Jessica Walter left a large fortune in the wake of her death

With over 60 years working in entertainment and more than 160 acting credits, it's no surprise Jessica Walter left her family an impressive fortune. The beloved Arrested Development star, who is survived by her daughter Brooke Bowman, a senior vice president over at Fox Entertainment, and her grandson, Micah Heymann, per Deadline, proved there is always money in the banana stand with her staggering net worth at the time of her death. 

The actor's estimated fortune is said to be $4 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. However, it's unclear if the figure includes the assets left behind by Walter's late husband Ron Leibman. The pair wed in 1983 and seemed to be going strong until Leibman's death in December 2019 at the age of 82, per The Hollywood Reporter. But while the couple both worked in the entertainment business, they reveled in their accomplishments together. "There are no egos when it comes to our work. We don't compete, we're not trying to prove anything to each other," Walter told the Los Angeles Times in 1986. "I think that's why we got married: We'd both reached a point in our lives where we weren't fighting."
