Laura Harring Net Worth $5 Million

Laura is one of two children of María Elena Martínez-Cairo who is a real estate investor and a spiritual teacher, and Raymond Herring who was an organic farmer. Apart from Mexican, she is also of Austrian and German descent on her father’s side. After her parents separated when she was five, Laura moved to San Antonio, Texas, where she spent the rest of her childhood. In 1980 she enrolled at Aiglon College in Chesières-Villars, Vaud, Switzerland, then continued her education at the London Academy of Performing Arts, before attending the Italian Commedia dell’arte. Upon graduation she returned to the States and settled in El Paso, Texas, after which she became involved in beauty contests, which later provided the basis for Laura Harring’s current net worth.

Her first beauty pageant honor was the title of Miss El Paso USA which was subsequently followed by the title of Miss Texas USA in 1985, and later Laura was crowned with the title of Miss USA 1985, becoming the first Latina woman to win this accolade. However, she later guided her efforts towards her acting career, and made her on-camera acting debut in the 1987 TV movie “The Alamo: Thirteen Days To Glory”. This engagement was followed by an appearance in an episode of “Beauty and the Beast” TV series in 1988, all of which helped Laura to establish herself in the world of acting as well as to earn a respectable sum.

To greater prominence Laura came in 1990, when she was cast for the recurring role of Carla Greco in 12 episodes of the “General Hospital” TV series, through 1991. In the course of the next decade, Harring honed her acting skills through TV series such as “Baywatch”, “Sunset Beach”, “Frasier” and “Silk Stalkings” as well as by appearing in movies such as “Exit to Eden” (1994) and “Hoover Park” (1997), all of which helped Laura Harring to increase the size of her net worth.

The real breakthrough in Laura’s acting career occurred in 2001, when she was cast for the role of Rita in David Lynch’s Oscar-nominated mystery drama movie “Mulholland Drive”, starring side by side with Naomi Watts and Justin Theroux. The movie is currently peaking at No. 1 on The Guardian’s list for the Best Movie of the 21st Century, and certainly this role made a massive contribution to Laura Harring’s wealth and fame as well.

With her career on arising path, Harring began appearing in higher rated movies, including opposite Denzel Washington in “John Q” (2002), in the leading role of “Loco Love” (2003), alongside John Travolta and Thomas Jane in “The Punisher” (2004), as well as in another David Lynch’s critically acclaimed mystery drama movie – “Inland Empire” (2006). She also appeared in supporting roles in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and “The Shield”, before starring as Sara Noriega alongside Javier Bardem in Golden Globe nominated 2007 romantic drama movie “Love In The Time Of Cholera”. It is certain that all these accolades made a huge impact on Laura Harring’s net worth as well as her popularity.

Between 2009 and 2010, she played as Elizabeth Fisher in the TV series “Gossip Girl”, which was followed by the recurring role of Julia Feldman in “NCIS: Los Angeles”, which she portrayed ’til 2016. Laura also appeared briefly in “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”, and then starred in movies “Return To Babylon” (2013) and “Sex Ed” (2014), before being cast for the recurring role of Olivia Ortiz in “Chasing Life” TV series. Doubtlessly, all these accolades have helped Laura Harring to enlarge her revenues by a large margin.

When it comes to her personal life, between 1987 and 1989 Laura was married to Carl-Eduard Otto Wolfgang Jayme Anders Graf von Bismarck-Schönhausen. Although they have been divorced for almost 30 years nowadays, she still retains the title of the Countess von Bismarck-Schönhausen. There aren’t any other relevant details about her romantic connections and love affairs, if any. She currently resides in Los Angeles, California.

1Extremes? The Hermetic Philosophy says that you can master yourself and find the Center. When I do I'll give you a call.
2We are all perfect and imperfect at the same time.
3You can see beauty in everything.
4Life is wonderful beautiful journey. Every episode of my life is like a dream and I am at peace and happy with what life has given me.
5Some may think fashion is frivolous, but the way I see it, when you dress well, you add beauty to the world. And there's nothing wrong with that, right?
6It is important to know the difference between the hard work of acting and play-acting at events like this. The only difference between me and some other actresses is that I don't mind playing the game.
7In private, I'm a hippie who follows Buddhism, does yoga, meditates and loves to dance wildly. But when I'm on show, I become a different person. Some actors do not understand that difference, and resent it. I say, 'Let them give you the jewels, go around with your bodyguard, let them dress you. If you are promoting a film, don't be afraid of glamor.'
8Unless you have a real passion for making movies, then don't bother. I had to carry energy and light into every meeting, only to be told, 'We don't want you.' I couldn't take it personally. You just have to wait, and live for those moments when the casting director likes you. Those words - 'You're hired' - are the best. I would try to remember what I learned in India - everything that happens is a mirror of how you are feeling. If you don't feel good about yourself, people don't feel good about you either. When you feel good, people see that and want to help you.
