Sam Asghari Biography – Sam Asghari Wiki
Sam Asghari is an Iranian-born American actor and personal trainer. He rose to fame after he was featured in the former girl group Fifth Harmony’s music video “Work From Home.” That was followed by a leading role in the “Slumber Party” music video for pop star Britney Spears. After countless auditions, he landed a guest-starring role on NCIS, a recurring role on BET’s The Family Business and undisclosed projects at HBO Max and Apple TV.
The Iranian-born actor is inspired by actor and retired professional wrestler Dwayne Johnson. “I look up to Dwayne Johnson and the quality of his career. The reason why I look up to him is because with all the perceptions he had going on with the muscular look, the WWE look, he still came out to Hollywood and he was able to really breakout there and really do any type of roles,” said Asghari in a past interview. “It’s great to see that someone like that paved a path for people like me to be able to pursue it. My goal in acting is to become an action figure. I want to show my variety of acting. I want show that I’m able to do comedy, I’m able to do action, I’m able to do drama. I want to show what I’ve been training for. I’ve been doing a lot of reading for big parts and really getting ready for it.”
Sam Asghari was born and raised in Tehran, Iran. He moved to the United States at the age of 12. “I actually left my family behind at the time because my family was still going through FBI check and immigration process,” he told Forbes. “I left three of my sisters behind, my mom behind. My dad was out here in America and I hadn’t seen him in about five years or so. It was definitely a culture shock, coming out here with a completely different language to speak. I didn’t speak a word of English and it was a weird age where I was finally so comfortable with my friends and [I had to] leave them behind to start a new life. So when I got out here, it was very different but I always had a positive mindset. I always knew that I was coming to a country where opportunity was the equivalent to gold. I was brought up by my dad knowing and understanding that we were coming here for a better life.”

Sam Asghari Net Worth
Sam Asghari’s net worth is estimated to be $1 million. His girlfriend, Britney Spears, has a net worth of $60 million, according to Forbes. According to court documents, her assets are mostly held in various brokerage accounts, real estate and cash.
In 2002, Forbes named her the world’s most powerful celebrity, with an estimated $40 million of income before taxes and fees. The fallen pop queen has lagged far behind her contemporaries Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Lopez. Simpson and Lopez each have built fortunes of more than $100 million, according to Forbes estimates.
After several years of media scrutiny, Spears suffered a public mental breakdown and was put under court-ordered conservatorship in 2008. The judge handed control of her career and finances to her father, James, who is now the villain of the fan-driven #FreeBritney movement, a social media advocacy effort out to “free” Spears from the conservatorship.
The conservatorship has not been good for her career or her net worth. In recent years, Spears has resisted her father’s control while also paying millions of dollars in legal fees tied to the conservatorship that is charged with tightly controlling her lifestyle, as well as child support to her ex-husband Kevin Federline.
