around. That kind of sticks.
8[describing his role in The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)] "The chap in the duffle coat jumping up and down in the background!"
