But by the end of it, she retired. How much is Laura Ramsey’s cash flow? She still cashes checks, but how much?

Let’s find out. Ramsey stepped down in 2016. Her last project was Hindsight, a TV series. There, she portrayed Becca.

Career Ups and Downs

Born in Brandon, Wisconsin, Laura graduated from Laconia High School in Rosendale in 2001. She then attended Ripon College in Ripon, Wisconsin. Ramsey spent her educational years in Wisconsin. There, she worked regular jobs before starting an acting career. Fun fact: people in her town describe her as naughty.

Laura was not much into studies. At the age of 19, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her acting career. But she didn’t get an acting job immediately. She waited tables in a restaurant located on Sunset Boulevard.

Before starting an acting career, Laura worked regular jobs. In fact, she got spotted while working in a restaurant on Sunset Boulevard. She got an audition for the next day. And she won the role in The Real Cancun. The documentary revolves around the true exploits of American youths in Mexico. It included students from different universities and showed how they have a good time in Mexico’s resorts.

From there, she continued her acting career in a television series on ABC, The Days. In 2003, she made her feature-movie acting debut in Lords of Dogtown. The movie about skateboarders starred Heath Ledger in one of the titular roles.

In the 2000s, Laura kept a busy schedule. She appeared in a couple of movies and reached her stardom. Things started moving slowly with her appearance in the mystery drama movie Inside Out. Then, she appeared in the horror-comedy Cruel World, and another horror movie, Venom.

In 2006, she got her breakthrough role. Laura portrayed Olivia Lenox in the romantic comedy movie She’s the Man. In the movie, she starred alongside Amanda Bynes and Channing Tatum. In 2006, she also got the lead role in the horror movie The Covenant.

In 2008, Laura made her memorable appearance in the TV drama series Mad Men. From there, she got back to horror movies. Ramsey portrayed Stacy in the horror movie The Ruins. In 2009, she starred alongside Luke Wilson in the comedy-drama movie Middle Men. She also had a minor role in the biopic movie Kill the Irishman.

Before her retirement, she also appeared in Are You Here alongside Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis. Her last project came in 2015. Laura portrayed Becca in ten episodes of the comedy-drama series, Hindsight.

Following her retirement, Laura shifted her focus on her family life. She stays away from the public.

Speaking of her private life, she got her first Hollywood-style relationship in 2009. She dated Brian Geraghty, but the two split up in 2010. After the separation, she started a relationship with designer Greg Chait. The couple has a daughter, Dorothy. They also had a secret engagement, but they still haven’t tied the knot.

Dorothy is the reason why Laura stayed away from the acting world. Many fans speculate why she left the industry. Some believe that she cannot land a decent role. But Ramsey stayed away from Hollywood since 2015 to raise her daughter.

Net worth

As of October 2020, Laura Ramsey’s fortune is more than $2 million. She can definitely afford to stay away from Hollywood for a while. And her husband, Greg Chait, has a successful career in fashion. Critics say that “everything he touches he turns to cashmere”.

In more than a decade in the acting world, Laura managed to earn a decent amount of money. She went from earning a minimum wage and tips for waiting tables to decent checks for her acting credits.

Major sources of income include The Days, Hindsight, She’s the Man, and Lords of Dogtown. She played a major role in all of these projects.
