“I think the public doesn’t understand the rigors of shooting a show for an actor, much less when you’re on location and away from home. At one point I approached Aaron [Korsh, the showrunner,] and said: “It’s not that I don’t love the show and love Jessica, who is my alter ego. But my life is my life, and I need to take care of it.” And everyone was completely supportive.”

Gina is not only able to grab the attention from her audience but is also able to accumulate the net worth of $5 million.
