Emmy Award-winning American actor Laurence Fishburne has an estimated net worth of $20 million.

The dramatic actor received widespread acclaim and an Oscar nomination for his searing performance as the Svengali-like Ike Turner in the Tina Turner biopic What’s Love Got To Do With It (1993) and has amassed an impressive number of credits playing leading and supporting roles on stage, screen, and television.

Born in Augusta, Georgia, the only child of a corrections officer and a teacher, Fishburne was raised in Brooklyn after his parents divorced. An unusually sensitive child with a natural gift for acting, he was drawn to various New York stage auditions before getting his first professional role at age ten. Two years later, he made his feature film debut with a leading role in Cornbread, Earl and Me (1975). A turning point in the young actor’s career came when he lied about his age and secured the role of a young Navy gunner in Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now. On location in the Philippines, the teenage actor effectively said goodbye to childhood as he endured the many legendary problems that beset Coppola’s production over the next two years.

Returning to Hollywood in the late 70s, he continued to play small supporting roles in features and television. Like many black actors, he was often relegated to playing roles of thugs and young hooligans. In 1999, he ventured into blockbuster territory with his lead role in the stylish science-fiction action film The Matrix.
