Jonathan Frakes earned his net worth as an actor, author, and director. While growing up, he was introduced to jazz by his father, and started playing the trombone when he was in fourth grade. As a child he was always friendly, funny and somewhat of an actor, according to a childhood friend. In high school, he played in the band and ran track. In 1970s he worked for Marvel Comics, appearing at conventions in costume as Captain America. He became a member of "The Impossible Ragtime Theater". He did his first off-Broadway acting in Eugene O'Neill's The Hairy Ape.

During the 1980s, Jonathan landed a starring role in a prime-time soap opera, "Bare Essence". He is one of only two Star Trek regulars to appear on four different Star Trek series (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Enterprise). His nickname is "Two-Takes Frakes," for his efficient filming style on the set of Star Trek: First Contact. When he was preparing for his audition for the role of Commander William T. Riker in Star Trek: The Next Generation, he had to watch videotapes from the original episodes because he knew nothing about the original Star Trek series. In 1996, it was announced that he was to be the director of the next Star Trek film, Star Trek: First Contact. In 1998, he was asked to direct the ninth Star Trek film, Star Trek: Insurrection.
