Ozark saw a surge in popularity in 2020 after season three landed when the world fell into a global blockade as the coronavirus pandemic spread rapidly. The series was one of Netflix’s top performers earlier in the year. Audiences loved the Byrde family saga and their attempts to stay one step ahead of a Mexican drug cartel. Viewers are excited to see the Ozark cast, including actress Janet McTeer, who played and gave orders to the Navarro Cartel attorney and agent for the Byrde family, Helen Pierce.

Unfortunately, Helen came to a brutal end after mob boss Omar Navarro (played by Felix Solis) decided she would become expendable and ordered her execution.
Previously, Helen had become a major character in Ozark after the lawyer moved to the Ozark while trying to prove her worth and even take over Byrdes Enterprises.
In a tense finale, it looked like Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) might face the punch, instead it was Helen who literally bit the bullet.
Even in season two, Helen was the face of the cartel and a strong villain against the Byrdes.

Given the character’s fame in Ozark, British actress McTeer would have received a significant amount.
Television actors are paid per episode they appear on, and McTeer is credited on IMDb for starring in 17 episodes of Ozark. So this would have added up and added to her salary.
At the time of the casting, she was also a big star, known on stage and screen with two Academy Award nominations for Albert Nobbs and Tumbleweeds.
McTeer had also worked extensively in film and television with a number of awards including a Golden Globe, an Olivier, and a Tony Award.
This means that McTeer could potentially have made millions from her role in Ozark, especially considering she was in 17 episodes.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, McTeer has an estimated £ 3.2 million ($ 4 million) net worth, however it is unclear how accurate that number is.
Some of that would have come from Ozark, but she’s likely accumulated more from her other projects over the years.
Interestingly, stars who appeared on shows from streaming platforms tend to earn more because of the revenue streams available to those services.
Hence, McTeer could have a higher net worth than she was previously with Jessica Jones, who was both a Netflix and Marvel co-production.
Since McTeer finished working on Ozark, he has appeared in the TV movie The President Is Missing, which is in post-production.
Ozark will be returning for a fourth and final outing while the series is in progress.
The final excursion will include 14 episodes that will be split in half.
Seasons 1 through 3 of Ozark are now streamed on Netflix
