Ryan Hurst Net Worth $4 Million
Ryan Hurst was born to Rick Hurst, who was an actor, and Candace Kaniecki, who worked as an acting coach. He spent his childhood in his hometown, Santa Monica, where he attended Santa Monica High School. As a child of actors, it wasn’t long before Ryan tried himself as an actor; his first role came in 1993 as Crunch Grabowski in the teen TV series “Saved by the Bell: The New Class”. Two years later, he was selected for the role of Wayne Simko in the TV series “Campus Cops” (1995-1996), and throughout the 1990s, he appeared in several notable films and TV series, including “Saving Private Ryan” (1998), directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Mat Damon and Tom Hanks, “The Postman” (1997), and “Patch Adams” (1999) with Robin Williams and Monica Potter. His first role in the new decade was as Capt. Hustings in the film “Rules Of Engagement” (2000), and the same year he featured in the film “Remember the Titans”, with Denzel Washington and Will Paton in lead roles. He continued successfully, appearing in films “We Were Soldiers” (2002), “Lone Star State of Mind” (2002), and TV series “Taken”, also in 2002. In 2004 he featured in the film “The Ladykillers”, starring Tom Hanks, and J. K. Simmons, and the following year, he was selected for the role of ATF Field Agent Jimmy McGloin in the TV series “Wanted” (2005). All the above added steadily to his net worth. His career then stalled a little, but sparked again with the role of Opie Winston in the TV series “Sons Of Anarchy” (2008-2012), which not only increased his net worth, but also lifted his career to a new level, as nothing was the same for Ryan after that particular role. He started to feature in more notable roles, including in films “Noble Things” (2008), “Chasing The Green” (2009), and TV series “King & Maxwell” (2013), “Bates Mode;” (2015-2016), and most recently “Outsiders” (2016-2017), increasing further his net worth.

Originally his character on Sons Of Anarchy, Harold "Opie" Winston and William Lucking's character, Piermont "Piney" Winston, weren't related. However, when filming the pilot episode of the show, seeing the two of them in their biker outfits and their towering heights of 6'4" and 6'5" respectively, they looked so much like father and son that creator Kurt Sutter re-wrote their characters to be father and son on the show.
In Sons Of Anarchy was originally planned to have a recurring part in Season 1, but he was immediately promoted to a main cast member in Season 2, when he became a fan favorite.

A motorcycle is an independent thing.
Bikers, in general, have just been so attractive to people. Photographers would follow them because there's this weird warrior gravitas that comes with it. The bikes are loud, they have tattoos, they have artwork that they all wear on their jackets.
I think it's particularly a distinctively American concept that resonates with American culture through biker culture. A motorcycle is an independent thing. You're like, 'I don't want to ride in a car with this person. I want to be independent and ride by myself. But, let's ride in a group. Let's be independent, together.'
One of the important things is that a lot of people forget that a biker club is a secret society.
I am real, real picky with what I decided to do. I want to make sure it's new and at the same time that it's in the same color of what I have played before. Not to pigeon hole myself but I don't like to do fluff.
