What Is Pam Dawber’s Net Worth, and How Did She Acquire So Much Money?

Today, Pam Dawber has shied away from TV and cinema — making brief appearances in projects that call to her. Pam Dawber chose to step back from Hollywood soon after tying the knot with NCIS star Mark Harmon. She has explained multiple times why she felt the choice was necessary; she has argued that two people operating in showbiz simultaneously could struggle to raise kids. Balancing a work and personal life isn’t easy, and a constant spotlight on both parents doesn’t help.

Inside Pam Dawber’s most memorable role in ‘Mork & Mindy’ 

Pam Dawber is best known for starring opposite Robin Williams in the hit comedy Mork & Mindy — a Happy Days spinoff. Mork & Mindy followed an alien from the planet Ork (Robin Williams) on a mission to study the earth and its inhabitants’ behaviors. He syncs up with aspiring journalist, Mindy, and the two go on to find themselves wrapped up in various humorous shenanigans. 

When Robin Williams’ character reports back to his home planet, laughs always ensue. The show ran for four seasons from 1978 to 1982 and proved to be a catalyst for Dawber’s career.

Though the film was a bit of a critical flop, it followed a husband and wife, trapped inside “Hellvision” — after the husband buys a satellite dish offering 666 channels. The two must work on their marriage while trapped, coming to rediscover the love and passion that faded throughout the years. 

Pam Dawber also starred in Remembrance of Love, Last of the Great Survivors, The Wife for Hire, Wild Horses, American Geisha, and more. She also appeared in The Crazy Ones for a little reunion with Robin Williams a few years back.
