Liev‘s parents came from two different worlds (figuratively speaking). His father, who was a stage actor and director, came from a wealthy Protestant society. His paternal ancestors, who included German, Swiss-German, Danish, Dutch, English, French, Irish, Norwegian, Belgian, have lived in the United States for generations. Meanwhile Liev‘s mother was born in a family of Polish and Russian immigrants, both of whom belonged to the working class and were devoted communists. She was well educated in Russian literature and named her son after her favorite author Lev Tolstoy. When Schreiber was 4, his parents divorced and his custody was won by his mother. Generally speaking, she was a really weird woman who used to split her time between making papier-mâché puppets and working as a cab driver. According to the critic John Lahr, she had a profound effect on Liev‘s acting style: “To a large extent, Schreiber’s professional shape-shifting and his uncanny instinct for isolating the frightened, frail, goofy parts of his characters are a result of being forced to adapt to his mother’s eccentricities“.
Liev Schreiber net worth started to grow in the mid-1990s, when he appeared in the movies Mixed Nuts, Denise Calls Up, Walking and Talking and Scream. Latter on he gained critical acclaim for the performance in RKO 281, American historical drama. For the portrayal of the leading character in this production he was nominated for Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Miniseries or Television Film and Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie. As for the day, the most important source of Liev Schreiber net worth is his role on television series Ray Donovan. When asked how he ended up on television after building a successful career in Hollywood, the actor said: „I have no idea. Seriously. I didn’t intend to, you know? I didn’t want to do it. I read the pilot, and I really liked it a lot. I thought it was very interesting. I wanted to meet the writer, Ann Biderman.“ The actor has changed his mind eventually and so far it seems like this decision has been good for his career.
