Millie Bobby Brown creates history with a $10M salary for actors under 20
Even if “Enola Holmes” didn’t rank among the top 10 most-watched films on Netflix, it was a success enough to merit a follow-up. The teenage sister of Sherlock Holmes, played by Henry Cavill in “Enola Holmes 2,” is played by Millie Bobby Brown. Unconfirmed reports say that Millie Bobby Brown is going to get paid $10 million (£8.4 million) for her role in “Enola Holmes 2.”
The ‘Stranger Things star, who is 18 years old, is reportedly breaking the record for the highest upfront payment made to an actor under the age of 20. The release of its sequel on Netflix later this year has just been confirmed. Variety reports that the actress, who played the part of Enola in the 2020 movie, will receive a much higher salary for the follow-up. With the aid of her friends and her well-known brother, Enola will attempt to solve the mystery of a missing girl in the new movie.
The movie, which was well-received by critics, will get a sequel, according to Netflix’s confirmation in May. The streaming service tweeted: “A sequel is in the works! In ENOLA HOLMES 2, Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill will both be back. In addition to revealing Bobby Brown’s pay, Variety also revealed that Tom Cruise, one of just two actors who “justify their compensation,” will make $100 million for “Top Gun: Maverick.” In addition, Will Smith received $35 million for Emancipation, Chris Hemsworth received $20 million for Extraction 2, and Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling received $12.5 million for Barbie.
According to reports, Millie received a sizable salary of $20,000 per episode of Stranger Things’ first season. Due to the show’s enormous popularity, her pay reportedly jumped to $250,000 per episode by season three, according to Deadline.
