Pretty brunette Rachel Ticotin, who can hold her own both on television and on the big screen, has taken up the plate several times in very heavily armed roles, portraying various characters from bodyguards to policemen to military corporals. Born and raised in the Bronx, she mastered the art of self-discipline in her formative years, especially through ballet classes, which she began at the age of 8.
The King and I, a stage production performed at the City Center Theatre of NYC, had her first stage appearance at the young age of 10. She made her film debut with a supporting role in The King of the Gypsies in 1978, where she played a gypsy dancer. Rachel gained valuable know-how in productions such as The Wanderers (1979), The Raging Bull (1980), and Dressed to Kill, which was released the same year, and worked behind the camera as a production assistant in off-Broadway shows. She came into the spotlight on the set of the 1981 film Fort Apache, the Bronx – a brutal police film in which she played the female lead. Other notable roles include For Love and Honor (1983) and Prison Stories: Women on the Inside (1991), 2001 Warden of Red Rock (2001), Aftershock: Earthquake in New York (1999), and 1987 Critical Condition (1987).
Rachel was also part of 1992 Where the Day Takes You and Falling Down (1993). Perhaps it would be fair to assume that the best role she ever played was on the set of 1990’s Total Recall – the sci-fi blockbuster by Arnold Schwarzenegger, where she clashed with Sharon Stone in a memorable fistfight scene. Her films still include productions such as Con Air (1997), Thicker than Blood: The Larry McLinden Story (1994), Ohara (1987), and Crime & Punishment (1993). 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. Not surprisingly, she has received some remarkable awards for her efforts in the entertainment industry.
What’s Her Net Worth?
According to sources, Rachel earns a reasonable annual income from her acting career. For example, her estimated net worth has been estimated at a healthy $4 million that she has earned from her acting career. There is no information about the cars and other real estates she has acquired over the years.
Family – Rachel Ticotin Husband and Kids
It is quite common knowledge that Rachel Ticotin has had two marriages and divorce. Her first marriage was to David Caruso, an aspiring actor when she met him on the set of For Love and Honor – a television pilot released in 1983. The details of their courtship and married life are not known, but their conjugal life began in 1984 and they spent six years in their relationship, which was blessed with the birth of their only child, a daughter named Greta, who was born on June 1, 1984. The couple’s marriage ended in divorce in 1989.
It seems that Rachel Ticotin took a ten-year break from married life, but she decided to give the marriage another trial when she met Peter Strauss, a remarkable actor she met on the set of Thicker than Blood: The Larry McLinden Story – a television movie released in 1994. Although they had been dating since 1994, they had to watch a four-year courtship before making the conscious decision to let their relationship culminate in a marriage ceremony that took place in 1998.
It is obvious that Rachel Ticotin has finally found her match in Peter Strauss because their relationship has lasted for 20 years and more are still to come. So far there is no news of an impending divorce or separation that has been heard from them, although they will not yet have children together.
Where Is Rachel Ticotin Now?
Where she is or what she is doing right now is not entirely clear at this time. Her last appearance on screen, however, was in 2010 in Law & Order: Los Angeles, a popular NBC legal drama. In the series, she was cast in the role of Lt. Arleen Gonzales.
