Billy Dee Williams Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

William December Williams, Jr. was born on 6 April 1937, in New York City, New York USA, of West Indian and African-American descent. He is a famous actor, musician, writer and visual artist perhaps best known for his appearances in the “Star Wars” franchise movies, and the 1989 superhero film “Batman”.

Billy Dee Williams Net Worth $7.5 Million

So how rich is Billy Dee Williams nowadays? Sources estimate his current net worth to have reached $7.5 million, most of his wealth having been accumulated through his work as a film, television and voice actor.

Billy Dee is one of those actors who began their career on the theatre stage and later moved on to act in the film and television industry. He made his Broadway stage debut as a child actor in 1945 in “The Firebrand of Florence”, and as an adult actor in 1960 in “The Cool Word”. Meantime, in 1959 he made his first film appearance in the drama “The Last Angry Man” and in 1966 he became a cast member of the soap opera “The Guiding Light”. Being cast as one of the lead characters in the television film “Brian’s Song” had significantly influenced Billy Dee’s career.

In 1980 he was chosen for the character of Lando Calrissian in the epic space opera “The Empire Strikes Back” which was extremely successful and undoubtedly helped in raising both Billy Dee’s popularity and net worth. He has also appeared in another “Star Wars” franchise movie “Return of the Jedi” in 1983, and as a voice actor in the “Star Wars” saga adaptation in “National Public Radio“. Another important role in Billy Dee’s career was him playing the character of Harvey Dent in 1989 superhero movie “Batman”.

At about that time he appeared in a number of commercials for Colt 45 which resulted in a lot of criticism. Later in his career, Billy Dee guest starred in a large number of television shows including “General Hospital” in 2009, “White Collar” in 2011, “NCIS” in 2012, “Modern Family” in 2013 and “Glee” in 2014.

Another aspect of his life which might have contributed to his net worth is painting, something which he practiced even before starting his acting career. His works are good enough to have been displayed in a number of galleries, including the National Portrait Gallery, the Schomburg Museum and the Smithsonian Institution”. Further, while writing isn’t his main source of income, he has published three books: “PSI/Net” in 1999, “JUST/In Time” in 2001 and “Twilight: A Novel” in 2002, which have contributed to his net worth at least to some degree.

In his personal life, Billy Dee married Teruko Nakagami in 1972 and they raised a daughter named Hanako born in 1973. Billy Dee has a son Corey from his first marriage with Audrey Sellers, and was also married to actress Marlene Clark(1968-71).

2 I tell my son Corey that the greatest teacher is the teacher who says, "Don't follow me, follow yourself. Because within you there is that kingdom, that life, that force.".
3 There's always been a lot of misunderstanding about Lando's character. I used to pick up my daughter from elementary school and get into arguments with little children who would accuse me of betraying Han Solo.
