Canadian actress and producer, Wendy Crewson, dreamt of becoming an actress since a very young age. The veteran actress made a name for herself in the entertainment industry with many acclaimed performances across film and television. She is popularly recognized as ‘Helen Crowley’ from the renowned television drama series, ‘Revenge’.
Wendy Crewson Net Worth
In 2019, Wendy will be seen featuring on a new science-fiction-based drama series ‘October Faction’ which will be premiering on Netflix. Today, the immensely talented actress has over 137 acting projects associated with her successful career in entertainment. At 63, the esteemed actress still appears ravishing, flaunting a great height of 5 feet 7 inches (1.7 metres) and a healthy body weight.
It is hard to guess whether Wendy’s divorce with husband Michael has affected her net worth in any way. However, it is without a doubt, that the prominent actress, with almost forty years of professional experience to her credit, has raised herself a fortune worth millions.
Wendy Crewson Children With Michael Murphy
Wendy got married to husband and fellow actor Michael Murphy in 1988. The couple gave birth to two children, a son named Jack Murphy, who was born in 1992, and a daughter, Maggie Murphy, born in 1998.
Very little was ever known of the couple’s romantic life, even though they remained together for over two decades. Strangely, in 2009, the marriage suddenly came to an end as the long-time couple got divorced. With her divorce behind, Wendy eventually revealed herself to the world as a lesbian.
Despite coming out with her sexuality in public, Wendy has chosen not to talk about her dating relationships so far. It remains a matter of speculation whether the actress is seeing anyone at the moment. Today, it is hard to say whether Wendy’s failed marriage was a result of her sexual orientation. But the actress has admitted that her family’s support has played a significant role in her decision to come out.
