Modern Family’s young stars begin contract renegotiation

By Tribute on July 30, 2012 | 3 Comments

Now that the older cast members of ABC‘s hit show, Modern Family, have been successful in their renegotiations, the younger actors want a piece of the pie. Nolan Gould, 13,  Ariel Winter, 14, and Rico Rodriguez, 13, have been in talks to join together in their attempts, whereas Sarah Hyland, 21, who already makes more than her younger co-stars, will renegotiate separately. Youngest star, five-year-old Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, is not likely going to see much of an increase.

Whether these young actors are successful in their mission or not, it is certain that although they may spend as much time onscreen as their adult co-stars, who will make up to $170,000 per episode, they will not be awarded anywhere near that. The show’s fourth season remains on schedule, with the younger cast continuing to be on set, as opposed to their older co-stars who decided to boycott a table reading while they were ‘at war’ with the studio. ~Morgan Bates
