This Is Us is currently one of the biggest shows on TV. On an average, the show brings in about 13 million viewers each week. Naturally, people are curious about how much the cast is making with the show’s popularity.
The show helped establish many unknown names as actors now. Justin Hartley, Sterling K. Brown, and Chrissy Metz are now household names. The show gave them the fame that every actor seeks.
Although Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore were known before from Gilmore Girls and A Walk To Remember, they did not get the same salary that they get now. Let us take a look at the cast and how much they make per episode.
This Is Us Cast’s Salary
Ventimiglia was one of the more established actors when the show started. He plays Jack on the show. In season 1, he started with being paid $85,000 per episode. Although that was impressive enough, he now makes around $250,000 per episode.
If he appears in all 18 episodes of season 3, he will make around 4.5 million dollars. Ventimiglia’s net worth is around $12 million. But if his recent pay scale is to be believed, his net worth will definitely climb up the charts.
Moore was maybe one of the most popular actors to have joined This Is Us as Rebecca. She was previously seen in The Princess Diaries and A Walk To Remember. Moore also has a fairly successful career as a musician. All of these factors made it easy for her to bag $85,000 per episode in the first season.
In season 3, her salary peaked at $250,000 per episode. Moore’s net worth is said to be around $10 million. With her diversity in movies, her net worth is moving in an upward trajectory.
Sterling K. Brown
Brown won an Emmy for his role in the American Crime Story. Brown plays one of the three Pearson children. He was able to negotiate a good offer and got about $35,000 more than Justin Hartley and Chrissy Metz.
His salary in season 1 was about $75,000 per episode for playing Randy. Now, he makes about $250,000 per episode. Brown has also appeared in Black Panther and Hotel Artemis. Starling’s net worth is around $10 million.
Metz plays Kate on the show. It is now famously known that she had only 81 cents in her account before she got the role. She got paid over $40,000 per episode in season 1.
Over the years, she grew her resume with Entourage and American Horror Story. She also starred in Breakthrough as the lead. Now, she makes over $250,000 per episode. From having less than a dollar in her account, Metz is now worth more than $7 million.
Hartley is best known for his roles in The Young and Restless and Passions. On This Is Us he plays Kevin. Starring on one episode of season 1 made him over $40,000.
The rest of the cast got together to ask for equal raise. This is how all of them are now paid over $250,000 per episode. Hartley’s net worth is also around $7 million.
It is nice to see that the whole cast of the series came together. Not only did they ask for a well-deserved raise but they also demanded equal pay for all.
