Ever since she was one of the major characters in "Ally McBeal," the beautiful Chinese-American actress has been in the spotlight, having starred in major projects like "Kill Bill" and "Charlie's Angels" - following a career of over twenty years, what is currently Lucy Liu's net worth?
Lately, the actress best known for her role as O-Ren Ishii in the two Quentin Tarantino movies has taken a new challenge: directing. Lucy Liu's net worth has been growing further and further in the past few years, as she not only stars as one of the two main characters in "Elementary," but she's also working behind the scenes.
According to CBS News, the latest news tangentially about Lucy Liu's net worth saw the actress directing her second episode ever of the show last month, and there's something even more interested: throughout the episode, she was also directing zebras!
As UPI reports, the episode was about missing pregnant zebras, so Liu was definitely looking forward to shooting on location, which obviously she can do due to Lucy Liu's net worth; however, production went through one big problem: unexpected snow falling down New York City, making things considerably more difficult for the cast and crew to shoot.
In any case, "Elementary" has been raising Lucy Liu's net worth for a while, ever since the show first started in 2012; reportedly, she's actually making $130 thousand an episode, as the CBS drama is one of the most popular shows currently on television.
"Elementary" is a modern retell of sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "Sherlock Holmes" stories, in which English actor Jonny Lee Miller plays a modern-day Sherlock Holmes working in New York City, while Liu plays a female version of Dr. Watson, his shrink.
Along with BBC's "Sherlock" and the Robert Downey Jr.-led "Sherlock Holmes" movies, it's one of the most popular retells of the classic character.
Currently, Lucy Liu's net worth stands at $16 million according to Celebrity Net Worth, as she amasses an even bigger fortune working on the series.
