Marcia Cross Net Worth: Marcia Cross is an American actress who has a net worth of $30 million dollars. Born March 25, 1962 in Marlborough, Massachusetts, Marcia Cross is best known for her early role as Dr. Kimberly Shaw on the Fox nighttime soap opera Melrose Place (1992-97) and her role as Bree Van de Kamp on the ABC comedy/drama series Desperate Housewives (2004-2012). In 1989, Aaron Spelling cast Cross in the unsold pilot Temporarily Yours and remembered her when an actress was needed in 1992 to play Dr. Kimberly Shaw on Melrose Place. While simultaneously appearing in Twelfth Night in San Diego, Cross began her five-season run as Kimberly, in which her character went from respected doctor to jilted lover to kidnapper to mad bomber to terminally ill patient. Cross later departed the series and earned a Master's Degree in psychology at LA's Antioch University. In 1999, Cross accepted a recurring role on the ABC sitcom Boy Meets World and two guest spots on King of Queens in 2002 and 2003, appearing in between in episodes of the hit series Ally McBeal, Spin City, Touched By an Angel, Profiler and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. She also appeared in a string of low-profile films and telepics before returning to series television on The WB's family drama Everwood, playing Emily VanCamp's physician mother during 2003-2004 season. But it was the following year when Cross was cast in what would likely be her most memorable role on Desperate Housewives that she would experience her true breakout role with her portrayal of a very proper, Martha Stewart-esque Wisteria Lane homemaker/control-freak Bree Van De Camp, whose picture-perfect world hid extremely dysfunctional familial relationships. The mega-popular show breathed new life into Cross' career, and she earned a Golden Globe nomination in 2005 for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series—Musical or Comedy.
