Who is Cirdan Heughan?
Cirdan Heughan was born in Galloway City, Scotland, date unknown, and is only known for being the brother of Scottish actor Sam Heughan, who received acclaim for his role in the series “Outlander”. While Cirdan has made a few public appearances alongside his brother, very little information is known about him.
The Net Worth of Cirdan Heughan
How rich is Cirdan Heughan? As of early-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is at $400,000, earned through success in his various endeavors. His wealth has possibly been elevated thanks to the success of his family, particularly his brother who has a net worth estimated at $5 million. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Cirdan’s parents were originally from the 1960s to 1970s community called Gandalf’s Garden which originated as a part of the London hippie underground movement. This group in particular was heavily inspired by the works of author J.R.R. Tolkien, and began in the shop called Gandalf’s Garden. The group advocated psychedelia and meditation instead of the use of hard drugs.
Eventually, the popularity of Gandalf’s Garden as a place of spiritual meeting gained worldwide recognition, and shops called Seed Centers were spread throughout the UK, and Cirdan’s parents would become involved with the Edinburgh group in Scotland. The group often held weekly meetings with discussion and meditation, and the popularity of the group also saw the creation of a magazine of the same name, which ran for six issues and became a notable inclusion of the underground press. The group was a reflection of how strong the influence of Tolkien was around the world, and was eventually credited by “Lord of the Rings” film actors.
The Life of Cirdan
The name Cirdan comes from a character from “The Lord of the Rings” written by Tolkien; he was an elf who was the Lord of the Falathrim during the First Age, and regarded as one of the elves who had the most foresight and was the wisest. During the Second Age, he became the oldest known elf in Middle-Earth. He remained until the Third Age and was awarded one of the Three Rings which he later surrendered to Gandalf. He was one of the last elves in Middle-Earth departed from the continent during the fourth age to sail west.
Cirdan, the brother of Sam was born to British parents, but when the brothers were young, their father left home, and they were left to be raised by their mother who struggled through much of their childhood. She took on several odd jobs to make ends meet, and very little is known about Cirdan’s life during this period including his education. Eventually, he gained popularity thanks to his brother Sam, who would start to make waves in Hollywood. As his brother caught attention, he also gained some of the fame thanks to getting featured by his brother on social media as well as their public appearances.
Brother – Sam Heughan
Sam found critical acclaim for his role in the series “Outlander”, in which he played the character Jamie Fraser. The television series is based on the time travel book series of the same name, starring him alongside Caitriona Balfe. In the show, a married World War II nurse from 1945 finds herself transported back to 1743 Scotland where he meets a Highland warrior, becoming involved in the Jacobite risings. The show has aired for four seasons, each being an adaptation of the novels. He has been nominated four times for Saturn Awards for his role there. He also earned a nomination for a Critics Choice Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series.
Aside from “Outlander”, he earned critical acclaim in the play entitled “Outlying Islands”, for which he was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award for Most Promising Performer. One of his most recent projects is the film “The Spy Who Dumped Me”, starring alongside Mila Kunis, Justin Theroux and Kate McKinnon. The film received mixed reviews though performances of the actors received praise, and the film grossed $75 million internationally.

For his personal life, it is known that Cirdan is married to Victoria; they have been together for a and have a child though details about their relationship, marriage, and family have never been disclosed to the public. It is known that in 2008, he was diagnosed with testicular cancer, and had to undergo treatment to get rid of the disease. Since then, the family is very active when it comes to supporting charities that fight against cancer, and regularly raise funds and donate annually to cancer patients.
In 2015, he along with his brother Sam reunited with their father who was staying on an island in Canada, who never married after their parents separated and chose to stay in Canada. According to reports, they met with him while he was suffering from leukemia, spent some time with him and were able to reconnect before he passed away.
One of the reasons why there is very limited information about Cirdan is due to the lack of any social media presence. He does not have accounts on any of the major social media websites; he’s only made a few appearances in photos alongside his brother.
