She'll make $1 million per episode of HBO's Euphoria
Euphoria star Zendaya has reached a new agreement with HBO, making her one of the highest-paid television actors in Hollywood.
She will now get close to $1 million per episode for her incredibly moving depiction of Rue Bennett, the show's protagonist.
Zendaya at the age of 24, became the actor to win the prize for best lead actress in a drama.
In 2022, Zendaya made history again when she became the only Black woman to win two Emmy Awards for best lead actress in a drama.
“My greatest wish for Euphoria was that it could help heal people,” Zendaya said while accepting her second Emmys trophy in 2022
Zendaya will be sitting pretty relative to her “Euphoria” co-star Sydney Sweeney, who discussed the difficulties of making a living as an actor.
Zendaya now joins the ranks of fellow $1-million milestone members.
She included the lead cast of “Friends” in their final season, the lead cast of “Game of Thrones" and many more.
The previous highest-paid Black female performer on network television is Angela Bassett, earning $450,000 per episode of "9-1-1".
