How did Julie Bowen Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on March 3, 1970, in Baltimore, Maryland, Julie Bowen grew up in the suburbs, where she attended Roland Park Country School. After graduating high school, she went to Brown University, where she majored in Italian Renaissance studies. Ultimately, it was during her time there that she got involved with acting. Some of the plays that she took part in as a student include Lemon Sky, Guys and Dolls and Stage Door.
In 1992, she landed her first, albeit minor, television role in the soap opera Loving. From there, she appeared in an episode of Class of ’96, before landing a lead role in the TV film, Runaway Daughters. By the end of the 90’s, she had played two recurring roles in the series Extreme and ER.
Ultimately it wasn’t until 2000, that she started to gain more attention after being cast as one of the lead characters in the NBC comedy-drama, Ed. The big break that she’d been waiting for, she played the role of Carol Phyllis Vessey, the love interest of the title character. Widely popular among audiences, the show played a significant role in the launch of her acting career.
A few years after Ed wrapped up, the actress co-starred in the legal comedy-drama, Boston Legal, a show that went on to earn her four Screen Actors Guild Award nominations.
Perhaps her most noteworthy role of all, however, is that of Claire Dunphy in the ABC sitcom, Modern Family. Her most prominent television credit to date, her portrayal has yielded her countless awards including six Primetime Emmy Award nominations, two of which resulted in wins. According to sources, the main cast- including Bowen, currently makes $175,000 per episode (they recently secured a pay raise).
In addition to her television career, Bowen has also appeared in a number of films (though it’s not her main focus). Some of the movies that she’s worked on include Crazy on the Outside, Kids in America, Joe Somebody, Knife Fight, and Planes: Fire & Rescue. Most recently, she co-starred in the comedy film, Life of the Party.
