Glee’s Lea Michele Got a Huge Raise! How Much Does She Make Now?
The last we heard, Glee star Lea Michele (Rachel) brought in about $45,000 for each episode.
Now while that isn’t exactly chump change, it’s still fairly low on the scale of TV actor salaries. In comparison, Lea’s fellow FOX star Zooey Deschanel, who plays the adorkably quirky Jess on New Girl, brings home twice that much per episode — a staggering $90,000.
However, when Lea put down $1.4 million for a new house in Los Angeles back in April, we couldn’t help but wonder if the star had managed to secure a bit of a raise.
William Keck of TV Guide magazine just revealed Lea’s current salary on Twitter, and it turns out she has gotten a bit of a paycheck bump. (And when we say “a bit,” we mean that the Glee starlet’s salary has almost doubled.)
What are our thoughts? Well, we’d say that a $30,000 raise doesn’t sound that bad, at all. Come to think of it, what’s she doing with only one new house? You’ve got some serious spending to catch up on, girl!
