Sterling K. Brown is an African-American actor and model. He has been in the acting business since 2001 but is primarily known for his role in the first season of the thriller-anthology television series The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Criminal History. His role in the series earned him an Emmy award and brought him even greater fame than he had previously enjoyed.
His portrayal of Randall Pearson in the NBC drama This Is Us earned Sterling his second Emmy as well as a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award. Most recently, he appeared in Black Panther and still has some incredible roles to play in 2019.
Bio & Age
Sterling Kelby Brown was born on 5 April 1976 in St. Louis, Missouri, to Sterling Brown Jr., who died in 1986 when the young Sterling was barely 10 years old, and his mother, Aralean Banks Brown
He grew up with four siblings, two sisters and two brothers, Robert and Armand Brown. When he grew up Sterling was called Kelby, but when he was 16 years old he changed his name and preferred to be called Sterling instead. He further explained how this change came about by saying that his mother told him that he made the decision when he was much younger, simply because Sterling has eight letters and Kelby has five. But apparently for the then younger Kelby, a name change meant that he was no longer a child but an adult.
Sterling K. Brown grew up in a Christian home, received his early education at Mary Institute & St. Louis Country Day School and earned a bachelor’s degree in art from Stanford University in 1998. He also earned his master’s degree in fine arts from the Tisch School of the Arts.
After many years of honing his skills at school, Sterling K. Brown began performing directly in the theater with various roles in the local theater. He soon moved on to the big screen, appearing on television shows such as ER, NYPD Blue, JAG, Boston Legal, Alias, and many others. While on television, he regularly appeared in Starved, a comedy sitcom. Growing stronger, he took the bull by the horns and went to the movies with appearances in films like Brown Sugar (2002), Stay (2005), and Trusts the Man (2005).
Despite the many other films and television shows he has been involved in, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and This Is Us seem to be his most celebrated roles to date, mainly because they have earned him the coveted fame and awards he has received for his hard work.
What is His Net Worth?
He may not be as old as one would expect in the world of film, but he has certainly won more than some who have started before him. For all his hard work to accurately portray his character roles, Sterling K. Brown has received several awards and is smiling at the bank. His net worth is currently estimated at $4 million.
We expect this figure to rise in the near future as the star actor still has a few roles left in movies that are sure to become blockbusters.

Not many people know this, but Sterling was once a model. The good-looking star stands tall with glowing dark skin and a pack that will not leave just a few ladies gaping. It’s obvious that he takes his fitness and gymnastics routines pretty seriously, although he hasn’t revealed anything about how he does it. He is six feet tall.
