John Hillerman was born to Lenora Joan and Christopher Benedict Hillerman, who was the owner of a gas station. He spent his childhood in his hometown, where he went to St. Xavier’s Academy, after which he enrolled at the University of Texas at Austin, from which he graduated in Journalism in 1953, then from 1953 to 1957, John served in the US Air Force, where he achieved the rank of Sergeant. Upon discharging from military service, he relocated to New York City, where he began pursuing an acting career.

Thus, John’s professional acting career began in 1957, when he joined the American Theatre Wing. Two years later he began performing on Broadway, starring in a number of productions. Furthermore, he made his debut film appearance in the 1970s film “They Call Me Mister Tibbs!”, which was followed by roles in “Lawman” (1971), “What’s Up, Doc?” (1972), and“Chinatown” (1974), since when his career went only upwards, as well as his net worth.

In 1975, he starred in the film “Lucky Lady”, after which came his breakout role of Simon Brimmer in the TV series “Ellery Queen”, which lasted for a year. In the following year, he was selected for the role of Mr. Connors in the TV series “One Day At A Time” (1976-1980), and later he appeared as John Elliot in the TV series “The Betty White Show” (1977-1978), and in the film “Sunburn” (1979), all of which added a considerable amount to his net worth.

His next big role came in 1980, when he was chosen for the role of British Army Sergeant Major Jonathan Quayle Higgins III in the TV series “Magnum, P.I.”, alongside Tom Selleck and Roger E. Mosley. Before the next decade, John featured in such film and TV titles as “Simon & Simon” (1982), “Up The Creek” (1984), and “Around The World In 80 Days” (1989), among others, increasing further his net worth.

In 1990, John starred in the TV film “Hands Of A Murderer”, portraying Dr. John Watson, and began appearing regularly as Lloyd Hogan in the TV series “Valerie’s Family: The Hogans” until 1991. Before he retired in 1999, his last appearance on the screen was in the film named “A Very Brady Sequel” in 1996. His net worth was certainly still rising.

Thanks to his accomplishments in the acting world, John was nominated three times for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his work on the TV series “Magnum, P.I.” in 1984, 1985 and 1986 year, and he won it in 1987. For the same role, he also won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Series, Miniseries or Television Film.

Regarding to his personal life, clearly he has kept that very private, as there is no information in the media about John Hillerman.
