Jane Lynch Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Jane Marie Lynch was born on the 14th July 1960, in Dolton, Illinois, USA of Swedish and Irish ancestry. She is an actress, probably best known for starring in the role of Coach Sue Sylvester in the TV series “Glee” (2009-2015). She has also appeared in a number of other TV series and films, and is also known for being a host. Her career has been active since 1988.

Have you ever wondered how rich is Jane Lynch? It is estimated from sources that Jane counts her net worth at the impressive amount of $10 million, as of early 2016. Obviously, the main source of her income is coming from her involvement in the entertainment industry.

Jane Lynch Net Worth $10 Million

Jane Lynch was born into the Catholic family of Frank, a banker, and Eileen Lynch, a homemaker-secretary. She attended Thornridge High School, after which she graduated with BA degree in Theatre from Illinois State University, and later graduated with an MFA in Theatre from Cornell University. Thus, Jane’s acting career began in theater, when she joined the Steppenwolf Theatre Company, and later joining the Annoyance Theater. She was also one of two women who joined the Second City comedy troupe.

However, her screen debut was in the film “Vice Versa” (1988), and the same year she was cast in “Taxi Driver”. Her career took a turn for the better during the 1990s, appearing in several films and TV series which not only helped her career, but also increased her overall net worth. Some of the titles include “Straight Talk” (1992), “Third Rock Form The Sun” (1996), “Touch Me” (1997), “Fatal Instinct” (1993), “The Fugitive” (1993), and “Frasier” (1997).

Thanks to her skills and talents, the 2000s brought her career to a whole new level, which enabled her to acquire roles in high production TV series and films, such as “Best In Show” (2000), by Christopher Guest, with Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara in lead roles, “Boston Legal”, in which she was cast as Joanna Monroe from 2006 until 2008, “Two And A Half Man” from 2004 to 2014, in the role of Dr. Linda Freeman, and also “Role Models” (2008), “Criminal Minds” (2006-2008), “The L Word” (2005-2009), and “Mighty Wind” (2003).

In 2009, Jane was chosen for the role of Sue Sylvester in the highly popular TV series “Glee”, which lasted until 2015, becoming the main source of her net worth, in those years, since she was receiving six figure numbers for each episode. Her net worth was certainly rising.

To speak further of her accomplishments in the entertainment industry, Jane has appeared in such titles as “Afternoon Delight” (2013), “A.C.O.D.” (2013), and most recently “Angel From Hell” (2016), “Dropping The Soap” (2016), “Late Bloomer” (2016), and “Mascots” (2016) – the demand speaks of her talent.

Jane has also done numerous voice roles, in such films and TV series as “Fineas And Ferb” (2011-2013), “Escape From Planet Earth” (2013), “Rio” (2011), and many others all of which added to her overall net worth.

Jane is a successful actress, who has appeared in more than 170 film and TV titles, for which she has won numerous prestigious nominations and awards, including the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on “Glee”, Best Female Vocal Performance in a Feature Film for her work on “Wreck-It Ralph”, among many others.

Apart from her successful career as an actress, Jane is also recognized as a host, as since 2013 she has been hosting the TV show called “Hollywood Game Night”, which airs on the NBC. For her engagement as a host, Jane has won two Emmy Awards, which have also helped contribute to the overall size of her net worth.

Regarding her personal life, Jane Lynch openly announced that she is lesbian, and she was married to clinical psychologist Lara Embry from 2010 to 2014, when they divorced. She is currently single, and resides in Los Angeles, California. In free time, Jane is active on her official Twitter account, on which she has over two million followers.

#Quote
1The r-word is the same as every minority slur. Treat it that way and don't use it.
2[on 'Glee'] I don't think you can underestimate truly how powerful this show has been and will continue to be. It's the place where you can go where you're celebrated for who you are. It's this safe refuge for kids. That's what we're all looking for. We're still in high school, a lot of us.
3[on Neil Patrick Harris] He's all over the place, but in a good way. There's a method in what seems to be the madness in him doing this and then doing that, hosting this and then doing that. I'm always watching Neil from the corner of my eye.
4[on playing Miss Hannigan in a Broadway revival of "Annie"] I'm reacquainted now with why I wanted to get into this crazy business. I love being onstage. I love performing. I love the immediate response from the audience. I love theater people. I love theater. I love putting on my own makeup. I love the whole thing.
5To this day, well, like, I'll see a very fey guy on TV and I'll be thinking, "Couldn't you butch it up a little?". I want us to make ourselves palatable to the world.
6[on realizing, at 12, she was gay] I knew instinctively it was a disease and a curse. No one could ever, ever know.
7[on her clothing] I don't wear particular designers. I wear whoever fits me well. I try to dress the bottom I have. The body I have and the bottom I have. I have the intention of looking fabulous every time, and I care about it a great deal. I'm very vain.
8[on being a stepmother to her partner's daughter, Haden Ryan-Embry] I'm almost 50, and I thought that possibility was behind me, so this is a real delight. I never went through a biological clock experience. I never even heard it ticking.
9[In an Interview with the UK Mirror on why she did not tell her parents she is a lesbian until she was 31 years old] I didn't want to be gay. I wanted to be... I wanted an easy life. And you know what? I am gay and I still have an easy life.
10On her first Golden Globe nomination: I slept through (the nominations announcement). But, I got up to six messages and went, "Ah! I wonder if there is some good news for us?" And there was. My agent called me three times and said, "Why aren't you up?: So, yeah. I called my mom, and she said, "The golden what?".

#Trademark
1Blue eyes
2Blonde hair, often short
3Statuesque, model-like figure
4Distinctive clipped manner of speaking
5Often plays straight-shooting, nonchalant personalities with a dry sense of humor
