About David Alan Grier
As for the day, David Alan Grier net worth is estimated at $3 million. He earned this money over more than three decades working in the show business. Although at first this actor gained prominence for his dramatic work, soon he turned towards comedy and proved to be equally talented in this field. David has also tried to pursue a career as a solo singer, but I think it is safe to say that his attempt has failed. This is a brief overview of all of his fields of interest, but let’s take a closer look at his career and the sources of David Alan Grier net worth.
The star has been introduced to theatre by his friend. In one of his interviews David has shared a short story: “A friend of mine had his own theater company, and he jumped me in like I was in a gang. And once I came in, it was just that simple. For the first time in my life, I felt, ‘This is a career, this is a life that I think I can grow old doing.’ It was love at first sight. I loved being on stage and reading these plays. It was great.” Looking at his current status, I think Grier should be really grateful for that friend. After all, he has helped David to find his real mission in life at such a young age!
It was not long after the actor has stepped on the stage that his talent was noticed by critics. In 1981 he received the Theatre World Award and a nomination for Tony Award for the portrayal of Jackie Robinson in a musical The First. The same year he graduated from the Yale School of Drama with a Master of Arts degree. A couple of years later David debuted as a movie actor, with David Rabe’s film adaptation of the play of the same name, Stream. For the portrayal of Roger in this production the young actor received his second prestigious award- Venice Film Festival Award for Best Actor. Following this debut, David has featured in variety in movies and television series, such as A Soldier’s Story, a short-lived situation comedy All Is Forgiven, Amazon Women on the Moon, A Different World, I’m Gonna Git You Sucka and Almost an Angel.
