AIDAN GALLAGHER AS FIVE

Aidan is currently 16 years old, and he's the biggest fan of "The Umbrella Academy" graphic novels out of the cast. He said that Five is actually a dream role for any actor:

Gallagher also shared that he felt connected to his character because he's always considered himself to be older than his age and struggled to feel like he fit in.

In Season 2, he was excited to get to play the rageful and murderous Five, especially in the paradox psychosis episode, when he had to stand off against his older-looking self.

Have you ever wondered how the young actor prepared for such intense scenes? Apparently, whenever they would queue up to do a take, Aidan would sprint to his mark from 30 or 40 feet away so that by the time the camera rolled, he had this out-of-breath, jittery, angsty, violent look in his eyes.

Aidan has been acting since he was ten, so we shouldn't be surprised that this talented guy's net worth is approximately $1 million.

JUSTIN H.MIN AS BEN

Everyone's jaw dropped for Ben in the finale of Season 2, and it turns out that the actor was equally shocked by the twist. Incredibly, when filming that emotional scene with Ellen Page, Justin had no idea how the season would end.

He thought that it was his final scene on the show and felt like he was saying goodbye to "The Umbrella Academy." A few weeks after that, he got a top-secret email from the showrunner Steve Blackman and learned that he would stay.

"I read it and just started screaming at the top of my lungs," Justin shared. "I was completely shocked and flabbergasted and gobsmacked and overjoyed to be allowed to come back and be a part of this show."

Min is now 30 years old. There's little information about his earnings, but given that he only started his acting career in 2012, it's safe to assume that his net worth is less impressive than that of his more experienced co-stars.

The role of Ben is his biggest one to date. Amazingly, he had to keep his landing such a huge part a secret from literally everybody. Even his family thought that Justin was just taking a semester abroad in Toronto.

ROBERT SHEEHAN AS KLAUS

"The Umbrella Academy" is not Robert's first rodeo when it comes to supernatural shows. Although Robert Sheehan hasn't got many big film credits to his name, you might recognize him as Nathan from "Misfits."

Robert is almost two years older than Klaus, so he felt quite close to his character and dived into developing him from the show's very start. It was he who proposed that Klaus should be gay. "It just felt kind of truthful." – Sheehan revealed.

He also enjoyed the dynamic with his on-screen family, especially with Diego and Ben. In the second season, the actor was pleased to find that he shared many more scenes with Allison, but there's one pairing that remains constant – Klaus and Ben.

At one point in this season, it became even closer than usual: as you remember, Ben was in Klaus' body, which means that Robert Sheehan was playing Ben. So he decided to study Justin H. Min's mannerisms.

"I got Justin to do videos on repeat," explained Sheehan. "Annoyed him. Impersonated him. Followed him around. Appeared as he least expected it — for example, when he was on the latrine."

Sheehan's role in "The Umbrella Academy" is the most high-profile of his career so far, but as he's been in the industry from the early 2000's, it's no wonder that his estimated net worth is around $2.5 million.

DAVID CASTAÑEDA AS DIEGO

David Castaneda is actually 23 days younger than his knife-throwing character, making him the closest in age to the super-powered siblings than the rest of his castmates.

The show became a break-out role for him, although the actor was already known for his roles in "Jane the Virgin" and "Sicario: Day of the Soldado."

So his net worth is estimated to be only around $500,000. Surprisingly, Castañeda was oblivious about how popular "The Umbrella Academy" comic books were when he first read for the role.

He did his best to bring his character to life on screen, and he trained hard so he felt confident enough with his knives that everyone would feel safe on set.

Fortunately, in Season 2 he met Lila, who brought out a more light-hearted side to the traditionally gruff Diego. David revealed that he really enjoyed working with Ritu Arya, and they actually became good friends.

Before filming, Castañeda offered to rehearse with her, and they started developing their characters and the parallel story that they both share. He said:

"Ritu is an amazing actress. I feel like every time we did a scene, and that's not affecting the other cast, who are incredible, but when I was working with her, I didn't have to put on anything. It was a wonderful experience."

Within minutes of Lila appearing on the screen, it's hard to imagine "The Umbrella Academy" without her. You might have seen this British actress in the series "Humans," where she portrayed Flash, and, most recently, in the rom-com "Last Christmas."

Just like Castañeda, Ritu had never heard of the show, but when she looked it up before the audition, she was like - "This is awesome! I want in!" This role became a totally new experience for her. She shared:

"I was just like fighting three times a week. I had never done anything like that before, I'd never done any sort of stunts or gun training."

EMMY RAVER-LAMPMAN AS ALLISON

In real life, the 30-year-old actress can put a spell on virtually anybody with her magical voice. Before joining the cast of "The Umbrella Academy," Emmy Raver-Lampman appeared in several Broadway musicals. Her singing resume is stacked with pretty powerful roles, including Angelica in "Hamilton."

The exact amount of Emmy Raver-Lampman's earnings isn't disclosed. Some of the sites suggest that she has a net worth of $100 000, while others report that she's worth an impressive $5 million.

Raver-Lampman is protective about her personal life, but we know that on the set of "The Umbrella Academy," she became friends with her co-stars.

In a recent interview with Harper's Bazaar, she revealed that the whole cast gets along very well and that they even take weekend trips and see each other when they're not shooting.

"I see Justin all the time." – she said. - "And whenever Tom visits L.A., sometimes he stays with me. Every time I'm in New York, I hang out with Ellen multiple times. We're genuinely friends and do really get along."

TOM HOPPER AS LUTHER

Tom Hopper, who portrays Luther, is happily married. The British actor is 35, which makes him the oldest of his on-screen siblings. Although the actor has always been fond of sports, and definitely has an excellent physique, he prefers roles that are not appearance-based.

Speaking about his role, Hopper explained: "I loved that idea of someone being so huge in stature and looking so strong, but inside he's so small and timid and sensitive and thoughtful and lonely. It's so much more interesting playing a character like that!"

The second season of the show gave Hopper even more opportunities to show his acting skills because his character has done a lot of growing up. Also, Luther has become more comfortable in his body – and that was a challenge for Hopper.

Hopper's reported net worth is around $5 million, but not all of it comes from "The Umbrella Academy." He also played Sir Percival in "Merlin," Billy Bones in "Black Sails," and Dickon Tarly in "Game of Thrones."

ELLEN PAGE AS VANYA

In a recent interview with Variety, the actress shared that she enjoyed being able to finally play a happy Vanya for a change. Ellen Page revealed that it felt like she was playing a different character in some ways because Vanya had a new lightness and confidence this season.

This plotline was pretty amazing, as, in real life, Page is married to a beautiful professional dancer and choreographer, Emma Portner. Their romance reminds us of Vanya and Sissy; in a way, they tied the knot after only six months of dating.

The two met on the set of "The Umbrella Academy," and it was none other than Portner who choreographed that romantic dance of Allison and Luther's in Season One.

She has quite an impressive resume and has appeared in films like "Inception" and the "X-Men" franchise. Page's net worth is estimated at around $14 million.
