Martin Freeman Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Martin John Christopher Freeman  was born on 8 September, 1971 in Aldershot, Hampshire, England.  Martin is perhaps best known from the British sitcom television series “The Office”, the television crime drama series “Sherlock”, and from the American crime-comedy television series “Fargo”. For fantasy adventure film fans, Martin Freeman is a popular star of “The Hobbit” film trilogy.

Martin`s filmography includes various genres of movies: he also appeared in romantic comedy “Love Actually” (2003) and in “Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy” directed by Edgar Wright. Among these, Martin Freeman net worth was increased by many other famous performances.

So just how rich is this popular British actor, Martin Freeman? Sources say that Martin has managed to accumulate a net worth estimated at $15 million throughout his career as an actor since 1997.

Martin Freeman Net Worth $15 Million

Martin Freeman attended Salesian School in Chertsey, and was later a student at Brooklands College where he was studying for a degree in media studies. However, Freeman had started his career in acting with a youth theatre group when he was 15 years old, so only a couple of years into his degree, Martin realized he wanted to dedicate his life to acting and so switched to attending the Central School of Speech and Drama.

Martin Freeman started his net worth growing in 1997 when his career began on television. Most notably, Martin appeared in such TV series as “The Bill” (1997), “Casualty” (1998), “Lock, Stock…” (2000), “Helen West” (2002), “The Robinsons” (2006), “When Were We Funniest?” (2008), and “Boy Meets Girl” (2009). Since 2010 up to the present he has been appearing in “Sherlock”, and in “Fargo” (2014). There is no question that this long list of popular TV series’ has helped Martin Freeman to live a luxurious life through increasing his net worth.

Martin`s first film role was in the 1998 short film “I Just Want to Kiss You”. The film list to Martin’s credit is even longer than that of the TV series – over 40 in all, compared with more than 20 TV series and shows, but comprising many episodes of course – so in part accounts for why is Martin Freeman is so wealthy. The best known movies Martin Freeman has appeared in include “Ali G Indahouse” (2002), “Call Register” (2004), “The Good Night” (2007), and “Nativity!” (2009). Martin Freeman’s net worth was enlarged in 2012 when the actor starred in “The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists!” along with Salma Hayek and Hugh Grant.

Martin Freeman has been nominated for more than 40 awards, too, and has won 15, some as part of a cast award. These achievements certainly acknowledge his acting talent. Five of these are for “The Hobbitt” alone, including a Stella Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role. Other notable awards are the Phoenix Film Critics Society for Best Cast for “Love Actually”, and also a Rose d`Or Award for Best Male Comedy Performance in “Hardware”.

In his personal life, Martin Freeman has lived with his partner and colleague Amanda Abbington since 2000. They have performed in many productions together, for example in “The Debt”, “The Robinsons”, “Sherlock”, and “The All Together”. In 2006 they welcomed their first child, named Joe, and in 2008 a daughter named Grace.

