Chad O’Neal’s biographical book, The Making of a Champion, provides a detailed outline of his early life, from his childhood in Niagara Falls, Canada, where he spent many hours playing with waterfalls and studying aquatic mammals. From there, he went on to study acting at the University of Toronto, where he was involved in drama department as a student. Following this, he worked on several stage productions in New York City, before landing a role on the television show Family Ties opposite actress Susan Sarandon, and from there, became one of the most recognizable faces in television. Chad is said to have grown close to Sarandon due to his accent.
Although most of the information in this biographical book is about his life and professional career, it does give insight into how he and his brother, Bruce, dealt with their mother’s death. In the book, Chad tells of how Bruce would help his mother with the finances after their mother died, and Bruce would then take care of Chad, who was then too young to leave his father’s side. Chad then became depressed due to his mother’s death, and was contemplating suicide by hanging himself. However, Bruce got him to talk to a psychiatrist, and they were able to come up with a plan to get Chad back on track, and make him feel better. Overall, Bruce had been working hard to earn money to help his family, and was deeply grateful for the financial support his brother gave him, which led him to believe that he deserved no less from his family as he had given to them.
Today, Chad is an actor most well-known for playing an elderly Chinese warlord in the movies called Kung Fu Panda and Kill Bill, and he is only in his late thirties, but he is probably much older than that, judging by his looks and physique in these films. Indeed, many people believe that he might be close to 40 now, as he looks much older. However, one thing that does remain true is that Chad has always worked very hard to earn his acting portfolio, and that he is still just as dedicated as ever, and he is not slowing down anytime soon. He is currently appearing in several films, and his resume is far from being complete, with some of his best roles being in the TV show Smallville, and also his turn as a rapper in the group Blank Face. He is not, however, a household name like his Kung Fu Panda or Kill Bill co-stars, and he is not yet a million dollaraire like his Kung Fu Panda co-star Jackie Chan.
Chad is definitely earning his stars, and it is quite likely that his net worth will continue to rise with it. Many people are surprised to learn that he is not rich, as it is often assumed. He has, however, been able to establish himself in the industry, and there is no sign of his star dwindling any time soon. Indeed, the future for Chad seems rather bright indeed. As long as he continues to work hard, and does not burn out, he has every chance of achieving the success that he desires.
