Who is Tim Burton’s ex-wife Lena Gieseke?
Born Helena Gieseke under the sign of Virgo on the 12th of September 1965, in Bremen, (then) West Germany, Lena Gieseke is a 52-year-old Caucasian visual effects artist, but perhaps better known to the world for being the (now ex-) wife of the legendary writer, animator and director Tim Burton. However, she has had personal successes as a visual effects artist in various films throughout her career in the sometimes lucrative visual effects artistry profession since the 1980s.
Early Life and Education
Lena was raised a single child in the aforementioned city, by parents of unknown names and professions. There is no information regarding her early youth, and thus it is unknown at what point she took an interest in what she does today. As per her education, she actually left Germany to study in Athens, Greece, where she attended an art high school, matriculated and returned to Germany to further her education. At this point, she was already keen on mastering photography and other visual arts. However, Germany didn’t quite make the cut when it comes to prestigious visual art education, and so she made her way to England, where she first attended Wimbledon College, later deciding that it wasn’t her piece of cake, and transferring to Goldsmith College in London, then having another change of heart and finally moving to California USA, where she studied fine arts and photography at California Institute of Arts, from where she graduated.
Since Lena herself chose to keep her romantic life out of the media’s eye, not much is known about her relationships prior to and after Tim Burton. They met at the filming of the aforementioned “Batmen”, and while Lena was taking shots on the set, Tim noticed her and took an interest. They dated for a short time before marrying in a private celebration in February 1989. However, they divorced only two years later, on New Year’s Eve in 1991; it’s alleged that Tim’s personality was too much of a challenge for Lena, and that she filed for divorce because she knew about his ‘secret’ relationship with his future public partner Lisa Marie – although she is a known model and actress, she used to be a stripper prior to dating Tim.
What is Lena Gieseke’s Net Worth?
Have you ever wondered how rich Lena Gieseke is, as of mid-2018? According to various authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the current total of Lena’s accumulated wealth is close to $1 million, largely aided by her successes in the entertainment industry, while the greatest contribution comes from her experience as the visual effects artist for “2012.” As her career presumably continues to develop, the said amount could be expected to increase.
Concerning the physical attributes of the experienced 3D artist, her fame is unfortunately insufficient for any reputable media source to try and obtain such information. Thus, her vital statistics, height and weight are unknown, but her body shape used to be generally described as fit, while her hair color is light brown and her eyes are light blue.
Social Media Presence
Due to the major influence of social networks, it is nowadays a regular thing for active special effects artists to nourish a close and active relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing the popularity of titles they’re working on, and thus their own net worth. However, it looks like Lena herself is neither active nor a subscriber of this celebrity trend, as she is nowhere to be traced on any of the popular social media networks, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
