I just thought of a question on the way home from work this evening. Does anyone know a ballpark estimate of what the cast members make on The Walking Dead? I was just wondering if they are millionaires now or what? Another question is does anyone know the figures on how much money the TV show has made? Thanks!!

I don't think they're all millionaires quite yet (maybe Lincoln). I do remember though that somebody said (could have been Frank Darabont) the cast were working for less than what they would typically earn due to budget constraints and because they wanted to work with Frank, whether that's the case now I don't know.

I doubt they're earning anything near to what other Actors are being paid for on TV shows like House, CSI, Boardwalk Empire etc.. also it's actually a reason as to why the show has many British actors as they're cheaper than the cost of bringing in more prominent American actors.

If I were to guess, I would say Andrew Lincoln (most likely the top earner) earns about $40,000-£90,000 per episode.

I'd do it for a pack of Skittles.

Something tells me you would not make it big in Hollywood.
