Actress Bryce Dallas Howard, the daughter of director Ron Howard, has an estimated net worth of $9.5 million. The 30 year old started generating her net worth in her most memorable roles in Spider-Man 3 (2007), Terminator Salvation (2009) and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010).
At the age of nine, Howard made her acting debut in her father feature drama, Parenthood (1989). The flame-haired actress also appeared in another of her father's production, Apollo 13.This led to a series of New York plays for several years. Whilst taking on small roles, the Californian-born actress attended New York University's Tisch School of Arts, gaining a BFA in 2003. Howard also attended to a number of drama schools. During this time, she was involved in the Broadway musical, A Tale of The Two Cities, a Charles Dickens classic.
Whilst performing in the comedy play, As You Like It (2003) Howard taught the attention of film director M. Night Shyamalan. Skipping the auditioning stage, he cast Howard for The Village (2004). Howard replaced actress Kirsten Dunst for the role. She received several nominations for her performance, mainly in the Best Breakthrough Performance category.
Howard starred in Manderlay, a sequel to the 2003 film Dogville. Replacing Nicole Kidman, she took on the leading female role. Manderlay received ill reviews and was a box-office flop. The mother of two was reunited with Shyamalan for the 2006 film Lady In The Water. Like Manderlay, Lady In The Water received ill reviews, making a fraction at the box office.
For the second time in her career, Howard was cast in As You Like It, taking on the role of Rosalind in 2006. Things appear to be looking up for the actress, as Kenneth Branagh's version of the play earned her a Golden Globe Award nomination.
Next was Howard's first blockbuster, action movie Spider-Man 3 (2007). She performed many of her stunts- not knowing she was several months pregnant! It was reported that this is the most profitable movie that Howard appeared in.
But the biggest turning point in Howard's acting career was yet to come: she played the role of Victoria in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. The movie made box office history, taking $64 million in ticket sales. Howard received moderate reviews by the critics for her role.
Howard joined forces with her father to produce Restless, a movie which tells the story of a teenage boy and girl who are obsessed with death. In additional to this, Howard is set to make her directorial debut with The Original, which she described as 'the breakfast Club of her generation'. She wrote the screenplay with her brother-in-law.
In 2006, Howard married to actor Seth Gabel. The couple have a son Theodore Norman Howard Gabel, born 2007. It was reported by People magazine that they are expecting their second child in 2011.
