Casper Van Dien hails from a military family; he was born to Casper Robert Van Dien, Sr., a fighter pilot in the US Navy, and Diane, who worked as a nursery school teacher. He spent a part of his childhood in Ridgewood, New Jersey, in Van Dien Avenue, a street which was named after his relative. He attended the St. Petersburg campus of the Admiral Farragut Academy, after which he enrolled at Florida State University in Tallahassee, where he began boxing training and was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.

Casper’s acting career began in the early 1990s, appearing in cameo roles in several productions including “Menu For Murder” (1990), “Freshman Dorm” (1992), and “One Life To Live” (1993-1994). In 1994, he was cast as Griffin Stone in the TV series “Beverly Hills, 90210”, which increased his net worth and his popularity by a large margin, as it then promoted him into new notable roles, such as the ones in films “Starship Troopers” (1997), “Tarzan And Lost City” (1998), and “Sleepy Hollow” (1999), with Johnny Depp and Christina Ricci.

With the beginning of 2000s, his career reached a whole new level, securing new roles in popular productions, which only increased further his net worth. His first role in the new millennium was as Chandler Williams in the TV series “Titans” (2000-2001). Casper also starred in several films made for television, such as “The Vector File” (2002), “Windfall” (2003), “Skeleton Man” (2004), “The Fallen Ones” (2005), “The Curse Of King Tut’s Tomb” (2006), “One Hot Summer” (2008), among others, all of which have contributed to his net worth.

He also featured in several TV series, including “Watch Over Me” (2006-2007), and “Monk” (2008-2009), which also represented a large part of his income.

Subsequently, Casper’s career became even more successful in the 2010s, appearing in such productions as “Born To Ride” (2011), “The Pact” (2012), “Mortal Combat: Legacy” (2013), “Con Man” (2015), “Storage Locker 181” (2016), among others. With all these appearances his net worth was certainly rising.

Most recently he has been featured in the films “Star Raiders: The Adventures Of Saber Raine”, “Last Seen In Idaho”, and “Isra”, which are scheduled for release in 2016. Casper will also appear in “Garrison 7: The Fallen” and its sequel “Garrison 7” (2017), which will certainly increase further his net worth and popularity.

If to talk about his personal life, Casper Van Dien has been married twice. His first wife was Carrie Mitchum, granddaughter of actor Robert Mitchum, from 1993 to 1997; they have two children. Later, he married actress Catherine Oxenberg in 1999, but they filed for divorce in 2015; they are the parents of two children. In 2005, Casper and Catherine had their own reality TV series called “I Married A Princess”.
