Victoria Leigh Blum Wiki Biography

Victoria Leigh Blum, born on the 15th of October, 1955 and more popularly known under her married surname as Tanya Roberts, is an American model and actress who initially came to prominence through her role in the television series “Charlie’s Angels” in 1980-81.

So how much is Tanya Roberts’ net worth? As of mid-2016, it is reported by authoritative sources to be $10 million, acquired from her years in the showbiz industry, from being a model to an actress.

Born in The Bronx, New York City, Roberts grew up in a family with a modest income. At the age of 15, she quit high school and travelled around the country. She later decided to go back to New York and started building her portfolio in work as a model. She also invested in her acting skills and studied at the Actors Studio under Lee Starsberg and Uta Hagen. Roberts’ career started with her working as a model, and for products icluding Ultra Brite, Clairol, Excedrin and Cool Ray sunglasses. These jobs helped her establish her net worth, and opportunities for acting came.

After multiple modelling gigs in 1975, Roberts finally starred in her first movie “Forced Entry”, which was soon followed by a string of movies like “The Yun-Yum Girls”, “Fingers”, “Racquet”, ‘Tourist Trap” and ‘California Dreaming”. Although she was working non-stop and her wealth was increasing, these roles were relatively small, and she was still unable to make it big in Hollywood.

Roberts’s big break came in 1980, when she was picked out of a handful of those who auditioned for a vacant role in the television show “Charlie’s Angels”. She entered the shows’ fifth season playing the role of Julie Rogers, replacing another angel. Although the show was cancelled after another year, it launched Roberts’ career to new heights and she became a rising star.

More opportunities now came for Roberts. She came back to movies, and starred in “The Beastmaster” in 1982, “Hearts and Armour” in 1983 and a made-for-TV movie “Murder me, Murder You”. She even became a ‘Bond girl’ and appeared in the movie “A View to a Kill” in 1985.

In 1998, after appearing consistently in movies for several years, she became part of the television show “That 70s show”, appearing in over 80 episodes in more than six years. It became her last major project in show business, although she was seen briefly in the TV series’ “Eve” and “Barbershop”, after which she focused on caring for her terminally-ill husband.

In terms of her personal life, Roberts married Barry Roberts in 1974 after a whirlwind romance of just two weeks – the two met in a line at a movie theatre and started dating. Roberts proposed at a subway after only a short time of knowing each other. Barry Roberts passed away in 2006. Tanya has apparently been single since, and now resides in Hollywood Hills.

Victoria Leigh Blum Quotes

  • I think it’s better to come into the limelight really slowly and do a broader range of roles, but I took these glamorous roles and I think that stereotyped me. They sort of think you’re some dumb, glamorous broad, so it’s difficult, and I think that is the reason most Bond Girls don’t go on to have careers after they have done the movie because people just don’t take them seriously and I guess they shouldn’t because it’s so tongue-in-cheek, you know what I mean?
  • [on being cast as a Bond Girl in A View to a Kill (1985)] I sort of felt like every girl who’d ever been a Bond Girl had seen their career go nowhere, so I was a little cautious. I remember I said to my agent, “No one works after they get a Bond movie” and they said to me, “Are you kidding? Glenn Close would do it if she could.” And I thought to myself, “Well, you can have regrets if you wish, but what’s the point?” At the time I didn’t know what I know now, and to be honest, who would turn that role down, really? Nobody would. All you have to think to yourself is, “Could have I been better in the part?” That’s all you can say to yourself because turning the part down would have been ridiculous, you know? I mean nobody would do that, nobody. I was very young and I did what I felt was the right choice to make.
  • I’ve made a lot of good choices and a lot of bad choices and that’s part of life. Whether you’re really successful or moderately successful, I’m sure that to get there you have made some bad decisions and good decisions on some level, but that’s how I see life. You can’t go through life defeated, it’s just trial and error.
  • You need to start somewhere. Jane Fonda began with Barbarella (1968). I’m not at an age where producers will offer me Norma Rae (1979) or Sophie’s Choice (1982). When you’re young and pretty you don’t get On Golden Pond (1981). But if you keep working, good things can happen. Kim Basinger got The Natural (1984) after making a James Bond movie. The same kind of thing could happen to me.
  • Fans make you. I certainly hope that people like me in the work and I appreciate every letter that I get. I’m glad they like me or else I wouldn’t be in the business. But for fans it’s a very different reality than it is for me. They’re going to watch the finished product, which has taken us five months and a lot of hard work . . . I mean, I’ve been choking for the last three days on smoke–it’s not very glamorous. It’s not what it looks like in the movie, I’m on my knees, bruised half the time, it’s action, action, action.
  • [interview in “People” Magazine, 1984] Even if I get thrown out of Hollywood, I’ll come back. It took me 14 years to get where I am. I’m going to hang in there.
