Rebecca Schull Net Worth $2 Million


Rebecca is the older child born to Rachel Gutman and her husband Judah Wattenberg, who worked as a real estate attorney. Her younger brother was Ben Wattenberg, a successful writer, best known to the world for his commentaries on politics and for serving as an advisor to the 38th USA President Hubert Humphrey and Congressman and Senator, Henry M. Jackson.

Before she started pursuing her acting career, Rebecca finished high school and enrolled at the New York University, from which she later obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts. Also, she studied acting in Dublin, Ireland for a time, before returning to the USA. She started her career in the mid- ‘70s with a few minor roles in the theater, and then in 1980 made her screen debut in the television film “Yulya’s Diary”. The same year she played Anne Bardenhagen in the television film “A Private Battle”, and two years later secured a recurring role in the soap opera “One Life to Live” (1982-1983), as Twyla Ralston. Rebecca spent the ‘80s building a name for herself in several television films, such as the drama “Stone Pillow” (1985), then “Trapped in Silence” (1986), and finished the decade with a minor role in Woody Allen’s Academy Award-nominated comedy drama “Crimes and Misdemeanors” (1989), starring Martin Landau and Bill Bernstein. Her net worth was certainly now well established.

It was in 1990 that she made her breakthrough with the role of Fay Cochran in the sitcom “Wings”, and over the next seven years appeared in all 172 episodes, with the main cast of Tim Daly, Steven Weber and Crystal Bernard. The particular role increased her wealth to a large degree but also launched her into the industry. During her time in the sitcom, Rebecca was rather active in searching for other engagement, and as a result made several notable appearances, including in the drama “My Life” (1993) as Rose Ivanovich, next to Michael Keaton, Nicole Kidman and Bradly Whitford, among other stars of the film. Also, before the end of the decade, Rebecca starred in the drama film “Holiday in Your Heart”, which certainly increased her wealth, and featured in the comedy crime film “Analyze This”, with Robert De Niro, Billy Crystal and Lisa Kudrow as stars of the film.

With the start of the new millennium, Rebecca fell into the second tier, and only managed to secure minor roles, but still featured in several blockbusters, such as the Academy Award-nominated thriller drama “United 93” (2006), and the romantic drama “Little Children”, the same year, with Kate Winslet, Jennifer Connelly and Patrick Wilson in the lead roles.

In 2010 she played Katherine in the drama “Twelve Thirty”, and the next year was chosen for the role of Edith Ross, grandmother of the lead protagonist Michael Ross in the TV drama series “Suits” (2011-2015), which also added to her net worth. Proving that there is still fire in her eyes, Rebecca portrayed Emma in the TV romantic drama “Chasing Life” (2014-2015), while most recently she was Rose in the TV series “Crisis in Six Scenes” (2016), created by Woody Allen, and will star in the drama film “The Last”, directed by Jeff Lipsky, scheduled for a 2018 release.

Regarding her personal life, Rebecca was married to Eugene Arnold Schull from 1951 until his death in 2008; she had a son and two daughters with her now deceased husband.
