Moira Kelly Net Worth $2 million
Kelly attended Connetquot Senior High School and during her time there was part of a production of “Annie”. She was supposed to have a small role, but was then given the title role due to illness of the main actress. This would lead her to change from her initial aspiration of becoming a nun to becoming an actress. She would matriculate in 1986, and afterwards attended Marymount Manhattan College.
Moira made her professional acting debut in 1991, in the television movie “Love, Lies and Murder” in which she played a teenage murderer. This led her to have small roles in various films such as “Billy Bathgate”, and “The Boy Who Cried Bitch”. Afterwards, she was cast in the film “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me” and later in the year, starred in the romantic comedy “The Cutting Edge”. Her net worth started increasing, especially when she then played opposite Robert Downey, Jr. in the film “Chaplin”. More opportunities appeared for her, and she was cast in “Little Odessa”, “With Honors” and “Dangerous Beauty”.
She then tried her hand at voice acting, becoming a part of “The Lion King” as Nala, reprising her role in “The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride”, and “The Lion King 1 1/2.”. All of these projects continued to build her net worth. She also forayed into independent film, starring in “Entertaining Angels: The Dorothy Day Story” playing the title character. She also starred in “The Safety of Objects” alongside Glenn Close. In 1998, she played Helen Keller in the television movie “After the Miracle”.
Her next project would be the drama “The Have & to Hold” which she appeared opposite Jason Beghe. She was then cast in the first season of “The West Wing” as Mandy Hampton. In 2003, she became a part of “One Tree Hill”, and it also led her to direct two episodes of the show. She stopped being a regular cast member during the fifth season, but retained her role until the sixth season finale. Other projects she had during this period include “Heroes” and “Numb3rs”, and she also continued to have film roles including “A Smile as Big as the Moon” and “Remember the Daze”, adding steadily to her net worth.
For her personal life, it is known that Moira married businessman Steve Hewitt in 2000, and they have two children. She is a Catholic, and apparently needed to consult priests for some of her roles.
