Larry Martin Hagman was born on the 21st September 1931, in Fort Worth, Texas, USA of Swedish descent on his father’s side. Larry died at the age of 81 in 2012 in Dallas, Texas, USA. Hangman was a famous television and film actor who rose to the prominence for his well known roles in television series’ “I Dream of Jeannie” (1965-1970) and “Dallas” (1978-1991). What is more, he worked as a director and producer which was also a significant source of his income. Additionally, he worked in the film industry playing various roles. Overall, Larry Hangman spent more than 60 years working in the entertainment industry, from 1950 to 2012.

Larry Hagman Net Worth $15 Million

So, was Larry Hagman rich? It has been estimated by sources that he had a net worth of $15 million, partly accumulated from a minimum of $75,000 per TV episode. As a result, he could afford to live luxuriously.

Larry Hagman was born into the family of a celebrity and lawyer: his mother, Mary Martin was a popular Broadway actress. When Larry was five years old, his parents divorced, and as his mother was engrossed in her career, Larry spent most of the time with the grandmother. When the grandmother died, he lived with his father for a while, but studied at boarding school. After graduation from Weatherford High School, Hagman decided to pursue an acting career, too. The first role Larry landed was at The Woodstock Playhouse in 1950. Afterwards, he appeared in the musical “South Pacific” alongside his mother. However, in 1952 Larry joined the US Air Force which meant a pause in his acting career.

After military service, in 1956 Hagman returned to firstly off-Broadway, and then Broadway, in various plays for a number of years. However, Larry only became famous after his entrance into Hollywood. The role of Tony Nelson landed in the sitcom “I Dream of Jeannie” (1965-1970) was the first series that made him recognized, famous – including acting with Barbara Eden – and contributed significant amounts to his net worth. Then, he appeared in a number of television films as follows: “Three’s a Crowd” (1969), “The Hired Hand” (1971), “Getting Away from It All” (1972) and others. In addition to this, he continued his career appearing in various series including “Here We Go Again” (1973), “The Rhinemann Exchange” (1977), and “The Rockford Files” (1977). However, Larry then portrayed J.R. Ewing in another very successful series, “Dallas” (1978-1991), which had high ratings throughout its existence, with fans also captivated by the revival of characters in the films “Dallas: The Early Years” (1986), “Dallas: J.R. Returns” (1996), “Dallas: War of the Ewings” (1998) and finally the sequel television series “Dallas” (2012–2013). Larry’s last appearances on television screens include a role in the series “Orleans” (1997) and a guest role in the “Desperate Housewives” (2011).

Additionally, Larry Hagman was popular in the cinema industry. In 1966, Larry landed a role in the feature film “The Group” (1966) directed by Sidney Lumet. Furthermore, in 1972 he debuted as a director of the film “Beware! The Blob”. Other appearances on the big screen include films “Fail-Safe” (1964), “Harry and Tonto (1974), “S.O.B.” (1981), “The Eagle Has Landed” (1976), and “Nixon” (1995) which also increased his net worth.

Larry Hagman was faithful to his profession and devoted to it. However, what is most important, he was loving and loyal to the only woman in his life, his wife, Maj Axelsson. They married in 1954 and lived happily until his death. The family has two children.

Larry Hagman died because of complications caused by his illness, leukaemia.

