Who is Andrew Frankel?
Andrew Frankel was born on 20 August 1974, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA, and is a businessman as well as a stockbroker, but probably better known for being the husband of actress Bridget Moynahan. His wife came to fame for her work in the television series “Blue Bloods”, though she has also appeared in various high profile films during her career.
The Riches of Andrew Frankel
As of early-2020, Andrew Frankel’s net worth is estimated to be over $70 million, earned through a successful career in the stock market, as he’s an important part of one of the oldest stock brokerages in the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
His successful wife has a net worth estimated to be over $25 million.
Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings
At a young age, Andrew became very aware of the world of business and the stock market, mostly thanks to his father who spent most of his time as a stockbroker. His father founded Stuart Frankel & Co, a company that his son would also later become involved with. His father had success through numerous investments, and wanted Andrew to follow a similar path.
He attended the University of Pennsylvania where he studied for a degree in Economics.
The university is one of the oldest in the US, being one of the original nine colonial colleges founded even before the US Declaration of Independence. It has numerous high profile alumni, including US President, Donald Trump. During this time, he wanted to explore more about his other interests instead of heading straight to his father’s business, and became interested in animation, partnering with his cousin for the film adaptation of “Alien Space Avenger”.
Path Towards Stocks
Frankel was very interested in the entertainment industry, especially behind the scenes in graphic design and animation.
Following his graduation, he first worked for the advertising agency Demain Vickers as an assistant, then after a short stint there, he moved to UTV13 News Digest where he began working as a writer, editor, camera operator, and newscaster. While he enjoyed the work, he wanted to do something that lined up more with his previous collaboration with his cousin.
He eventually got a job with Hasbro Toy Group, and stayed there briefly before making his way deeper into the entertainment industry as a member of the animating team of several popular films. He worked on projects such as “Jurassic Park”, “Transformers’, and “GI Joe”, also venturing into acting, appearing in “Godzilla”.
However, he later realized that he wasn’t on track to make it big, so he returned to his father, becoming a part of the company’s research team, and corporate relations. He flourished within Stuart Frankel thanks to the direction of his father, and also became a capable investor.
Wife – Bridget Moynahan
Bridget grew up in New York – her parents are of Irish American descent. Her father worked as a scientist while her mother was a school teacher, though she had already retired. Bridget grew up alongside two brothers, and their family later settled in Longmeadow, Massachusetts where she would attend high school.
At school she showed a lot of interest in athletics, and became the captain of Longmeadow High School’s lacrosse and soccer teams.
After matriculating from high school, she became interested in modeling, despite having been labeled a tomboy in school. She joined her friend in one audition and was successful, becoming a part of several advertisements within catalogs in Springfield, Massachusetts. At the time, she was already continuing her education at the University of Massachusetts – Amherst, but left to take advantage of opportunities to work in the New York fashion industry.
She started gaining features in popular magazines such as “Glamour”, “Elle”, and “Vogue”, however, she knew that this wasn’t going to be a job that would last forever, so she started developing her skills in acting. Some of her earliest work was in shampoo and soap commercials, then made her television show debut in a recurring role in “Sex and the City”.
The Success of Bridget Moynahan
Moynahan eventually became known for her work in the television series “Blue Bloods”, in which she plays the role of Assistant District Attorney Erin Reagan. She has been with the show since the start, and it’s been running for 10 seasons with no sign of stopping any time soon.
It follows the story of a family living in New York City, with most of its members involved in law enforcement. Before her work in the show, she was the star of the series “Six Degrees”, but which was short-lived due to low ratings
While “Blue Bloods” has been her main focus on television, she’s done a lot of film work over the years. One of her latest projects is the “John Wick” franchise which began in 2014 starring Keanu Reeves. It follows the story of the titular character, a retired assassin who is forced back to work and his life of killing – the film franchise has been called some of Reeves’ best work. Other projects she’s been a part of include “The Sum of All Fears”, “I, Robot”, and “The Journey Home”.
Before his marriage to the actress, Andrew had a long term relationship which produced three children. He has not shared a lot of details of this relationship publically, except that the children get along well with their stepmother. Bridget also has a significant romantic history, being in relationships with names such as Scott Rosenberg, Tom Brady, and McG. She has a son from her relationship with Tom Brady.
The two met sometime in the early-2010s and married in 2015 in a wedding ceremony held in The Hamptons. Andrew is very conscious when it comes to fitness and keeping his body in good shape. He goes to the gym regularly and also controls his eating habits.
