Rachel Emily Nichols was born on 8 January 1980, in Augusta, Maine USA, and is a model and actress, probably best known for being part of the drama film “Autumn in New York”. She also had an appearance in “Sex and the City”, but all of her endeavors have helped put her net worth to where it is today.
How rich is Rachel Nichols? As of early-2017, sources inform us of a net worth that is at $2 million, mostly earned through a successful career in acting. Some of the other projects she’s been a part of include “Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd”, “The Amityville Horror”, and “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2”. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will increase.
Rachel Nichols Net Worth $2 million
Nichols attended Cony High School and during her time there competed in the high jump, but also took dance classes in order to better control her arms and legs. After matriculating, she attended Columbia University hoping to then work as a Wall Street analyst, but she was noticed by a modeling agent who would invite her to Paris. She started working as a model, paying her tuition through her modelling career. Her popularity started to grow and her net worth also increased. She appeared in advertising campaigns for L’Oreal, Guess, and Abercrombie & Fitch. And as a host of several MTV specials. She graduated in 2003 with a double major in math and economics.
After doing some commercial work, Rachel transitioned to television, getting a small part in “Autumn in New York” before landing a one episode role in “Sex in the City”. She made her first major film appearance in “Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd”, which wasn’t very successful critically, and she would then become part of the independent film “Debating Robert Lee”, in which she played a member of a high school debate team. In 2004, she was cast in supporting roles for horror films “The Woods” and “The Amityville Horror”, winning an MTV Movie Award and Teen Choice Award for her role in the latter. The film received negative reviews but had a lot of success commercially. “The Woods” would gain good reviews and a lot of critics noticed her performance. She was also cast in the series called “The Inside”, which went through numerous revisions before being aired. However, low ratings and mixed reception of the series led it to be cancelled after 13 episodes.
In 2005, Rachel found a role in the fifth season of the highly popular series “Alias” which starred Jennifer Garner; she appeared as a computer expert who would eventually become part of the CIA.
She had to learn to fight and was set to be a replacement to Garner, however, the fifth season became the show’s final. She would then go on to appear in several projects, mainly in small roles before starring in the thriller film “P2”; this film received negative reviews though her performance fared better in the eyes of critics. In 2008, she was cast in a supporting role in “The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2” before being cast as Scarlett in “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra”. Again, the film was not well received by critics, but had success at the box office, helping Rachel’s net worth increase.
A few of Nichols’ recent projects include “Criminal Minds”; she first appeared as a guest star before being promoted as a series regular. After she was removed from the show, she then became a part of the science fiction series “Continuum”, which was very successful and led to Rachel earning two Saturn Awards and a Constellation Award during its four seasons.
For her personal life, it is known that Rachel married film producer Scott Stuber in 2008, but their marriage ended seven months later. In 2013, she confirmed an engagement to real estate developer Michael Kershaw, and they married in September 2014.
Her father has English and French-Canadian ancestry. Her maternal grandfather was of three quarters Italian and one quarter German descent, while her maternal grandmother had English, Scottish and Northern Irish ancestry.
Married producer Scott Stuber on July 26, 2008 in Aspen, Colorado.
Ranked #28 on Maxim magazine's Hot 100 Women of 2003 list.

[on Continuum (2012)] I like these strong female role models. Carlos [Victor Webster] had a shower scene the other day. Without his top on. He gets to do all the fun eye-candy stuff, and I get to kill people. It's gritty.
I love the physicality side of roles, I really do. And when I get to do my own stunts, it's that much cooler. I'll do anything the production safety people will let me.
History is fickle. We know that. The good and bad come around and go around, and go around again. There are recessions and depressions and economic boom and bust. I'm concerned about the future. I think many people acknowledge we're on a path that can't be sustained.
[on her first sex scene in a movie] They were nice enough to shoot the scene at the end of filming, so by then Jason [Jason Momoa] and I had become friends. But it still is awkward, especially when you have the director saying, "Grab her neck and bite her.".
[on playing the role of Tamara in Conan the Barbarian (2011)] It was really important that she not be the damsel-in-distress. We wanted to update and empower her, and the best way to do that is to go toe-to-toe with Conan. So I give him attitude in the beginning, and there really is a hostile relationship.
