How rich is Alessandra Torresani? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $1 million, earned through a successful career as an actress. She’s also done work on films, and has been featured in several publications. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Early Career
Alessandra grew up in Palo Alto, where her father ran several startup tech companies, and her mother worked as a CEO. At the age of two, she discovered her passion for performance as she began studying singing and dancing, and began training in martial arts, particularly in taekwondo in which she eventually earned a black belt. The Korean martial art is emphasized by various kick techniques including jumping and spinning kicks. It was developed during the 1940s by martial artists who combined elements of karate, Chinese martial arts, and indigenous Korean martial arts traditions.
At the age of eight, she took the first step of her career, working for The WB Television Network in which she did interviews between cartoons. The network is a joint venture between Warner Bros and Time Warner, airing programming targeting teenagers as well as young adults. This led to her television debut as the host for the Kid’s WB Club, which aired on San Francisco’s KBWB also known as Channel 20.
Rise to Fame
One of Torresani’s first big projects was the Disney Channel Original Movie entitled “Going to the Mat”; in the film, she played Mary Beth Rice and starred alongside Andrew Lawrence – the film was critically acclaimed, and won several award, plus being one of the highest rated Disney movies on the website IMDb. After her Disney project, Alessandra had more television work, mostly as a guest in shows such as “Even Stevens”, “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”, and “Malcolm in the Middle”.
She continued to build her resume, and in 2008, she was cast in one of her most notable roles, in Syfy’s “Caprica” in the role of Zoe Graystone. The show is a prequel spin-off of “Battlestar Galactica”, set 58 years before the destruction of the 12 colonies of Kobol. The show focused on how humanity first created Cylon androids, who would later turn against the humans. The show ran for one season, pausing during the mid-season due to low ratings, and was then cancelled. The remaining unaired five episodes were eventually aired later in the year as part of a marathon. Despite that, she continued to gain more projects, including features in the publication “Rolling Stone”.
In 2009, it was announced that Torresani would be cast in a biopic of the all-girl punk band The Runaways, in a film of the same name. She was set to play the character Lita Ford, but was replaced by Scout Taylor-Compton. The following year, she was featured in the publication “Maxim” as a Girl of Maxim – it’s an international men’s magazine known for its photography of models, singers and actresses during the peak of its career. It has a circulation of over nine million readers with over four million unique viewers of its website each month.
In 2013, she became the star of the web series entitled “Husbands”, which airs on websites such as Blip, YouTube, and Roku. The show follows a newly married couple, and is billed as a modern look on the classic newlywed sitcom. One of her latest projects was a recurring role in the sitcom “The Big Bang Theory”, in which she played bartender and aspiring screenwriter Claire. The show follows five characters living in Pasadena, California, four of whom are geeky and socially awkward friends. The show proved highly successful, winning 56 awards over its run, including a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television Comedy Series for Jim Parsons.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, not much is known in terms of any of her romantic relationships. She has not talked about dating or having a boyfriend, leading many to believe that she’s single – she hasn’t posted anything online that would indicate otherwise. According to her, she had a lot of energy growing up, and she doesn’t need a lot of sleep. She’s also known for her very deep and husky voice, which is unusual for her look. She isn’t afraid to express herself, and even mentioned in an interview that she loves being naked.
