The adults of “Modern Family” aren’t the only ones seeing green.After contract renegotiations throughout the past month, the kids of ABC’s hit comedy will see a surge in their paychecks, too.
Rico Rodriguez, Nolan Gould, Ariel Winter, and Sarah Hyland who play Manny, Luke, Ariel, and Haley, respectively, are set to now receive salaries close to $70,000 per episode, according to Deadline.
The amount will nearly triple the gang’s previous salaries.
The only one left without a pay bump is five-year-old Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, who joined the cast this past season as Cameron and Mitchell’s outspoken daughter, Lily.
Contract renegotiations come about after a long-winded battle between 20th Century Fox and adult castmembers of “Modern Family” for a pay increase following the show’s 17 Emmy nominations – the highest of any network series.
Previously, the adult cast, save Ed O’Neill, was receiving around the neighbourhood of $65,000 per episode for season three.
Castmembers finally reached a settlement at the end of July leaving the stars with paychecks near the $150,000 range.
