Michael Gambon Net Worth $15 Million

Michael Gambon was born to Edward, an engineer and Mary Gambon. The family moved to London after World War II in order to help rebuild the city, and became British citizens. Gambon attended St Aloysius Boys’ School located in Somers Town, and later on he attended school in Kent, but dropped out at fifteen with nothing to show for it.

However, he picked up an apprenticeship as a toolmaker with aircraft manufacturer Vickers Armstrong, and was a qualified engineer by the time he was 21. During his time as an apprentice, Gambon also studied classical acting at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree. He worked as an engineer for a couple years, before debuting on stage at the Gate Theatre Dublin at age 24.

He toured with the company for a year, after which he joined the National Theatre Company. After four years of acting and making connections, Gambon joined the Birmingham Repertory Company, with which he finally received starring roles, and really started to add to his net worth.

Gambon’s debut film was in 1965, when he starred in Olivier’s “Othello” (1965). He then gained a lead role in the TV series “The Borderers” (1968-1970), which really lit a fire under his career. He spent the `70s building a name for himself, with roles in such films and TV series as “Eyeless in Gaza” (1971), “The Beast Must Die” (1974), and “The Other One” (1977-1979).

It was in 1980 that Gambon gained critical acclaim in the theatre world for his portrayal of Galileo in “The Life of Galileo” (1980), which fame ended up translating to TV, as he was chosen to play Phillip Marlow in the mini-series “The Singing Detective” (1986). All of these roles not only brought Gambon critical acclaim, but a hefty increase to his wealth.

Gambon continued starring in films and performing on stage into the 90s, and was knighted by Prince Charles in 1998 for his stellar contribution to acting. Some of his most notable films in the `90s include “A Man of No Importance” (1994) starring Albert Finney, “Samson and Delilah” (1996) directed by Nicolas Roeg, “The Gambler” (1997) in which he portrayed famed Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky, then “Wives and Daughters” (1999), and Tim Burton`s “Sleepy Hollow” the same year, next to Johnny Depp and Christina Ricci. He wasn’t quite finished yet with the arrival of the new millennium, as he continued to act, landing roles in “Endgame” (2000), “Longitude” (2000), then the Oscar-nominated drama “The Lost Prince”, directed by Stephen Poliakoff, and “Open Range” (2003), starring Kevin Costner and Robert Duvall. In 2004, Gambon was selected to play Albus Dumbledore in the “Harry Potter” film franchise, replacing Richard Harris who passed away after the second film. This earned Gambon international fame as well as acting as the largest contributor to his net worth so far, as Michael portrayed Albus Dumbledore five of the “Harry Potter” franchise films. Through the `00s, Gambon had several other notable roles, including in such productions as the Oscar-nominated “The Good Shepherd” (2006) starring Robert De Niro, Matt Damon and Angelina Jolie, “The Book of Eli” (2010), and then the Oscar-awarded Tom Hooper drama “The King`s Speech” (2010), with Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter, “Quarter” (2012), and most recently “Churchill’s Secret” (2016), all of which were successes, and which only further increased his net worth. He is also set to appear in the films “Mad to Be Normal” (2017), “Victoria and Abdul”, and “Viceroy`s House” (2017), among others.

Thanks to his skills, Michael has received various prestigious nominations and awards, including a Golden Globe Award nomination for “Path to War”, in category Best Performance by an Actor in a Miniseries or a Motion Picture Made for Television, and four BAFTA Awards in category Best Actor for “The Singing Detective” in 1987, “Wives and Daughters” in 2000, then “Longitude” in 2001 and in 2002 for the film “Perfect Strangers”. He also has two SAG awards in his collection, one for the film “Gosford Park”, and the second one for “The King`s Speech”, among other awards.

Regarding his personal life, Gambon has been partnered with Phillipa Hart since 2000. He was married to Anne Miller from 1962 to 1999, and they have three children together. Besides acting, Gambon is also a qualified pilot, but his main hobby is cars, being a noted car collector, and guest-appearing on the popular BBC show, “Top Gear”.

1(On Peter O'Toole) "He was a great actor. His early years were the best I thought. He was great fun to be with. He will be missed badly."
2(On replacing Richard Harris as Dumbledore) Richard was in heavy, heavy costume, he could hardly sit, you know, and I turned up and they put me in two layers of silk, so I played him much lighter - you know, floating around in a pair of slippers, a bit of a hippy.
3I've always tried to be an actor who... I just plod on and try to keep my mouth shut, mind my own business. I find the whole thing about people's lives... I can't understand it. I'm always astonished that people want to know anything about me.
4Paul Schofield said something like, 'If I'm not acting in a play, I don't really exist.' Those weren't the exact words, but he meant it's only when I'm acting in a play that I've got something to say about the world. And then why should I talk, when people can come to see it?
5Television has dried up for my generation, so it's plays and films.
6You get used to being lazy doing films, but classical theatre's going to finish me off.
7There's no subtext in Harry Potter really; it's all magic, anything can happen. Why do I say this? Because it's a magic spell. It's quite nice in a way. There is a real freedom to it.
8Every part I play is just a variant of my own personality. No real character actor, of course, just me.
9I belong to quite a lot of learned societies. We collect firearms and discuss them at dinners and clubs and things.
10There were no spells at my school, just a smack in the mouth.
11A child did approach me in a restaurant in Cornwall, but he thought I was Gandalf.
12I'm very flower-like. I love classical music. I go to ballet and I cry. There's nothing so beautiful.
13I learn the lines that J.K. Rowling or whoever writes them, and say them.
14I just hate the idea of being well known. I know that is almost impossible if you're an actor who has done okay, but I've always fought against it.
15I promise myself that I would go and do a play every year.
16Oh yeah, I'd love to be a comedian. I've done a lot, but always in the confines of plays.
17Yeah, I like causing trouble. It's the teddy boy in me. I used to be a teddy boy. Feeling slightly inferior and wanting to cause a bit of bother and get some action going on in the room rather than get bored stiff.
18I am a theatre actor, but the last ten years I've taken parts in movies because it keeps me in money.
19I'm an anorak. I've always been an obsessive collector of things. Richard Briers collects stamps. I collect cars and guns, which are much more expensive, and much more difficult to store.
20I just play him as myself, I don't ease myself into any role really. I stick a beard on and play me.
21I live in fear of being a contented passenger. I'd rather get parts I can't play.
22Theater actors are just tolerated. You have to be a movie star to be a celebrity.
