American actress Laura Linney is the recipient of two Golden Globe Awards and four Primetime Emmy Awards. She has also been nominated for three Academy Awards and five Tony Awards. As of 2023, Linney has a net worth of about $9 million dollars.
For some of her fans, Laura Linney will always be Mary Ann Singleton of 28 Barbary Lane, the naïve but plucky young girl originally from Cleveland, Ohio in Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City. Linney starred not only in the original series released in 1993, she reprised her role in the 1998 More Tales of the City, the 2001 Further Tales of the City and the 2019 Netflix miniseries, Tales of the City.
On Television, Linney won an Emmy Award for the television film Wild Iris (2001) and also in the sitcom Frasier (2003-2004) and John Adams (2008), and recently she was in the Netflix crime series Ozark (2017).
In films, Linney has starred in quite a few well-received films like Primal Fear (1996), The Truman Show (1998), Mystic River (2003) and Love Actually (2003), Sully and Nocturnal Animals (2016).
In 2020, Linney was in Falling, playing opposite Viggo Mortensen, who directed the film. She also starred in the 2020 The Roads Not Taken, directed by Sally Potter, alongside Javier Bardem and Elle Fanning which had its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival in February 2020. The film was released in March 2020 but was pulled from the theaters after the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world. It was subsequently released in a video-on-demand format in April 2020.
From all of her more than 40 film acting credits, as well as including her appearance in 15 television series, combined with her producing and directing credits, and all of the appearances that she has made as herself on various TV shows. It is estimated that Laura Linney has earned $18 million dollars in total career earnings.
Of that amount, around $2 million is expected to have been paid in business related costs. The remainder, $16 million, will have been taxed at around 43% as Linney has been residing in the state of New York. After tax, it is estimated that her career earnings are at around $9.12 million dollars, having paid $6.88 million dollars in taxes.
Laura Linney was married to fellow actor, David Adkins, between the years of 1995 and 2000. Laura is estimated to have earned more than David and in the event of the divorce settlement, may have had to pay around $500,000 in spousal support.
Laura has since married Marc Schauer and they remain together. They have one child together and Laura’s life seems stable and that has likely extended to her financial habits. In her personal life she has likely spent $2-3 million dollars of her career earnings but also probably possesses assets valued at around $1-2 million, not including investment assets. In her investments, she may have earned investment returns of $1.5 million dollars. Therefore, it is estimated that Laura Linney has a net worth of around $9 million dollars.
