Jeffrey was born to Sandy Thomas and Richard Dean Morgan, and attended Ben Franklin Elementary School before continuing his education at Rose Hill Junior High. While studying at Lake Washington High School, Jeffrey started playing basketball. In the beginning, he looked quite promising, but a knee injury stopped him on the path to success, so he was forced to choose another path – acting!

Jeffrey was helping his friend to move to Los Angeles, world’s “capital of acting”, when he discovered his passion for acting for the first time. Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s career officially began in 1991 with the role of a pimp named Sharkey in Lisa Hunt’s thriller “Uncaged”. In the course of the next several years, Jeffrey managed a continuous string of acting engagements, which helped him to improve his acting skills. Between 1996 and 1997, Jeffrey guest starred in “The Burning Zone”, the TV sci-fi series in which he appeared in 10 out of 19 episodes in total. All these engagements provided the basis for Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s net worth.

With his career on the rise, Jeffrey appeared in several more popular TV series, including “ER”, “V.I.P.”, “JAG”, “Star Trek: Enterprise” and “Monk”, before giving a notable performance in the award-winning sitcom “Weeds” in 2005. However, the real breakthrough in Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s career came in 2005, when he was cast in the role of John Winchester in the horror-fantasy drama series “Supernatural” in which he starred ’til 2008. All these ventures dramatically increased Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s wealth.

Just a year later in 2006, he began starring in ABC’s globally popular medical drama, “Grey’s Anatomy”, in which he played Denny Dequette, a heart transplant patient who managed to win the heart of Izzie Stevens, an intern played by Katherine Heigl. Three seasons in this role brought international fame to Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and added a significant sum to his account.

Jeffrey’s next big project came in 2009 and the movie “Watchmen”, the Zack Snyder neo-noir superhero movie based on the eponymous DC Comics series, in which he starred as The Comedian, a tough and amoral vigilante in a black leather costume and with a “rapist mask.” Doubtlessly, this engagement positively impacted the total size of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s net worth.

In his career, Jeffrey Dean Morgan has acted in 32 movies and 28 TV series in a career so far spanning 25 years. Apart from those already mentioned, other Jeffrey roles include appearances in “Magic City”, “The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe” and the “Texas Rising” TV series as well as the movies such as “P.S. I Love You” (2007), “Shanghai” (2010), “The Possession” (2012) and “Solace” (2015). All of these involvements have certainly increased Jeffrey’s wealth.

Some of the most recent acting engagements of Jeffrey Dean Morgan include an appearance as Negan in the final episode of the sixth season of “The Walking Dead”, and the side role of Thomas Wayne, Bruce Wayne’s father in the 2016 superhero spectacle “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”. As it was officially announced, Jeffrey’s Negan will be one of the main protagonists of the seventh season of “The Walking Dead”. Judging by Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s previous acting performances, it will certainly add a sum to his overall fortune.

When it comes to his personal life, Jeffrey Dean Morgan has been married since 2014 to a colleague actress, Hilarie Burton with whom he has a son. Prior to this, Jeffrey was married to another actress, Anya Longwell, between 1998 and 2003. and was engaged to “Weeds” co-star, Mary-Louise Parker.

#Quote
1[Told Flaunt Magazine in March 2010 that he currently abides by these steadfast rules] We don't tattoo someone's name on our body and we don't get married.
2I love Jared and Jensen. Going up to Vancouver is like going to camp. We have so much fun, and it's pretty much just the three of us up there. There's a lot of giggling. The three of us together act like little kids. They're both fun as heck, but they're both so different. Supernatural is the most difficult because I could never get used to working nights. Working exterior nights in Vancouver, when it's raining and snowing, is a little daunting, when you haven't slept. The show is extremely hard, physically. - on working with Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles on Supernatural (2005).
3[about coming back to Supernatural (2005)] "I'm going to call Eric [series creator Eric Kripke] and beg for my life and find a way to come back and harass these guys [Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki] in some way.
4[in his "TV Tattler" interview, regarding the relationship with his television sons Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles] On set, we're like three idiot brothers.
5[from his 1997 "Playgirl" magazine interview, on whether he wants to get married someday] Yes, I do. But I don't have any immediate plans because I know I wasn't good at it the first time around.
6I'm just looking always for characters that change, because I want to get better, as an actor and as a person.
7I think, as I've gotten older I have realized what a huge privilege it is to even be in this business. I, more than ever, love what I do.
