Here's How Much Matthew Rhys Is Really Worth

Matthew Rhys has had a long and successful career in television, and as a result, he's accumulated a solid net worth. The Welsh actor has had central roles in a number of American television shows and his resume is quite impressive at this point.

Rhys first became known to American audiences during the run of ABC's Brothers and Sisters. The series debuted in 2006 and ran through 2011, and Rhys portrayed the character of Kevin Walker, who happened to be gay. The blockbuster cast included other familiar faces such as Sally Field, Ron Rifkin, and Calista Flockhart, and it earned plenty of praise from viewers and critics.

Brothers and Sisters wrapped up its run in 2011, and Rhys bounced around among a handful of projects for a couple of years after that. In 2013, FX launched The Americans where he co-starred with his now real-life love Keri Russell, and that raised the actor's profile significantly. According to Heavy, Rhys earned $75,000 per episode of the series that ran for 75 episodes and six seasons.

Once The Americans wrapped in 2018, Matthew Rhys again did some short-term stints on various television shows. He was then tapped to play the lead in the reboot of Perry Mason, and he took on both acting and directing roles for the HBO series. He reportedly earned $100,000 per episode for Perry Mason as it launched its first season (via GOBankingRates).

Rhys has earned sizeable paychecks and plenty of accolades

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Matthew Rhys' steady work in the television genre over the years has helped him build a nice nest egg. He is said to be worth an estimated $10 million, and given his successes in recent years, it seems likely that will grow substantially as his star continues to rise.

Rhys has earned not just impressive paychecks for his acting work, but several professional accolades as well. For example, Rhys won an Emmy in 2018 for his work on The Americans. It was his first Emmy win for the role, and third nomination in the category of best actor in a drama series. He also won a Critics' Choice award for best actor in a drama series in 2019, again for his work in The Americans.

By the looks of Rhys' IMDb page, he's not an actor content to lay low and pass up opportunities as they come his way. He may stay busy with ongoing television series such as Perry Mason, but he's also pounced on chances to try new things such as the HBO Max animated series Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai. Given his worth ethic and charisma, it comes as no surprise to Matthew Rhys' fans that his net worth has been steadily on the rise over the past few years.
