Biography – A Short Wiki

Sondra Locke net worth and salary: Sondra Locke was an American actress, producer and director who had a net worth of $20 million at the time of her death in 2018. Sondra Locke made her acting debut in the 1968 film, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, for which she earned an Academy award nomination plus two Golden Globe award nominations for best actress and most promising newcomer. Locke went on to appear in numerous independent films and made television guest appearances before starring in a string of blockbusters alongside her partner of 14 years Clint Eastwood. The 1976 film, The Outlaw Josey Wales, was the beginning of the Locke/Eastwood working relationship. The pair went on to star in notable films including Dirty Harry and Sudden Impact. In the mid-eighties, Locke switched to directing, making her debut with the 1986 comedy, Ratboy which was a big hit in France. She gained respect from film critics with the 1990 thriller, Impulse. Although it impressed the critics, it failed to make an impact at the box office. She directed and appeared in a few independent productions. In 1997 she published an autobiography, The Good, the Bad and the Very Ugly, before quitting the film industry in 1999. Tragically, Sondra Locke died on November 3, 2018 at the age of 74 from cardiac arrest related to her recurring bone and breast cancer.


In 1967, Sondra Locke was actively working in the theatre when her life changed overnight. She got selected to play Mick Kelly in “The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter,” a film that went on to woo critics and audiences alike through a country-wide talent hunt. The unprecedented success of the film not only catapulted Sondra to international fame and recognition but also made her a sought after actress in Hollywood. She went on to be a part of several films, like “Cover Me Babe,” “Willard,” and “The Second Coming of Suzanne.”

Personal Life

Sondra Locke has been largely unlucky in love. When her marriage to Gordon Leigh Anderson, a supposedly gay sculptor, didn’t work out, she began a relationship with fellow actor, Clint Eastwood. However, the 14 years-long live in the relationship came to a rather ugly end when Sondra filed a cheating case against Clint. Allegedly, Clint had cheated her, both personally and professionally, ensnaring her in a fraud working deal with Warner Bros.

“I’m not going to deny that knowing someone in high places can sometimes get the job done. That’s the name of the game. A son or daughter of someone famous will get a break. But once they’re in there, they’re on their own.”
