American actress Kate Walsh has a net worth of $20 million. Walsh is probably best known for playing Dr. Addison Montgomery on the popular TV show “Grey’s Anatomy,” which she did from 2005 to 2012.

When Did Kate Walsh Start Her Profession?
Kate worked at several restaurants in New York before moving to Japan in the 1980s and becoming a model there. She also taught English during this time. She eventually moved back to the U.S. and settled in Chicago, where she worked with the Piven Theatre Workshop.
One of her first roles was in a radio play called “Born Guilty,” which was broadcast on National Public Radio. By the middle of the 1990s, Kate was getting parts on big TV shows.
She started on shows like “Homicide: Life on the Street” and “Law & Order,” but her first significant TV role was on “The Drew Carey Show,” starring Drew Carey. For several scenes of her role, she had to wear a fat suit.
Walsh kept working in TV, getting parts in shows like “The Mind of the Married Man” and “The Norm Show.” She also made guest appearances on shows like “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.”
Walsh got a recurring role as Detective Marley Novak on the show “Karen Sisco” at the beginning of the 2000s. When she was cast as Dr. Addison Montgomery in “Grey’s Anatomy” in 2005, it was a big moment in Kate’s career.
People loved the show so much. As of 2021, it will have been on ABC longer than any other scripted primetime show, though ratings have steadily decreased. It is also still one of the shows that makes the most money from ads.
In 2007, Walsh’s character got a new show called “Private Practice” based on her. This show ran for five years before it was stopped. But Walsh later came back to “Grey’s Anatomy” for a few guest appearances.
Kate has been in shows like “Fargo,” “Full Circle,” and “The Hotwives of Orlando” since 2012. Walsh started to appear in the Netflix show “13 Reasons Why” in the middle to late 2010s. She plays the mother of a child who kills himself in this show.
In the early 2020s, she kept working for Netflix and got a recurring role in the show “The Umbrella Academy.” In another Netflix show called “Emily in Paris,” Walsh was again one of the main characters.
By the end of 2021, Kate’s career came full circle when she said she would be back on “Grey’s Anatomy” as Dr. Montgomery in the 18th season of the show. Walsh has been in a few good movies in addition to her work on TV.
“Normal Life,” which came out in 1995, was her first movie. Then she was in the second part of “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.” She had another significant role in the 2005 movie “Kicking and Screaming” with Will Ferrell.
