What is Michelle Yeoh’s net worth?
Michelle Yeoh is a Malaysian actress with an estimated current net worth of $40 million. She has been earning a large fortune from her work as an actress in the entertainment industry.
Credited as Michelle Khan in her early films in Hong Kong, she rose to fame in the 1990s after starring in Hong Kong action films where she performed her own stunts, such as Yes, Madam (1985); Magnificent Warriors (1987); Police Story 3: Supercop (1992); The Heroic Trio (1993); and Holy Weapon (1993).
In 1997 Yeoh became known to a wider audience with Tomorrow Never Dies, a James Bond film in which she played a Chinese agent. A departure from the typical “Bond girl,” her character is as intelligent and capable as the British spy. The film was also notable because Yeoh was hired for her acting, not her stunt work.
