The four young boys of Netflix's Stranger Things, played by Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin and Noah Schnapp, have each received a pay increase for Season 3 that points to their importance in the show's varied cast. There's one more kid among them, however, whose salary was hitherto kept secret: Millie Bobby Brown, who plays the enigmatic Eleven.
As shown in a breakdown of TV actors' salaries reported by Variety, Brown is being paid at the same level as the primary adult stars in the show, Winona Ryder and David Harbour. Both are making $350,000 per episode, and 14-year-old Brown makes the same amount as those actors, plus the additional fees which many television stars now receive as executive producers or co-creators. Brown does not, however, get a producer credit on Stranger Things.
Over the first two seasons, the hit show has had its young heroes facing a variety of eldritch horrors in the setting of a fictional small town in 1980s America. Many fans watch for the interpersonal relationships between the characters as much as the monsters, so Eleven's development in her new group of friends will surely be a focus when Season 3 hits Netflix next year.
