  • Fame & Fortune Q&A

    Bankrate: Do you feel somewhat financially secure now and you've come into your own?

    Melora Hardin: It's funny, I've never worried about money in my life, even when I wasn't particularly working (laughs). First of all, I've actually worked quite consistently and have been very fortunate to transition from a child actor to a teenage actor to being an adult actor, but in my mind, I guess I've always known I was going to be fine, financially. And I don't have to be the richest person in the world to be happy; I just need to feel I can do the things that I want to do. And I feel that I can. When I'm making more money, I think about doing other things and when I'm making less money, I think about collecting pods (laughs).

  • Lesson learned: Have faith in yourself. Worry doesn't help.
