Larry Martin Hagman was born on the 21st September 1931, in Fort Worth, Texas, USA of Swedish descent on his father’s side. Larry died at the age of 81 in 2012 in Dallas, Texas, USA. Hangman was a famous television and film actor who rose to the prominence for his well known roles in television series’ “I Dream of Jeannie” (1965-1970) and “Dallas” (1978-1991). What is more, he worked as a director and producer which was also a significant source of his income. Additionally, he worked in the film industry playing various roles. Overall, Larry Hangman spent more than 60 years working in the entertainment industry, from 1950 to 2012.

Larry Hagman Net Worth $15 Million

So, was Larry Hagman rich? It has been estimated by sources that he had a net worth of $15 million, partly accumulated from a minimum of $75,000 per TV episode. As a result, he could afford to live luxuriously.

Larry Hagman was born into the family of a celebrity and lawyer: his mother, Mary Martin was a popular Broadway actress. When Larry was five years old, his parents divorced, and as his mother was engrossed in her career, Larry spent most of the time with the grandmother. When the grandmother died, he lived with his father for a while, but studied at boarding school. After graduation from Weatherford High School, Hagman decided to pursue an acting career, too. The first role Larry landed was at The Woodstock Playhouse in 1950. Afterwards, he appeared in the musical “South Pacific” alongside his mother. However, in 1952 Larry joined the US Air Force which meant a pause in his acting career.

After military service, in 1956 Hagman returned to firstly off-Broadway, and then Broadway, in various plays for a number of years. However, Larry only became famous after his entrance into Hollywood. The role of Tony Nelson landed in the sitcom “I Dream of Jeannie” (1965-1970) was the first series that made him recognized, famous – including acting with Barbara Eden – and contributed significant amounts to his net worth. Then, he appeared in a number of television films as follows: “Three’s a Crowd” (1969), “The Hired Hand” (1971), “Getting Away from It All” (1972) and others. In addition to this, he continued his career appearing in various series including “Here We Go Again” (1973), “The Rhinemann Exchange” (1977), and “The Rockford Files” (1977). However, Larry then portrayed J.R. Ewing in another very successful series, “Dallas” (1978-1991), which had high ratings throughout its existence, with fans also captivated by the revival of characters in the films “Dallas: The Early Years” (1986), “Dallas: J.R. Returns” (1996), “Dallas: War of the Ewings” (1998) and finally the sequel television series “Dallas” (2012–2013). Larry’s last appearances on television screens include a role in the series “Orleans” (1997) and a guest role in the “Desperate Housewives” (2011).

Additionally, Larry Hagman was popular in the cinema industry. In 1966, Larry landed a role in the feature film “The Group” (1966) directed by Sidney Lumet. Furthermore, in 1972 he debuted as a director of the film “Beware! The Blob”. Other appearances on the big screen include films “Fail-Safe” (1964), “Harry and Tonto (1974), “S.O.B.” (1981), “The Eagle Has Landed” (1976), and “Nixon” (1995) which also increased his net worth.

Larry Hagman was faithful to his profession and devoted to it. However, what is most important, he was loving and loyal to the only woman in his life, his wife, Maj Axelsson. They married in 1954 and lived happily until his death. The family has two children.

Larry Hagman died because of complications caused by his illness, leukaemia.

2 Was known to throw parties for the cast and crew at his home whenever tensions ran high on set.
3 His character J.R. Ewing was so hated that Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceauescu allowed ''Dallas'' to be one of the few series shown in his country and paid Hagman to show his image throughout the country as he saw his character as epitomizing the very worst of American capitalism and hoped it would turn people against the idea.
4 Was close friends with Hunter von Leer.
5 Was 1 month younger than his I Dream of Jeannie (1965) co-star Barbara Eden.
6 He played the same character (J.R. Ewing) on three different series: Dallas (1978), Knots Landing (1979) and Dallas (2012).

