Tamara Tunie estimated net worth is $8 million. She saved that wealth from movie industry, making appearances in films, TV shows and stage productions.
She has branched into acting, directing and producing, which has revived her career and turned her back with cash.
Tamara Tunie is mostly known as Jessica Griffin from the series “As the World Turns” and as Caroline Bennett from “Law & Order”.
Tamara Tunie starred not just in TV series, but also in several films. She has been in “The Devil’s Advocate”, “Wall Street”, “Flight” and many others.
She tried her hand as a director and producer in the melodrama “See You in September”. The low-budget melodrama about a number of successful people, who lost their psychotherapists and fell into a panic because of it, got quite positive reviews from critics and the audience, but didn’t become a massive hit. Probably, it would, if one more zero was added to the amount of the movie budget. The young actors Justin Kirk, Estella Warren and Liza Lapira tried as hard as they could. But the movie did not come out right, that’s why Tamara Tunie hasn’t been producing since 2010.
But she tried her hand as a stage actress and participated in the off-Broadway show “Familiar”.
The hard work came Tamara Tunie back with huge paychecks. Her net worth could be even bigger, if her manager didn’t steal $1 million from her funds. The man was sued for it. So, as for now, Tamara Tunie is a financially secured person. But how did that all start?
