Lea Michele is an American actress and singer with an estimated net worth of $5.5 million.  She is 5’2 1/2″ and weighs 106 pounds. Lea Michele Sarfati was born on August 29, 1986 in the Bronx, New York to mother Edith, a nurse, and father Marc Sarfati, a deli owner. Growing up in Tenafly, New Jersey, Lea yearned to perform from a young age and with a love for the theater, made a splash on Broadway at age nine in 1995 with her debut performance as “Cosette” in the famed production Les Miserables. By 2008, at just twenty-two years old, Lea had made a name for herself as an impressive stage actress with notable performances in productions including Fiddler on the Roof, Spring Awakening and another run in Les Miserables in 2006, this time in the role of “Eponine.”

In 2009, writer/creator Ryan Murphy was seeking theatrical actors to cast in his project, Fox’s new musical-comedy drama Glee, when he was awestruck by Lea’s talents after seeing her perform on Broadway. As well as landing the show’s starring lead female role, the character “Rachel Berry” would be created specifically for Michele. The career move into television would prove life-changing for Lea, propelling her into a new level of celebrity and fame, as Glee became an instant hit and she became a fan favorite.  Now with numerous award wins and nominations under her belt for her portrayal of “Rachel”, as well as roles in movies including 2011’s New Year’s Eve, Lea currently continues her work on the FOX hit phenomenon as it enters its fifth season.

After ending a two year romance with fellow Broadway actor Theo Stockman in 2011, Lea began dating Glee co-star, Cory Monteith later that year. Tragedy would hit the young couple in July 2013 when Monteith, at age thirty-one, died of a heroin and alcohol overdose in a Vancouver hotel.
