Monica Potter was raised with three younger sisters in a Roman Catholic family by her parents Nancy, a secretary, and Paul Brokaw, an inventor. She attended the St. Jerome Parish in Cleveland, and Villa Angela Catholic School for girls, at the same time, and later she matriculated from Euclid High School. From an early age, Monica wanted to be an actress, so she became a member of the Cleveland Play House. When she was only 12 years old, she started working as a model, as she was photographed by a local modeling agency and appeared in several commercials. However, she began pursuing her acting career, and moved to Miami, where she was a part of a children’s show, bu in no time she moved on to Hollywood, and her career really began.

Monica’s professional acting career started in the mid- 1990s, when she made her screen debut in the soap opera “The Young And Restless” in 1994. Thanks to the initial success, she soon cast in roles in films such as “Con Air” (1997), “A Cool, Dry Place” (1998), “Without Limits” (1998), and “The Very Thought of You” (1998). Before the 2000s, she also featured in such films as “Heaven or Vegas” (1999), and “Patch Adams” (1998), which only increased the overall size of her net worth.

With the beginning of the 2000s, her career reached a whole new level, as she secured roles in such films and TV series as “Head Over Heels” (2001), “Along Came A Spider” (2001) alongside Morgan Freeman and Michael Wincott, and “Saw” (2004) with Cary Elwes and Leigh Whannell in lead roles. In 2004 she was selected for the role of Lori Colson in the highly praised TV series “Boston Legal”, but her character only lasted a season, however, it certainly added her net worth.

To speak further of her accomplishments as an actress, Monica appeared in the films 201, and in TV series “Parenthood” (2010-2015), in which she portrayed Kristina Braverman. Her net worth is certainly rising.

Thanks to her talents, Monica has received several prestigious nominations and awards, including the nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series for her work on “Parenthood”, and she won a Critics’ Choice TV Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her work in the same series.

#Quote
1[on who deserves the 2013 Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Drama Series] I love Anna Gunn. She's great. And we share the same manager, so I feel like there's a sisterhood there.
2"If something strikes me as really funny, very intriguing or really touching, then I just go and do it. It's never about managing my career in a way that this would be a good move. I have enough people telling me what to do, so I think that when I read something, if I admire the writing and who's directing it, I just go for it." Interview, April 2001.
