The Net Worth of Daniel Lissing
How rich is Daniel Lissing? As of late-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is now over $500,000, earned through a successful career in acting. Aside from his television work, he’s also appeared in a few feature films and many short films. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Very little is known about Daniel’s childhood, family and education, nor as to how or why he came to develop a strong interest in acting. He got his first small role in 2001, in the Australian series “Pizza”, but his fame started to grow significantly when he was cast as a guest in the popular long-running Australian TV series “Home and Away”, in which he played the firefighter Dave Elder. The soap opera debuted in 1988, and follows the lives of residents in the fictional seaside town of Summer Bay, initially focused on the Fletcher family, but subsequently introducing many other characters as well.
The show has been controversial due to its incorporation of adult themes such as addiction, teen pregnancy, and rape. The show is considered one of Australia’s most successful media exports. After his run with that show, he appeared as a guest in several other series including “Out of the Blue”, and “Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities”. He also played the character Ryan in the police drama “Cops L.A.C.” In 2008, he had a recurring role in “Packed to the Rafters” which follows the lives of the Rafter family as they face issues in work and life.
Crownies and Career Prominence
In 2011, Lissing was cast in a recurring role in the series “Crownies”, which revolves around a group of fresh law school graduates working as public prosecutors, also known as Crown Prosecutors, working directly for the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions or DPP. This led him to more prominent roles including starring in “Last Resort” for a year, aired on the ABC and created by Shawn Ryan and Karl Gajdusek. However, it was short lived as no further seasons were ordered after its initial 13 episode run.
In 2014, he was cast as Jack Thornton, a main role as a Mountie in “When Calls the Heart”, is a drama series inspired by the Janette Oke book of the same name and aired on Hallmark, co-starring Erin Krakow, Maggie Grace and Stephen Amell. Around this time, he had a few film projects, including in “The Cure” which follows the story of a research scientist who discovers that her company has developed a cure for cancer. He also starred in “John Doe: Vigilante”, in which he appears alongside Jamie Bamber.
While still continuing to work on the show “When Calls the Heart”, Daniel also had numerous other television projects, including “Eye Candy” which was a short lived series based on the novel by R. L. Stine, and follows a tech genius played by Victoria Justice looking for a serial killer in New York. In 2015, he appeared in a few episodes of “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce”, depicting a self-help author who finds new adventures and friends as she faces an impending divorce. Subsequent seasons were re-named depending on the theme of the season.
In 2017, he then had a guest role in the series “Timeless”, which is about a team that time travels to stop a mysterious organization from altering the course of history, playing the role of outlaw and leader of the James-Younger Gang, Jesse James. One of his latest projects is an appearance in the series “Blindspot” which aired on NBC, and tells the story of a mysterious tattooed woman who is found naked inside a travel bag with no recollection of her identity or past – her tattoos contain clues to crimes they need to solve.

For his personal life, nothing is known of Lissing’s romantic relationships, if any. There are rumors that he is dating or in a relationship but they have never been confirmed. He shared a lot of personal pictures with actress Erin Krakow during their work together in the series “When Calls the Heart”, but a relationship between the two has never been confirmed. Many sources state that they are only good friends, and are not actually dating.
Aside from his acting work, he is known to be a singer and a guitar player, having performed in numerous public events, including in East Timor and the Solomon Islands as a service to Australian troops serving overseas – he’s known to be very active in terms of supporting the military and peacekeeping efforts, so earning recognition from the Australian Defense Force. Colleagues have mentioned that he has a lot of focus when it comes to his career, and is a down to earth person.
