There’s no debating that Michael Tylo had a huge impact on daytime television and the soap opera world. Naturally, his appearance on such a wide variety of shows and his lengthy career means he accrued a sizable net worth. 

However, there is some variety when it comes to Michael Tylo’s net worth, depending on who you ask. It seems Michael Tylo’s net worth has not been officially disclosed, but estimations place him somewhere between $3 million and $13 million. TV Guide Time estimates Michael Tylo’s net worth at $3 million, and Idol Net Worth puts him at $13 million. Quite a wide range. Net Worth Post suggests he had assets valuing up to $11 million.

Michael Tylo’s career is certainly distinguished, but fans will be amused to learn that Tylo didn’t originally want to become an actor. 

“I never wanted to become an actor. In the sixties, I worked with Sir Tyrone Guthrie and was then a directing student. I always wanted to direct, but I had one of those faces that at 35 years old, I could still play an 18-year-old,” he told TV Scene.  

“For example at that age, I played Lesley in The Hostage, and when you look like that, no-one wants to trust their budget to someone who looks like they just walked out of public school. But I decided to act anyway.”
