Josh Winterhalt was born in 1976, in New Hampshire, USA. and is a mixed martial artist and martial arts instructor, but perhaps best known for his marriage to popular actress Sarah Wayne Callies. Sarah is known for her roles in the television shows “Prison Break” and “The Walking Dead”.

The Net Worth of Josh Winterhalt

How rich is Josh Winterhalt? As of mid-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $4 million, mostly earned through success in martial arts. His wife has probably also helped with his net worth, as she has estimated wealth of over $3 million. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.

Early Life and Meeting Sarah Wayne Callies

While not many details are known about Josh’s early life and his family, he grew up in New Hampshire and spent most of his time there. At a young age, he also developed an interest in martial arts which he started developing as he grew up, and he eventually attended the University of Dartmouth, and apparently graduated with a degree in martial arts. During his time there, he would meet his future wife Sarah Wayne Callies.

Sarah continued to persist with her passion in acting, while Josh pursued his passion in martial arts which, with other sports, he had been very interested in from his early years. After graduating he went on to improve his martial arts ability further, and would become an instructor as well as a trainer in various martial arts techniques. According to reports, he favors Russian-based martial arts, and considers it his forte. He regularly went to gymnasia, and taught people about martial arts as well as self-defense. Due to the nature of his work, he also trains regularly to maintain his body in shape, and keep the detriments of age at bay.

His Wife Sarah Wayne Callies

Josh and Sarah decided to marry in 2002, but their relationship was mainly kept away from the media spotlight, except from some big events in their life or when they are accidentally spotted in public together. A year after their marriage, Sarah moved to New York to pursue an acting career, and would have various guest appearances before landing her starring and breakthrough role in Fox’s “Prison Break”, in which she played the role of Sara Tancredi. She would continue to be a part of the show throughout its run, despite some story elements killing her off. She also had contract disputes which prevented her from being a part of the show for some time.

In 2010, her popularity was further boosted when she became a part of the AMC series entitled “The Walking Dead”, in which she played the role of Lori Grimes, the series being based on the comic book series of the same name. She would be a part of the show until the start of season three, in which her character was killed off. According to reports, she convinced writers that they should follow the story of her character, and how her character was killed off in the comics.

Continued Family Life

Even while Sarah was busy with her career, she and Josh would go on to have two children together. Their relationship has apparently maintained strength, and there have been no rumors of controversy between them. There has also been no reports of any affairs or problems with any other person outside of their relationship. The two have been spotted together appearing in public and at events usually involving Sarah’s projects, and they are also seen with their children in some of the photos.

Is Josh Winterhalt in Social Media?

Similar to many of the husbands of popular actresses or television personalities, Winterhalt has maintained a low profile for most of his life, including avoiding any social media presence on the major social media websites, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Due to the lack of information and pictures available of him, he’s often been mistaken for other popular personalities. People have confused him with Colton Haynes who is best known for his work in “Teen Wolf” and “Arrow”. He’s also been mistaken for actor Andrew Lincoln who played Sarah’s on screen husband in “The Walking Dead”.

On the other hand Sarah, being a part of the entertainment industry, is very active on social media. Her Instagram account is filled mostly with pictures of herself on set or travelling. She also promotes her recent work including “The Colony”, which she is now starring in. She rarely appears in any pictures with her family, including Josh. The same is true for her Facebook page which also promotes some of her recent projects, but on which she showcases some of her pictures which can also be seen on her Instagram account. Josh is also absent from her Facebook page, maintaining his privacy.

1[on growing up in Hawaii] It kept me out of trouble. On weekends, you'd wake up, go to the beach, go hiking, and by the time people in Iowa were drinking beer out of the back of a pickup truck, you were fast asleep.
2I love cooking. My signature dish? I make a pasta sauce from scratch that my husband loves. I add jalapeño peppers to give it a kick. You have to watch a man sweat when he eats a meal you make. It's important!
3[when asked who would be a better friend: Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Simpson or Paris Hilton] You know what? I'm going to go with Jennifer Garner. She seems like an intelligent and classy woman.
