Furness was raised in Melbourne, studying at the Methodist Ladies’ College until 1973. Two years later, in 1975 she made her television debut in the Australian police drama “Division 4”. She attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, graduating in the early 1980s. After a brief stint of acting in America, she returned home, making her Australian movie debut in 1986’s “Jenny Kissed Me”, top billed as the character of “Carol”, and so establishing her net worth.

In 1988, Furness earned a Golden Space Needle Best Actress Award for her performance in “Shame”, and a string of steady work followed, on both the big and small screen. Recent movie appearances include 2009’s “Blessed”, and as a voice actress in 2010’s “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole”. She was also a voice actress in 2013’s “Phineas and Ferb”, in which she provided various additional voices. Her most recent acting credit is in the Australian TV crime series “Hyde and Seek”, in which she plays the recurring role of Claudia Rossini, contributing to her overall wealth.

In 1995, Furness met her husband-to-be, Hugh Jackman, on the set of a TV show, “Correlli”. Furness was the star of the show, Jackman appearing in a very early role in his career. The two married on the 11th of April, 1996, in Victoria. Jackman is a highly successful Hollywood actor with a large net worth. There have been various stories over the years about the couple splitting, however, their 20 year marriage and relationship remains intact, and they have spoken about their happiness together in several interviews.

In addition to her acting career, Furness has producer credits on four projects, including the “An Aussie…” series. She wrote and directed the short film, “Standing Room Only”, produced in 2003, and again in 2005 as a segment in the movie “Stories of Lost Souls”. These projects have added somewhat to her net worth also.

In her personal life, Furness has endured tragedy, suffering two miscarriages. She took the decision to adopt with her husband, a boy born in 2000, and a girl born in 2005. She created and was patron of the National Adoption Awareness Week. Due to her work campaigning for the streamlining of the adoption process, she was named New South Wales Australian of the Year in 2014. She has also done work for orphans outside Australia, performing the role of World Vision ambassador, an Evangelical Christian aid organization that works in more than 90 countries to provide emergency relief, education, and economic help to those in need. At the UN Women for Peace Association Awards in 2017, she was awarded the Leadership Award, by actress Cate Blanchett. She has stated that if she were not an actress, she would have liked to have been an interior designer.

1You know, I'm still deciding what I'm going to be when I grow up.
2My kids don't slow down, but they like to hang just with us, with mum and dad. They play with us and we play, too.
3The kids think we're wacky. Mum and Dad are in showbiz - they don't know any other way. They've grown up travelling all over the world and are getting a worldly education. My son is 12 and he can speak eloquently on religions and cultures.
4There's nothing more romantic after not seeing your husband for four months than to have our first night back together, on a Broadway stage, with 12 million people watching.
5My most amazing discovery was becoming a mother. It changed everything. I can't imagine my life without these little beings.
6If you have a good self-esteem, you can be generous, you can give back and you can be productive in the world.
7I only eat organic. I love salads and believe food is our best medicine. My son is so brainwashed, he thinks McDonald's is the devil.
8If I wasn't an actress, I'd be a designer. I love interior design and inventing things that are practical but also beautiful - looking at a space and creating magic.
9I know I'm being judged, and anyone who works in the public eye will get some negativity at some point. It can be tough and it hurts. I can be very tough on myself. Occasionally, I hear or read something cruel and I'm shocked.
10My secret indulgent food is dessert. I have an incredible sweet tooth - chocolate pudding with vanilla ice-cream or trifle and pavlova. I do love dessert.
