How Did Lecy Goranson Make Her Money & Wealth?
Lecy Goranson was born on June 22nd 1974 in Evanston Illinois. Her full name is Alicia Linda Goranson. She started acting young, and gained the role of Becky Conner early in her career. A real boon for the young actor, as we all know now that Roseanne was a big success. Her character was portrayed as quick tempered, but smart. Her time on the show was tumultuous. For the first five seasons she was a star member of the cat, before needing more time to pursue her education. Thus she was written as having eloped with Glenn Quinn’s character Mark Healy. It resulted in her appearing more sporadically, sometimes via telephone only. When in the sixth season the writers decided they wanted her back she returned, only yo have to drop out again due to scheduling conflicts.She was replaced with Sarah Chalke, of Scrubs fame, but even then only sometimes. She returned permanently fro the eighth season, which was expected to be the last. When the show was renewed for another season Sarah replaced Lecy for the last time.
On average cast member salary on Roseanne rose a lot after the third season. It is known that fro season 7 Chalke received $85,000 per episode, so it is safe to assume that during her time as a star Lecy was getting $100,000 per episode, or there abouts. That figure would likely go up for the eighth season, as even Johnny Galecki was getting $200,000 by that point.
Lecy Goranson’s post Roseanne career has a fair few impressive credits on it, in both film and television. She appeared in Boys Don’t Cry, a landmark film concerning the real life killing of transman Brandon Teena. She has appeared more and more frequently in recent years on television and film, and it seems that trend is set to continue. She will be playing Becky Conner on the Roseanne revival, set to air next year, alongside Sarah Chalke, who will be playing some other character. Considering in the years since the show has aired that fourth wall leaning has become more prevalent on sitcoms I expect this to be addressed.