1 I've been doing interviews for years, and in all that time, I've virtually never read one and gone, 'Yep, factually and tonally that's exactly what happened.' Pretty much never.
2 On Billy Bob Thornton: I love watching Billy Bob, just as a punter anyway. I like his work. But working with him is really easy and really straight-forward. He's immediately good. He doesn't have to work up to it. He doesn't make your life difficult. He listens. He's a very good listener, in terms of his acting.
3 I've got a stag weekend coming up and I've said I'm not doing anything more than a few drinks. I won't have it. I'll go home and watch Antiques Roadshow.
4 With superheroes and comics and fantasy and Sci-Fi being absolutely the popular currency in cinema, it's like people have said in endless magazines, it's the revenge of the geeks and all that. There's some truth in that.
5 I've always been attracted to darkness.
6 When people bully us, we are complicit in it in some way. We do allow it to happen to some extent.
7 Your slippers last a lot longer in your bedroom. On a film set, they do get very scuffed up.
8 If you are a plumber, you can work on a shed, or you can work on a mansion. It's just scale.
9 When I wear jeans I want to look like a man, not a child.
10 I think the world needs to see more of my face.
11 I'm always interested with other actors in what their process is, and are they still interested in acting, as opposed to being a star.
12 I wanted to be an actor because I saw Dog Day Afternoon (1975) you know what I mean?
13 I'm afraid I don't have a very pragmatic or unromantic view of props. I don't imbue them with any great sense of mystery or anything.
14 I think the only directing I'd be any good at is theatre directing. It's the only thing I can see myself doing.
15 I think the hardest part about anything you do for 18 months is just keeping yourself together for 18 months.
16 I love eating. I mean, I really, really love eating.
17 I don't write anything off without reading a script, and if it's a good one, I'll consider it, whether it's for $20 or a million dollars.
18 I like uncertainty in roles, and I like uncertainty in art, really.
19 I love home. I'd rather be at home than anywhere else.
20 Being a mod is more of a sensibility than a style.
21 I'm geek royalty now.
22 I don't think it was a surprise that I ended up as an actor, and it was anything but a disappointment.
23 Humor is - how do I say this without sounding pompous - it's a huge part of my life.
24 I've got an overly developed sense of what selling out is, and I of course worry about it too much.
25 What makes Shakespeare eternal is his grasp of psychology. He knew how to nail stuff about us as human beings.
26 I'm one of the few people I know who believes in God.
27 Name anything - high-definition TV, computer obsolescence - and I'm pretty much annoyed by it.
28 I hate the fact that so much of our life is computerized rather than mechanized.
29 In London we give ourselves a pat on the back, rightly, for not killing one another, for our prejudice being subtle rather than lethal.
30 Disappointment is an endless wellspring of comedy inspiration.
31 Sherlock (2010) is one of the biggest things I will do, ever - we could never have predicted that level of insanity around the series.
32 I am a fan of the Coen brothers. I'm not a fanatic. I'm a big admirer. They create unique worlds, and there is a real atmosphere to their films. Not everyone can get that. That's a massive part of their appeal: you can recognize them. Like all the great directors or artists, you know it when you see it.
33 I like the quiet life sometimes. I also love a bustling press conference sometimes as well. I love a 600 meter red carpet.
34 Acting is the only thing I'm even vaguely good at and acting is something that I think I do know about.
35 I don't want to be poor, of course. But I try not to make that the guiding force behind whether I choose to do something or not.
36 I've always loved Christmas and that's not really gone away from me from being a child to now. It's always a magical time and I'm unashamed in my love for Christmas.
37 There was very little drama and performance at my school, so I've never forgotten the people who did encourage me and I've thought whether it would be a good idea to even get in touch with them and just say thanks, because they really opened a door for me mentally and emotionally - that's really important.
38 Like any friendship or marriage, familiarity breeds more contempt, and love, and everything.
39 Michael Caine, Tom Courtenay and Al Pacino made me want to act. I've always been interested in men with a vulnerable side.
40 I like things that are simple, such as an alarm clock.
41 I think people just like seeing friendship. I think people like seeing people who just drive each other up the wall, but at same time, can't live without each other.
42 I don't think anyone looks into their family tree and expects it to come up smelling of roses.
43 Any pigeonhole is something to be rebelled against.
44 I value being able to go into a record shop and people leaving me alone.
45 There are lots of things that keep me awake at night, but work isn't one of them. I mean, no-one's going to die if someone doesn't like what I do. So I don't feel a great pressure.
46 People misunderstand me.
47 I don't want to sound like a grumpy old man, but nothing winds me up more than people saying, 'Chill out' to me when I'm irritated!
48 To my mind there are not enough things that show the Nazis as human, as smart people, charismatic people, who are not inhuman naturally. But who are able to be fantastically inhuman when they choose to be.
49 I have a very extreme state of mind. Things are very black or very white.
50 I'm not particularly affable in real life, I have to tell you. I've got that side to me, of course, but that's not all I am.
51 My idea of a good night out is staying in.
52 I think what 'The Hobbit' and Middle-earth deal in are quite universal and timeless themes of honor and love and friendship... so they're things that do resonate with people.
53 I'm not posh or common, I'm in between.
54 I think I'm less gloomy than I used to be - I've got a very supportive other half.
55 I'm a big believer that life changes as much as you want it to.
56 I can spot someone with similar fashion sense to me a mile off.
57 I did a play once where a reviewer said, Martin Freeman is too nice to play a bad guy.' And I thought: 'Well, bad guys aren't always bad guys, you know?' When I see someone play the obvious villain, I know it's false.
58 I would wear a full-length cape if I could get away with it - I do love a good swirl in a fog.
59 Half of us are partly German! Half our language and culture, generally, in Anglo-Saxon terms, is German.
60 Once you've switched that switch [commitment], then, though you notice that other people are great, you're just not interested.
61 My mum was Labour-voting, but wanted us to know we were important. Basically, everyone's equal, but you, my children, are a bit better.
62 I'm not a practicing Catholic or I wouldn't be living unwed with a woman, and I don't think all poofs are going to hell, and I don't think everyone who's had an abortion is damned, most of my friends are atheists and I understand atheism, I get it, but I happen to be a theist. I believe in our answerableness to something else.
63 I don't think it was a surprise that I ended up as an actor, and it was anything but a disappointment. My parents gave me the knowledge that reading isn't a bad thing, and admitting to liking a painting doesn't make you an arse-bandit. And that wouldn't have been a problem either.
64 Some people have that roar in their head, but I'm not sure I ever did. That live-fast-die-young thing. No one wants it really - Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin - it's not good. I want to live with Amanda till I'm 70. I was never the kid that went all the way with naughtiness, never got caned or in serious trouble. I always knew when to pull back.
65 Most people have a passive relationship with music and clothes, with culture. But music was my first contact with anything creative. Music is it, as far as I'm concerned.
66 If I could get bands to come and play in my house, I'd like that. I've never been to a festival. I'm a creature of habit, mashed-potato comfort, I like rugs. Our sofa's squishy. Maybe too squishy - it's hard to get up sometimes.
67 God, no. I don't do any of that shit [partying with celebrities]. I've got a stag weekend coming up and I've said I'm not doing anything more than a few drinks. I won't have it. I'll go home and watch Antiques Roadshow (1997).
68 Why does everyone have to pretend to be stupid and not know long words?
