We don’t know exactly how much money Melissa Sue Anderson has. Some people say she had about $1.5 million in late 2018. She earned this money from her successful acting career in movies and TV shows. It’s likely that she will keep working and making more money in the future.
Melissa Sue Anderson is a lady who grew up in California. She has an older sister, and her parents split up when she was 13. After that, she mostly lived with her mom, who was Catholic.
When Melissa was in dancing class, her teacher thought she should try acting. She started by doing commercials for companies like Mattel and Sears. Then, she got offers to be on TV. She was on shows like “Bewitched,” “The Brady Bunch,” and “Shaft.”
But the biggest thing for Melissa was when she got a part in a show called “Little House on the Prairie.” She worked on this show for eight years. It was about a family on a farm in the 1870s and 1880s.
After finishing “Little House on the Prairie,” Melissa Sue went on to do other things. She got a nomination for a scary movie called “Happy Birthday to Me” in the year after she left the show.
She also acted in movies and TV shows like “The Equalizer,” “Murder, She Wrote,” and “CHiPs.” She even tried her hand at helping make TV shows, being a part of making one called “Where Pigeons Go to Die,” which was the last project by Michael Landon.
In 1998, she was honored and put into the Western Performers Hall of Fame. The next year, she was in a TV show called “Partners,” but it didn’t do very well.
As she got older, Melissa Sue did less acting. One of her last TV roles was in a miniseries called “10.5 Apocalypse” in 2006, where she played the First Lady.
She also did some small movie roles and played Stosh’s mom in a show called “Veronica Mars” in 2014, even though she didn’t get credit for it. Melissa wrote a book called “The Way I See It: A Look Back at My Life on Little House” where she shared stories about her time as a child star and talked about the people she worked with.
Her family moved to Montreal in 2002 and later became Canadian citizens. She decided to stop acting and focus on taking care of her family.
In an interview, she talked about how one of the hardest parts of her job was when her character on “Little House on the Prairie” went blind in the fourth season.
