Harrison Ford came back for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” with a few extra (million) dollars than his co-stars.
After all Ford is a legend in the business and did lead this team of talented actors to the biggest weekend opening in North American box office history. So how much extra did Harrison Ford receive?
While Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill were paid in the low seven figures, and franchise newcomers Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, and Adam Driver were paid in six figures, Ford made somewhere between $10 million and $25 million, the latter figure reported by The Daily Mail. Variety reports he was paid somewhere between $10 million and $20 million.
He probably even made more than BB-8.
Ford is easily the biggest name among the cast, and spent considerably more time on screen than Fisher and Hamill.
Cinema Blend reports some of the actors will also receive back end money once the box office take passes $1 billion.
Mark Hamill has also said he had money riding on whether certain things leaked, according to Cinema Blend.
