The series that mainly brought Eve to the limelight is Nurse Jackie, in which she appeared as Dr. Eleanor O’Hara. That was the turning point of her career, and with the immense fame she must have earned considerably.

The actress’s co-star Edie Falco, earned $175,000 per episode from Nurse Jackie. So we can assume that Eve Best’s salary must have been a notable amount.

Apart from acting, Eve worked as a director in the 2014 film Macbeth. Hence seeing her earnings, Eve Best’s net worth of $3 million seems plausible.

Hugh Grant is another British actor with massive earnings.

Is Eve Best Married?

The English actress has successfully made a good name for herself and has been able to create a huge fanbase worldwide. However, even after being in the limelight for a long time, Best is a secretive person.

It is quite impressive that the actress has not let out any information about her personal life in the media. Best does not have any official social media accounts to her name, which has made it even more challenging to learn about Eve Best’s husband.

The Nurse Jackie star has not revealed much about her past relationships as well. So could it be she is dating anyone at the moment?

Nevertheless, let’s hope Eve opens up about her personal life more in the media, and we can learn about her beau. Similarly, coming from an artistic family, her parents must be incredibly proud of her achievements.

As Eve is still active in her acting career, she might earn more in the coming days. Hence, her fortune might increase eventually.

We hope the actress becomes more successful at her work.
