Who is Richard Beymer from “Twin Peaks”?
Born George Richard Beymer, Jr. under the sign of Pisces on the 20th of February 1938, in Avoca, Iowa USA, Richard Beymer is a multi-talented 80-year-old Caucasian actor, painter, sculptor, novelist, cinematographer, director, editor, writer, soundtrack creator, producer and filmmaker. He is perhaps best known for portraying the real-estate mogul Benjamin Horne in David Lynch’s legendary TV series “Twin Peaks,” and has had a number of other roles in a variety of films and TV shows throughout his acting career in the often lucrative entertainment business since 1949, and now numbering more than 70.
Early Life and Education
Richard was born to a printer father named George Richard Beymer, and a mother named Eunice (nee Goss). His family moved to Hollywood, Los Angeles, California only two-and-a-half years after his birth, so that is where he grew up. There is a lack of information regarding interests and hobbies Richard had in his early youth, but there is the fact that he was included in the acting empire of Hollywood while he was still attending North Hollywood High School, and since he was already a full-fledged actor by the time he matriculated, he never actually attended college.
The Biggest Self-Critic
Although most would claim that his part in “West Side Story” is the role of his life, Richard thinks otherwise. He actually hates his performance there, and that came as a surprise to everyone during the premiere. He and his crew were in London, seeing their film on the big screen for the first time, after which they were supposed to be introduced to Queen Elizabeth II herself, however, Richard didn’t care much for that, and apparently left mid-premiere because he couldn’t stand to watch his own performance.
Civil Rights Advocate
Beymer paused his acting career at some point in 1964, going to Mississippi as a volunteer in the civil rights movement in the summer that was later titled “Freedom Summer” – the goal of the event was to provide African-Americans with voting rights in the said state. Richard at that point brought a Bolex camera along and shot a significant amount of footage, which he would later edit into the documentary film entitled “A Regular Bouquet: Mississippi Summer,” later borrowed for many other documentaries on the same subject, such as “Freedom Summer” and “Eyes on the Prize.”
Richard has quite a few documentaries behind his name today, one of the most unique from 2014 entitled “It’s a Beautiful World”, in which he goes on a journey to India with his long-time colleague and “Twin Peaks” mastermind David Lynch, as the two explore the origins of transcendental meditation.
In 2007, Richard self-published his first literary work, a semi-autobiographical tale about an actor’s difficulties in life, finding oneself in the world, entitled “Impostor: Or Whatever Happened to Richard Beymer?.” Although he only speaks of an acting career here, he has had numerous successes in various other artistic professions.
What is Richard Beymer’s Net Worth?
Have you ever wondered how rich Richard Beymer is, as of mid-2018? According to various authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the current total of Richard’s accumulated wealth is close to $18 million; his current income remains undisclosed. This figure has been largely aided by his numerous successes in the acting industry, while the greatest contribution is likely from his long-term screen presence in “Twin Peaks.” As his career continues, the said amount may be expected to increase.
Concerning the physical attributes of the actor, it is reputed by various sources that his height stands at a tall 6ft 2ins (1.88m), but all other measurements are unknown. His hair is dark brown and his eyes are blue, while his body shape is generally described as regular.
Social Media Presence
Due to the major influence of social networks, it is nowadays a regular thing for active actors to nourish a close and active relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing the popularity of the titles they’re working on, and thus their own net worth. However, it looks like Richard doesn’t at all care for this celebrity trend, as his presence on the main social media networks is practically non-existent. Any Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts are nowhere to be found, but there are a few fan pages on the said networks dedicated to him, but none are maintained and/or interacted with by Richard himself.
