Salary: $9,000,000
Show: House of Cards
Role: Claire Underwood

Wright was always the true star of House of Cards. With that said, we sincerely hope that Wright’s salary has shot up now that Kevin Spacey has been removed from the show. Claire will finally be the official queen of the Netflix political drama’s final season, and we sure hope her paychecks reflect not just her increased role, but Netflix’s regret for not doing this sooner.
