Hollywood star Fassbender (38) grew up in Killarney, where his German father ran a restaurant. His mother is from Ireland. Fassbender's 20 movies have grossed €930m at the US box office - inflation adjusted. He was nominated for an Oscar for his portrayal of Steve Jobs. The film tanked at the box office but Fassbender was terrific.
He earns upwards of €4m per movie, presumably taking a few points off the final gross. Big movies for 2016 include X-Men Apocalypse and Assassin's Creed. There's property too. Fassbender paid €1.4m for an office building on Cork's South Mall.
