GUTHRIE, TEXAS: Many people refer to Taylor Sheridan as a failed actor who later became a brilliant writer and director. The star is a real-life cowboy raised in Cranfills Gap, Texas, on a ranch. His life has revolved around horses, and he has loved the country's way of living since he was a young boy. The 52-year-old is living proof that it is possible to transform regular life into stardom, have throngs of followers, and become the king of cinema.
Sheridan has established a solid reputation in the realm of entertainment all by himself. He is the director, writer, producer, star, and co-creator of the smash television series 'Yellowstone', an American neo-Western drama that is a complete hit. The series' enormous popularity just grew more and more with each new season and it has been nominated for the 80th Golden Globes 2023 which will take place on Wednesday, January 11, 2023.
What is Taylor Sheridan's net worth?
American playwright, director, and actor Taylor Sheridan has a $15 net worth, as per a Celebrity Net Worth report. 'Sons of Anarchy' and 'Veronica Mars' were the television shows where Taylor Sheridan initially rose to fame. He later gained stardom as a writer and director of movies, including Oscar-nominated 'Sicario', 'Hell Or High Water' and 'Without Remorse' as well as 'Vile', 'Wind River', and 'Those Who Wish Me Dead'. Sheridan co-created the television series 'Yellowstone', its prequel '1883' as well as the crime serial 'Mayor of Kingstown'.
According to Fort Worth Magazine, Sheridan was raised in the tiny community of Cranfills Gap, which is southwest of Dallas and has fewer than 300 residents. His family had a ranch before his parents got divorced and his mother sold it and moved to Wyoming. He developed a fascination for horses while spending his summers and weekends horseback riding on the ranch in Cranfills Gap.
Although he purportedly wanted to become the sheriff of his hometown, he was a theatrical student at Texas State University in the 1990s before dropping out and relocating to Austin. His acting career drove him first to New York and subsequently to Los Angeles, where he struggled to make a living. He wasn't generating much money at the time, so he briefly lived in a vehicle and also set up camp on a reserve where some of his pals lived north of Los Angeles. "I was really broke but made the choice not to quit and go home," Sheridan stated, as cited by Daily Mail. The Australian Financial Review reports that he is currently filming television projects worth more than $1 billion.
Sheridan spends his time managing both horses and cattle on several of the Texas ranches he owns, including Four Sixes Ranch, Bosque Ranch, and a third in Jacksboro. Some of these have neem used as the locations for 'Yellowstone' and '1883', which star Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and Sam Elliot. "As far as my horses go, I supply most of the horses to Yellowstone, my TV show. And then I have horses that I show and breed. Right now, I’ve got probably as many horses as I have cattle. And I have too many horses," Sheridan told Cowboys & Indians in 2020.
According to the Fort Worth Report, the 52-year-old led a group of investors who purchased $350 million worth of Four Sixes Ranch in January 2022. It is almost twice the size of Chicago at over 266,255 acres. "I would pinch myself if I wasn’t keenly aware of the tremendous amount of responsibility that I just took on. It’s 150 years of legacy building at Four Sixes," Sheridan told the outlet in November.
