Kiwi on list of TV top earners

The list is out of the highest-paid TV stars and Kiwi actress Anna Paquin is laughing all the way to the bank.

The True Blood actress is the third-highest paid TV actress , earning $350,000 per episode in US TV Guide’s list of highest paid TV actors, behind Grey’s Anatomy stars Sandra Oh and Ellen Pompeo, who each earn $447,000.

Two and a Half Men stars Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer top the list of male actors earning $956,000 and $829,000 per episode, but industry insiders say The Big Bang Theory stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Couco could beat their peers’ pay packets as they are currently negotiating new contracts for $1.28 M an episode.
