The Riches of Geno Segers

How rich is Geno Segers? As of late-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $300,000, earned through a successful career as an actor. He’s been in the entertainment industry since 2004, and has also worked on several film projects.

Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings

Geno was raised by his parents in North Carolina, and at a young age developed a strong ability when it came to athletic activities. While in high school he was in several teams, including track, wrestling and football. After matriculating from high school, he enrolled at Western Carolina University (WCU), and played football for the school’s team.

WCU is a public university which is part of the University of North Carolina system. It is the fifth oldest institution in the system, and has around 12,000 in its student population. It is one of the three schools in North Carolina to take steps towards making its tuition affordable and accessible. This has led to a strong increase in attendance in the last few years. After graduating, he decided to pursue a career in professional sports, joining the American National Rugby League, which led him to play for the US team and win two caps against the Wales national team in 1995. Afterwards, he decided to move to New Zealand to play for the team, the Richmond Rovers.

Acting Transition

During his time in New Zealand, Segers heeded the suggestion of a friend that he should try auditioning for voice ads on radio. He had a natural bass tone that got him a lot of attention, and eventually an agent caught wind of him, casting him in an Australian production of “The Lion King” in which he portrayed the character of Mufasa. Soon, more acting projects would come his way, and he appeared in films in China before making his way to Hollywood.

In 2011, he became the host of “Fort Boyard: Ultimate Challenge”, originally a UK game show that was produced in the US in collaboration with Disney XD. In the game, six teams of teenagers battle it out in various challenges until one remains as the champion. He stayed there for a year, and while doing the show, he was also cast as a series regular in the Disney XD show “Pair of Kings”. The sitcom was filmed in front of a live studio audience, and follows two Chicago teens who discover that they are rulers of a fictitious island nation in the Pacific.

Continued Rise to Fame and Recent Projects

Geno stayed in “Pair of Kings” for three years and a total of 52 episodes until the show ended in 2013. A year later, he had a two episode role in the show “Teen Wolf”, a supernatural series loosely based on the 1985 film of the same name, following the story of a teenager who is bitten by a werewolf, and has to learn how to manage his life with this new development.

After an appearance in “Castle”, he was then cast as a regular of the show “Banshee” from its second season. The show aired on Cinemax and is set in a small town in Pennsylvania’s Amish country, following the story of an ex-convict who pretends to be the town’s murdered sheriff to try and hide from a crime lord. He appeared in two seasons, and then moved on to other television projects. A few of his latest works include voicing Gyrgan in the animated show “Voltron: Legendary Defender”, a reboot of the “Voltron” franchise, airing on Netflix.

Personal Life and Social Media

For his personal life, it is known that Segers has been in a relationship with Maria Canapino since 2011. The two frequently appear in public together though there has been no signs of the two getting married any time soon. He also does charity work, creating his own foundation called Hold It On the Road. He travels around the country for speaking engagements to help encourage youth to make good life decisions for their future. He loves expressing his sentiments and opinions, taking the time to try giving advice to others.

Similar to numerous actors, he is highly active online through accounts on social media. He has an account on Twitter on which he has over 23,000 followers, using the platform to promote his work as well as his own brand. He also has an account on Facebook which has over 6,000 followers and it posts similar content to that of his Twitter. The same can be said for his Instagram account which has over 31,000 followers, but on which he posts a lot of personal photos too. He loves taking selfies, and posting short videos on which he tries to motivate or encourage his followers.

  1. Geno was not born in 1978! I’m sick of seeing this reported wrong. He graduated East Forsyth in 1985 and he was 18! Count back and that is NOT 1978! Duh!
