About Charlie McDermott
As for the day, Charlie McDermott net worth is getting close to $1 million. As he is about to join the club of millionaires, we thought it is about time we speak about his professional career and personality. So here are some facts and stories from behind the scenes that you might find interesting.
First of all, even though he has been working since the age 14, Charlie does not consider himself a former child actor. That‘s because his job was only sporadic and he was still living with his family in Pennsylvania. While Charlie‘s acting talent was clear since he was a kid, the boy was never particularly good at school. And as far as we know this wasn‘t because he lacked intelligence or talent. It was just that he was absolutely uninterested in school material and did not have any motivation to study. The actor is quoted saying: „I didn’t like school. I was pretty much daydreaming all the time. I would be in the back of the class writing down random stories and stuff that would have nothing to do with school. I only lasted two years in high school before I moved out to L.A.“ I could bet that their teenager’s decision to quit school and move to Los Angeles to pursue a vague and distant dream of becoming a famous actor has cost a lot of nerves to his parents. However, it also seems logical to assume that now, when Charlie McDermott net worth is growing with speed, they are no longer mad at him for making this bold move.
Anyway, I must note that Charlie McDermott net worth started to grow even before he left his home in Pennsylvania for good. He made his movie debut in 2004, appearing on The Village as a 10-year-old-boy (keep in mind that by that time Charlie was actually 14) and television debut on Windy Acres. Since then the young actor has appeared in quite a few movies, including Keeping Up with the Kids, Disappearances, The Ten, Sex Drive, Hot Tub Time Machine and of course, Frozen River. McDermott’s performance in the last of these movies, which reached the cinemas in 2008, has received a widespread critical acclaim – the young actor was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for the Best Supporting actor.
Charlie‘s career on television took off about a year ago after he gained recognition for the performance on Frozen River. In the late 2000s he started filming as Axl Heck on ABC television series The Middle. The show has already been running for almost five years and it remains quite popular to this day. Having in mind that the actor we have been talking about is part of the main cast, it is not surprising that the salary for The Middle is responsible for the greatest part of Charlie McDermott net worth.
