LeVar Burton Net Worth $6 Million

Levardis Robert Martyn Burton, Jr., better known to the world as LeVar Burton, was born in 1957, in Germany. When Burton was 13 years old he decided to start studying at St. Pius X seminary in order to become a priest. After some time Burton started to doubt his decision and when he was 17 years old he left the seminary and started to study drama at the University of Southern California. LeVar started his acting career in 1977 when he got the role in “Roots”. During the making of this series LeVar had an opportunity to work with John Amos, Ben Vereen, Vic Morrow, Leslie Uggams and others. The appearance in this show added to LeVar Burton’s net worth. Later Burton also appeared in “Fantasy Island”, “Rebop” and “Battle of the Network Stars”.

In 1983 LeVar became an executive producer and also a host of the television series, called “Reading Rainbow”. The show gained him acclaim and popularity. What is more, it had a huge impact on the growth of Burton’s net worth. In 1986 started to act in “Star Trek: The Next Generation”, where he worked together with Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, Marina Sirtis and others. He later also appeared in the movies based on this show. This of course made LeVar’s net worth grow. In addition to this Burton was involved into the creation of other shows and movies. For example, “Dancing in September”, “The Supernaturals”, “The Midnigh Hour”, “Family Guy”, “The Big Bang Theory” and others. All this added to LeVar Burton’s net worth. What is more, LeVar has written the book, titled “Aftermath”.

If to talk about Burton’s personal life it could be said that LeVar is married to Stephanie Cozart Burton and they have 2 children. All in all, it could be said that LeVar Burton is an acclaimed actor and also a director. He has a lot of experience in this field and also is respected by others in the movie industry. Undoubtedly, LeVar will appear in even more shows and movies in the future so his net worth might also grow. Let’s hope that in the future Burton will also become more famous as the director as well.
