Six years after its premiere, ‘Stranger Things’ has become one of the most watched series in the entire world.
The expectations have reached such a point that Netflix made its highest investment ever for the production of the latest season, spending a figure around 30 million dollars on it.
A lot of that money went towards the actors, as their wages continue to climb upwards.
How much do the actors on ‘Stranger Things’ earn?
Let’s take a look at the figures that each of the main actors are getting paid per episode, starting with the highest earners.
These are Winona Ryder and David Habour, who play Joyce Byers and Jim Hopper, respectively. Both actors started out earning between 80,000 and 100,000 dollars each per episode and, in the fourth season, their pay packet has reached 350,000 dollars.
The salary rises also affected the five young stars. Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) and Noah Schnapp (Will) started out earning 20,000 dollars per episode in 2016. Now, the figure is up to 250,000 dollars.
Meanwhile, Natalia Dyer (Nancy), Joe Keery (Steve) and Charlie Heaton (Jonathan) are currently reportedly making 150,000 dollars per episode.
