As of mid-2020, Elizabeth Ludlow’s net worth is estimated to be over $1 million, earned through a successful career in the acting profession since 2013.
She’s had several major box office hits that have helped in building her reputation and so wealth too.
Very little is known about Elizabeth’s youth, except that she aspired for a career in professional acting from a young age. As soon as she completed her studies, she began pursuing professional endeavors, with her first appearance being in the series “The Vampire Diaries” in 2013.
The show is an adaptation of the novel series of the same written by LJ Smith and was very popular for most of its run on The CW. It follows the story of a teenage girl who finds herself in love with a vampire which leads her into the world of the supernatural.
While the show was successful for most of its run, it was apparent that the show was nearing its end following the exit of Nina Dobrev, who played the female protagonist in the show. Elizabeth was a part of its sixth season, just a couple of years before the show was canceled. This did not derail her momentum, however, as she gained more opportunities in the coming years.
Continued Acting Work
In 2014, Ludlow was cast in the television series “Resurrection” which is based on a novel, this time Jason Mott’s “The Returned” which was published the previous year. The show follows the story of a town in which its previous residents start coming back to life.
The show was co-produced by Brad Pitt, and while it had a lot of potential, quickly declining ratings saw it being canceled after two seasons – Elizabeth was only a part of the show for one season.
The following year, she made a guest appearance in “Powers” and was then cast in “Mr. Right”.
The film stars Anna Kendrick and Tim Roth, telling the story of a young woman who discovers that her new boyfriend previously worked as a professional hitman. The film received mixed reviews, and was mainly carried by the popularity of Kendrick. Afterwards, Elizabeth was cast in her next recurring role, playing Mona in “Satisfaction”.
The series is about a married couple – after the man discovers that his wife is cheating on him with a male escort, he secretly becomes an escort himself, and discovers that he still wants to restore his relationship with his wife. The show was canceled after two seasons.
The Walking Dead
In 2016, Elizabeth was cast in one of television’s former beloved series “The Walking Dead”. Based on the comic book series of the same name written by Robert Kirkman, it tells the story of a post-apocalyptic world wherein most of civilization has been overrun by zombies. The show told the story of Rick Grimes, and a group of survivors up to the ninth season, with Rick’s actor Andrew Lincoln deciding to exit the show to spend more time with his family.
During its early years, “The Walking Dead” was one of the most followed shows on television, consistently breaking records with each year.
It helped many of its cast members’ rise to popularity, including Rick Grimes, Chandler Riggs, Steven Yeun, and Danai Gurira. It even helped revive the career of Norman Reedus. However, the show has since experienced a decline following what many describe as uninspired storylines and character deaths that many feel were more for the shock value than for the progression of the story. While the series has no plans of ending any time soon, it no longer has the same audience it once had.
Elizabeth was a part of the show during the war with the group, the Saviors.
In recent years, Ludlow has found more work in mainstream film projects. In 2017, she appeared in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” playing Easik Mother, which is a sequel to 2014’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” seeing most of its cast members return for a continuation of the story. It starred Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and many other big names, and explored more of the origins of Peter Quill’s past. The film was very successful, becoming one of the highest-grossing films of the year.
In 2019, she was cast in the film “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”, playing the role of First Lieutenant Lauren Griffin; the film is a sequel to 2014’s “Godzilla” starring Millie Bobby Brown and Kyle Chandler. The show is expected to continue into a trilogy, as it received a lot of praise for its visual effects as well as its cinematography. However, it received criticism for its characters, pacing, and plot. The film didn’t earn as expected in the box office though a sequel called “Godzilla vs. Kong” is still expected to be released sometime in 2021.
Elizabeth identifies as a part of the LGBT community as seen on her social media profiles.
She has occasionally posted photos with her girlfriend, as they attend public events together; they also own a pet cat. In recent months, she’s been a lot more active online with most of the world under quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic. She spoke out about how her father, a retired doctor, had to go back to work due to the lack of personnel needed to treat the many people affected by the virus. She also recently spoke out as a part of the Black Lives Matter movement, talking about her experiences growing up. She mainly blames a lot of the older generation for teaching younger kids that there is supposed to be a difference between white and black, a practice that has contributed into the ongoing cycle of racial hatred in the US.
