As of December 2021, the Scottish hunk is estimated to have a net worth of about 8 million dollars.
In 2019, He received an Honorary Doctorate of Drama from his alma mater, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Richard Madden is the poster boy for a self-made man in this industry. With extreme zeal and dedication for theatre, his pursuit of passion has led him down a very successful path in the industry. He received critical acclaim in 2018 for his role as a police officer in the thriller series Bodyguard, for which he won a Golden Globe Award. Madden was named one of Time’s 100 most influential people in the world the following year, in addition to playing music manager John Reid in the biopic Rocketman and a soldier in the epic war film 1917.
Richard Madden, born and reared in Elderslie, near Glasgow, was cast in his first role at the age of 11 and made his cinematic acting debut in 2000.

From 2011 to 2013, Richard Madden starred as Robb Stark in HBO’s fantasy drama series Game of Thrones, based on George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels. His work as Stark catapulted him to fame. Before his casting, he admitted to being broke and debated moving back in with his parents.
In the 2018 BBC thriller series Bodyguard, Richard Madden played Sergeant David Budd, a war veteran and police officer suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). To frame a complex and intricate representation of the disorder, he spoke with members of the armed forces who had experienced PTSD. These two performances have been said to put his acting career on a pedestal, making them inarguably his best roles! In the same year, he received the GQ Men of the Year Awards for Hugo Boss Most Stylish Man.
Madden expressed pride in coming from a working-class family in an interview with British Vogue and said that inequality in education and the lack of creative opportunities for working-class children in schools sparked his social conscience. He currently split his time between London and Los Angeles in May 2019.
- In a 2015 interview with Flaunt magazine, Richard said that if he weren’t acting, he’d probably be a “shy, fat kid living in Scotland with no girlfriend.” Though it may appear that he was joking, he explained that he was timid as a child and turned to theatre as a way to cope.
- Despite the fact that Game of Thrones made Madden a household name, he didn’t make much money as the King of the North. “People think I’m [wealthy] because of Game of Thrones, but I was 22 when I signed up,” Madden told The Sunday Times.
- He spoiled the ending of his character as Robb Stark for himself by googling it. Even before he had the chance to pick up the book and read it, people talked to him about it. Unlike most actors, he didn’t read up on the character he was set to portray.
- He loves to keep his personal life on the down-low and only wants to be in the limelight for the roles he plays!
Richard enjoys walking and escaping into the countryside, particularly in the Scottish Highlands, so he may find time to visit his Grove and enjoy the habitat it provides for native wildlife. With his net worth of about 8 million dollars, he makes it a point to advocate for the importance of a sustainable planet. Citadel, an Amazon Studios series created by Anthony and Joe Russo, will feature him.
