Highest-Paid TV Actors And Actresses 2018



Sofia Vergara is the top-earning TV star of any genre, banking $42.5 million between June 1, 2017, and June 1, 2018.
Small-screen stars make big bucks: Just take a look at Sofia Vergara, who banked $42.5 million in our scoring period, earning more than any other actor or actress on TV.
In fact, Vergara banked $16 million more than the next top earner across genders, Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons ($26.5 million).
Relative to movies, where male stars frequently pocket many times more than their female counterparts, TV has a far smaller gap between actors and actresses, at least among top earners.
Highest-Paid TV Actors 2018: Jim Parsons Leads With $26.5 Million
The 10 highest-earning TV actresses banked a cumulative $168.5 million to the actors' $181 million. Compare that with movies, where the 10 highest-paid film actresses together pocketed $186 million — just a quarter of the actors' $748.5 million.

Perhaps the discrepancy is smaller because actresses have more roles on the small screen, leading to more opportunities for lucrative gigs. According to GLAAD's annual Where We Are on TV report, 43% of regular characters counted on broadcast prime-time television are women. That is still a severe underrepresentation of the U.S. population, which is estimated to be 51% women. But the figures are far worse on the big screen: In the 100 most popular movies of 2017, just 31.8% of all speaking characters were female, according to a 2018 report from the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative at USC’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.
In order to compare paychecks, we combined our lists of highest-paid TV actors and actresses.
