Tony Dow’s interest in the film industry might have been related to the fact that his mother, Muriel Virginia Dow, was a stunt woman and a film double at the time Tony was a child and teenager. However, Tony undoubtedly had some acting talent which was proven when he managed to win the audition for a role in the sitcom “Leave It to Beaver” in 1957, despite having no experience in acting at that time. This was the role that had perhaps the most influence in building a solid foundation to Tony Dow’s acting career, even though he received only one award – Young Artist Award in nomination of “Former Child Star Lifetime Achievement Award” in 1988, after working in the show for six years. It was also a solid start to his net worth.
In the next few years after “Leave It to Beaver”, Tony appeared in several episodes of other TV shows, such as the sitcom “My Three Sons” (in 1964), drama series “Mr. Novak” (between 1963 and 1965) and teen soap opera “Never Too Young” (in 1965). Tony continued working in television up until the late 90s and his net worth continued to grow, for example in 1975 he starred in the popular medical TV drama “General Hospital”.
While Tony Dow is mostly known as a television actor, he has appeared in a few films during his career, including the television horror film “Death Scream” in 1975, comedy film “The Kentucky Fried Movie” in 1977, television comedy film “High School USA” in 1983, comedy “Back to the Beach” and comedy film “Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star” in 2003.
Acting aside, Tony Dow is also known as a producer, director and visual effects specialist, especially in the science fiction genre, and these involvements have undoubtedly contributed to building up his net worth. Tony contributed to the visual effects of the 1996 season of the phenomenal British science fiction TV series “Doctor Who”, and a few episodes of the space opera TV series “Babylon 5”. He also directed an episode of the American science fiction TV series “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” in 1998.
Interestingly though, some people might also recognize Tony Dow as a sculptor who is well known for his brilliant abstract pieces depicting surreal figures.
In his personal life, Tony Dow has never been married and has no children. He is known to have suffered from depression during some periods of his life, which on a positive note has encouraged him to participate in self-help videos, including the production “Beating the Blues” (1998). However, the negative effect is that Tony hasn’t participated as an actor in any film since 2003.
