Kaley Cuoco is laughing all the way to the bank!
As we all know, The Big Bang Theory has been extended (hurrah) and according to reports, Kaley is set to earn a whopping $US43.2 million for the final two seasons.
That’s in addition to the squillions she’s already netted for the previous 11 seasons!
Vulture has estimated the total amount she will have made by of 2018, when the show is, at present to end – and it’s eye watering!
When the show first started back in 2007, Kaley and her two main co-stars, Jim Parsons (Sheldon) and Johnny Galecki (Leonard), were each paid $US60,000 per episode.
They got a pay rise for seasons four, five and six and each pocketed $US200,000 per episode before negotiating another pay rise for season seven of $350,000 per episode.
In 2014 the three main stars signed on for three more seasons at a whopping $1 million per episode each.
Despite the fact that Kaley, Jim and Johnny are rumoured to have taken pay cuts for season 11 in order bump up the salaries of co-stars Mayim Bialik (Amy Farrah Fowler) and Melissa Rauch (Bernadette Rostenkowski) who earn a lot less, Kaley still netted US$900,000 per episode.
With all that in mind, it’s estimated that Kaley has earned $US139.8 million from her time on The Big Bang Theory.
Not bad for a 31-year-old!
