Here’s What We Know About Caroline Catz, Her Net Worth, Career Achievements and Family

When fans of British medical comedy-drama Doc Martin think of the TV show that started airing since 2004, it’s usually Caroline Catz and Martin Clunes, an on-screen couple, that spring to mind mostly because of their flawless performance as Louisa Glasson and Dr. Martin respectively. But away from that very role, Caroline Catz has proven to be a shining star when it comes to English film, television, theatre, and radio acting. Here’s everything we know about the actress.

Who Was Caroline Cartz Before Fame?

Before Caroline Cartz earned her glowing reputation in the English entertainment industry, she was just a young girl with many aspirations. However, she has chosen to keep her early life and even her educational history private. A few things known about this aspect of her life are details of her birth including that she was born Caroline Caplan on 19 October 1970. Records also show that she has Polish and Latvian Jewish roots but nothing is known about her parents.

As a grown-up, the actress adopted Catz, a name that was inspired by her contact with a doodle of a cat even though, ironically, she is extremely allergic to cats. This was to avoid being confused with another actress that bears Caplan.

Career Rise and Achievements

Caroline became active in acting since 1992 – when she made her acting debut that year by appearing in the TV movie, The Guilty. Two years later, she nabbed the lead role as Dawn Lomax in All Quiet On The Preston Front which aired on BBC. She solidified her place with regard to international fame with a role as Rosie Fox in The Bill. The show premiered to worldwide success, with critical acclaims from fans and critics. The actress served up a praise-worthy performance when she starred as Detective Inspector Kate Ashurst in Murder in Suburbia, PC Cheryl Hutchins in The Vice and Detective Inspector Helen Morton in DCI Banks. However, her breakthrough role came in 2004 after she began appearing in the TV series, Doc Martin.

After she became a regular on British TV, the actress made her directorial debut in 2014 with a documentary titled A Message to the World…Whatever Happened to Jesse Hector? The documentary which was directed superbly exposed the actress to several other opportunities including narrating BBC’s Television documentary Ebola – The Search for a Cure. The actress’s star power grew larger from there, and now many fans know her as Bex on the BBC One sitcom series titled I Want My Wife and also as the narrator of documentary Britain’s Biggest Warship which centered around aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth.

Caroline Catz

In addition to her repertoire of television credits, Catz also co-starred in Déjà Vu – radio play broadcast by BBC Radio 4 in February 2009. After she scored that role, Catz went on to play a puppet maker in a stage production On Emotion. Her other stage appearances include – Out of Joint/Royal Court Theatre production of Mark Ravenhill’s Shopping and Fucking, Caryl Churchill’s play Top Girls directed by Max Stafford-Clark in 2012.

What We Know About Her Family Life

Caroline Catz is happily married to her long-time boyfriend Michael Higgs. Michael Higgs is also an English actor who fell head over heels in love with her on the set of the TV program The Bill in the 90s. The couple began dating shortly after their encounter and later decided to blend their lives together as husband and wife. They tied the knot in a lavish wedding ceremony in 2007 when they already had kids together.

Sure enough, they have been enjoying each other company – because, to date, there doesn’t seem to be drama with their romantic relationship or any rumor published about the couple going through a divorce. Speaking about her marriage in an interview, Catz noted that marriage to another actor means there is no explanation needed for what she does which is pretty refreshing for anyone in a commitment.

Just like Catz, her husband has scored quite a number of roles. He is a well-known face in popular TV shows such as The Bill and EastEnders. He also appeared in a popular commercial for in 2015.

How Does She Expertly Balance Family Life and Work?

Things seem rosy behind the scenes for beautiful Catz as the notable actress is handling her family and work-life perfectly. She is a mother of two. Her children are son, Sonny (born 2001) and daughter Honour (born 2006).

As a mother, wife, and actress, Catz juggles motherhood, married life and work like a pro. However, it doesn’t stop her from recognizing the fact that it is not such an easy task for everyone. In one interview, she noted that most parents would admit that combining work and parenting is one of the hardest tasks there is.

How Much Caroline Catz Is Actually Worth 

Caroline Catz has worked hard enough to set up a place for herself in the English entertainment scene. Although she struggled to find work, nabbing just minor roles at the early stage of her career, she kept at it and today her star strength has certainly been on the rise. This obviously means well for her bank account. Reports estimate that Caroline Catz is sitting on about $ 1.2 million – an amount that is only imaginable by some of her peers in the industry.
