Zendaya hits the jackpot with a major Euphoria raise!
New York, New York - Zendaya has earned an impressive crop of accolades for her role as Rue on Euphoria, and it looks like her pay is getting a big bump to match!
The 26-year-old has led the hit HBO series for two seasons, and her performance made her the youngest-ever winner of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the Emmy Awards.
Zendaya's co-star Sydney Sweeney brought significant attention to the show's salaries after she admitted she didn't earn enough to take a break from work if she wanted to, despite earning an Emmy nomination for her performance in the show.
In addition to starring as Rue, Zendaya became an executive producer on Euphoria in its second season.
Though the pay disparities between herself and her co-stars seem steep, the Replay singer's impressive slate of upcoming projects certainly proves she's in demand elsewhere.
The raise will make Zendaya one of the highest-paid stars on television, with John Krasinki topping the list with a reported $2 million per episode of Jack Ryan, which he also executive produces.
