Cassandra Peterson – $3 Million
Even as a young girl, Cassandra Peterson resisted being stereotyped as what was deemed “girly” at the time. She refused to play with Barbie dolls, opting instead to immerse herself in the mystery and excitement of horror movies.
Cassandra Peterson started her career as a showgirl in Las Vegas when she was just 17 years old.
She took her talents to the stage in her 20s, where she was the lead singer for various Italian rock bands. But, as the 1980s rolled in, so made Peterson’s career, especially after she earned her most memorable role, Elvira.
