The Wealth of Laurel Coppock

Laurel Coppock has an estimated net worth of over $1.5 million, as of mid-2024, earned through a successful career in acting. Her consistent work with Toyota has helped increase her wealth.

Early Life and Education

Laurel is the daughter of Broadway performer Susan Coppock. She grew up alongside two sisters who also pursued careers in the arts, though different fields. She spent most of her youth around the East Coast, and at a young age became determined to pursue a career in acting. After matriculating from high school, she enrolled at theprivate Colby College in Waterville, Maine for her bachelor’s degree.

Laurel completed a degree in Performing Arts, and then furthered her studies at the Circle in the Square Theatre School, which offers two-year programs and is the only conservatory attached to a Broadway theatre while having accredited status, training students to work in professional entertainment, specifically for television, film, and theatre.

Acting Beginnings and Development

Following Coppock’s education in Circle in the Square, she was hired by an Amsterdam-based company Boom Chicago, for which she worked as an actor and improviser. The international creative group is known for their improvisational and sketch comedy which they perform on stage, has been in operations since 1993, and is currently located in Rozengracht, Amsterdam. Their performances often tackle political and social issues, including extremism, social media, economy, Europe, and technology.

Eventually Laurel returned to the US, and became one of the main members of the comedy sketch and improvisational group The Groundlings, based in Los Angeles, California. The name is taken from a scene in Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”, and it has become known for their consistent acting sessions done every six weeks.  While working with The Groundlings, Laurel continued to do improvisational work, which eventually led to more roles which had her perform in front of the camera.

Rise to Prominence

Over the years, Laurel would gain guest roles and recurring roles in several popular television series. She worked on the show “Modern Family”, a mockumentary sitcom following the lives of the family of Jay Pritchett, living in the suburbs of Los Angeles, and which received a lot of critical acclaim, especially during their earlier seasons. She also worked on “Arrested Development”, “The Office”, “Hot in Cleveland”, and “2Broke Girls”. One of her first film projects was “Food Jam” in 2006, and she also had a role in the film “Crazy, Stupid Love”,  a romantic comedy starring Steve Carrell as well as Ryan Gosling.

Her popularity would really skyrocket when she was hired by Toyota to start doing commercials as the character Jan, or Toyota’s Jan. In her first advertising series, she’s seen taking calls from customers of the company, to disperse more information about the Toyota Annual Clearance Event. She’s subsequently appeared in other commercials for the Japanese company, the sixth largest in the world by revenue, and the first manufacturer of automobiles to produce over 10 million cars a year. It dates its origin back to 1936, and is now the leader of hybrid electric vehicles as well as the leader in hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles.

She hasn’t taken any new roles on television or in films in recent years.

Personal Life

Coppock is married to actor and producer Bobby Mart, who’s worked on films such as “Locked Down” and “Beat Down”. They have a child together, though they’ve kept their relationship mostly away from the public. In recent years, she’s been interested in production, though improvisation remains her top priority as she continues to work with The Groundlings.

Many of her television commercials have been posted online, though she draws a very noticeable line between her professional and personal life, so doesn’t have any public presence online or on social media websites. She doesn’t appear in public events either, combined with the fact that not a lot of publications cover her endeavors.
