Lizzy Caplan is an American actress with an estimated net worth of $4 million. She was born on June 30, 1982 in Los Angeles, California. Her mother passed away from an undisclosed illness with Caplan was only 13. Her father was an attorney and her mother a political aide prior to her passing. She grew up with her older brother and sister, the youngest of three children in the Caplan family. She is also someone who has more than a few famous faces in the family, including her famous uncle Howard Bragman the publicist. Growing up she played soccer and loved to focus her time on music and drama, and she loved it so much that she decided to forgo college to pursue her acting career. It was not, at first, something her dad approved of too much, but he supported his daughter nonetheless.
Freaks and Geeks was Lizzy Caplan’s first role in 1999. She became famous from her role in the hit series, but she was not so much a famous name as she was a famous face. People might recognize her from the role, but they were not entirely certain of her name at the time. She still had a way to go before she became even more famous. She later became a music video star for Jason Mraz, she starred in some made for television movies and she eventually went on to take on some small guest appearance type roles in hit primetime television shows throughout the early 2000s. She still was not a famous name, but she was working on it as quickly as possible.
It wasn’t until 2013 when Lizzy Caplan began starring on a hit series called Masters of Sex on Showtime that she became famous. The show is one that has a lot of criticism, but also a lot of fans and a lot of love. She was actually nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role in 2014. Now she made it. She has been on the show since the beginning, and despite the fact that it is one that is met with criticism more often than not, the writing is amazing and her character portrayal is flawless.
Lizzy Caplan is someone who has a very personal personal life, too. She is not someone who shows up on the red carpet unless she is invited for something she has done and is nominated for an award. She was famous for a while for spending six years dating the very famous Matthew Perry, but they ended their relationship in 2012, prior to Caplan’s really big role in her Showtime series. They allegedly remain friends. She is also very close with Busy Phillips, another actress. She is so close to Phillips and Marc Silverstein that she is actually the godmother of their daughter. She is currently working full time and working on her career every day. She will continue to grow her net worth and star in a number of upcoming projects.
