Smollet has five siblings, and later they all became a part of his acting career, as they starred in the TV series “On Our Own” in 1994. Smollett`s career began rather early, as he started to shoot commercials in 1987 for the national network in NYC. However, his break-out role which affected his net worth and fame was in the film “Mighty Ducks” in 1992 along with Emilio Estevez.

Following the success of his debut appearance, in 1993, he starred in the TV miniseries “Queen” as the son of the main character, which starred Halle Berry. In 1994 came another success, the mentioned TV series “On Our Own” which featured his siblings, which aired until 1995 on the ABC. In addition, in 1994, he also appeared in the film “North”, which was directed by Rob Reiner and featured Elijah Wood.

After the ending of the TV series “On Our Own”, Smollett’s career as an actor stagnated for a while, as he disappeared from the media. However, he returned to the entertainment industry in 2012, in the film “The Skinny”. The film influenced greatly his fame and net worth, as it was critically acclaimed, and it brought many rumors about Smollett’s sexuality, as it was intended for the LGBT community. The film influenced the future of his career, as he earned a role in the main cast of the TV drama series “Empire”, aired on Fox since 2015, as Jamal Lyon, another member of the LGBT community.

To talk further about his success, he has been nominated several times for prestigious awards, which include Best Actor for his appearance in the “Empire”.

Adding to his net worth and popularity, Smollett has also managed to expose his singing talents, as he has released one EP so far, in February 2012, and since then, Smollett has been gaining signature for his involvement in the music industry. In early 2015, he signed a deal with “Columbia Records”, and it was announced that Smollet will release an album in the near future. Furthermore, his singing talents have also been recognized in the “Empire” as he was featured on its soundtrack for the first season.

To talk about his private life, there were many rumors about Smollett’s sexuality, due to the nature of his roles. In 2015 while being a guest on the show at Ellen DeGeneres, he admitted his affection towards the same sex.

#Quote
1 My family is from Elmhurst, Queens, 54th Avenue, but I was born in Northern California. It's really funny, you know, [my bio] says 'Brazil' making me feel really exotic and cultured, but actually, I was born in Santa Rosa, California. I'm from Sonoma County, and they're saying 'Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.'
