Carroll O'Connor Net Worth
Carroll O'Connor Net Worth: Carroll O'Connor was an American actor, producer and director who had a net worth of $20 million. Born John Carroll O'Connor (August 2, 1924 – June 21, 2001) in the Bronx, New York, he had enjoyed an award-winning stage and screen career that spanned over four decades. O'Connor made his acting beginnings on the stages of European cities like Dublin, London, and Paris. Meanwhile, he graduated from the University of Montana in 1951 with degrees in drama and English, and four years later he crowned his education with a master's degree in speech, again from Missoula. It was in the 1950s, when O'Connor made his breakthrough starring in the Broadway adaptation of James Joyce's novel Ulysses. Shortly after, he also made his TV debut on two episodes of Sunday Showcase (NBC, 1959–1960). This led Carroll O'Connor to appear on subsequent television series as Gunsmoke, Armstrong Circle Theatre, Death Valley Days, The Great Adventure, Dr. Kildare, Premiere, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, among many others. O'Connor was 46 years old when he took the role of Archie Bunker, the endearing bigot who grew to accept diversity (somewhat) on the ground-breaking CBS series, All in the Family (1971-1979). Even though with a typical TV fare premise, the series won the likes of audience, mostly thanks to O'Connor's character. He went on to star in the NBC/CBS TV crime drama In the Heat of the Night (1988-1995), where he played the part of southern Police Chief William (Bill) Gillespie. The end of his career in the late 1990s was marked by playing the father of Jamie Buchman (Helen Hunt) on Mad About You (1992–1999). In addition to winning four Emmy Awards as Archie Bunker, he was also ranked #38 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Stars of All Time in 1996. When Carroll O'Connor died in 2001, he left his beloved wife Nancy Fields O'Connor and his only son Hugh O'Connor.
