Parminder Nagra Net Worth $1.5 Million


Parminder, of Sikh ancestry, she is the oldest child of Sukha and Nashuter Nagra, who emigrated to the UK from India in the ‘60s. She grew up in her hometown with her three younger two brothers and sister. She went to Soar Valley College, where she also played the viola, and took part of in few theatrical productions.

She left school after completing A-levels, and was asked by her school drama teacher to join Haithizi Productions in Leicester, so in 1994 she became a chorus member of the musical “Nimai”, but was eventually promoted to the lead singer when that cast member dropped out after a week of rehearsals.

Encouraged by her early success, Nagra moved to London, honing her stage acting skills by appearing in the pantomime “Sleeping Beauty”, premiered at the Theatre Royal Stratford East. She then signed contracts with the small Indian theatre companies Tamasha, and Tara Arts, among others, and thanks to her success on stage in the mid- ‘90s, she made a few notable appearances in the second half of the decade, in such productions as “Skeleton” in 1997, “Fourteen Songs, Two Weddings & A Funeral” (1998), and “The Square Circle”, among others, which really established her net worth.

She slowly diversed into screen roles too, starting with supporting parts in such productions as the TV series “Casualty” (1996-1998), and the television film “King Girl” in 1998.

She waited until 2002 for her first notable appearance on screen, when she was chosen for the role of Jesminder ‘Jess’ Kaur Bhamra in the cult film “Bend It Like Beckham”, starring next to Keira Knightley and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, which launched Parminder to stardom and increased her wealth to a large degree, since the film grossed more than $76 million with just $5 million budget. The following year she started portraying Dr. Neela Rasgotra in the TV series “ER”, and through 2009 featured in more than 125 episodes of the highly acclaimed series, which also contributed to her net worth. Concurrently Nagra featured in other productions, such as the fantasy film “Ella Enchanted” in 2004, then romantic comedy film “In Your Dreams” and the drama film “Compulsion” both in 2008. She then waited for two years for another notable role, when she was chosen for the cast of the film “Horrid Henry” in 2011, and the following year played Dr. Lucy Banerjee in the TV series “Alcatraz”. In 2013, Parminder was rather busy, as she worked on several productions, including the television film “Reckless”, then the TV series’ “The Blacklist”, and also “Psych”. She subsequently had more success in 201, and 2017, when she started playing Senator Ellen Nadeer in the TV series “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”, and Dr. Sarinda Khatri in the TV series “Fortitude”, which considerably increased her wealth by a large margin.

Regarding her personal life, Nagra was in a five years-long relationship with fellow actor Kieran Creggan, and was then married to photographer James Stenson from 2009 until 2013; the couple have a son, born in 2009.

Back in 2004, Parminder carried the Olympic torch through London, while on its way to Athens, Greece, where the games were held.
