So, have you ever wondered how rich Rachael Taylor is, as of late 2017? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the total size of Rachael’s net worth is over $4 million, accumulated not only through her involvement in the entertainment industry as a professional actress, but also through her involvement in the fashion industry as a model.
Rachael Taylor Net Worth $4 Million
Rachael Taylor spent her childhood in her hometown, where she was raised by her parents Nigel and Christine Taylor. She went to Riverside High School and there started performing in a number of school plays. Upon matriculation, she enrolled at the University of Sydney, but quit in order to pursue her career as an actress. Rachael’s modeling career had already begun while she was in her teens. She signed a contract with the Skye-Jilly International model agency, and participated in competition for the State finals of Miss Teen Tasmania, reaching finals, which marked the beginning of her net worth. In no time, she appeared in the Miss Universe as well as the Miss World state finals.
However, her acting career began in 2004, when she made her debut appearance in the role of Maryann Marinkovich in the TV film “The Mystery Of Natalie Wood”, which was followed by the role of Catherine Oxenberg in the TV film “Dynasty: The Making Of A Guilty Pleasure” in 2005. During the same year, she was selected to portray Sasha Forbes in the Australian series “Headland” (2005-2006), for which she earned a nomination for a Logie Award for Most Popular New Female Talent. Concurrently, she was involved in two horror film titles – playing Teri in “Man-Thing” and as Zoe in “See No Evil”. Her next major role came in the following year, when she was featured as Maggie Madsen in Michael Bay’s film “Transformers”, starring alongside Josh Duhamel and Megan Fox.
By the end of the 2000s, Rachael had also appeared in such film titles as “Shutter” (2008), “Splinterheads” (2009), and “Summer Coda” (2010), among others, all of which added a considerable amount to her net worth.
In the next decade, Rachael continued to line up successes, appearing in the role of Nancy in the 2011 film “Red Dog”, directed by Kriv Stenders, and portraying Anne in “The Darkest Hour” (2011). During the same year, she was chosen to play Dr. Lucy Fields in the TV series “Grey’s Anatomy”, and Abby Sampson in the TV series “Charlie’s Angels”, both of which lasted briefly.
To speak further about her acting career, Rachael won the role of Jane Van Veen in the TV series “666 Park Avenue” from 2012 to 2013, and in the following year was selected for the role of Agent Susie Dunn in another TV series, entitled “Crisis”. Most recently, she portrayed Trish Walker in the TV series “Jessica Jones” (2015), and reprised the role in the TV series “The Defenders” in 2017. So, her net worth is certainly rising.
If to talk about her personal life, Rachael Taylor is still single. She was previously in relationships with agent Jason Trawick in 2008, and actor Matthew Newton from 2009 to 2010. In her spare time, she is active on her official Twitter account.
AKA Jessica Jones was not Rachael Taylor's first Marvel Studios job. Man-Thing (2005) was one of Marvel's earlier (and lesser known) installments of the MCU and is based on the comic book of the same name.

When you are in control of what the final product is, there is kind of no limitation to what you feel like you can do because you know that if you don't like it, you can just cut it out.
Sometimes when Australians go overseas, it's as though the "Aussie" is refined out of them. I don't know why. It's never happened to me, because I'm really proud of it. I'm not embarrassed about where I'm from or who I am any more. I know who I am. I don't fit in everywhere, but I know where I do fit in.
The earth is such a voluminous, sparse, wild place that has its own rhythm that human beings try to control and strategize our way around, but the truth is, if you're out someplace like the ocean on a capsized boat, it doesn't matter if you have academic degrees, or if you're a martial-arts ninja. Nature is a bigger force than you.
Transformers (2007) was important and defining for me because it taught me about what kinds of movies I want to make and the kind of actor I want to be, and I have a long way to go before I become that actor.
In terms of style I typically veer toward a certain masculinity. My style inspirations range from images of my father in his 1970s suits, to Tilda Swinton, to Hugh Hefner, to Sharon Stone and her ferocious sexuality, to handsome men I see on the streets of New York.
Often, as a young actress, you find yourself being the only girl in a room full of men... and one of the reasons why I like Grey's Anatomy (2005) is because they have such strong female characters and the women really drive this show.
I think all television has to be about relationships and I don't think horror for the sake of it can work unless you're able to ground it in some kind of relationship.
I'm a huge fan of good, procedural-type shows on television... there are a lot of roles for women. But there aren't a lot of great network television roles for girls that will let you start a character in one place and finish up with her in a totally different one.
I'm an actor that likes to go to work. I like going to work every day. I'm a worker by nature. I'm not someone who does one film a year and feels satisfied by that.
If incredible creatures like sharks can exist, why not Bigfoot? When I look at sharks, they're the most terrifying, monstrous, dinosaur-like things. To this day, I'm so fascinated by them and can't get my head around how they are on Planet Earth at all.
I know what I want, I want things for myself, but I think the key to life is somebody to love, something to do and something to look forward to. I don't think it's complicated.
I eat excellent bread, clean meat, good crisp veggies, organic fruits and nice wine and cheese. It is one of the things I am truly grateful for. I'm not kidding. You can't ask a single mother of three working two jobs for minimum wage to eat that way. I am lucky.
I like to work out. I work out hard when I get to it, but it's so sporadic, I'm not sure it counts at all! I eat pretty much anything, but I eat high-quality food. There was never a packet of chips or box of candy in my house when I was growing up. Ever.
I definitely wouldn't shy away from doing another action based project, but I feel like my forte is more like playing real, ordinary people. I'm a girl's girl.
Young adults in their late 20s are confronted by so many choices - there are so many different paths to choose. Sometimes I think we just fill our lives with stuff so we don't really make any choice at all, which is certainly incredibly luxurious.
I can see my ghost trying to get that Academy Award, forever stuck in a casting office. Can you imagine? I've spent enough time in audition rooms. I don't want to be doing that in my afterlife.
I'm all about a flat shoe. It takes a lot to get me into a heel!
I'm not a collector. I toss things out all the time.
I've done stuff to pay my dues and that's what actors are supposed to do, because I was a really bad actor when I was 18 or 20.
If I'm going to take my clothes off I figured I might as well do it for something that I'm directing myself since I had complete control of the edit.
Aesthetically, I don't really like the blond, tan thing. I am pale. So I may as well embrace the pale. Long blond hair and a bad spray tan is the stuff of my nightmares.
An inspiring word for me is to think of myself as limitless.
I really like working in television and I like exploring a character over a longer period of time, and I like the consistency of television.
I like people that are not frightened to say what they think.
I don't really look forward to movie stardom or doing a $200-million movie or winning an Academy Award.
For me, clothing is nothing without the story behind it. Everything I own evokes some kind of memory.
Falling in love, romance, matters of the heart - when you fall in love, on some biochemical level you know there is a chance it won't work out. It's ingrained in us that if you take such an enormous risk on someone with your heart that it might not pay off. I gamble all my chips and I might actually lose everything.
We live in a world of instant gratification, the world of the quick fix.
I tend not to wear accessories. I'm not one of those gals with a drawerful of amazing jewelry. I don't even have my ears pierced! But I have one bracelet that never comes off my wrist.
I do support a sex-positive attitude for young people. Use condoms, that's important. I love the idea that promiscuity can be healthy but it's got some dodgy crevasses. Ooh, that's a bad reference! But it's got some dangerous cavities there. You know what I'm saying.
I realized that I'm a soft person. I think I'm sensitive. I wanted very much to be tough and I think movie stars have a certain kind of resilience and toughness to them, but I'm quite a sensitive young lady in some respects.
