While several iconic shows graced the TV screens of a generation, such as Wizards of Waverly Place, That’s So Raven, and Lizzie McGuire one show stood out to all those who were tuned in to that era of the Disney Channel: The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, starring then break out stars of Friends acclaim, Dylan and Cole Sprouse.
While just 11 years old while shooting the first season of the show, the dynamic duo was cashing a lot of money at a young age. Their per-episode pay would be something that every 11-year-old would dream of, given how much it added up to per head net worth by the time the show had finished its run after 3 seasons and approximately 87 episodes.
Dylan and Cole Sprouse had accumulated quite the amount at the end of their Suite Life run
While the actors were pretty young, the duo earned about $20,000 per episode, according to the Cosmopolitan. Featuring 87 episodes for the Disney Channel, Suite Life of Zack and Cody lasted 3 seasons in total. At the end of its run, both actors had a combined income of $3.4 million, which is about $1.7 million per Sprouse twin.
Cole Sprouse also starred as Ben, Ross’s son with his ex-wife in NBC’s Friends. While it is not known how much the actor earned from the show, given the number of times the show has run begs one to think about the residuals that the Riverdale actor might be receiving (and probably will continue receiving for a long time).
The Twins’ Net Worth reflects the boost Suite Life gave them
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the twins together have a net worth of $13 million, a far cry from their $1.7 million a-head payday after 3 seasons of Suite Life. While Dylan has largely left the acting scene, Cole is still looking at acting work, featuring in teen romances like Five Feet Apart and hit CW shows like Riverdale.
While the actors have long since moved on from their time at the Tipton Hotel, it is great to see such young bright talent look for the diverse kinds of work like Cole and Dylan do. As of 2017, Dylan runs a brewery with partners, where he is the brewmaster. Cole has taken a degree in archeology while maintaining a keen interest in photography.
