Many actors go into the field because they absolutely love the craft, but it certainly doesn’t hurt that often actors are paid handsomely for a job that is rather enjoyable. For those who are lucky enough to star on a hit show, the residuals they can earn might even outpace the original salary they earned for the show. Here is the impressive amount that these actors earn from reruns.
Ed O’Neill – Married With Children
Ed O’Neill earns up to $10 million from reruns of Married With Children. The show lasted from 1987 until 1997 and helped make him a household name. He later went on to star in the popular show Modern Family.
Kelsey Grammer – Frasier
Kelsey Grammer spent 11 seasons over the span of 20 years playing Frasier Crane. The show was a spinoff based off of his character from Cheers, which helped Grammer become more well known. He makes up to $13 million a year from reruns of Frasier.
