Almost a Million Dollars!
Julie McNiven is a hugely popular star given the movies she appeared and the roles she played. From her career, she has managed to earn an estimated net worth of $800,000.
Great actors like Marlon Brando and Al Pacino started from the theatre, same is the case with Julie. She developed an interest in acting after acting in a play while she was in the second grade. It’s been impossible to stop her ever since and the acting insect inside her has grown only bigger.
The Amherst native role on The Babymoon was highly praised as she was pregnant during the shooting of the movie. McNiven said that she used a fake belly during the shooting of the first part of the movie and during the shoot of the second part she was six months into the pregnancy.
The 38-year-old actress came into the limelight after her appearance on Supernatural along with Osric Chau, and Adriane Palicki. Her fight with Amy Gumenick in the final episode gained a lot of popularity and not to forget the romantic scene with Jensen Ackles.
In Stargate Universe, McNiven appeared as Ginn and fans were eagerly waiting to see her; however, the series did not air because the show did not receive enough ratings and the fans were disappointed.
Apart from Supernatural, McNiven has appeared in many TV shows and movies throughout her career including The Babymoon and Go Go Tales. Her fans loved her role as Mona Foster in Fringe, although she only appears in one scene.

The Supernatural hitmaker is about to appear in a highly anticipated movie The Sleeping Negro which will hit the theatres in 2020 and is directed by Skinner Myers. It’s a story of a black man in his mid-30s who feels like an outcast from society due to his skin color.
