Kylie Rogers is just 10-years-old, but the pint-sized actress is already earning a big paycheck to appear on the new Steven Spielberg-produced ABC sci-fi drama, “The Whispers.”
For the show’s pilot and first 21 days of work, Rogers raked in $US20,000, reports TMZ.
Since the show was picked up for series, Rogers will now earn a whopping $US20,000 per episode for season one.
No word on how many episodes will be in season one, but Rogers will make even more if the show gets picked up for a second season, according to her contract.
TMZ was able to obtain a copy of Rogers’ contract because it has to be filed with the courts since she is still a minor.
In comparison, 12-year-old actress Rowan Blanchard is reported to be making $US10,000 per episode for the new Disney show, “Girl Meets World.”
Despite her age, Rogers has many credits to her name. The 10-year-old has appeared on 17 TV shows since 2012, including NBC’s “Private Practice” and ABC’s “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.”
“The Whispers” — about aliens who take over Earth using children — also stars “American Horror Story” actress Lily Rabe, “Heroes” star Milo Ventimiglia, and tons of other little-known child actors.
“The Whispers” will premiere mid-season on ABC. Watch the super creepy trailer below:
