Thomas Patrick “Tom” Cavanagh is an actor and director, born on 26th October 1963 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He is known for his starring roles in numerous American TV series, such as “Providence” (1999-2002), “Ed” (2000-2004), “Love Monkey” (2006), “Trust Me” (2009), and “Scrubs” (2001-2010). His other notable and more recent roles include the ones in “The Flash”, “Earth 2” and “Earth-19”.

Have you ever wondered how rich Tom Cavanagh is? According to sources, it has been estimated that Tom’s net worth is over $4 million, as of May 2017, accumulated through a versatile acting career which he started in the late ‘80s. Since he is still active in the entertainment industry, his net worth continues to increase.

Tom was born into a Roman Catholic family of Irish descent. When he was a child, he moved to Winneba, Ghana with his family, where he was raised. Several years later in his teenage years, Cavanagh and his family moved back to Canada but this time they settled in Lennoxville, Quebec the place where Tom started high school. He also attended Seminaire de Sherbrooke where he played basketball for the Barons and studied French. Later, he enrolled at Champlain College at the CEGEP level. His interest in music and theatre developed while attending Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario which he finished with a degree in English, biology and education.

At the beginning of his career, Tom appeared in Canadian TV dramas such as “Jake and the Kid”, and commercials for “Labatt Blue” Light beer and “CIBC”. However, in 1989 his first stage appearance arrived as he was cast in the Broadway revival of “Shenandoah”. Other roles soon followed, including productions of “Cabaret”, “A Chorus Line”, “Grease”, “Brighton Beach Memoirs” and several others. When it comes to television, his first notable role came in 1999 when he appeared as Dog Boy in NBC’s “Providence”, which secured him popularity and the title character in NBC’s program “Ed”. For this role, Tom was nominated for a Golden Globe and received a TV Guide Award. In 2002, Cavanagh made a guest appearance in the TV sitcom “Scrubs”, in which he was cast as the lead character’s brother due to his resemblance to actor Zach Braff. After this, Tom made several more appearances in the show’s episodes, making his last one in the eighth season finale. His net worth was rising steadily.

Tom filmed a comedy pilot – “My Ex-Life” – for CBS in 2006, with actress Cynthia Watros as his partner. Two years later he appeared in the TV film “The Capture of the Green River Killer” and the short-lived ABC series “Eli Stone”. He also co-starred with Eric McCormack in the TV drama “Trust Me”(2009), and hosted “Stories from the Vaults” on the Smithsonian Network for more than a year. Some of his other television ventures include roles in “A Killer Among Us”(2012), “The Flash”(2014-) and “Earth 2”.

Although primarily known for his television roles, Tom has also built a notable film career, and some of his roles include those in the 2002 film “Bang Bang You’re Dead”, “Alchemy”(2005), “Gray Matters”(2006), “Breakfast with Scot”(2007) and “Yogi Bear”(2010).

When it comes to his private life, Tom has been married to photo editor Maureen Grise since July 2004, and the couple has four children. Cavanagh is the founder of the “Cavanagh Classic” annual celebrity basketball tournament, which is organized to raise money and awareness for combating malaria by sending mosquito nets to families who need them.

Tom Cavanagh Quotes

  • It’s nice to have people interested about a show that you’re involved in. It’s what actors want.
  • For me, if its television, if it’s theater, if it’s film, and it’s good, I don’t make much of distinction between the 3. I think there’s only so many great stories out there. If you get the chance to be a part of one, it doesn’t matter what it is.
  • A woman who’s light on her feet is always going to make the guy on her arm look better.
  • Any movie that gets made and ends up in a position where people are coming to talk about it, it’s not a small thing.
  • I think most people who were involved with television will tell you, if given a season or given a 13-episode order and getting those episodes on the air, and if viewers don’t come, I think most people will tell you they’d walk away. They feel they were given a fair shake, and if viewers didn’t come, they didn’t come.
  • I’ve known Greg Berlanti from way back. I’ve done two shows with him, and both times, he was like, ‘I’ve got something good for you,’ and they did not disappoint.
