The childhood of the actor wasn’t straight-forward; together with his nine siblings, he was raised in the orphanage as his mother died in 1950 and father could not handle the burden. He was educated at Chaminade High School, and afterwards he moved to New York in order to pursue a career in acting, even though his father disapproved this. The passion for acting was so strong that he deliberately failed the exam to enter the University of Dayton, as a result spending years at the Living Theatre Company. Subsequently however, his passion for acting resulted in much revenue to the total size of Martin Sheen’s net worth. His stage name Martin Sheen also has its own history, as he took one part of it from the name of Robert Dale Martin, the CBS casting director who helped him at the very beginning, and another part from the name of the televangelist Fulton J. Sheen, who inspired him spiritually.

Talking about his career, he rose to prominence after landing roles in the crime film “Badlands” (1973), directed and written by Terrence Malick, and the iconic war film “Apocalypse Now” (1979), directed and produced by Francis Ford Coppola. For his role in the latter, the actor was nominated for BAFTA and American Movie Awards as the Best Lead Actor. Up until now, Sheen has created more than 120 roles in feature films, among which have been appearances in the very successful films “Gettysburg” (1993), “The Departed” (2006), and “The Amazing Spider-Man” (2012). Currently, he is working on the set of the upcoming feature films “Trash”, “The 33” and the documentary film “Unity” which will also increase the size of Martin Sheen net worth. Overall, Sheen has appeared in an astonishing 115 movies, so his versatility, and popularity at the box office is unquestioned, and has also consistently added to his net worth.

In addition to this, Sheen has landed a successful career on television. His notable works there include roles in the television series “CBS Schoolbreak Special” (1980–1996), “Murphy Brown” (1988–1998), “The West Wing” (1999–2006) and “Two and a Half Men” (2003–2015). Sheen also landed parts in the well known television films “Taxi!!!” (1978), “The Guardian” (1985), “Nightbreaker” (1990), and miniseries “Blind Ambition” (1980) as well as “Kennedy” (1984). Martin’s appearances total almost 40.

Martin’s voice is easily recognised by the documentary lovers as he narrated a number of them including “Secrets of the Titanic” (1986), “Taylor’s Campaign” (1998), “Winning New Hampshire” (2004), “Death by China” (2012) and many other, more than 50 altogether. On the whole, television is a very important source when it comes to accumulating the net worth of Martin Sheen.

Finally, does Sheen have time for a personal life? Fortunately perhaps, this has been very stable of the actor, as he married Janet Templeton in 1961, and they have four children, all of whom have become actors. Currently, he has ten grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.

# Quote
1 [2011] I would say that maybe there are a dozen films I’ve done that are of significant worth and that were great experiences. But you should see the other 90%! The vast majority of them were to pay the bills. I don’t think there’s any actor who’s been around as long as I have that wouldn’t agree that a lot of what we do is for the money. You have to be honest about that. Because then when you do land something extraordinary like Apocalypse Now (1979), Badlands (1973), or The West Wing (1999), you *knowthis is something really special.
2 [on his stance on abortion] I cannot make a choice for a women, particularly a black or brown or poor pregnant woman. I would not make a judgment in the case. As a father and a grandfather, I have had experience with children who don’t always come when they are planned, and I have experienced the great joy of God’s presence in my children, so I’m inclined to be against abortion of any life. But I am equally against the death penalty or war – anywhere people are sacrificed for some end justifying a means. I don’t think abortion is a good idea. I personally am opposed to abortion, but I will not judge anybody else’s right in that regard because I am not a woman and I could never face the actual reality of it.
3 James Dean had such a powerful effect on my generation. I’d love to have worked with him. I did a TV pilot with Sal Mineo once and I drove him crazy asking about Dean. He’d disappear when he saw me coming. On the last day, he came to my trailer. I said, “Sal, come on in!” He said, “No, no. I just wanted to say goodbye.” I said, “Well, it was a pleasure working with you.” As he walked away, he looked over his shoulder and said, “He would’ve liked you.”
4 The last thing that really turned me upside down was [Robert De Niro] in Raging Bull (1980) – a transcendent performance. It tells us that if you’re not able to forgive, this is where you end up: in a dark cell.
5 I don’t like scary films. I watched Psycho (1960) for the first time recently, alone in the house at night. That was a mistake. I had to call my friend to come over.
6 I was shooting a movie in Rio this summer. I was at a street food place and four boys came up. They were pooling their money to buy something. I said to the counter guy, “Give them whatever they want.” One of them, the leader, looked at me and I thought, “My God. That’s me as a child.”
7 [on the troubles his son Charlie Sheen has been experiencing] All of us have a repository of emotional life. We have a licence to explore that private pain and bring it public, but only for the purpose of playing a character. It’s called emotional memory. This one is very difficult because it’s so deeply personal and painful.
8 [on filming The Way (2010) on the Camino di Santiago de Compostela] Pilgrimage is structured so it takes you out of your comfort zone. You pack all the things you need and soon you realize it’s too heavy and have to start unpacking. Then the transcendence starts on stuff you’ve packed in your interior life, and you begin opening those closets and cells and dungeons and letting all the people out you’ve been punishing all your life.
9 [on missing out on the role of Michael Corleone in The Godfather (1972)] I was wrong for it but you never pass up an opportunity. I remember saying to Francis Ford Coppola – that was not the first time I had met him – “If you don’t use Al Pacino in this part, it would be like benching Joe DiMaggio in his prime.”
10 [on changing his name] I never changed it officially. I never will. It’s on my driver’s license and passport and everything: Ramon Gerard Estevez. I started using Sheen, I thought I’d give it a try, and before I knew it, I started making a living with it and then it was too late. In fact, one of my great regrets is that I didn’t keep my name as it was given to me. I knew it bothered my dad.
11 Whenever I would call for an appointment, whether it was a job or an apartment, and I would give my name, there was always that hesitation and when I’d get there, it was always gone. So I thought, I got enough problems trying to get an acting job, so I invented Martin Sheen. I’ve never changed my name; it’s still Estevez officially.
12 I adored Mr. Clinton. And he was a fan of The West Wing (1999). For a while, we were given carte Blanche at the White House, which ended when Bush got in – ended for me anyway. When the new administration got into power, all my “West Wing” colleagues were invited there to meet their counterparts. All except me. I was very relieved about that.
13 I consider myself a liberal Democrat, but I’m against abortion.
14 [on son Charlie Sheen] No father could ever be prouder of his son. I hold Charlie’s accomplishments dearer than my own. He has been through so much and overcome so much more. Even if he weren’t my son he’d still be my best friend.
15 [on his political activism and arrests for protests] I love my country enough to suffer its wrath.
16 I love being Spanish as much as I love being Irish, and I really love being Irish.

6 On the TV Show Who do you think you are? Martin Sheen found some interesting things about his family. He traced some of his fathers ancestors in Spain and found out his fourth great grandfather was a Don who had an extramarital affair with Martins fourth great grandmother and had six kids with her. After doing some more digging, they found out he was a judge and found a court case he tried about a girl who had an affair with a cleric and had an abortion. Unbelievably, while doing the genealogy, it turned out that the girl was also his fourth great-grandmother. 150 years after the court case, their second great grandchildren married each other and became Martins grandparents.
