Colm Meaney Biography, Movies, Wife, Networth, Career

The actor we are going to speak about is quoted saying: „My old manager of the Irish National Theatre said ‘Don’t worry about being a star, just worry about being a working actor. Just keep working.’ I think that’s really good advice“. And it seems like so far Colm has been trying to follow this advice as much as he could. If he hasn‘t been constantly creating new characters, today Colm Meaney’s net worth would not amount to $10 million. Throughout his life, he has earned more than 100 hundred acting credits, but not all of them were of equal importance. In this article, we are going to bring to light the roles, movies, and television shows that had the greatest impact on Colm’s professional career. This way you will also get a better understanding of the sources of his fortune.

Colm Meaney’s net worth started to grow in the early 1980s when he started filming for movies and television series. Speaking about his career on the big screen, Colm made his debut in 1981, with the movie Nailed. during the rest of the decade the actor has featured in a range of movies, including Playboy of the Western World, Kenny Rogers as The Gambler, Part III: The Legend Continues, and The Dead, but while each of them has contributed to the overall Colm Meaney net worth, none has helped him gain critical acclaim. It was only in 1993 that Colm established himself as a talented movie actor. That year he featured in the Irish television film The Snapper. For the portrayal of Dessie Curley in this movie, the actor was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy. Among the other Colm‘s movie roles that were praised by critics are those in How Harry Became a Tree (for the portrayal of Harry in this film Meaney was nominated for the Irish Film and Television Award for Best Actor) and Kings.

While filming for movies, the actor has also featured in a variety of television series. But the most significant of all the roles Colm has done on television is that of Chief Miles O’Brien. When Star Trek: The Next Generation’s pilot episode was aired, O‘Brian was a background character, but as Meaney continued to film for this and other Star Track series (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), its importance has grown dramatically. In one of his interviews, the actor in question said: „There’s no reason not to be in television now. You get to live at home and you’re not on the road all the time, they pay you decent money, and the writing’s good. You’re not compromising for it, you know“. And I think the current Colm Meaney net worth proves that he was absolutely right!