#Fact
1Her ex-Dallas (1978) co-star, Victoria Principal, used to live not too far from him. Before the series began, they were actually lifelong friends.
2He was most widely known to be a social butterfly.
3His widow, Maj Axelsson was 3 yrs. his senior.
4Maj Axelsson Hagman of Los Angeles, California, died May 31st, 2016. The loving wife of Actor Larry Hagman, she was known as an amazing hostess and mainstay of the family. Born in May, 1928 in Eskilstuna, Sweden, she was the eldest of four sisters. Her father, who had a car dealership in Sweden, told his daughter to "reach for the stars in order to get to the treetops" and Maj followed his advice moving to London and becoming an accomplished dress designer. In London she met the love of her life, a young serviceman named Larry Hagman, who had recently performed in the cast of the Broadway import musical "South Pacific," with his mother, the acclaimed New York musical theater star Mary Martin. Mag moved to New York City as a military bride and supported her husband Larry by designing and sewing costumes for night club singers while Larry worked in the New York theater. When Larry landed a starring role in the early 1960s on Hollywood's "I Dream of Jeannie," Mag turned her considerable talents to supporting Larry's ascending career while continuing to design clothes, build extraordinary homes and even custom-design Jacuzzis. Mag later shared in the joys and successes of Larry Hagman's success as "JR Ewing" on the popular hit television series "Dallas" that ran from the late 1970s through the 1980s. The couple supported philanthropic causes from the Dallas and Ojai Symphonies to organ donations and solar energy. The couple traveled the world together over five and a half decades of their marriage until Larry passed away in 2012. In the end, she surpassed the treetops and touched the stars. Maj and Larry are survived to their two children and five grandchildren.
5Before his future Dallas (1978) co-star, Charlene Tilton, co-starred opposite Hagman in the series, as a little girl, she used to visit Hagman's dear friend, Richard Dawson off- the set of Hogan's Heroes (1965), where Dawson used to give her gum and candy, all the while, he took her around and watch him rehearse.
6Was a longtime friend of Richard Dawson. He used to play Frisbee at Hagman's house in Malibu, where he was living at the time.
7After Dallas (1978) and until Barbara Bel Geddes's death, he did not keep in touch with her.
8On Dallas (1978), his character drank heavily, in real-life, he also drank heavily, which led him to receiving a liver transplant in 1995, though it didn't damage the organ, when it weakened his immune system.
9On an episode of Dallas (1978), his character read the letter from his late TV father, in real-life, he lost his own father, years before the series started.
10Carcinoma ran in his family.
11Next to his Dallas (1978) co-star, Linda Gray, his favorite actress from that same serial was Deborah Rennard.
12His Dallas (1978) co-stars, Patrick Duffy and Sasha Mitchell co-starred on the popular 1990s sitcom, Step by Step (1991), also produced by Lorimar (now Warner Bros. Television).
13When he wanted to audition for one of the male lead roles as J.R. Ewing in Dallas (1978), his character from I Dream of Jeannie (1965) nearly prevented him from accepting it, because he might've been typecasted, but David Jacobs didn't mind him doing a soap opera.
14Once stated that (before Dallas (1978)) young viewers often confused him with Dick York (or Dick Sargent) and DeForest Kelley.
15Was known to throw parties for the cast and crew at his home whenever tensions ran high on set.
16His character J.R. Ewing was so hated that Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceauescu allowed ''Dallas'' to be one of the few series shown in his country and paid Hagman to show his image throughout the country as he saw his character as epitomizing the very worst of American capitalism and hoped it would turn people against the idea.
17Was close friends with Hunter von Leer.
18Was 1 month younger than his I Dream of Jeannie (1965) co-star Barbara Eden.
19He played the same character (J.R. Ewing) on three different series: Dallas (1978), Knots Landing (1979) and Dallas (2012).
20Acting mentor and friends of Patrick Duffy, Victoria Principal, Charlene Tilton and Sheree J. Wilson.
21Used to live in the same area as Michael Landon.
22On I Dream of Jeannie (1965), he played an astronaut who was a member of the United States Air Force, in real-life, Hagman served in the United States Air Force.
23Just before his death, his Dallas (1978) co-star, Linda Gray, played host to him at his 81st birthday luncheon at a restaurant in Dallas, Texas.
24Was raised largely by his maternal grandmother while his mother became a famous stage actress.
25Met a young, unfamiliar actor Patrick Duffy in the movie, Hurricane (1974), before Hagman co-starred with him on Dallas (1978), opposite Hagman as his younger brother.
26He was not David Jacobs's first choice to audition for the male lead role of J.R. Ewing on Dallas (1978), when Robert Foxworth had been offered the role. Knowing he would not play a character that was absolutely unsympathetic, Hagman immediately came in and won the role.

