Forbes magazine has released its annual list of the highest paid television actresses. It takes into account data received in numbers between June 1, 2024 and June 1, 2024, and does not include taxes and fees.
The celebrities on the Forbes list have collectively earned $156.5 million this year.
We present you the ranking of the richest TV actresses in Hollywood in 2024.
For the year, her income amounted to 8.5 million dollars.
Opening the list is one of the stars of the bizarrely long-running crime drama NCIS, which has been renewed through its 15th season. It stars Perrette as the cheerful Goth medical examiner Abby Shuto, and the series’ soundtrack includes a song by her (along with Cote de Pablo).
In a year she became richer by 9 million dollars.
The actress, who played the role of the first lady of the United States in the popular TV series House of Cards, is the only newcomer to the top 10 most expensive TV actresses. Despite this, Wright has stated that she has yet to achieve salary parity with her partner Kevin Spacey. “I don’t think I get paid that much,” the actress told Rhapsody Magazine. “I was promised that they would give me a raise, but… I don’t believe in it. I really don’t like being lied to.”
She received 10 million dollars in a year.
The only Bollywood actress on the Forbes list. More than 50 percent of her income comes from advertising. Priyanka may not be in the top 10 richest television actresses next year as Bollywood Life reported that Chopra had to take a significant pay cut to continue filming the American series Quantico.
Earned 11 million dollars.
The Scandal series, in which Washington plays, will end this year (it has 7 seasons in total). Therefore, the actress is likely to leave the list in 2024. But it is unlikely that this now greatly excites the dark-skinned beauty. She recently became a mother for the second time. Due to her pregnancy, the filming of "Scandal" was postponed, and the seventh season has fewer episodes than the previous ones.
The amount of annual income is 12 million dollars.
The Modern Family star is also known for her roles as Carol on Ed, Denise Bauer on Boston Lawyers, and Sarah Shepherd on Lost. In 2011, the actress and her Modern Family co-stars received the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Ensemble Cast. And this, one might say, is a hard-won victory, because Bowen has been nominated for this award every year since 2006, for various series such as Boston Lawyers and Weeds.
The income was 12.5 million dollars.
The daughter of the legendary Jayne Mansfield (it was from her that the appearance of the Barbie doll was copied) is best known for her role as detective Olivia Benson in the crime series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. The actress has been participating in filming since 1999, and since 2007 her fee for each episode is 400 thousand dollars. Law & Order has 19 seasons (the 19th began airing in September 2024) and may not stop there, which means the name Mariska Hargitay will not disappear from the list of the richest television stars.
Received 13 million dollars a year.
Pompeo is a veteran of Grey's Anatomy. She has been playing there since 2005. For each episode, she receives 350 thousand dollars.
And the actress made her debut in Moonlight Mile, where she starred with Jake Gyllenhaal, one of the actors who was able to fantastically change his appearance for the sake of filming.
Annual earnings - 13 million dollars.
The star of the project "Office" got the third place in the ranking. Much of her income comes from various film royalties and an advertising deal with McDonald's.
Earned $26 million in a year.
The 'Big Bang' star was ranked second in the ranking of the highest paid foreign television actresses of 2024. Though Cuoco's fee is $1 million per episode, she doesn't have endorsement deals, unlike the celebrity topping the list.
In addition, this year the actress, along with a number of other actors of The Big Bang Theory, refused to raise fees so that two other participants in the famous series (Maim Bialik and Melisa Rauch) could be paid more.
Annual income - 41.5 million dollars.
The heroine of the TV series "Modern Family" managed to stay in the lead in the list of the highest paid TV actresses for six years in a row. About a quarter of Vergara's income came from her roles in Modern Family, but endorsement deals with Head & Shoulders, Pepsi and CoverGirl, as well as perfume sales under the Sofia Vergara brand, also contributed.
