Lindsay Wagner was born to Marilyn Louise, a building contractor, and photographer, William Nowels Wagner, who split when she was seven years old. Later, alongside her mother and mother’s new husband, Lindsay moved to Portland, Oregon, where she matriculated from David Douglas High School. She later enrolled at the University of Oregon, but after one year she transferred to Mount Hood Community College. However, Lindsay Wagner dropped out of college, and returned to LA to pursue her acting career.
Some of her first engagements included more modeling than acting skills, as she has appeared in various television commercials. Lindsay Wagner also served as a hostess in “Playboy After Dark” – Hugh Hefner’s talk show – which was followed with an appearance in “The Dating Game” in 1969. In 1971, Lindsay signed a contract deal with Universal Studios, and in the same year made her TV debut starring in one episode of the police drama, “Adam-12”. These engagements provided the basis for Lindsay Wagner’s net worth.
During the 1970s, Lindsay Wagner managed to maintain a continuous string of side roles in over a dozen various TV series, including “Sarge”, “Owen Marshall: Counselor at Law”, “The F.B.I.”, “Night Gallery”, “Marcus Welby, M.D.” and “The Rockford Files”. In 1973, she debuted on the big screen with the lead role in Robert Wise’s drama, “Two People” which was immediately followed with a support role in 20th Century Fox’s comedy drama – “The Paper Chase”. These roles helped Lindsay Wagner to jump-start her career as well as to increase her wealth.
The real breakthrough in Lindsay Wagner’s career came in 1975 when she appeared as Jaime Summers in “The Six Million Dollar Man”, which was subsequently followed with her own spin-off show, the lead role in “The Bionic Woman”, the Sci-Fi action TV series based on the Martin Caidin’s novel – Cyborg. The show was aired for three seasons, between 1976 and 1978, and for her involvement, Lindsay Wagner was honored with an Emmy Award for The Best Actress in a Dramatic Role in 1977. Doubtlessly, all of these roles made a huge, positive impact on the total wealth of Lindsay Wagner.
After making a name for herself with the roles mentioned above, Lindsay Wagner went on to a long standing and quite illustrious career in which she appeared in almost 15 movies, 25 TV series and 48 TV movies, of which the most famous are “Callie and Son” (1981), “Two Kinds of Love” (1983) and “Ricochet” (1991). It is certain that Lindsay Wagner’s numerous roles have been the main source of her overall net worth.
During the 1980s, as a holistic medicine student and a vegan, Lindsay Wagner published several books, “Lindsay Wagner’s New Beauty: The Acupressure Facelift”, “30-Day Natural Facelift Program”, as well as “The High Road to Health: A Vegetarian Cookbook”. These ventures, certainly, added a lot to Lindsay Wagner’s net worth.
When it comes to her personal life, Lindsay Wagner has been married four times. Prior to her first marriage to Allan Rider in 1971, she lived with a USAF Captain Daniel M. Yoder before he went to Vietnam. In 1973, she divorced Rider, and three years later married Michael Brandon, an actor with whom she spent the next three years before they split in 1979. Between 1981 and 1984, Lindsay was married to “The Bionic Woman” set stuntman Henry Kingi with whom she has two children, both sons. In 1990, she married for the fourth time, to TV producer Lawrence Mortorff, but they also divorced after just three years.
