What is Megan Mullally's Net Worth and Salary?

Megan Mullally is an American actress and singer who has a net worth of $25 million. That is a combined net worth with her husband since 2003, fellow actor Nick Offerman. Megan Mullally is best known for her television work. She has appeared on sitcoms such as "Will & Grace," "In the Motherhood," and "Children's Hospital." Over the course of her career, she has won a number of Primetime Emmy Awards out of many nominations. Mullally has also been nominated for Screen Actors Guild Awards and Golden Globe Awards.

Megan Mullally had already established herself as an actress to watch in the Chicago theater scene, before she decided to maker her way out west to pursue a career in film and television.  She was signed by an agent within two weeks, and booked her first role on a series a year later, appearing on "The Ellen Burstyn Show".  That first job led to a steady string of guest starring roles on such shows as "Seinfeld", "Frasier", "Wings", "Ned and Stacy", "Mad About You", "Just Shoot Me!", "Murder, She Wrote", and "Caroline and the City", among others.  She also appeared in such films as "Once Bitten" and "Risky Business".

In 1998, she was cast in the role that would bring her the most widespread fame, as the wisecracking Karen Walker on "Will & Grace".  Her performance would net her two Emmy Awards, three SAG Awards, and multiple Golden Globe nominations.  In the middle of all of that, she married actor Nick Offerman.

Early Life

Megan Mullally was born on November 12th of 1958 in Los Angeles, California. Megan's father, Carter Mullally, Jr., was a contracted actor with Paramount Pictures during the 1950s. At the age of six, Megan relocated with her family to Oklahoma City. During this period, she studied ballet for the first time. Over the course of her youth, Megan fell in love with ballet and continued to perform throughout high school. She eventually studied at the School of American Ballet in New York City.

After graduating from secondary school in Oklahoma City, Megan relocated to Evanston, Illinois, where she attended Northwestern University. Although she studied English literature and art history during this period, she steadily became more and more interested in acting. After her sophomore year, she became heavily involved in Chicago's theatre scene. By her junior year, her hectic schedule of eight shows per week proved unfeasible to balance with school. Megan then dropped out and pursued a career in acting.


Mullally's first major acting gig was a McDonald's commercial alongside John Goodman. She then booked her first TV role in a 1986 episode of "The Ellen Burstyn Show." Further guest-starring roles came with series like "Seinfeld," "Frasier," "Wings," "Ned and Stacey," "Mad About You," "Caroline in the City," "3rd Rock from the Sun," and "Just Shoot Me!" Acting work didn't always come in a steady stream for Megan, and in 2012 she admitted that she "wept" upon landing one role early in her career because she was struggling to pay rent.

In 1998, Mullally landed a much more substantial role in the NBC sitcom "Will & Grace," playing Grace's sarcastic assistant named Karen. This role won her Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in 2000 and in 2006. In addition, she was nominated for the award five other times during this period. She also won three Screen Actors Guild Awards and a number of Golden Globe nominations thanks to her performances in "Will & Grace."

Megan followed up with roles in "30 Rock," "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List," "Campus Ladies," and "Funny or Die." Over the next few years, Mullally became renowned for her numerous guest-starring roles in a number of episodes of "Parks and Recreation" alongside her husband Nick Offerman. In 2009, she booked a starring role in the ABC sitcom "In the Motherhood."

In 2010, Mullally starred in series like "Party Down" and "Children's Hospital." Over the next period, Megan appeared in sitcoms like "Happy Endings" and "Breaking In." In 2012, she booked a voice acting role in the animated series "Bob's Burgers." When "Will & Grace" was rebooted in 2017, Mullally rejoined the cast. Outside of television work, Mullally is an established theatre actor who has appeared in a number of Broadway productions.

Real Estate

In 2012, Megan Mullally and Nick paid $4.15 a home in Bel-Air. Spanning 5,168 square feet, the four-bedroom home sits on the end of a cul-de-sac near the Stone Canyon Reservoir and was built in 1992. Outdoor features include a large swimming pool and views of the surrounding mountains. Vast panels of glass combine with concrete architecture to create a modern, somewhat cold aesthetic. It was also reported that Mullally and her spouse immediately set to work on renovations after purchasing the home.

Before purchasing their new Bel-Air residence, Megan listed her home in Hollywood Hills (also in a cul-de-sac) for a staggering sum of $12.65 million. They had originally purchased the property back in 2003 for just under $4 million. Located in the neighborhood known as "The Bird Streets," the home offers incredible views of the ocean and the city. Mullally's home was featured in a number of publications, including Elle Decor. In 2013, it was reported that the couple had accepted an offer for just under $10 million.
