About Bill Mumy
As for the day, Bill Mumy net worth is estimated at $8 million dollars and this sure is an impressive fortune. On the other hand, we have to remember that he has been active in the entertainment business ever since the 1959. Over his lengthy career Bill has been acting, creating, playing and recording movies, as well as doing variety of other things. Even though he is talented at so many things and has rarely said “no” to an interesting, challenging offer, Bill knows where his heart actually lies: “I’m very lucky to work in so many different arenas of the entertainment industry and I do enjoy them all, but making music – original music – in the studio or live onstage is definitely my favourite thing to do”. In fact, playing music is such an important part of his life, he can hardly walk more than 5 steps without picking up a guitar. And this is not something I have made up, that is what the performer has revealed about his life at home. By the way, this is why he has some 50 guitars around his home.
But guitar is not the only instrument that Mumy can play. He also plays bass, keyboards, banjo, mandolin, harmonica and percussion. During his life Bill has played with the widest range of accomplished musicians, such as America, Shaun Cassidy, Rick Springfield and Robert Haimer. With the latest of them he has recorded 9 albums and released a hit song “Fish Heads”. The video for this song is still mentioned among the greatest music videos ever (for example by Rolling Stone). Bill has also recorded a number of solo albums, such as Dying to Be Heard, In the Current, Pandora’s Box and After Dreams Come True, so I guess you would not be particularly surprised if I said that his music is an important source of Bill Mummy net worth.
But it was not music that turned him into the star on the first place. Bill Mumy net worth started growing at a considerable speed back in the 1960s, when he landed a role in what became a popular television series Lost in Space, where he portrayed Will Robinson, the youngest son of Professor John and Dr. Maureen Robinson. Working on this sci-fi series was a great experience for little Bill, because as the actor has said in one of his intervies, he has been a huge fan of science fiction and comics ever since he was little kid. Later in his life, Bill had a chance to lead on another sci-fi hit, Babylon 5, which he described as one of the most ambitious television series ever made. These two shows are responsible for a considerable part of Bill Mumy net worth.
