The Net Worth of Will Estes

How rich is Will Estes? As of late-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $12 million, mostly earned through a successful career in acting. He’s appeared in numerous other film and television projects throughout his career, and as he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.

Beginnings in Acting

Very little information is available about Will’s early life, his childhood, family, and his education, except that he was raised in Los Angeles, the only child of his mother, an office administrator, and his father, a projectionist.

He landed his first major role in television after auditioning with 700 other kids to play the role of Will McCullough in the series entitled “New Lassie” which would run from 1989 to 1992, after which more opportunities started to open up for him, and he appeared in other television series including “Baywatch”, “Boy Meets World”, “Full House”, “Diagnosis: Murder”, and “7th Heaven” which he had a recurring role.

Later Acting Work

Estes then decided to try his hand at the music video industry, appearing in music videos for various bands. He was a part of the music video for “Objects in the Rear View Mirror May Appear Close Than They Are” by Meat Loaf and was also a part of Bon Jovi’s “It’s My Life” music video. He did most of his stunts in the music video, having been approached by Jon Bon Jovi himself to appear in his music video after Bon Jovi saw his work in “U-571”. This had been his breakout role, as Seaman Ronald “Rabbit” Parker, and around this time, he also did numerous commercials, including for Fruit of the Loom. Over the next few years, he would have guest appearances in other popular series, such as “Santa Barbara” and “Highway to Heaven”. Estes then got the leading role in the Fox series entitled “Reunion”, which followed six best friends over the course of 20 years, with each episode marking another year. During the 20th episode which was the group’s 20th high school reunion, one of them turns out to be dead, but the mystery was never solved as Fox cancelled the series because of low ratings.

In 2007 Will was cast in the short film “Luz Del Mundo” in the role of Jack Kerouac, written and also directed by Ty Roberts.

Estes then tried his hand at photography work, appearing in a couple of photographs in books such as “Hollywood Splash” and “Men Before 10am Too”.

Blue Bloods and Latest Work

In 2010 Will then got one of his most notable roles, as Officer Jamie Reagan in the police procedural drama television series “Blue Bloods”, filmed on location in New York City with occasional references to the nearby suburbs. Thanks to his performance, he was rewarded with a Prism Award for Best Performance in a Drama Series Episode, and won a Golden Honu Award for Actor of the Year in 2015. He had other projects as well while he was a part of “Blue Bloods”, including the television movie “Shadow of Fear” playing the role of Morgan Pierce.

Other projects he has had include films such as “Magic Valley”, “Not Since You”, “Line of Duty”, and “Anchors”. He also had the role of Officer Simon Jansen in the “Dark Knight” trilogy film “The Dark Knight Rises”, all boosting his reputation as well as his net worth.

Relationships and Personal Life

While Estes has never been married, he has been romantically linked to several celebrities over the years. It is known that he briefly dated Jennifer Love Hewitt in 2004, and was even romantically involved with Jodie Sweetin. There are some reports that say that he is engaged to another actress – Rachel Boston – though this has not been confirmed.

During an interview, he mentions that education is one of the greatest tools to help improve knowledge and experience. Aside from acting, he has trained in gymnastics and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, even entering a few competitions. He also enjoys literature, and likes to read books during his free time. He also does a bit of charity work, and has been seen as an advocate of renewable energy, and the humane treatment of animals.
