The Wealth of Felicia Day
How rich is Felicia Day? As of mid-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $1.5 million, earned through success in business, producing and acting. She is also the owner of the YouTube channel “Geek and Sundry”, and so as she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings
Felicia started her interests in acting at a young age, becoming a part of a local production of “To Kill A Mockingbird” at seven years old. She studied ballet and opera singing, performing in competitions as well as in concerts. She was home-schooled for most of her childhood, and was also an accomplished violinist, and was then accepted into the Juilliard School of Music.
However, she chose to attend the University of Texas at Austin instead, on a full violin performance scholarship, also double majoring in mathematics, and completing her degree at the age of 19 in the top 4% of her class. During her time she became an avid player of various video games, which inspire her to launch the web series “The Guild”, which is mainly based on her time playing the video game “World of Warcraft”. After completing her degree, she then moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.
Acting Endeavors and Internet Fame
Day landed roles in various commercials and independent films, leading her to larger roles such as in the film “Bring It On Again”. She also had a starring role in “June”, a recurring guest in the television series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, in which she played the role of potential slayer Vi, and also appeared in the 2005 biopic of Franklin D. Roosevelt entitled “Warm Springs”. Her popularity was propelled significantly when she created the web series “The Guild” in 2007, which aims to explore the culture of MMORPG gaming.
The first season of the show was primarily showcased through YouTube, and would go on to find so much popularity that the show signed a deal with Microsoft, with the cast as well as the crew being rewarded for their work. They released numerous comedy songs and music videos as a part of the show, so “The Guild” has won multiple awards, including several IAWTV awards, a Yahoo! Video Award, a YouTube Video Award, and a Greenlight Award from South by Southwest festivals.
In 2012, Felicia launched the YouTube channel Geek & Sundry, which would take over production of “The Guilt”. They also launched various other shows such as “Co-optitude”, “Vaginal Fantasy”, and “Felicia’s Ark”, and created the web series “Tabletop” which is hosted by Wil Wheaton, with Felicia often appearing as a guest on the show. In 2014, the company was bought by Legendary, with Felicia still maintaining creative control. She also consistently works with Joss Whedon on several projects, having appeared in “Dollhouse” as well as “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”. She continued her acting endeavors, appearing in shows such as “Lie to Me”, “Red”, and “Eureka”.
Felicia’s work also delved into video games, as she started to collaborate with BioWare for the web miniseries “Dragon Age; Redemption”, in which her character would eventually be available for the game “Dragon Age II” as downloadable content. She was made into a character for the board game “Dead of Winter: A Cross Roads Game”, and also ‘appeared’ in the board game “Gloom” as a promotional character. One of her most notable roles is in the series “Supernatural”, in which she plays the role of Charlie Bradbury, appearing as a part of the show since 2012.
