What we do know, according to an article by Variety, is that her interest in the art and entertainment world started when she was a child. She was already in ballet school at four, and she excelled there. Later, she joined the National Youth Theatre, honing her performance skills.

After high school, she went to the University of Leeds to study Spanish and spent some time in Barcelona to polish her language skills. She later got a postgraduate degree from the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama.


During her time in Barcelona, a talent scout named Stacey Castro discovered her. Castro had been on a mission to find an actress to play the role of “Lucrezia Borgia” for the 2011 television series The Borgias. Although casting director Susie Figgis didn’t eventually cast her (the role went to Holliday Grainger), Hannah New was offered the role of Rosalinda Fox in the 2010 Spanish period TV show The Time in Between. She acted alongside Adriana Ugarte, Peter Vives, Elvira Minguez, and Alba Flores (Nairobi from Money Heist).

The following year, she got a part in an unaired pilot for a TV show titled Shelter and eventually got another role in Brain Dead 2 alongside David Hasselhoff later that year.

Until 2012, the actress was managed by Stacey Castro. However, they went their separate ways after she joined the main casts of Black Sails, a Starz TV show was written to serve as a prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson’s 1883 novel Treasure Island.

Hannah New played Eleanor Guthrie, Richard Guthrie’s daughter, a strong-willed saloon owner running her father’s illegal businesses in Nassau.

After her contract with Starz ended, she got the role of Queen Leila, in the 2014 Disney live-action film Maleficent, as the mother of Princess Aurora (played by Elle Fanning) alongside Angelina Jolie, Sam Riley, Sharlto Copley, and others.

There were rumors that she was involved with one of her Black Sails colleagues, but neither confirmed the stories about them. Some fans wonder if Hannah New is a Lesbian. This inquiry likely stems from the fact that her Eleanor Guthrie character was into women.

However, if she is or isn’t, we cannot tell because she does not reveal such details to the public. Although, she has also played some straight characters.

Hannah New hot pictures

Following her topless scenes in Black Sails, there has been increased interest in hot photos of Hannah New. Several adult content sites have taken screenshots of these scenes and posted them for viewers,

It is impressive that all of her socials are active, and she posts on them almost every two weeks.

Hannah New Net worth

There are different numbers when it comes to how much Hannah New net worth is. For example, IdolNetWorth claims she is worth $14 million in 2022, but AllFamousBirthday says it is closer to $1.5 million.

The disparity makes it hard to trust any of these numbers, but it is clear that she lives comfortably and can afford to travel frequently. Her source of income appears to be solely from her acting job, as we have not seen mention of either a singing side gig or a brand endorsement deal.

Although, Hannah New could likely be receiving some gigs to promote or wear some brands from time to time.

Latest news on Hannah New

The actress manages to stay out of the news unless it is about a production in which she is participating. Recently, there has been no mention of her in the major news outlet, which is not necessarily bad. Celebs who can find it prefer some level of privacy.


Hannah New is unlike many celebrities today; she has managed to get everyone focused on her acting and stay out of her personal life. With just 12 years of acting under her belt, she has done well. Of course, there is still likely some more acting in her future if she so chooses.

It seems that she is enjoying her life as a not so big of a deal, and she is using her little means to help charity causes; we can’t help but like her.
