Megan Follows Net Worth: Megan Follows is a Canadian performer who has a net worth of $2 million. Megan Follows is best known to international audiences for her portrayal of Anne Shirley in the acclaimed 1985 Canadian television miniseries Anne of Green Gables and its two sequels. Since both her parents were actors, Follows started playing on TV as a toddler. Having starred in several Canadian TV shows, she made her first big screen debut in Stephen King’s adventure “Silver Bullet” in 1985. The exact same year, she gave an unbelievable career-making performance as Montgomery’s feisty redheaded orphan in the acclaimed miniseries Anne of Green Gables, which was followed with a subsequent turn in the 1987 sequel Anne of Avonlea. Both these appearances attracted her Gemini awards and brought her an international name. Leaving her Anne character behind, Follows continued to perform in plays, movies and shows through the 1980s and early ’90s. Flexible performer as she’s proven to be, Follows made a successful turn in the ghastly Canadian drama Termini Station (1991) and lent her voice in the animated feature The Nutcracker Prince (1990). The rest of the 1990s, she was largely committed to starting a family with photographer Christopher Porter, sometimes reaching the screen in Canadian TV movies. In 1997, she handled her devotees using a feature film appearance in the Canadian comedy Reluctant Angel. The beginning of the new century saw her reprising her most famous role (as a now totally adult, aspiring writer in New York) in Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story (2000). Since, she has been more present on the little rather than on the big screen. After her marriage ended in divorce in 1996, Megan and her children have been dividing their time between homes in La and Toronto.

Quotes

#Quote
1[remembering her "Anne Of Green Gables" co-star and friend Jonathan Crombie] Truly I just remember at times just laughing so hard that you'd just be crying. He was so playful and silly and as I said really bright, so his humor was always informed with that, which made him even funnier. He had that beautiful face. He was a lot of fun, he was very open so you just felt he was someone who really wanted to play and it really was a new experience for him. We were all just in it to do the best that we could and we had a lot of fun.
2[on the title role in 'Anne of Green Gables'] It was not an easy character. She's iconic, so people think they know what she is, but she was multifaceted. She was not the appendage of a male character; she was number one. She had a lot of character defects that were fantastic to play. She had an uncontrollable temper; she was a compulsive talker; she had a rich fantasy life - all of which were products of the fact she was an orphan and raised in undesirable circumstances. And it is her intellect, her wit which turns that around and turns the community around. I think that is why that is why that story has had lasting power.
3I do experience more scrutiny because of [Anne of Green Gables], but I have come to the conclusion, for my own sanity, that I can only choose things according to my own barometer of what I'm trying to achieve or how I'm stretching and reaching. That's all I really have in my control. - MF, 2005 interview
4You see the allure of theatre. You see the jealousy. You see the frustration. All of it. My parents lived, breathed, ate and slept theatre. Emotions were right on the surface. Growing up, the unreal had as much importance as the real. - MF, 2005 interview
