The police naval drama “NCIS” featured several successful franchises, but none of them achieved the impact of “NCIS: Los Angeles“. There, the actress Linda Hunt brought to life the iconic Hetty Lange who became one of fiction’s most beloved characters. Linda Hunt as Henrietta “Hetty” Lange, NCIS Supervisory Special Agent and Operations Manager of the Office Of Special Projects, and while Callen is the one in charge, everyone respects dear Hetty. Of course, her character’s popularity has also enriched the actress’ bank account, and she receives a shocking sum for each episode.

Linda Hunt has been a cast member of “NCIS: Los Angeles” since 2009.

The specialized portal Celebrity Net Worth, surveying the fortunes of Hollywood stars, recently revealed that Hunt receives an incredible sum of $80,000 for each appearance in Shane Brennan’s production.

Hunt is 76 years old, originally from New Jersey and has lived with her partner, Karen Kline, since 1987.

Of course, the enviable salary from “NCIS: Los Angeles” isn’t Hetty’s interpreter’s only source of income. The actress is a well-known voice actor who has appeared in several Disney productions, most notably as the voice of Willow in the movie “Pocahontas.” Linda was also responsible for dubbing the award-winning documentary “Auschwitz,” which aired as a television miniseries. Her most recent voice acting appearance was in “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

Although Hetty is an engaging star with a diverse profile, it was her role on “NCIS: Los Angeles” that earned Hunt the unconditional love of the larger audience, and those in charge of the fiction rewarded her connection to the public with a handsome monthly salary.

The Future of Hunt in “NCIS: Los Angeles”

Over the past few years, many fans of “NCIS: Los Angeles” have worried that Linda Hunt might soon give up the role of Hetty. It all started with an interview with Lee Cowan in 2013, in which the actress said she was longing for the day when she could retire.

Hunt won an Oscar for his role in the 1982 film “The Year of Living Dangerously”.

“I’m looking forward to the day when I won’t have to work. That’s close, I believe “Hunt said, triggering a series of doubts among Brennan’s audience.
