You won’t believe how much she made all these years.
Julia Scarlett Elizabeth Louis-Dreyfus Hall was on born January 13, 1961, better known as Julia Louis-Dreyfus, is an American actress, comedian, singer, and producer. She is known for her work in the television comedy series Saturday Night Live (1982–1985), Seinfeld (1989–1998), The New Adventures of Old Christine (2006–2010), and Veep (2012–2019). She is one of the most decorated actresses in American television history, winning more Emmy Awards and more Screen Actors Guild Awards than any other performer, tying Cloris Leachman for the most acting wins.
Though it seems impossible to imagine now, Louis-Dreyfus’ character, Elaine, wasn’t originally supposed to be featured in “Seinfeld.” After the pilot aired in 1989, executives at NBC said the show had too many men and asked creators Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld to add a role for a woman. David had met Louis-Dreyfus on “SNL” and remembered her when it came time to cast for the role of Elaine. She won the role and wowed audiences so much that she won an Emmy in 1996.
In 1993, Louis-Dreyfus and the rest of the supporting cast negotiated raises to earn $150,000 per episode. In 1997, the supporting cast asked for $1 million per episode. The network countered with $200,000, then $400,000. The final deal was $600,000 per episode for the show’s final season or $15 million in total per cast member.
In total, before inflation, the supporting cast members earned approximately $45 million in base salary from “Seinfeld.
Seinfeld wasn't her only hit. From 2012 to 2019, Louis-Dreyfus played Vice President Selina Meyer on “Veep.” Louis-Dreyfus was paid $500,000 per episode. Yet again, Louis-Dreyfus scored not one but six Emmys for her performance. With endorsement deals and other income sources, she earned around $8 million annually in recent years, making her one of the five highest-paid TV actresses in the world.
