Samantha Mathis Net Worth $2 Million

Samantha Mathis was born to actress Bibi Besch and Donald Mathis, and spent her first three years in her hometown, when she moved with her mother to Las Vegas, Nevada, as her parents divorced. Her first appearance on television was in a commercial for baby products with her mother when she was just a child. Her mother never wanted for her daughter to be an actress because she knew what the result of that kind of life could be as she herself was an actress. However, as a single mother, she had to bring Samantha to her acting classes, sets, and plays, so she practically grew up on the scene. Therefore, despite her mother’s wishes, her dream was to become an actress from the age of 12, so her acting career began when she turned 16.

Samantha made her debut appearance in the role of Roseanne Miller in the TV series “Aaron’s Way” in 1988, then repeated that role in the TV film “Circle Of Love”, after which she was chosen to portray Jacqueline ‘Jake’ Monroe in another TV series, entitled “Knightwatch” (1988-1989), which marked the beginning of an increase of her net worth.

In 1990, Samantha won the role in the film “Pump Up the Volume” as Nora Diniro, which increased her popularity as well as her net worth, then had a number of offers and became much more involved in the business. In the following years, she made outstanding performances in many excellent film titles such as in the role of Erica Ingels in “This Is My Life” (1992), playing Young Sophia in “How To Make An American Quilt” (1995) and as Terry Carmichael in “Broken Arrow” (1996), starring alongside John Travolta.

The new millennium didn’t change too much for her, as she continued to line up success after success. In 2000, she landed the role of Courtney Rawlinson in the film “American Psycho”, after which she was chosen to portray Ann Weller in the TV series “First Years” (2001), and starred in the role of Maria Castle in the 2004 film “The Punisher”, directed by Jonathan Hensleigh. Samantha also guest-starred in such TV series as “The Twilight Zone” (2003), “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” (2005), and “Lost” (2007). She was also cast in the TV series “Grey’s Anatomy” in 2009, playing Melinda Prescott, alongside Chandra Wilson and Justin Chambers in lead roles. All of these appearances increased her net worth by a large margin.

To speak further about her acting career, Samantha also made a notable performance in a series based on a Stephen King’s novel “Under The Dome” in 2013, appearing in the role of Dr. Alice Calvert. Most recently, she appeared as Justine Feraldo in the TV series “The Strain” (2015-2016). Her net worth is certainly still rising.

Beside her television and movie career, Samantha has also had voice roles and played in the theatre. For instance, she did a voice-over in the animated film “FernGully: The Last Rainforest” in 1992, and had a remarkable role in the theatre in the 1992 play “Fortinbras” in New York.

Thanks to her accomplishments, Samantha was nominated for a Young Artist Award for Best Young Actress Starring in a Motion Picture for her work on “This Is My Life” in 1995, etc.

Regarding her personal life, Samantha Mathis is known for having affairs with her colleagues, including actor River Phoenix, who died from a drug overdose while they were together, although apparently not complicit in his demise. She is still single and has no children.

1My mom always said, 'You got birthing hips'. Sometimes I wish they were a little smaller. But I don't want to look like a boy, you know?
2We have such an uptight relationship with nudity in America, and I think that's really unfortunate.
3[about having experienced strange reactions to on-the-job nudity in the past] People don't know whether to look at you or talk to you. And you feel... fine! People are talking about baseball stats, and you're just going, 'OK, you can be normal now!'.
4(On River Phoenix) I feel blessed to have worked with him and to have known him. He challenged me as an actress, he was always surprising and startlingly honest. He was an all too fleeting presence in my life, a beautiful young man. Who will always be in my heart.
5(On River Phoenix) "The nicest memory I have of him is when we went down to his family's property in Costa Rica, and we'd eat these mangoes for breakfast. River had them dripping all over him. When he ate, he ate with his hands. For me, he'll always be that beautiful, drippy mess."
6[on River Phoenix] River's death was a life changing experience for me. We all know that when anyone dies, it makes us look at life differently. Seeing someone so young and loving and full of life crumble and dies changed all my priorities. You know, it made me see what is really important and what isn't. Ultimately, I have really had to learn to laugh at life, too. Otherwise, it can all become too much.
7[About her role in The Mists of Avalon (2001), directed by German-born Uli Edel, specifically the infamous "threesome" scene]: The guys have on boxers, but I've just got, like, a piece of nude stretchy material taped to my breasts and my legs. And then suddenly Uli yells out of the darkness, "Remember you're doing it for ze kingdom, for ze kingdom!"
