The cast of “Stranger Things” just got a raise, but who’s earning the most
- It looks like the main cast of Netflix’s “Stranger Things” are getting a pay raise in the show’s third season.
- The two adult protagonists, played by Winona Ryder and David Harbor, are expected to earn between $ 300,000 and $ 350,000 per episode.
- Child stars would earn between $ 150,000 and $ 250,000 per episode.
- Actress Millie Bobby Brown has reportedly negotiated a separate salary that will fall between the salaries of her adult and child co-stars.
The cast of “Stranger Things” are about to see their finances shaken.
Actors’ salaries are at different levels determined by star power and acting experience, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Level “A” is Winona Ryder (Joyce) and David Harbor (Jim Hopper); the “B” level are children -Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) and Noah Schnapp (Will); the “C” level is Natalia Dyer (Nancy), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan) and Joe Keery (Steve).
But what level is the escape star Millie Bobby Brown in? Turns out she’s in a league of their own, somewhere between Level “A” and Level “B”, doing more than the other kids on set, but not as much as the more experienced adult actors, according to. The Hollywood Reporter. She is said to have negotiated her salary separately from the other child actors.
Habour and Ryder are now expected to earn between $ 300,000 and $ 350,000 per episode. And the star children of “Stranger things” also get a good deal, which would have been increased up to $ 150,000 – $ 250,000 per episode.
Either way, any regulars on the show will do just fine – all of their pay raises are roughly 12 times what they earned before renegotiating their deals.
Salary negotiations come just weeks after a wage gap leaked on another Netflix show – “The Crown.” The producers of “The Crown” said Matt Smith, who plays Prince Phillip, does more than Claire Foy, who portrayed Queen Elizabeth II in the first two seasons. While it’s unclear how much more Smith did than Foy, the producers have since apologized to them and promised to pay the next queen more. (And in real life, Queen Elizabeth II does much more than her husband, Prince Philip.)
