Judy Carne Net Worth $8 Million
Judy showed interest in music and dancing from an early age, so she gradually devoted her time to perfecting those skills. Trained in dance, she appeared in several musical performances in her teenage years, and even changed her name, taking her dance teacher’s advice. After appearing on British television, Carne wanted to make a name for herself in the US, so she went there in the beginning of the ‘60s, pursuing an acting career. In 1962 she appeared in the TV series “Fair Exchange”, and soon after became a regular cast member of “The Baileys of Balboa” sitcom (1964).
Judy’s more notable role came after starring next to Pete Duel in the romantic comedy series “Love on a Rooftop”(1966), after which she was completely accepted by the American audience and continued to appear in various television and film productions. It was at that time that she rose to true stardom with her role in the highly popular “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In” (1967). The show was very well received by the public and so was Judy, who even introduced the phrase “Sock it to me!” which became her trademark. However, Carne decided to leave the show after two seasons as she was dissatisfied with her singing and dancing skills being undermined. Unfortunately, Carne’s career went downwards after leaving the show, and she never reached any bigger success except for her role in a Broadway revival of “The Boy Friend”, co-starring Sandy Duncan.
In addition to her professional downfall, Judy was also having problems in her private life which eventually escalated to drug abuse. During the late ‘60s and ‘70s, she made minor appearances in various stage projects such as “Cabaret”, “Absurd Person Singular” and “Blithe Spirit”. After this, Judy withdrew from the public life until the release of her autobiography “Laughing on the Outside, Crying on the Inside” in 1985. She appeared in the 25th anniversary of “Laugh-In’s” televised Christmas show in 1993, but definitely abandoned the entertainment life after that.
In her personal life, Judy was officially married twice, but rumors had it that she was married twice more afterwards. Her first husband was actor Burt Reynolds whom she married in 1963, but the couple split up two years later. Her marriage to Robert Bergmann also lasted only a short time, as the couple married in 1970 and divorced a year later. Carne didn’t have any children.
Late in life Carne moved back to her hometown of Northampton, where she lived until September 2015 when she died of pneumonia.
