As for the day, Dannie Day Lewis net worth amounts to $50 million and those of you who know that since 1998 this actor has appeared in 5 films only, might find this strange. However, it is not strange at all if you also know that Dannie is one of the most acclaimed actors in his generation, holding three Academy Awards for the Best Actor and variety of other accolades. Just to give you a glimpse on how recognized this actor actually is, let me tell you that the number of his Academy Awards and nominations amount to 5, Bafta Awards and nominations – 6, Critic’s Choice Awards and nominations – 5, Golden Globe Awards and nominations – 7, Satellite Awards and nominations – 4 and Screen Actors Guild Awards and nominations – 5. Do you still think that Dannie Day Lewis net worth is sort of “unjustified”? I guess not… Now let’s take a closer look at the early life and professional career of this actor.
|Net Worth:||$50 Million|
Dannie was in close contact with art ever since he was a child: he was born in a family of English actress Jill Balcon and poet Cecil Day-Lewis. While speaking about his departed father, the actor has said: „It’s a source of great sadness to me that my father died without having seen me do anything worthwhile. He was constantly having to make excuses for me.“ The poet passed away in 1972, when his son was only 15 years old, long before Dannie has received his first Academy Award. At least the future millionaire has made his movie debut while his father was still alive: in 1971 he appeared as a „Child Vandal“ on Sunday Bloody Sunday. Surely, this role did not have any effect on Dannie Day Lewis net worth and following this debut he did not return to movies until 1981.
We will soon name the movies that won Dannie the most prestigious of his accolades and turned him into a living legend. But before we do that, I want you to know one thing: Day Lewis rarely accepts a role, but when he does, he is completely dedicated to it. The actor often remains completely in character during the whole duration of the shooting of his films, even if this is adversely affecting his health. Now the five movies that I would like to point out as his greatest ones are My Left Foot, There Will Be Blood, Lincoln, In the Name of the Father, Gangs of New York. The first three of them has garnered Dannie Academy Awards, while the other two has earned him nominations for this same prestigious award. Needless to say, each of these spectacular films has made a solid contribution to the current Dannie Day Lewis net worth.
