Patrick Wayne- this man was destined to pursue a successful career in Hollywood. Walking into the footprints of his father John Wayne, Patrick might not have enjoyed the stardom that his father did but he has certainly taken the legacy of his father further. Today, let’s learn all about him including his career, personal life, total earnings, and his net worth in 2019.
Born as Patrick John Morrison on 15 July 1939, in Log Angeles, US, Patrick Wayne is an American actor. He is the second son of Hollywood legend John Wayne and his wife Josephine Alicia Saenz. Being a son of such a high profiled person, Patrick Wayne had a privileged childhood. He always enjoyed the privilege of his father’s stardom. Before stepping into glamour world, Patrick completed all his education. He attended a local high school in Los Angles and then, moved to Loyola Marymount University and completed graduation in 1961. One of his brothers also studied here.
Unlike his father, Patrick is not very charming and attractive, yet, he was relatively smart as compared to other Hollywood actors in his youth days. Given the fact, he was a desired boy at that time but he married only twice. His first marriage was with his long-time girlfriend Peggy Hunt in 1965. The couple had 3 children together before getting divorced in 1978. Then, after being in a few short-lived relationships, he married the second time in 1999. This time, he married Misha Anderson who is nearly half of his age.
Being the son of one of the greatest filmmakers of Hollywood, it was not at all difficult for Patrick to hit the first kick. As his father had already built his own empire in the industry, he got an opportunity to appear on the big screen at the tender age of 11. In fact, he even shared the screen with his father in his debut film ‘Rio Grande’. The same year itself, he again came with his father in the film ‘The Quit Man’ and the movie was directed by John Ford. In these two films, he managed to impress John Ford who cast him in his next 4 movies. As a teenager, he worked with him only.
By 1955, he had appeared in 4-5 films and has earned a bit fame as an actor which helped him to make his TV debut with TV show ‘Rookie of the year’. Here again, he worked with his father and his best friend John Ford. After completing his studies, he entirely focused on the acting. This is when the mainstream of success came for him. Though any his film couldn’t gain a record-breaking success at the box office, he constantly appeared on the big screen. Over his entire career, he starred in total 40 movies and numerous TV shows. He shared the screen with his father in total 9 films.

Net worth of Patrick Wayne
Patrick Wayne had a long career, spanning to nearly 5-6 decades. With the fact, you can assume his net worth. And not to forget, he is also the son of one of the most successful stars of Hollywood, so he must have inherited his share from his father’s wealth.

Today, obviously, he hardly has a source of income, so this is what he has accumulated in his career.
