About Davis Schwimmer
As for the day, Davis Schwimmer net worth amounts to $80 million, making him one of the richest men on television. Personally, I admire this man because I find his personality somewhat similar to mine. For example, the actor is quoted saying that he spends only half of his life living it, and then the other half analyzing it – just like me. Then the majority of normal people admire this actor for the role he has played on cult television series Friends. For ten years, from 1994 to 2004, he has portrayed Ross Geller on this show. The character was so popular and had such an extended history, that if you look at its “biography” on Wikipedia or some of the other websites, you will notice it is much longer then the articles dedicated for most real-life people! But the brilliant character he created on Friends is not the only reason to admire this actor. He had to overcome many obstacles to get the role on what turned out to be one of the most successful sitcoms of the 1990s and he has done a tremendous job after this show. So let’s look at the brief overview of his career and point out the main sources of David Schwimmer net worth.
The actor was born in a family of two attorneys who have always pressured their kids, David and his sister, to achieve: to get good marks, to finish studies at a university and generally speaking, to keep it going. And David did all that, even though sometimes it was more difficult than he could have expected. He graduated from Northwestern University with a Bachelor in theater and speech in 1988 and for most of the 1980s he was living in Los Angeles as an unemployed, struggling actor. It was only in 1994, when he was invited to join the main cast of Friends, that Schwimmer has achieved a worldwide recognition. I think it remains true to say that the salary for this show is the main source of the current David Schwimmer net worth, because during the ten seasons each of the friends has earned a whopping $88.4 million, and this is in salary only.
After the series ended in 2004, Schwimmer appeared in a few movies, did some voice roles and sporadic acting jobs on various television series. However, he has never returned to full-time acting and started working as a producer and director instead (he started doing this while still filming for Friends and even directed a several episodes of this show). Now he is credited for directing Americana, Nevermind Nirvana, New Car Smell, some episodes of Joey, Little Britain USA and some of the other television/movie projects. Each of them is responsible for a part of current David Schwimmer net worth.
