Brad Dourif Net Worth is $6 Million (as of 2020)
The actor we are going to talk about has described himself as follows: „I am the type of person that once I make a decision, I must execute. Maybe I am a perfectionist in this way.“. Perhaps that is the reason why Brad Dourif net worth already amounts to $3 million. He decided to become an actor and he did his best to become one of the best actors there is. As his talent and skill developed, Brad Dourif net worth grew accordingly. This is a very brief and vague summary of his career, so let’s stop and take a closer look at it.

Brad started acting as a child, appearing on various school productions, and went on to join the community theatre. While speaking about the education and training he has received over the following years, Brad has said: “I’m formally trained, I don’t know what classically trained really means. I’ve worked with Sanford Meisner. And I’ve worked at Circle Rep with Marshall W. Mason and Lanford Wilson and some really good people. I was lucky. I had a lot of really good influences.“ In 1975, not so long after finishing his formal training Brad landed his first movie role and earned critical acclaim almost right away. The portrayal of Billy Bibbit, one of the most prominent characters in the movie One Flew over the Cuckoo‘s Nest, has garnered the young actor the prestigious BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role and Golden Globe. He was also nominated for Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
As he gained critical recognition, Brad Dourif net worth growth intensified, but for some reason he did not manage to become a popular and well-paid Hollywood actor. He did not have much trouble getting roles, but most of them were just supporting or in movies built on relatively small budget. Anyway, I don‘t think that this actually bothers (or ever bothered) the actor, because for him, acting is not all about money. Brad is quoted saying: “The universe is dynamic. When we are creative, we are the most alive and in touch with it.“ So for Dourif, job is also a means of self-realization and harmonizing his soul with the universe. And he is always waiting for the chance to portray a character that has something central about him; for something that is enlightening or moving, or something with depth.
Now speaking about some of his latest achievements, in 2002 Brad has portrayed Grima Wormtongue in hit film Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Some two years later he appeared as Dr. Amos “Doc” Cochran on Deadwood. Both of these roles received widespread critical acclaim and contributed to the growth of the overall Brad Dourif net worth.
