3 months ago 64

People can debate all day about which movie franchise is the most popular at the moment, but few would argue against the fact that the Lord of the Rings franchise is one of Hollywood’s greatest achievements. Marvel is basically printing money, and DC is getting revamped, but the Lord of the Rings did everything right.

A group of amazing actors made up of the Fellowship of the Ring, and all of them have made their fair share of money in the entertainment industry.

Only one, however, can lay claim to having the highest net worth, per Celebrity Net Worth. Let’s see which Fellowship member tops the list.

Sean Astin – $5 Million

Kicking things off with an estimated net worth of $5 million is actor Sean Astin, who played Samwise Gamgee in the beloved trilogy. Astin found success as a younger performer thanks to appearing in movies like The Goonies and Encino Man, but it was his time as Samwise that helped show people what he was truly capable of as an adult actor. He would go on to appear in the number of successful projects later on.

Billy Boyd – $6 Million

When it comes to some of the actors that starred in the trilogy, Billy Boyd might be the least known of the bunch as time has gone on. Nevertheless, he has put together a solid career in Hollywood. Boyd amassed his $6 million net worth thanks to movies like Master and Commander, and thanks to appearing on TV shows like Outlander and Doom Patrol.

Dominic Monaghan — $12 Million

Dominic Monaghan, who played Meriadoc Brandybuck in the trilogy, has done quite a bit of work since his time playing the beloved hobbit. The actor has gone on to appear in projects like X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Soldiers of Fortune, and he even had a role in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Lest we forget that he was also one of the key members of the hit series Lost, and he has gone on to do a number of other shows, including FlashForward. All of this played a part in him amassing a $12 million net worth.

Sean Bean – $20 Million

Sean Bean is known for many things, including the fact that very few characters of his actually make it out of their movies and TV shows alive. Thanks to the infamous Boromir meme, fans can rest assured that Sean Bean’s Lord of the Rings legacy will remain intact. His $20 million net worth is thanks to a number of projects, and one of the biggest successes of his entire career was playing the character Ned Stark on Game of Thrones.

Elijah Wood — $20 Million

Elijah Wood had the daunting task of playing Frodo Baggins in the original trilogy, and as the lead character, he had a lot of weight on his shoulders. Despite this, he was a perfect Frodo on the big screen, and fans thoroughly enjoyed watching his journey from the Shire to Mordor. During his career, Elijah Wood has appeared in notable projects like Radio Flyer, North, Deep Impact, and Sin City.

Viggo Mortensen — $40 Million

Viggo Mortensen might not have been a household name prior to landing the role of Aragorn, but by the time the trilogy ended, everyone knew exactly who he was. Since his time in the trilogy, the actor has gone on to have an amazing career in Hollywood. He has appeared in phenomenal projects like A History of Violence, Eastern Promises, and the Oscar-winning Green Book, which took home the Academy Award for Best Picture.

Orlando Bloom — $40 Million

The argument could be made that Orlando Bloom turned into the biggest celebrity thanks to his time in the trilogy, but he also benefited greatly from simultaneously appearing in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise as the character, Will Turner. As if these two franchises weren’t big enough for the actor, he would also go on to appear in the Hobbit trilogy of films, which gave his career another massive boost.

Ian McKellen — $60 Million

Coming in at the top spot here today is Ian McKellen, who played Gandalf in the trilogy. Around this same time, McKellen was also playing the role of Magneto in the X-Men franchise, meaning that he was double-dipping like Orlando Bloom was. This helped him become one of the most celebrated actors around, and it ensured that his legacy on the big screen would be cemented forever.
