Peyton List's net worth: How much the Cobra Kai actress is really worth

If you haven't watched Cobra Kai, the sequel to the Karate Kid films, on Netflix, you're missing out. People love the show so much that it's no wonder its stars, including Peyton List, are bound to cash in on the hype. List was a former Disney Channel star, but as more and more people watch Cobra Kai and her other projects, it won't be long before she's a household name — with the bank account to prove it.

She's already doing just fine, which is a good thing, considering she's worked almost all of her life. She was born in 1998, but by 2002, she'd already landed her first role on the soap opera As the World Turns. In 2004, she appeared in Spider Man 2 as "Little Girl Playing On Steps," per IMDb. A number of small parts followed until 2008, when she nabbed a recurring role in the show Cashmere Mafia. List gained national fame starring as Emma Ross in the Disney shows, Jessie and Bunk'd. You may also recognize her from Confessions of a Shopaholic, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies, and many, many more. 

What kind of wealth has she accumulated after all those years on the job? Let's just say, she could probably retire now if she wanted to. 

Peyton List spends her money in moderation

Cobra Kai star Peyton List has been acting since she was a child, and it has certainly paid off for her. According to Celebrity Net Worth, List is worth around $7 million, which is pretty great for a woman who celebrated her 22nd birthday in 2020. In addition to acting, List is already diversifying her revenue streams by dabbling in music, too. According to Fashionista, she released a pop single called "Liar Liar" in 2018 and another titled "Don't Cry" in 2019. Though she's certainly got some disposable income, the young star said she's careful not to go overboard, particularly when it comes to her wardrobe.

"I usually only try to buy one or two things when I go out shopping," she told Fashionista. "I try to keep my closet more limited [to a] small amount of things that I really love. I buy everything in-store — I love to try things on and see it in person, especially with shoes, which I feel is so weird because all my friends really only online shop now. List also revealed one particularly fascinating fashion tradition. She said she likes to buy a pair of shoes when she travels to work on a project; the shoes become a sort of souvenir that reminds her of the work she's done while wearing them.

Practical, fashionable, talented, and rich? Peyton List is definitely unstoppable.
