Who is Kerri Green?
Kerri Lee Green was born on 14 January 1967, in Fort Lee, New Jersey, USA, and is an actress, best known for her roles in films during the 1980s. In that early part of her career, she attracted a huge amount of attention for her work in “The Goonies” and “Lucas”.
The Riches of Kerri Green
How rich is Kerri Green? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $2 million, earned through a successful career in acting. She’s also done work on television, mostly as a guest, and worked as a writer as well as in film production. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings
Very little is known about Kerri as she was growing up, with no information about her family. While she was born in Fort Lee, she grew up in nearby Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey, then attended Pascack Hills High School (PHHS), a public high school that is a part of the Pascack Valley Regional High School District, serving residents in Montvale and the neighboring community of Woodcliff Lake. The school has over 800 students enrolled in a school year – a few students are eligible for free lunch through a program.
It is not known if she aspired to a career in acting at a young age, but it was during this teenage period that she made her breakthrough in acting. She appeared in a string of teen flicks during this period, which earned her a huge amount of popularity.
Rise to Prominence
One of her first projects was the film “Summer Rental”, a comedy film, released through Paramount Pictures in 1985, in which she starred as the daughter of a stressed-out air traffic controller played by John Candy. The project that really brought her to prominence and is considered her breakthrough was released during the same year – entitled “The Goonies”, she played the cheerleader Andrea “Andy” Carmichael who would turn into an adventurer over the course of the film. The film is produced by Steven Spielberg, and follows a group of kids who live in the “Good Docks” neighborhood in Astoria, Oregon. To save their homes from foreclosure, they discover an old treasure map that leads them on an adventure to find the long lost fortune of a 17th century pirate.
She followed it up with a critically acclaimed performance in the 1986 film entitled “Lucas”, in which she was the center of a love triangle between characters played by Charlie Sheen and Corey Haim. The film received generally positive reviews, though it was not a box office success, and she received a nomination for a Young Artist Award for her performance, considered one of the best high school movies of all time by several publications.
In 1987, Kerri didn’t gain very favorable reviews for her performance in the film “Three For The Road” which also featured Alan Ruck and Charlie Sheen, but over the next few years, she would appear in more television projects, including a guest appearance in an episode of “In the Heat of the Night”. She also worked on the independent film called “Blue Flame”, which is about two seductive aliens living inside the head of a police officer. Shortly afterwards, she had a two episode role in the sitcom “Mad About You” played the secretary to Paul Reiser’s character.
After that project, she decided to take a break from acting, and enrolled at Vassar College to study for a degree in Art. During her time there, she was roommates with Marisa Tomei’s brother and video game developer Ken Levine. The college is located in New York and is one of the Seven Sisters, a historic group of elite female colleges in the US, before offering co-education. Later in her career, she did less acting work, and created her own film production company called Independent Women Artists. One of the projects she did as a part of the company was called “Bellyfruit”, which is a film adaptation of a play focused on teen pregnancy.

Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Green is married and has children from that marriage, but she has not talked a lot about her husband or her family. After going to college, she graduated cum laude and remained relatively out of the spotlight. She mentioned in an interview that she wasn’t really good when it came to being emotional on camera, which is why she was thankful for having opportunities that didn’t give her a lot of pressure in that type of acting.
While her production company didn’t prove successful, she remained connected to the entertainment scene as a screenplay writer for Hollywood, but has remained largely inactive when it came to public events. One of the reasons there is very little information about her is due to her lack of any social media presence. She does not have accounts on any of the major social media websites such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. She prefers to keep her life out of the spotlight, and like many teen stars, has moved further towards obscurity in the latter portion of their career.
