According to research done by CableTV.com, the nine young principal performers in the Netflix series "Stranger Things" earn more than most Americans do make working 40 hours a week all year long.
The show’s actors take home as much as $350,000 per episode (that’s for Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven). There are eight episodes in the season, so that works out to $2.8 million for the season. Whoa.
The average annual salary in America is $47,060; Millie earns $31,818 for one eight-hour day. A worker paid at that rate would have to labor for 1,383 hours – almost 173 work days – to make that much. (Are you depressed yet?!)
She is by far the highest paid young member of the cast, with a salary that matches that of grownups Winona Ryder and David Harbour. Her co-stars make a mere $150,000 to $250,000 per episode. That’s 50 to 80 cents per second.
