The Big Bang Theory Cast Net Worth ! How Much Does Each Actor Gets Paid! Why the Big Bang Theory Cast Took Surprising Pay Cuts! The Big Bang Theory …
The world’s best watched TV series gets a twelfth season. If the ratings of The Big Bang Theory are astronomical, then that includes a similar salary. According to NME calculations, the top trio of the series – Jim Parsons (Sheldon), Johnny Galecki (Leonard) and Kaley Cuoco (Penny) – has already earned $140 million (€130 million) per person from the sitcom.
Remarkably, the amount could have been a lot higher. For a long time, the trio were paid a million dollars per episode, but decided to hand over a ton of this to their colleagues for the new season. Mayim Bialik (Amy) and Melissa Rauch (Bernadette) didn’t come in until season three and have a less prominent role, which also made their salaries a lot lower. It still is, by the way. They now earn about half of Sheldon, Leonard and Penny.
With $900,000 per episode, the three are no longer in the top one million, an amount that Friends’ actors also received during their last seasons. Still, they are far above any other actor in any series, but they don’t earn very badly either.
