In recent years, motion picture and TV actors with speaking parts earned a minimum daily rate of about $800 and about $4000 for a 5-day week. Because of irregular work, beginners' salaries are generally quite low and must be supplemented by other part time jobs. Full time beginners earn about $35,000. Only 10% of talented performers earn $100,000 or more per year. The median expected salary for a typical actor/performer in the U.S. ranges from $45,000 to $57,000.
