Sofia Pernas is a Hollywood star married to Justin Hartley, an actor she met while starring in "The Young and The Restless" in 2015. She was born on July 31st, 1989, in Fes, Morocco, and traces her roots to Galicia. The actress has made a decent net worth throughout her acting career. So, how did she achieve a net worth of $1.5 million? How does it influence her current lifestyle and life perspective? Let's dive deeply into her early life and career to get the answers to these questions.

Early Life

Pernas was born on July 31st, 1989, in Fes, a Northeast city of Morocco. While she's a bit shy about disclosing her parents' names, we can affirm that her father is Galician, while her mother is from Moroccan background. According to TvShowStars, she spent her first five childhood years in Morocco before she and her family relocated to the US. As you already know, the US is dubbed the "land of great opportunities," so all fortunes came in her direction. The actress/model went to the University of California to pursue her Academic and Science degree, graduating in 2015. The actress' proficiency in French, German, English, and Arabic is one of the many advantages she took while pursuing her degree at the university.


Sofia Pernas began her career as a reporter, though it's unclear how much she made while there. At some point, she felt that being a reporter wasn't her dream career goal, so she ventured into acting after being scouted. So, the actress became a model. Sources reveal that her average salary as a model would be $62,400. In 2009, Pernas debuted her acting career for a tv show called "The Immortal Voyage of Captain Drake." She played the role of Isabella Drake, the ex-wife of Luca Santori and ex-girlfriend of drug lord Marco Annicelli in this television show. While there, she learned the ropes of acting, and within two years, she became a professional. She repeatedly says her debut in acting paved the way for even more prominent roles.

Sofia took a two-year sabbatical from acting to establish herself in show business. She re-emerged in 2011, landing her second acting role for a film called "Age of the Dragons," where she played Rachel. That was when she realized that acting was running through her veins. During the same year, she starred in many television shows and movies, including two more TV series- "NCIS" and "Leverage." She mostly played the recurring role of Marine First lieutenant Gabriela Flores on CBS' "NCIS." Come 2014, Pernas played Jenna Wallace on "Roger Corman's Operation Rogue" and Elena on "Indigenous." Her most significant break was when she played Marisa Sierras on the "Young and the Restless" between 2015-2017.

In 2016, Pernas appeared in "Transylvania" as Coriander. The following year, she joined other actors in "The Young and the Restless." After leaving the television show, Pernas signed a one-year acting contract for the telenovela "Jane the Virgin." It looks like being a multi-lingual actress finally paid off when the show's producers chose her for the role. The Moroccan-American actress also appeared in the NBC series "The Brave" from 2017-2018 as the leading actress, alongside Mike Vogel, Noah Mills, Anne Heche, and many more. She played Hannah Archer in this television series. After leaving this television series, Pernas appeared on "The Green Ghose as Karina and "He Knows Your Every Move as Ramona in 2018. Come 2019, she played Lexi Vaziri on CBS' series "Blood and Treasure." She still plays in this movie to date. In 2020, she played Princess Anna in a Disney+ film, "Secret Society of Second-born Royals."

According to AllStar Bio, though Pernas remained secretive about how much she made while acting in "The Young and the Restless," sources reveal that she would have earned around $50,110. It was the first television show that gave her a big name. Currently, she's on "Blood & Treasure" and the film "Secret Society of Second Born Royals." Fans have come out in large numbers to express how much they can't get enough of her. In a 2019 interview with Brief Take, Pernas admitted that everyone loved her performance in "Blood and Treasure," which inspires her. She also went to an interview with Modeliste Magazine, revealing that playing powerful roles gives her much confidence knowing her fans are watching her.

Personal life

Pernas met her former co-star of "The Young and the Restless," Justin Hartley, in May 2020. They began dating and married in March 2021. According to Hot Celebrity News, Pernas credits her marriage involvement with Hartley for boosting her career. She knows how talented she is in acting, so it's only a matter of time before she gets more comfortable in the entertainment industry. As of 2021, Hartley's net worth stood at $7 million, which accounts for his role in "This Is Us" and other on-screen projects. It's believed that he earns $250,000 per episode on the show for playing Kevin Pearson. His paycheck rose from $40,000 per episode to that after the show's first season. Sources reveal that the Morocco-born star lives in Los Angeles in a crib worth $687,700, based on the current market price. The actress is also big on Instagram, where she often posts pictures of her work and vacation. She has more than 335,000 followers. One of her pictures shows her relaxing on a boat in San Diego, proving how much she can have fun with her millions.


Sofia Pernas' net worth of $1.5 million is attributed to her primary sources of income; modeling and acting in high-rated films and television series. As you've noticed, she's a workaholic and spends most of her time modeling and acting projects. She likes to take a sabbatical once in a while to travel the world. While she's a bit secretive about her love life and nuclear family's details, her net worth of $1.5 million and involvement in the entertainment industry are enough reasons to support her career. You can learn a thing or two to understand how talent and dedication shape one's career.
