The Highest-Paid TV Actresses Have Been Revealed

The highest-paid actresses on TV have been revealed – and we’re *very* pleasantly surprised.

Sofia Vergara and Kaley Cuoco have both been named the most wealthy ladies on the box, raking in a majorly impressive $28.5 million each over the past 12 months.

This means they’re only £500,000 behind the most-paid TV actor. The Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons walked away with $29 million between 1 June 2014 – 1 June 2015.

What makes this even better is the fact that Kaley and Jim are Big Bang co-stars.

They both reportedly recently signed a contract that means they’re paid $1 million per episode and net more than 1% cut of the show’s back-end profits.

The only thing separating them is the fact that Jim appeared in smash-hit Broadway show An Act Of God and bagged an endorsement deal with Intel.

Sofia, of course, plays Gloria Delgado-Pritchett in Modern Family. But she’s also appeared in movies and used her savvy business sense to land endorsement deals.
