Tough guy actor Charles Bronson had a decidedly tough net worth of approximately $12.5 million before he made his final great escape to the sky. But a net worth like that didn't come easy – he had to kick ass all around the globe, and in several different languages. He made his film debut way back in 1951 – an uncredited part in You're in the Navy Now. After that, he continued to work in small parts in movies, including as Vincent Price's "deaf mute" henchman Igor in the 3D horror classic House of Wax. A year later, in 1954, he changed his name from Buchinsky to Bronson in order to escape a perceived stigma associated with an Eastern-European last name. Then, in 1960, he landed a role in what would become his breakout film: The Magnificent Seven, also starring Steve McQueen. From there, Bronson would continue to be a familiar face in other ensemble action/adventure movies like The Great Escape. He finally broke out as a solo star in Death Wish, which led to his being a real star with smaller studios, starring in sequels to his signature movie and other action movies unrelated to Death Wish. After his death in 1998, he remains a cult favorite among movie fans today.
