The Net Worth of Meaghan Oppenheimer

Meaghan’s net worth is estimated at close to $5 million as of mid-2024, and with her husband, who reputedly has an estimated $6 million in the bank, leads a very comfortable life.

Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings

Meaghan was raised in Tulsa, where she developed a strong passion towards working in films and television programs. While she did consider an acting career, she was more interested in writing stories. Her time in Oklahoma would help build her experience, as she worked on several theatre productions in the locality. She attended Holland Hall, affiliated with the Oklahoma Episcopal Diocese.

After matriculating, she enrolled into New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, which is focused on media, performing, and cinematic arts. The school is the home of a technology hub called the Media and Games Network, or MAGNET. Many of their graduates would go on to work on Broadway, and they have notable alumni who’ve received Oscar nominations. After completing her degree, she moved to Los Angeles in pursuit of screenwriting projects.

Screenwriting and Acting

One of Oppenheimer’s first credited works was in the film “Hot Mess”, released in 2010. During the same year, she was given her first acting opportunity in the independent film entitled “The Rock ‘n’ Roll Dreams of Duncan Christopher”, starring Jack Roberts in the titular role – it was premiered at the Method Fest Independent Film Festival. The following year she had another role, in the independent feature entitled “Love Finder” in which she played the character Lexi.

She returned to screenwriting shortly afterwards, working on the screenplay of “The Remains” which hasn’t yet been turned into a film despite gaining some attention. In 2015, she co-wrote one of the episodes of “Fear the Walking Dead” during its first season – the show is a spin-off and companion series to “The Walking Dead”, initially taking place as a prequel to the original show. Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman, it follows a group of survivors of a zombie apocalypse. During the same year, she worked on the film “We Are Your Friends”, which starred Zac Efron alongside Emily Ratajkowski, and on a pilot alongside Reese Witherspoon that was intended for ABC, but never came to fruition. One of her latest projects is the Facebook show entitled “Queen America”, which was released in 2018, and most recently, she created, produced and is writing for “Tell Me Lies”, premiered in 2022.

Husband – Tom Ellis

Tom is a Welsh actor who grew up in Cardiff. At a young age, he was determined to make it into the entertainment industry, attending High Storrs School. After matriculating, he enrolled at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, a well-known performing arts school. Following the completion of his studies, he started to gain fame when he was cast in the BBC sitcom entitled “Miranda” in which he worked alongside Miranda Hart.

The situational comedy is based on Hart’s semi-autobiographical radio comedy show entitled “Miranda Hart’s Joke Shop” which revolves around the titular character who is socially awkward and keeps finding herself in similarly awkward situations. After a few more projects in the UK, he gained his Hollywood breakthrough in the show “Lucifer” which is based on the comic book series of the same name. The show began airing in 2015, running there for three seasons before it was picked up by Netflix and eventually ending in 2021.

Personal Life

Meaghan married Tom Ellis in 2019, but isn’t his first wife, as he was previously married to actress Tamzin Outhwaite who is known for her work in the soap opera “EastEnders”. They have three children from that marriage, to whom Oppenheimer is now stepmother. They were together for four years before deciding to marry.

The couple received a lot of support in the months leading up to the marriage with many of their followers wanting to donate to the couple for the wedding. However, she decided that the fans should instead donate to charity, specifically Planned Parenthood which both of them support.

She loves cats and owns several. She loves to express her opinions on current events, following the political scene of both the UK as well as the US. She spends a lot of her free time with her husband; the two have appeared at red carpet events together. They like to make comedic posts online. They also spend a lot of time with friends and she is very close to her stepchildren. With their marriage being held just recently, she’s been looking back to it a lot, especially the location of their wedding which was held in the desert.
