The Net Worth of Jane Sibbett

As of early-2020, Jane Sibbett’s net worth is estimated to be over $2 million, earned largely through a successful career in acting, in the profession since 1985 – she’s worked on numerous films during her career as well, and made guest appearances in numerous popular shows, though in recent years she’s been more focused on film work.

Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings

Jane grew up the youngest of five children. While she was born in Berkeley, the family later moved to the San Francisco Bay, to Alameda Island which is adjacent to Oakland. At a young age, she aspired to a career in acting, and after matriculating enrolled at the University of California, Los Angeles where she further developed her interest. The university is one of the largest and most applied-to universities in the US.

After completing her degree, she stayed in LA auditioning for roles, until she got her first part in the soap opera “Santa Barbara”, which she was in from 1986 to 1987, playing the role of Jane Wilson.

The show follows the lives of a wealthy family and other families associated with them. Thanks to her performances, she was nominated for a Soap Opera Digest Award for Best Newcomer.

Continued Acting Work and Herman’s Head

Sibbett was then cast in the CBS show “The Famous Teddy Z”, in which she worked alongside Alex Rocco and Jon Cryer. The show is inspired by the true story of agent Jay Kantor, who first worked as a mailroom clerk before eventually becoming the agent of star actor Marlon Brando. The show was short-lived, only lasting for a season.

She was then cast in one of her early notable roles in the show “Herman’s Head”, portraying a blonde bombshell who is conscious about her status.

The sitcom aired on Fox, and starred William Ragsdale as the titular Herman Brooks. The show follows the story from the perspective of the main character with some of his decisions being dramatized through a Greek chorus, where parts of his personality interact with each other. Jane had the role of a co-worker of Herman, part of their company’s research department as a fact-checker. She is often seen trying to manipulate the main character due to her obsession with status. However, despite all her efforts, she often loses to Herman in the end. Later on, the two become friends and even start a romance that was short-lived, due to their conflicting ideals.

Friends

In 1994 Jane’s fame continued to grow as she became a part of the series “Friends”, appearing as a recurring character for the next seven years. The sitcom is considered one of the most beloved and popular television shows of all time, with numerous honors along with awards to its name. It tells the story of a group of six friends living in Manhattan, New York City, who go about their lives during their 20s and 30s. The show made every regular cast member a star, though very few of them managed to capitalize on their fame afterwards.

Jane’s character only appeared in around 15 episodes, so during this time she took on other projects, such as the sitcom “If Not for You” in which she was a regular cast member, but it was short-lived, being canceled in the same year. She then had a role during the second season of “Nick Freno: The Licensed Teacher”, in which she reunited with “Herman’s Head” co-star Hank Azaria. During that season, she portrayed the former fiancée of the main character, a school headmaster.

Recent Projects

As the years progressed, Sibbett focused mostly on television work, appearing as a guest in various shows such as “The Nanny” and “21 Jump Street”.

In the 1990s, she was in a string of movies, including a television adaptation of “Noah” taken from the Bible. She also worked on the movie “The Second Arrival”, a sequel to 1996’s “The Arrival” but released straight-to-video. She also worked alongside John Terry in “The Resurrected”, an adaptation of “The Case of Charles Dexter Ward” written by HP Lovecraft. The film’s story focuses on the titular character who becomes obsessed with an ancestor to the point at which he starts replicating his ancestor’s past experiments.

After working on several more films, Jane then focused on production work, creating the company Wild Aloha Studios, responsible for creating four documentaries, all focused on the faith healer Braco.

Of Croatian descent, Braco rose to fame internationally due to his alleged ability to heal people using his gaze. Numerous reports have credited him for leading to the betterment of many of his patients, though many critics believe that this is fabricated, as no evidence has been truly provided that he has healing capabilities. She’s taken fewer acting roles in the last few years, and has been more focused on working as a director in theatre. Some of her recent productions include “The Vagina Monologues” and “SHE’ISLAND”.

Personal Life

Jane met writer Karl Fink during her time in the series “Herman’s Head”, which he worked on during its first two seasons. They married in 1992 after several years of being in a relationship, and have three children together. However, in 2016 it was announced that the couple had divorced. Since then, there have been no new relationships reported for Jane. Aside from acting, she is a big advocate on domestic violence awareness, and helping victims of it. She runs the LA-based 1736 Family Crisis Center, which aims to assist survivors of these types of attacks.
