Jenna Ortega was reportedly paid a whopping $35,000 per episode in season 1 to essay the part of Wednesday Adams in the Netflix horror-comedy hit series. Ortega also plays Goody Addams, Wednesday’s deceased ancestor from the 1600s, who she sees in visions of the past. Well, given it was the titular role, she definitely had to top the list.

In another video shared on YouTube by Filmman, it’s been reported that Moosa Mostafa was reportedly paid $ 5,000 per episode to play Eugene Ottinger, a Nevermore Academy student who can control bees. Jamie McShane, who played Donovan Galpin – Jericho’s sheriff who is suspicious of Nevermore Academy and Wednesday specifically, reportedly received $15,000 per episode. Riki Lindhome, aka Dr. Valerie Kinbott – Wednesday’s court-ordered therapist, was paid $20,000/episode.

Details regarding the earnings of other cast members, including Gwendoline Christie, aka Larissa Weems – the shapeshifting principal of Nevermore Academy, and Christina Ricci, aka Marilyn Thornhill / Laurel Gates – the botany teacher and Wednesday & Enid’s dorm mother at the academy, are unknown.

With Wednesday renewed for a second season by Netflix, we bet every one of these cast members will see a hike in their salaries.
