About Dominic Monaghan
As for this day, Dominic Monaghan net worth is estimated at $12 million and this is a lot of money, especially considering that this actor was relatively unknown until the 2000s. Most of you have seen him perform as Peter Jackson in The Lord of the Rings, Chris Bradlay/Bolt in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Charlie Pace in an award winning television series Lost. But during his career, which now spans over nearly 2 decades, this actor has appeared in many more shows and movies. At the time I‘m writing these lines IMDb suggests he has 34 acting credits.
Dominic Monaghan net worth started to grow in 1996, as he was cast for television series Hetty Wainthropp Investigates. While filming for this show (the actor has appeared on 27 episodes in total) Dominic has also made his movie debut in Hostile Waters. He ascended to stardom in 2001, as Meriadoc Brandybuck on the Box Office hit The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. This movie, based on the first volume of J. R. R. Tolkien’s cult book, was unanimously praised by critics all over the world. A lot of credits went for the director of the film, Peter Jackson. For example, Time magazine printed a review which stated: “His movie achieves what the best fairy tales do: the creation of an alternate world, plausible and persuasive, where the young — and not only the young — can lose themselves. And perhaps, in identifying with the little Hobbit that could, find their better selves”. But the performance of the actors, including Dominic, received critical praise too. For the performance in this film Dominic was nominated for an Empire Award for Best Debut and Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by the Cast of a Theatrical Motion Picture, shared with some other colleagues.
Dominic Monaghan net worth continued to grow as he appeared in the following films of the same trilogy, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. I think I can safely say that filming for these movies was one of the most extraordinary experiences Monaghan has ever had as an actor. As for one reason, never before he has worked on such a high-profile movie. Secondly, on the set of Lord of the Rings Dominic found some really good friends, which also happened to be A-list Hollywood celebrities. While speaking about Billy Boyd, Elijah Wood, and Orlando Bloom the actor has said: „We all just look after each other, and hopefully that will continue to happen. We’re a brotherhood, a fellowship“. So the fact that Lord of the Rings trilogy has increased Dominic Monaghan net worth a great deal is by far not the only reason why these films were worth doing.