8 Used to live in the same area as Michael Landon.
9 On I Dream of Jeannie (1965), he played an astronaut who was a member of the United States Air Force, in real-life, Hagman served in the United States Air Force.

12 Met a young, unfamiliar actor Patrick Duffy in the movie, Hurricane (1974), before Hagman co-starred with him on Dallas (1978), opposite Hagman as his younger brother.
13 He was not David Jacobs's first choice to audition for the male lead role of J.R. Ewing on Dallas (1978), when Robert Foxworth had been offered the role. Knowing he would not play a character that was absolutely unsympathetic, Hagman immediately came in and won the role.
14 His show Dallas (1978) was canceled at the end of the fourteenth season because of low ratings.
15 Before he was a successful actor, he used to dance with Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara, on the opening night of South Pacific at the Savoy in London, England.
16 Before he was a successful actor, he met and used to work with a young unfamiliar actor Carroll O'Connor, who was working as an assistant stage manager for the Broadway play 'God and Kate Murphy,' in which Hagman starred.
17 Was also a solar power enthusiast.
18 In order for Hagman to get the role of Maj. Anthony Nelson in I Dream of Jeannie (1965), he did the voice-over in Russian for the show The Rogues (1964). He was also convinced to get the role when Gig Young was unavailable, hence, Hagman won the role.

24 His parents were divorced when he was only 5 years old.
25 A cowboy buff.
26 His parents were Mary Martin, who was a popular Broadway actress and Benjamin Hagman, a lawyer.
27 His ex-Dallas (1978) co-star and friend Joan Van Ark attended his 80th birthday party in 2011, despite not being a regular castmember.
28 Met Donna Mills on The Good Life (1971), where the two remained best friends for 41 years until Hagman's death in 2012.
29 Had guest-starred on the second episode of Dallas (1978)'s spin-off series Knots Landing (1979), as JR Ewing.

#Quote
1 [referring to his choice of final resting place for his ashes] I want to be spread over a field and have marijuana and wheat planted and harvest it in a couple of years and then have a big marijuana cake, enough for 200 or 300 people. People eat a little of Larry.
2 About co-star Linda Gray after her divorce: Maj and I kind of adopted her. She was here at the house nearly every day. We'd call her first thing in the morning to make sure she was alright, we'd make sure she had dinner every night.
3 People I meet really want me to be J.R., so it's hard to disappoint them.
4 I was born with success. Lucky for me I am able to handle it. Also, I damn well deserve it!
5 (On the infamous "Who Shot J.R?" episode): "Before that fateful shot rang out, I was merely bemused by the success of the character. Villainy could be fun, and that's how I played it. And if it worked. I mean I couldn't go down to the corner to pick up my copy of the Sunday New York Times without running into some nubile creature with "J.R. for President" emblazoned across her chest. Now a higher, shriller note had been added. People who once merely wanted J.R.'s autograph demanded to know who shot him as if it were their birthright, and were angry and upset when I told them, truthfully, that I didn't know."
6 I spent five years in England, I went over there with my mother in the show South Pacific and I just love it. I go back there three or four times a year. I joined the American airforce because the Korean war was going on at one time and I got my call up papers and I was supposed to report back to the United States and get my ass shot off in Korea which I didn't think was a smart idea and not only that I couldn't understand what the war was all about, I guess a lot of people could at that time but I still can't even more than I can the Vietnam war, so anyhow I enlisted in the American airforce and I was stationed in London for four years which was pretty good because I never gave up my civilian apartment in St Johns Wood. I got married, met a Swedish girl there, we've been married 46 years now.
7 Barbara Eden is the most beautiful girl in the world.
8 I made money. Enough so I don't have to work again. But I'd like to, I really would. But I'd want to do something interesting like Santa Claus
  • or God.
9 "I've been on some loony shows in my time, but this one takes the cake." - when appearing on the BBC's Shooting Stars, February 2002.
