One of the most asked questions about the actress is about her net worth and wealth. As our sources state, Dana has a net worth of over $2 million, made from her acting career over two decades.
Background, Education and Fans
Dana’s ethnicity is African-American and has dark brown hair and brown eyes, which look stunning with her complexion. She always looks smart in photos available on the internet, and has a fit figure. As to her education, the actress holds a BFA in Performance Art from the University of Louisiana, Lafayette, and an MFA in Acting from the California Institute of the Arts, which she has put to good use. Gourrier is active on social media and uses it for interacting with her fans, sharing a fair amount of information with them who seemingly enjoy her content.
Sadly, not much can be said about Dana’s private life, as she tries to keep it away from the media as much as possible. We don’t have any facts about her relationship status, as she hasn’t confirmed or denied any of the rumors about her love life. In her Twitter bio, the actress described herself as “Faithful. Daughter. Sister. Friend. Actor. Singer. Writer. Director. Love to All…” so we suppose that she’s single. Reportedly, she has never married and doesn’t have any children.
Dana made her debut in 2011, when she worked on “Worst. Prom. Ever.”, and followed by appearing in “Treme”, “Memphis Beat” and “Haunted High”. She rose to fame in 2012, landing the role of Cora in “Django Unchained,” the highly praised American Western revisionist movie written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, and featuring Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson and Kerry Washington in the starring roles.
Dana also had a chance to collaborate with actors such as Walton Goggins, James Remar, Dennis Christopher, Michael Parks and Don Johnson.
It is a highly stylized homage to Spaghetti Westerns, and premiered in December 2012 at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City and was subsequently released theatrically later that month. It ultimately grossed over $425 million at the box office. The film has won numerous awards, including five Oscars at the 85th Academy Awards, most importantly for Best Picture.
In 2013, the actress joined the cast of another prominent award-winning project, “American Horror Story”, in which she portrayed Chantal, a minor recurring character, and in the following year, she began working on “True Detective”, a mystery anthology series produced and written Nic Pizzolatto, securing herself a place under the spotlight. The show premiered in 2014 on HBO, and each season is designed as an individual story, using new cast members.
More importantly, in 2015 Gourrier could be seen in “The Hateful Eight”, another project of Quentin Tarantino. Her collaboration with the writer and director brought her more attention from the media, and helped her make a name for herself. She spoke about her work with Tarantino in one interview, saying that, after she appeared in “Django: Unchained”, she would have jumped at any opportunity to act in his movies.
In 2017, she appeared in “Heart, Baby”, which follows the story of two best friends, George and Doc, as they reunite in prison.
The movie, which was a commercial success, focuses on the value of friendship When it comes to her latter career, the actress was cast in in “Raising Dion”, “Awaken” and “The United States vs. Billie Holiday”, with the latter biopic movie being filmed at the moment. The movie presents the story of Billie Holliday, a successful singer, and the subject of investigation of African-American Federal Agent Jimmy Fletcher, with whom she had an affair. So far, Dana has had close to 50 acting gigs, and is consistently in demand so still building her career.
