Nichelle Nichols
Had An Impressive
Net Worth
At Her Death
Actress Nichelle Nichols died of natural causes, with the news hitting her official website on July 31. The “Star Trek” star left an impressive net worth, thanks to her time on the big and small screen and her convention appearances.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Nichelle Nichols' net worth at the time of her death was $500,000. The outlet suggests the actress made anywhere between $10,000 and $50,000 for any one convention appearance, which would be determined by her role in the event and the length of the appearance.
This net worth figure is also impacted by her over 60 acting credits and her work as a singer. Nichols famously toured with Duke Ellington and Lionel Hampton in the late ‘60s, and after she made a name for herself on "Star Trek," Nichols would go on to work with NASA in recruiting women and minorities into their programs.
