Luke Goss Net Worth: Luke Goss is an English singer and performer that has a net worth of $16 million dollars. Blessed with good looks and multiple talents, he’s built a strong reputation in the entertainment industry. Born Luke Damon Goss on 29 September 1968, in London, he is merely eleven minutes older than his twin brother, Matt. It was together with Matt that Luke would start the boy band “Bros”, with which they charted thirteen hit singles in the UK. Apart from the popularity they loved, the band split in the early 1990s and Luke moved on to be a part of the “Band of Thieves”. After four singles together with the Robbers, Goss switched to performing as he landed the lead role in the 1996 musical play “Plan 9 From Outer Space”. Next, he appeared in stage musicals like “Grease” and “What a Feeling”. In 2002, Luke had already established himself as a screen actor, featuring in two films that year: David Goyers “ZigZag” and Guillermo del Toros “Blade II”. “Blade II” was, in reality, his first noticeable role. He also had a villains role in the action comedy “The Man” with Samuel L. Jackson and Eugene Levy. After making a string of films, Goss worked again with Guillermo del Toro playing Prince Nuada in the blockbuster “HellBoy 2: The Golden Army”. Among the biggest film events for Luke Goss came in 2010 when he was given the role of Frankestein in “Death Race 2. He went on filming another film for the franchise: “Death Race: Inferno”. These films helped create Goss as an action man. Luke Goss wed backup singer Shirley Lewis. They have been married since 1994 and they have a daughter (really Luke’s stepdaughter) named Carli.

I'm becoming a geek bit by bit. If you don't know what you're talking about with these comic book fans, you're in trouble. (on how being in Blade and Hellboy II has taught him more about comic books than he ever wanted to know.)
I happened to be in L.A. on 9/11, and being here in America when that happened made me realize how much I love this country.
I did a Navy SEAL training programme and kung fu which got me in shape. I was down to 5% body fat. There's a scene in Charlie where I get out of bed and have my underpants on - it's not that glamorous, they're the unsexiest Y-fronts you've ever seen.
I have a home in LA and one in London. To be honest, I spend most of my time in LA. The past 14 months, I've only been in the UK for about 15 days and probably about 2 months in LA. There's not that much filming goes on there so you end up going all over the world and hardly spending any time at home at all.
Americans find my accent difficult. When you're in a diner and you say 'vinegar' they're like 'what?' Then you say it with an American accent and they get what you mean. It's not like you're in an office supply store though - you're in a diner, work it out for God's sake!
I buy American music as it's like the last bastion of music. I sound like an old bastard but that's how I feel. I listen to people like Sting or George Michael from the UK and Missy Elliot from the US - they're people that you know care about the music.
In the UK now you can have a hit record by selling 20 records. It's a cliche but it is like the fast food industry. There are so many brilliant artists out there but in the UK they aren't being signed. I know the Pop Idol thing is big but the turnover is ridiculous. If you have 10 decent artists everybody is making money and the consumer is happy. With Pop Idol the music is shit and they don't sell a biscuit outside of the UK. What keeps it going is beyond me.