#Quote
1[In 1989]: By God, you're right, I had not thought of that. It never occurred to me.
2[From playing the woman's master to playing a dastardly, charming villain]: I was in 'Jeannie' for sometime and I made the transition to a bad guy from a rather bumbling idiot. And I hope that this will be a slightly different edge. At my age, I suppose it's about the last one I'll have an opportunity to do. So, I'm going to have a lot of fun with this.
3[In 1981]: A year later, when they say they didn't say what they said, I play back the tape.
4[on his book]: I didn't put anything in that I thought I was going to hurt someone or compromise them in anyway, not that I had too many things in my life.
5If you do your research on hot springs all over the world, they're usually places of peace. People, even in warring nations and so forth, they'll go and live in peace together around the hot springs, which were always considered medicinal. I firmly believe in water therapy.
6[Who said in 2011 about his stage 2 throat cancer diagnosis]: As J. R. I could get away with anything - bribery, blackmail and adultery. But I got caught by cancer. I do want everyone to know that it is a very common and treatable form of cancer. I will be receiving treatment while working on the new Dallas series. I could not think of a better place to be than working on a show I love, with people I love.
7[When he landed the part on I Dream of Jeannie (1965)]: They did the first season in black and white to save $500 a show. I came out; I was out of work. I had done 'The Edge of Night' in New York.
8[Upon his introduction to marijuana by Jack Nicholson, as a safer alternative to his heavy drinking]: I liked it because it was fun, it made me feel good, and I never had a hangover!
9[on his popularity while playing the fifty-something brother/villain J.R. Ewing on Dallas (1978)]: Everybody knows a J.R. They have a boss, an uncle, a daddy, a florist who is just like him. And not just in America either. J.R. is all over the world, set aside from others in that he has been trained to succeed at any cost.
10[on his role of I Dream of Jeannie (1965) that was finally cancelled]: But it spelled trouble. It was hard on me. It hit me like a bang.
11[In 1971]: I grew up in a family that had servants, including butlers - I've been around servants all my life - and somehow we got the proper procedures straightened out without calling in an expert.
12[Who said in 1983 upon meeting with Joan Collins for the first time]: She was the most beautiful women.
13Naw, I asked Walter Cronkite to be vice president. Everybody loves Walter, a lot of people don't like Mr. Nixon and a lot of people don't like Don.
14[If he were to leave Dallas (1978), then Robert Culp would take over his role which would've not upset Hagman]: I'm almost 50. I simply would have gone on to something else. As you get older, you think of things you would like to do. As of now, I've got my toy.
15They say it's no worse than standing in front of a TV set. That's what they said about asbestos and World War II radiation experiments.
16[In 1980]: I've been married 26 years and it lasts because I take my wife with me, wherever I go.
17The time is ripe for a bad guy, and I'm it.
18[In 1965]: I'm the kind of guy who says I am $15 overdrawn at the bank when I have $700 in the account. That's how pessimistic I am. With that in mind, I want to say that I don't know how I Dream of Jeannie can fail.
19[About his lifelong friendship with Carroll O'Connor]: Carroll is really my mentor. He knows more [show business] than any other actor I know.
20[In 1998]: We recycle everything else - tires, glass, paper, you name it. Why not recycle our bodies?
21I'm stronger now than when I started this whole rigamarole. I know I have a nice 36-year-old liver in the body of a 66-year-old man and I feel wonderful.
22[Referring to his choice of final resting place for his ashes] I want to be spread over a field and have marijuana and wheat planted and harvest it in a couple of years and then have a big marijuana cake, enough for 200 or 300 people. People eat a little of Larry.
23[About co-star Linda Gray after her real-life divorce]: Maj and I kind of adopted her. She was here at the house nearly every day. We'd call her first thing in the morning to make sure she was alright, we'd make sure she had dinner every night.
24People I meet really want me to be J.R., so it's hard to disappoint them.
25I was born with success. Lucky for me I am able to handle it. Also, I damn well deserve it!
26[on the infamous "Who Shot J.R?" episode]: "Before that fateful shot rang out, I was merely bemused by the success of the character. Villainy could be fun, and that's how I played it. And if it worked. I mean I couldn't go down to the corner to pick up my copy of the Sunday New York Times without running into some nubile creature with "J.R. for President" emblazoned across her chest. Now a higher, shriller note had been added. People who once merely wanted J.R.'s autograph demanded to know who shot him as if it were their birthright, and were angry and upset when I told them, truthfully, that I didn't know.
27I spent five years in England, I went over there with my mother in the show South Pacific and I just love it. I go back there three or four times a year. I joined the American airforce because the Korean war was going on at one time and I got my call up papers and I was supposed to report back to the United States and get my ass shot off in Korea which I didn't think was a smart idea and not only that I couldn't understand what the war was all about, I guess a lot of people could at that time but I still can't even more than I can the Vietnam war, so anyhow I enlisted in the American airforce and I was stationed in London for four years which was pretty good because I never gave up my civilian apartment in St Johns Wood. I got married, met a Swedish girl there, we've been married 46 years now.
28Barbara Eden is the most beautiful girl in the world.
29I made money. Enough so I don't have to work again. But I'd like to, I really would. But I'd want to do something interesting like Santa Claus - or God.
30[Who said in February 2002, when appearing on the BBC's Shooting Stars]: I've been on some loony shows in my time, but this one takes the cake.
