Do movie actors get royalties?

by Ratan Srivastava

Yes, they are compensated. Key parts on popular series pay much, as they do for TV’s biggest performers, but the money doesn’t end there. The performers receive leftover checks called royalties when their shows are broadcast, resold, published on DVD, acquired by a streaming video service, and otherwise used beyond what they were initially paid on. The movie actors are also the ones that get paid.

So, are repeats paid to all actors? Some do and some don’t, according to the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. Royalties can lead to larger payoffs that outweigh the initial salary for the main performance. Supporting actors, but on the other hand, will not receive any residual payments.

‘Friends’ Royalties

Between 1994 and 2004, “Friends” aired for ten seasons. Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow, and, of course, Jennifer Aniston — one of the wealthiest actors of all time — all became stars as a result of the programme. The cast continues to benefit from the show’s popularity. According to USA Today, Warner Bros. gets $1 billion each year from “Friends.” Every year, 2% of the money, or $20 million, is distributed to each of the superstars.

‘Seinfeld’ Royalties

“Seinfeld,” the comedy about nothing, lasted for nine seasons, finishing in 1998. It is one of the most popular and profitable comedies of all time. Since actors casting as, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Michael Richards, and Jason Alexander don’t hold a stake in the programme, Jerry Seinfeld and co-creator Larry David get the lion’s share of royalties, as per the International Business Times. According to New York Magazine, each of David and Seinfeld could earn $400 million every syndication cycle.
