Patrick Duffy Net Worth: Patrick Duffy is an American actor who has a net worth of $14 million. Patrick Duffy was born May 17, 1949 in Townsend, Montana. He is best known for his role as Bobby Ewing in the original, long-running CBS primetime soap opera Dallas which debuted in the late '70s (and again in the new version of the show on TNT in 2012). He moved to Los Angeles, California in the early '70s where he spent several years trying to make it as an actor. His big break came in 1976 when he landed the lead part on the science-fiction series Man From Atlantis. On the show, Duffy played Mark Harris, a being from the lost continent of Atlantis who was discovered unconscious on a beach by a research scientist. While he looked human, Harris had webbed hands and feet and could only spend a certain amount of time out of the water. The show only lasted a season, airing from the fall of 1977 to the following spring. His next role would turn out to define his career, though Dallas was not an immediate hit. Despite the show's eventual, almost-cult success, Duffy grew tired of playing the nice guy and left the series in 1985 in search of more adventurous roles. He was 'killed off' in the show. After Duffy's departure, Dallas took a dive in ratings and in 1986 Duffy was convinced to return to the show and to his character as nice guy Bobby Ewing. The show's writers explained Ewing's disappearance with a now-famous shower scene where he reappeared, revealing that his demise had been 'only a dream'. While this tactic was not popular with everyone, it has become a noted part of TV history (just as the cliffhanger 'Who Shot J.R.?' will forever live on in the legacy that is Dallas). Not long after returning to Dallas, Duffy suffered a huge personal tragedy when his parents, Terrence and Babe, were killed during a robbery attempt at their tavern in Boulder, Montana. Out of respect for Duffy and his immense loss, the series' production was briefly paused. In 2012, Duffy, along with fellow original cast members of Dallas Linda Gray and Larry Hagman, joined the reboot of the series. Sadly, in November of 2012, Larry Hagman died from complications of cancer.
