The star of several hit television series and recipient of an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, the American actress Mary Marg Helgenberger – more commonly known simply as Marg Helgenberger – has built up an estimated net worth of $16 million over the course of her career to date. Probably most famous for her twelve seasons on the hugely popular CBS crime drama series “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”, Marg Helgenberger has featured in a number of television shows and films besides, including her Emmy Award-winning performance on the 1988-1991 ABC drama “China Beach”. An active and successful actress, Marg Helgenberg boasts an impressive filmography – which has played an enormous part in securing her an even more impressive net worth.

Marg Helgenberger Net Worth $16 Million

Born on 16 November 1958 in the city of Fremont in Nebraska, USA, Marg Helgenberg was born into a regular middle class family. Raised in Nebraska, Helgenberg spent her childhood dreaming of following in her mother Mary’s footsteps in becoming a nurse – it was not until her college years that Marg Helgenberg changed her mind about her future career, quite possibly the best decision of her life. First appearing on television as a weather person, Helgenberg initially seemed more interested in drama and theatre than television work – Marg’s first parts as an actress were in university plays. It was during the production of one such play that the future television star was first noticed by an agent working with the team behind the ABC soap opera “Ryan’s Hope”, and he approached Helgenberg with a proposal to join the cast. Upon receiving her speech and drama degree, Marg Helgenberg agreed, making her television acting debut in 1982. Helgenberg’s career looked set to take off from there, and after she left “Ryan’s Hope” in 1986, several new opportunities soon presented themselves.

Since then, Marg Helgenberg has gone on to become a truly successful actress. By 1988, Helgenberg had taken a regular role in the new ABC series “China Beach”, and her outstanding performance as Karen Charlene Koloski won her an Emmy in 1990. Over the course of her career to date, Marg Helgenberg has played opposite such film and television industry stars as George Clooney, Steven Seagal, Kelsey Grammer and “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” co-stars William Petersen and Jorja Fox. Helgenberg’s film credits include Steven Soderbergh’s 2000 film “Erin Brokovich”, alongside lead actress Julia Roberts. All these successes have had a great effect on Helgenberg’s net worth – the actress has been listed as the third best-paid female entertainer on primetime television (ranked after Tyra Banks and Katherine Heigl).

How rich is Marg Helgenberg? At the moment, Helgenberg’s net worth is thought to reach up to $16 million. By and large, Helgenberg has amassed this considerable net worth over the course of her successful career as a television and film actress, having appeared in popular and critically acclaimed series like “China Beach” and particularly “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”. As Marg Helgenberg continues to appear in various film, theatre and television productions in the future, her fame and net worth are certain to keep increasing.

Today, Marg Helgenberg is single, having divorced her husband of over twenty years, Alan Rosenberg, in 2010. Helgenberg has recently expressed a desire to return to the theatre stage, leaving “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” to do so.
