Most of us were introduced to Megan Mullally when she dazzled us as the delightful and very drunk Karen Walker on the critically acclaimed series Will & Grace when it first debuted in 1998. However, Mullally has been in Hollywood’s inner circle for decades. The actress was born in Los Angeles to a professional model mother and a Paramount Pictures actor father. However, acting was not the Mullally’s first love. From her early life, she was mesmerized by ballet, and she attended the School of American Ballet in New York to study the craft.
After leaving ballet behind, the comedic actress attended Northwestern University before moving back to LA in the mid-1980s to pursue acting full time. So what is Mullally worth today and how much is her salary from Will & Grace?
What is Megan Mullally’s net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the actress is worth $15 million, and much of that has come from her work on the long-running series, Will & Grace and its revival. In fact, Mullally’s career in Hollywood started off tough. When she arrived in Hollywood her first job was in a McDonald’s ad. Later, she would go on to have small parts in shows like The Ellen Burstyn Show, Wings, Seinfeld, Mad About You, Just Shoot Me!, and Frasier before snagging a lead role in Murder, She Wrote.
However, it was Mullally’s work in Will & Grace that made her household name.
How much does Megan Mullally make on Will & Grace?
Will & Grace originally ran from 1998 to 2006 for a total of eight seasons until it was revived in 2017. It was and still is a groundbreaking series for the LGBTQ+ community and their allies, and it’s just hilariously good. At its height in 2005 during the show’s 7th season, Mullally was bringing home just under $400,000 per episode.
Since revivals are always risky, Mullally and the rest of the Will & Grace cast aren’t making quite as much from the current episodes of the sitcom. At present, she is bringing home $250,000 per episode for the series, but that can certainly increase as the show continues to be a ratings and critical hit.
Is Megan Mullally married?
The pint-sized actress has been married to actor Nick Offerman since 2003. Most of us know the comedic actor for his role as the surly and stern Ron Swanson on the NBC sitcom, Parks and Recreation. The pair initially met in 2000 while acting together in a play called, The Berlin Circle and they got married just a year and a half later. The duo has appeared together on both Will & Grace and in Parks and Rec.
Offerman is much younger than his wife, who is twelve years his senior. According to Celebrity Net Worth, he is worth $4 million.
