Well-known American screenwriter, director, and actor Taylor Sheridan began his career in the mid-90s, with a modest role in the action crime series ‘Walker, Texas Ranger.’ Gradually, his presence expanded across television screens, gracing shows like ‘Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman,’ ‘Party of Five,’ and ‘NYPD Blue.’ Yet, it was his recurring roles on ‘Veronica Mars’ and ‘Sons of Anarchy’ that gave him bigger recognition.
As the mid-00s transitioned into the late, Sheridan embarked on a transformative path. He ventured into screenwriting, marking his first notable achievement with the film ‘Sicario,’ directed by Denis Villeneuve. This milestone was merely a prelude to Sheridan’s subsequent triumph, the critically acclaimed ‘Hell or High Water,’ which garnered nominations for BAFTA, Golden Globe, and Academy Award nominations.
In 2011, Sheridan took on his first directorial role with the horror movie ‘Vile.’ He followed this with another directing endeavor, ‘Wind River,’ his second directorial work and third as a screenwriter. Additionally, he directed the film ‘Those Who Wish Me Dead’ in 2011.
Taylor’s creative ambitions weren’t limited to the silver screen alone. In 2018, he co-created the successful series ‘Yellowstone,’ honoring television screens with captivating drama centered around the Dutton family and their vast Montana ranch. Brimming with conflicts and complexities, this venture solidified Sheridan’s position as an influential force in the industry. Not content with just one hit, he introduced the prequel ‘1883’ and expanded the universe with the sequel ‘1932’ and the spinoff ‘6666.’
As of 2023, the actor has a net worth of $70 million. Sheridan’s substantial earnings come from his roles as an actor, primarily as a screenwriter, director, and producer. Reports vary on his earnings from ‘Yellowstone,’ with some sources suggesting he makes $1.3 million per episode, while others claim it’s $250,000. Nevertheless, his contribution to the successful Western drama series ensures he takes home a remarkable paycheck.
Beyond his artistic endeavors, Sheridan’s financial acumen has played a significant role in shaping his net worth. His properties, Bosque Ranch and 6666 Ranch, reflect his keen business sense. Bosque Ranch, nestled in Weatherford, Texas, is a state-of-the-art equine facility, serving as a versatile hub for various events and gatherings. The ranch, a manifestation of Sheridan’s entrepreneurial spirit, hosts film shoots, music festivals, and even his hit show ‘Yellowstone.’
Reports indicate that Sheridan charges $50,000 weekly for his productions to film at his ranches, underlining the value of his ventures. His association with the historic 6666 Ranch, acquired in collaboration with a group of investors, further amplifies his business portfolio. This ranch, founded in 1870, boasts an expansive 266,000 acres across four counties, housing top-tier Angus cattle and world-class Quarter horses.
