Who is Marc Schauer?
Marc Schauer was born on 5 April 1960, in Telluride, Colorado USA, and is a real estate agent, but probably better known for being the husband of actress Laura Linney, who is four years his senior. She is the recipient of several awards including two Golden Globes and four Primetime Emmy Awards. She has also been nominated for four Tony Awards and three Academy Awards.
The Wealth of Marc Schauer
How rich is Marc Schauer? As of late-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is over $1 million, earned largely through a successful career in real estate. His net worth has also been elevated potentially, thanks to the success of his wife who has an estimated net worth at $15 million. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and RelationshipVery little information is available about Marc’s childhood except for the fact that his family moved to New York when he was young, where he grew-up and was educated, though it is not known where. After matriculating from high school, he didn’t pursue a college education, but instead looked for ways to earn income. He ventured into real estate, slowly rising in the industry, and eventually becoming one of the better known agents in his area.
He met Laura during the Telluride Festival held in Colorado, when he was assigned to help Laura look for events. The two became very close and started a relationship, which culminated in marriage in 2009. Laura had already left her first marriage from nine years prior, which was to actor and playwright David Adkins with the two staying together for five years. In her marriage to Marc, she was walked down the aisle by actor Liam Neeson.
Wife – Laura Linney
Laura began her career in theatre, making her Broadway debut in 1990 and receiving a lot of acclaim for her performances. She made her onscreen debut with the 1992 film “Lorenzo’s Oil”, but it wasn’t until the 2000s that she really found her stride on screen, earning her first Academy Award nomination for “You Can Count On Me”, followed by a Tony Award nomination in a Broadway revival of “The Crucible”. In 2004, she had another Academy Award nomination for “Kinsey”, and another Tony Award nomination for her work in the original production of “Sight Unseen”.
Three years later, she was again nominated for an Academy Award for “The Savages”, and her third Tony Award nomination for the original production of “Time Stands Still”. She also won her first Emmy Award for the film “Wild Iris”, and more wins in the series “Frasier” as well as the miniseries “John Adams”. Some of her most notable projects include the films “Mystic River”, “The Truman Show” and “Love Actually”. She also starred in the TV series “The Big C” which earned her a fourth Emmy award. A few of her most recent work includes “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows”, and the series “Ozark” on Netflix.
There have been no problems or turmoil reported with the couple’s relationship and marriage. Five years after their marriage, she gave birth to a son, a notable event as she was already advanced in age – 50 – when they had the child. During the pregnancy, the couple made it a point not to bring up any news as they didn’t want the attention, and just wanted to focus on having a safe delivery. It was also because of the many concerns doctors had with her having her first pregnancy at a late stage compared to most women.
The birth was successful, without any complications. In recent years, Schauer has mainly remained in the background, focusing on his real estate work while supporting his wife’s endeavors. He mentioned that it doesn’t really bother him that he is married to a very popular celebrity because he loves her and he knows where she comes from. Laura shows no sign of slowing down from her acting career any time soon.
One of the reasons why there is very little information about Marc, his past, and his present endeavors is due to the lack of any online presence. He does not have any accounts associated with the major social media websites such as Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. There are numerous other profiles that share the same name as him, but they are different people, including attorneys, people involved in politics, etc.
His wife also shares a similar sentiment in that she does not have any social media accounts which is unusual for actors in this modern age. Despite that, she has found a lot of success, and many sources argue that the lack of social media presence is not affecting her work at all. If there is something to gain here, it proves that her success is not dependent on her online presence, as she can focus more on her acting endeavors and her family. She does make a lot of public appearances in television talk shows, interviews with publications, and other videos mainly promoting her current or upcoming work.
