Who is Sara Malakul Lane and what is her net worth 2018? If you are a fan of incredibly hot model-turned-actors like I am, surely you would have heard of the ever popular Sara Malakul Lane. This Thai-English model recently entered the cine field with quite a bang. The raw confidence and sexiness Sara exudes as an actress made her the perfect choice for a couple of movies. She also made good use of her modelling skills and flaunted her perfect body in these films!
Sara Lane was born on the 1st of February in 1983 in the famous island of Guam. It seems the models and actors that the island produces also become very popular like the island itself.
Sara started her modelling career at a very young age and she moved on to bigger projects and became more popular until she landed her first acting project in 1995 at the age of 15. Doing her first acting job just at the age of 15 meant that Sara had to learn on the job and later transitioned from acting to modelling. The first acting job she landed was in a Thai TV series.
Career: Apart from landing her first acting job at the mere age of 15, Sara got offers for roles in various Thai soaps all of which were instrumental in molding her as an actor and as a model in her later years. As soon as she was done with her first TV show in Guam, she quickly began acting in various other shows and gained a fan following in her home state before moving to America when she turned 20 to act in the big leagues aka Hollywood.
The first role she landed as soon as coming to Hollywood was the role of Steven Seagal’s daughter in the film ‘Belly of the Beast’ which came out in the year 2003. This was then followed by a long stint at modelling where she was quite successful and yearned to change stereotypes faced by Thai women. She was then cast in ‘Sharktopus’ alongside Eric Roberts in the year 2010 immediately followed by a place on the cast of the 2011 film, ‘The Wayshower’ where she acted with Roberts for the second time and with Peter Stormare too.
This marked her shift from a model to a model turned actress as she was hired by a production company called ‘The Asylum’ for which she acted in a number of films. The production company specialised in direct-to-video films which made Sara very popular and sort of a household name at least among the Thai community which was proud of her growth in the industry.
Sara Malakul Lane Net Worth
Sara Malakul Lane has an estimated net worth of $2.4 million. Apart from the two big films, Sara acted in alongside Eric Roberts and Peter Stormwater, she also starred in a multitude of direct to video movies all of which helped her increase her net worth to what it is today. Having established a name for herself as a model and having an attractive body helped Sara bag a whole lot of endorsement deals and advertisement campaigns all of which contributed to an ever increasing net worth for the pretty lady. It did not hurt that she also appeared on the cover of Playboy Magazine in 2014.
Sara, having spent a lot of time instructed by her elders in the Thai community that she should be a perfect little angel, strived a lot to keep it that way until she made the transition into acting and realised that girls could be whoever they wanted to be instead of working hard to maintain the image thrust upon them.
She understood the world wasn’t a forgiving place and that she had to fight for her place in the industry and in Hollywood. All of this helped her break out of the mold. She also helps put the message across to her fans in the Thai community and help them realise that everything wasn’t so dark and gloomy out in the real world.
The ever popular actor, Sara’s recent projects include ‘Kickboxer’ where she plays a Bangkok detective who later becomes the love interest of the lead actor. The first Kickboxer movie was announced in 2014 and released in September 2016.
