One tough cookie who can hold her own on both television and the big screen, beautiful brunette Rachel Ticotin has stepped up to the plate severally in very strong-armed roles, portraying different characters from bodyguards to cops and even military corporals. Born and raised in the Bronx, she mastered the art of self-discipline right from her formative years, especially with ballet lessons which she started at the age of 8.
The King and I, a stage production which was staged at NYC’s City Center Theatre saw her initial stage appearance at the young age of 10. Her movie debut came with a minor role in the 1978 King of the Gypsies where she played a gypsy dancer. Rachel gained valuable know-how in productions like The Wanderers (1979), the 1980 Raging Bull, as well as Dressed to Kill which came in the same year, working behind the camera as a production assistant in off-Broadway shows. She came to the limelight on the set of the 1981 Fort Apache, the Bronx – a brutal police movie where she played the lead female role. Her other notable roles include For Love and Honor (1983), Prison Stories: Women on the Inside (1991), 2001 Warden of Red Rock, Aftershock: Earthquake in New York (1999), and the 1987 Critical Condition.
Rachel was also part of 1992 Where the Day Takes You and Falling Down (1993). Perhaps it would be right to surmise that the best role she ever played was on the set of the 1990 Total Recall – the Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi blockbuster where she locked fists with Sharon Stone in a memorable fisticuffs scene. Her movie credits still go on to include productions like Con Air (1997), Thicker than Blood: The Larry McLinden Story (1994), Ohara (1987), as well as 1993 Crime & Punishment. Some of her later roles are Something’s Gotta Give (2003), Man on Fire (2004), The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005), 2002 American Family, and, of course, Law & Order: Los Angeles – the NBC legal drama. Unsurprisingly, she has bagged a few notable accolades for her efforts in the entertainment industry.
What’s Her Net Worth?
According to sources, Rachel earns a reasonable annual income from her acting profession. Thus, her estimated net worth has been pegged at a healthy $4 million which she gathered from her career as an actress. There is no information on the automobiles and other properties she has acquired through the years.
Family – Rachel Ticotin Husband and Kids
It’s quite a common knowledge that Rachel Ticotin has a record of two marriages and one divorce. Her first nuptial was with David Caruso who was an upcoming actor when she met him on the set of For Love and Honor – a television pilot which was released in 1983. The details of their courtship and married life are not available but their connubial life took off in 1984. They spent six years in their union which was blessed with the birth of their only child, a daughter named Greta who came into the world on the 1st of June 1984. The couple’s marriage came to an end in a 1989 divorce.
It would appear that Rachel Ticotin took a 10-year break from matrimonial life but she decided to give marriage another trial when she hooked up with Peter Strauss, a notable actor whom she met on the set of Thicker than Blood: The Larry McLinden Story – a television movie which was released in 1994. Although they met way back in 1994, they had to observe a four-year-long courtship before they made the conscious decision to culminate their relationship in a marriage ceremony which was accomplished in 1998.
From what is obvious, Rachel Ticotin finally found her match in Peter Strauss because their union has endured for all of 20 years and still counting. So far, there is no news of an impending divorce or separation that has been heard from them, though they are yet to have kids together.
Where Is Rachel Ticotin Now?
Where she is or what she is presently doing is not very clear at the moment. Notwithstanding, her latest on-screen appearance was in 2010, on the set of Law & Order: Los Angeles which is a popular NBC legal drama. On the show, she was cast in the role of Lt. Arleen Gonzales.
