Sid Haig Net Worth $1.5 Million

Sid Haig was brought up in an Armenian community by his parents – Sid later adopted his father’s Christian name. As a child he was very interested in dancing, and by the age of seven he was already a paid dancer in a Christmas show for children, after which he became a member of a vaudeville revival show. Later, he began playing the drums, and in his teens, Sid signed a one-year contract, releasing a single entitled “Full House” via the T-Birds in 1958, which reached No. 4 on the charts. However, while in high school, Sid was spotted by the head of the drama department Alice Merrill, who encouraged him to pursue a career as an actor. He enrolled at the Pasadena Playhouse, and was tutored by such successful actors as Gene Hackman, Robert Preston, Dustin Hoffman; after the course was over he moved to Hollywood.

Sid made his debut appearance in the short film “The Host” (1960), directed by Jack Hill; during the 1960s he built his name, appearing mostly in roles as a villain in such productions as “The Fireband” (1962), “Mission: Impossible” (1966-1970), and “Get Smart” (1967-1970) among others. He started the 1970s with a role in George Lucas` “THX” (1971), starring Robert Duvall, and in 1972 he teamed up with Jack Hill again, and starred in his “The Big Bird Cage” alongside Pam Grier and Anitra Ford. Again in 1973 he featured in Hill`s film “Coffy”, and once more with Pam Grier. In 1975 he appeared in Joseph Penvey`s “Who Is the Black Dahlia”, starring Efrem Zimbalist Jr., Brooke Adams and Donna Mills, while in 1976 he got the role of Texas in the TV series “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman” (1976-1977), and then from 1978 until 1979 he played Dragos in the TV series “Jason of Star Command”; all these increased his net worth by a large margin.

Throughout the 1980s he featured in B production films, such as “Underground Aces” (1981) with Melanie Griffith and Dirk Benedict, “The Aftermath” (1982), “Forty Days of Musa Dagh” (1982), “Commando Squad” (1987), and “Goddess of White” (1988). He continued into the early 1990s, with roles in “The Forbidden Dance” (1990), “Genuine Risk” (1990), and “Boris and Natasha” (1992), before he decided to retire from acting, as he became bored with the one dimensional characters.

However, he returned to acting in 1997, with the role of the Judge in Quentin Tarantino`s “Jackie Brown”, starring Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Forster, and in 2003 starred as Jack Spaulding in Rob Zombie`s debut film “House of the 1000 Corpses”, with Karen Black and Bill Moseley, repeating the role in the sequel “Devil`s Rejects” in 2005. In 2004, he appeared as Jay in Tarantino`s Oscar-nominated action drama “Kill Bill: Vol. 2”, with Uma Thurman, David Carradine and Michael Madsen. His net worth was rising steadily.

Since then, Sid`s name has become known in the Hollywood area, and he has featured in some of the most successful horror films made from 2005 until present, including “Halloween” (2007), “The Haunted Casino” (2007), “The Lords of Salem” (2012) once again teaming with Rob Zombie, “Hatchet III” (2013), and “Bone Tomahawk” (2015) with Kurt Russell and Patrick Wilson as leads, all of which increased Sid`s net worth to a large degree.

Sid also has several project which are in the process of filming, including “Suicide for Beginners”, ‘Death House”, “Tabbott`s Traveling Carnivale of Terrors”, and the TV series “86 Zombies”.

Sid has received several awards during his career, including a Lifetime Achievement Award by Eyegore Award, and two Chainsaw Awards for films “House of 1000 Corpses” and “The Devils Rejects”, among others. Also, Sid has been inducted into the Horror Hall of Fame.

If to talk about his personal life, Sid Haig has been married to Susan L. Oberg since 2007. He is also known as a certified hypnotherapist, and in his spare time, he enjoys working with his clients.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on why he retired on account of getting typecast] I just didn't want to play stupid heavies anymore. They just kept giving me the same parts but just putting different clothes on me. It was stupid and I resented it, and I wouldn't have anything to do with it.
2We shot the film [Spider Baby or, The Maddest Story Ever Told (1967)] in eleven or twelve days, something crazy like that. And for the first two days, I was almost hiding from him. Not that I was afraid of him but I just didn't know what you say to someone like Lon Chaney Jr.. And at one point, Jack said, "We're ready, where's Chaney? Sid, go get him, okay?" So I went over and I knocked on his trailer door and I said, "Mr. Chaney, they're ready for you." And he said, "No, stop that. I'm not Mr. Chaney, okay? I'm Lon, you're Sid, we're working together. Let's just keep it at that, okay?" And so it kind of put me at ease and made talking to him and hanging around him a little easier to do.
3When I went to school - Pasadena Playhouse - we were taught that the obligation of the actor is twofold: to entertain and to educate. We don't educate. So I've taken that onto myself. Now am I a good educator? I don't know. If someone latches onto a concept of mine, then I've taught well; otherwise, I'll have to rethink my stand on things. But in a country where individualism is supreme and synonymous with being an American, it's all vanished - it's all gone now. You go to college, and you know what you learn in college? How to work for somebody else. I teach an acting class for teenagers in the summer - I have for the past fourteen years. I don't encourage them to go to college: you want to be an actor? Be an actor. If you have to starve to do it, starve to do it. But if you're not passionate about what you want to do, you won't be good at it.
4Well, for one reason or another I felt it was necessary to keep making money in the business. I've done over 350 episodics, in either feature or starring roles, and 34 films. I felt at the time I had to do that, because I had a family. I had the choice of falling back on selling cars or whatever -- nothing against car salesmen -- or purposefully taking on the lion. Walking right into the den and saying "Here I am, and you're going to have to deal with me." And that's what I did. Was I a successful father? Maybe not. Was I a successful husband? Probably not. Was I a successful actor? Probably not.
