Ja’net Dubois’ career began in the late 1960s, firstly appearing in the film “A Man Called Adam” (1966), and three years later in the film made for television “J.T” (1969). With the beginning of the next decade, little by little her career began to improve, and she featured in the soap opera “Love of Life” (1970-1972), in the film “Diary of a Mad Housewife” (1970), with Richard Benjamin and Carrie Snodgress in lead roles, “Five on the Black Hand Side” (1973). and “The Blue Knight” (1973), with William Holden and Lee Remick.

During the 1980s, Ja’net continued to feature in several TV series and films, however, usually in minor roles.

Ja’net transferred the momentum from the late 1990s into the early 2000s, appearing in the film “Waterproof” alongside April Grace and Burt Reynolds, and “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle” (2003), with Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz, increasing further her net worth. Ja’net has also been recognized as a voice actress, lending her voice to characters from such animated TV series as “The PJs” (1999-2001), and “As Told by Ginger” (2000-2004), which also added to her net worth.
