Cast Of Roseanne: How Much Are They Worth Now?
There is still nothing like ’90s television. The decade had a ton of amazing family shows, with just enough inappropriate or at the very least real humor to appeal to everyone from parents to their children. One of the shows that nailed the realism of a working-class family was Roseanne. With a mix of talented new and veteran actors, the show enjoyed a successful nine season run from 1988-1997. Since it has been so long since the cast starred together, and they have moved on to other things, check out how much the cast of Roseanne is worth now!
9. Sarah Chalke
Estimated Net Worth: $14 Million. Sarah Chalke stepped into Roseanne as Becky Conner after Alicia Goranson’s school schedule became too much to handle along with the role. Although switching an actor or actress in the midst of a show is always difficult, Chalke pulled it off and has enjoyed a successful acting career since. She was in the Canadian series Nothing Too Good for a Cowboy for a year and enjoyed major success on Scrubs from 2001-2010, and became a recurring character on the hit show How I Met Your Mother as Stella Zinman from 2008-2014. Her continued work has added up to a very respectable net worth of $14 million.
8. Natalie West
Estimated Net Worth: $400 Thousand. Natalie West was a recurring character on Roseanne as Crystal Anderson, who ends up marrying Dan Conner’s father, Ed.
