What is Lucas Hedges Net Worth?

The question that many people are wondering about is the Hollywood star’s net worth. Many people know him from Manchester by the Sea, but what else has he been up to recently? This article will answer that question and give you some more information on who Lucas Hedges is.

Lucas Hedges was born in 1996. His birthplace is New York City, and this is where he grew up as well. He has been acting since a young age when he appeared in several short films during his early school years.

Lucas was born to Susan Bruce, a poet-actress, and Peter Hedges, a writer-director. Lucas studied theatre at the North Carolina School of the Arts.

After graduating from high school, Lucas decided to pursue an acting career full-time. In 2015 he graduated from Juilliard School of Drama with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts. That same year saw him land the role to play Tim Mooney on the NBC series The Slap. The movie received mixed reception but still managed to attain renewal for season two. Apparently, it had gained a lot of popularity among certain audiences. After that, Hedges’ next significant role came about shortly after Kenneth Lonergan chose him to star alongside Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams in his award-winning film Manchester by the Sea.

Career

Hedges’s career began at the age of six when he made his feature film debut in “The Baby-Sitters Club.” His breakout performance was as Russell Hammond, lead guitarist of The New Bohemians.

Lucas began his acting career playing supporting roles. The most notable was in Wes Anderson’s comedy-drama Moonrise Kingdom (2012). His notable performance was in the crime biopic Kill the Messenger (2014). By playing a sardonic teenage orphan in Kenneth Lonergan’s drama Manchester by the Sea, Hedges debuted in 2016 and received nominations for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

In 2018, he played a teenager forced into a gay conversion therapy program in Boy Erased and a drug addict in Ben Is Back; both were dramatic flicks. His father’s film, written and directed by him, earned him a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama.

Hedges’s breakthrough role came with 2016’s Manchester by Sea, for which he received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He has also appeared in two other Oscar-nominated movies: 2012’s the Moonrise Kingdom and 2017’s Lady Bird. Other notable performances include supporting roles in Jason Reitman’s 2014 comedy-drama Men, Women & Children and Martin McDonagh’s 2018 drama Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Lucas also starred in the 2018 film “Mid90s”, directed and written by Jonah Hill.

Lucas won the Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Young Performer in 2015 at the age of 17!
