About Ed Harris
As for the day, Ed Harris net worth amounts to $30 million and if you have been following his career, you would probably agree that unlike so many men in Hollywood, he really deserved this fortune. And it is not just that during his career, which started in the late 1970, Harris has earned 95 acting credits (there is plenty of actors who have been really productive but never even once made a significant performance). It is that this actor has been brilliant in every movie he appeared in! And if you do not trust my judgment, trust this fact: Ed has been nominated for an Academy Award four times and won variety of other accolades. In this article, we are going to tell you the story of Ed Harris net worth growth, but first, let us tell you how in the world he became an actor in the first place.
Ed has been playing sports ever since he was a little kid and not only he has enjoyed this activity, he was also good at it. However, when the future-millionaire turned 18 something changed. Sports were no longer enough for him and the teenager started looking for something to replace this hobby. What encouraged him to learn acting was a play he saw in Oklahoma. And as soon as he appeared in his own play, Harris knew that this is what he is supposed to do with his life. In one of his interviews the star has said: “As soon as I went on stage, I wanted to do nothing else with my life but act. I always liked the attention that playing sports had brought, but acting fulfilled that need even better.“ By the way, I love that unlike so many of his colleagues, Harris does not even try to pretend that the need for attention and admiration was not one of the factors that encouraged him to become an actor…
