Jamie Lynn Sigler: How Much Is the ‘Sopranos’ Actress Worth?
While most TV shows slip into obscurity in a decade or so, The Sopranos remains a force to be reckoned with 20 years after its premiere. When the cast and crew gathered to celebrate the show’s anniversary in January, news outlets covered it as they might a meeting between heads of state.
The hype won’t be subsiding anytime soon. As Sopranos creator David Chase preps a film prequel that starts shooting in April, expect another several years (minimum) of buzz about the New Jersey crime family ahead.
For the actors who starred as the family and associates of boss Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini), we doubt there’s a day that goes by that someone doesn’t mention the classic HBO series or their part in it.
That’s likely the case for Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who played Meadow Soprano. Though the Long Island-born actress has been performing since she was very young, she remains most famous as Meadow. Here’s a look at the major paydays in her career and Sigler’s net worth in 2019.
$110-120K per episode by the end of ‘The Sopranos’
When the cast of The Sopranos realized how much their services were worth, negotiations for upcoming seasons became intense. One notable back-and-forth occurred in 2002, after several seasons on the air.
Many of the show’s regulars, including Sigler and Robert Iler (A.J. Soprano), wanted their fees tripled. While that didn’t happen, they did end up negotiating large raises, bringing the fictional Soprano children near $75,000 per episode.
In 2006, as preparations were underway for the final season, Sigler and Iler once again negotiated pay raises. This time, the pair walked away with at least $110,000 per episode.
Even for a young actress who was already a millionaire several times over, that final push left Sigler with a small fortune for her portrayal of Meadow. But she didn’t stop there.
Since the end of the HBO mob show, Sigler has had recurring roles in Entourage and Ugly Betty while appearing in several feature films. That explains her impressive net worth.
Sigler’s net worth estimated at $25 million in 2019
Several years back, Celebrity Net Worth estimated Sigler’s fortune at $25 million. Since then, she’s had recurring roles on NBC’s Guys With Kids and Baby Daddy. Those roles seem appropriate for Sigler, who’s given birth to two children in recent years.
In 2019, she has several film projects lined up, with one (Apalchin, which takes Sigler back to mob tales) already completed. If anything, estimates of her net worth should only go up in the coming years.
Like co-stars Michael Imperioli (Christopher Moltisanti) and Lorraine Braco (Dr. Melfi), Sigler never stopped acting and has built a successful post-Sopranos career. That was quite different from the path of Iler (A.J.).
With her talent and connections in the business, Sigler can keep going until she decides to stop. But whatever she decides, she’s already set for life.
