Marilu Henner spent her childhood in the Logan Square neighborhood located on the northwest side of Chicago, the third of six children of Joseph Pudlowski and Loretta Callis, who was known not only as a president of the National Association of Dance and Affiliated Arts, but also as a founder of the Henner Dance School. Thus, she began dancing when she was only two years old, and after that, she became a teacher at the school, and worked there until she left her hometown. She went to Madonna High School, after which she enrolled at the University of Chicago. During college, she created the role of Marty in the show “Grease” in 1971. As the show was moved to Broadway, she was offered to reprise the role; unfortunately, she declined to become a member of the national touring company, even with John Travolta in the crew. Subsequently, she appeared alongside him in the musical “Over Here!”, and soon after Marilu moved to the movie screens.

Her professional acting career began in 1977, when she made her debut appearance in the film “Between The Lines”, which was followed with another role in “Bloodbrothers” (1978). In the same year, she was chosen for the role of Elaine O’Connor Nardo in the TV sitcom “Taxi”, which lasted until 1983, and since then, Marilu’s career has only gone upwards, as well as her net worth.

Furthermore, in 1991 she starred in the role of Trudi in the film “L.A. Story”, for which she was nominated for an American Comedy Award in the category the Funniest Supporting Female in a Motion Picture. She also made an appearance in “Noises Off” (1992), and seven years later in “Man On The Moon”. All of these roles added a lot to her net worth.

The new millennium didn’t change too much for Marilu, as she continued successfully appearing in a number of TV and film titles, such as “Good Behavior” (2004), portraying Sydney Lake, “The Glades” (2013), as Joan Longworth, and in “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (2014), playing Vivian Ludley. Her net worth is certainly rising.

Apart from her career as an actress, Marilu is also recognized as a TV and radio host. She began in 1994, as the host of her own talk show named “Marilu”.
