Alec Guinness net worth: Alec Guinness is an English actor who has a net worth of $100 million dollars. Alec Guinness was born in Paddington, London, England, and began his acting career in the early 30s, appearing in the play, "Libel" at the King's Theatre. The show later moved to the Playhouse, and he was promoted to understudy, which earned him one pound a week. His roles and reputation grew, and he began to appear in higher and higher profile theater projects. He went on to appear in starring roles opposite other British theater greats, including Laurence Olivier and John Gielgud. During the Second World War, he was granted a brief leave of absence from the Royal Navy to appear in the Broadway production of "Flare Path". He went on to a stellar stage career, winning multiple awards, including a Tony Award. He successfully transitioned into film work, and won acclaim for his performances in such films as "Great Expectations", "The Bridge on the River Kwai" (for which he won an Oscar), and "Lawrence of Arabia". He is most widely recognized as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the "Star Wars" trilogy. Sir Alec famously thought Star Wars was "fairy tale rubbish" but he ended up negotiating a killer deal to appear in the films. First he demanded that the studio double his standard paycheck. Second, he negotiated a small percentage of all every Star Wars movie in perpetuity. That meant when the new movies were released, Alec earned a nice little fee for no work at all. To date, Sir Alec's estate has earned an estimated $100 million off Star Wars before taxes. He was knighted in 1959 and passed away in 2000 at the age of 86.
Sir Alec Guinness, CH CBE (2 April 1914 ??? 5 August 2000) was an English actor. After an early career on the stage he was featured in several of the Ealing Comedies, including Kind Hearts and Coronets in which he played eight different characters. However, he was probably best known for his six collaborations with David Lean: Herbert Pocket in Great Expectations (1946), Fagin in Oliver Twist (1948), Col. Nicholson in The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor), Prince Faisal in Lawrence of Arabia (1962), Yevgraf in Doctor Zhivago (1965), and Professor Godbole in A Passage to India (1984). He is also well known for his portrayal of Obi-Wan Kenobi in George Lucas???s original Star Wars trilogy. He was one of the three major British actors, along with John Gielgud and Laurence Olivier, who, right after the Second World War, successfully transitioned from Shakespearean theatre in their home country to Hollywood blockbusters.
Guinness was born at 155 Lauderdale Mansions South, Lauderdale Road, Maida Vale, London as Alec Guinness de Cuffe. His mother's maiden name was Agnes Cuff. She was born 8 December 1890 to Edward Cuff and Mary Ann Benfield. On Guinness's birth certificate, the space for the mother's name shows Agnes de Cuffe. The space for the infant's name (where first names only are given) says Alec Guinness. The column for name and surname of father is blank.
The identity of Guinness's father has never been officially confirmed although it has been speculated that he may have been a member of the Anglo-Irish Guinness family. From 1875, under English law, when the birth of an illegitimate child was registered, the father's name could be entered on the certificate only if he were present and gave his consent. Guinness himself believed that his father was a Scottish banker, Andrew Geddes (1861-1928), who paid for Guinness's private school education. Geddes occasionally visited Guinness and his mother, posing as an unc
