Emmy Award winning actress Judith Light has clocked up a strong net worth of $5 million. Light got her net worth through appearing in much-beloved soap operas and situation comedies, including One Life to Live and Who’s the Boss. The blond bombshell went on to Broadway, starring in A Doll House in 1975 and Herzl in 1976. Light was on a roll, until the late 1970s when playing parts were drying out. Penniless through the dry interval, Light almost quit playing entirely. All wasn’t lost, as Light made a smart transition to the tiny display, thanks to her agent. Initially, the actress wasn’t keen on becoming a business fixture in soaps or situation comedies — but after being informed that the day-to-day pay could be $350, the notion quickly grew on Light. So at tried out an audition for an understudy part in ABC’s soap opera, One Life to Live. Whilst at the audition, the veteran performer then realised that “the structure reaches out to a lot of men and women,” therefore she believed she can create a difference and make a lot of cash along the way!

There was no turning back for Light as instead of getting the understudy character, she was recast as the tired housewife-turned prostitute Karen Wolek. For her portrayal in One Life to Live, Light received her first Emmy award for Best Actress in a Drama Series. Since her major triumph, the well experienced actress was featured in many high profile dramas and sitcoms throughout the 1980s, including St Elsewhere (in which she won her second Emmy Award in 1981), Family Ties and Who’s the Boss. By the 1990’s, she started appearing in feature films such as Men do not Tell and Too Close to Home. The role earned Light an Emmy nomination.
