Melrose Place was an American soap opera that quickly became a smash hit on Fox during the ’90s. The show focused on a group of young adults living in an apartment complex in Los Angeles, California, whose lives all became entangled, and featured all the crazy drama of a daytime soap opera, but with much more well-crafted storylines. Created by Darren Star and produced by Aaron Spelling, the show was an extremely successful drama series that lasted an incredible 7 seasons on air! A true testament to its success, Melrose Place spawned two spin-off series, earned several Golden Globe nominations and drew in a whopping 10.8 million viewers for the series finale. It’s now been over 15 years since the show ended and many of the cast members have moved on to more successful careers, while others not so much. Here’s a look at how much the main cast is worth now!
8. Marcia Cross
Estimated Net Worth: $30 million. Many people will recognize Marcia Cross as Bree Van de Kamp on Desperate Housewives, but before she landed that role, she was Dr. Kimberly Shaw on Melrose Place! This was her breakout role and earned her much critical acclaim. Prior to ‘making it big,’ Cross did a few gigs here and there on shows like One Life to Live, Who’s the Boss? and Cheers. She then starred on Melrose Place for five seasons, but also appeared on a slew of other shows like Seinfeld, Boy Meets World, Ally McBeal, Spin City and The King of Queens. Cross dabbled in the film industry a bit with roles in Just Peck, Bringing Up Bobby, Bad Influence, and Always Say Goodbye. Her huge claim to fame was undoubtedly starring on the drama series Desperate Housewives for eight seasons. Her role as Bree earned her several award nominations including an Emmy, three Golden Globes, and five Screen Actors Guild Awards. Not only that, but it earned her a pretty penny too! She reportedly made approximately $375,000 per episode! In 2015 she did a brief stint on the show Quantico, but we’re pretty sure she doesn’t have to work another day if she doesn’t want to because she’s worth an estimated $30 million!Broadimage/REX
