How big is the pay gap between The Last of Us stars Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal?

According to a recent tweet by the account Pop Tingz, Pedro Pascal who plays Joel earned around $600,000 per episode, while Bella Ramsey who plays Ellie received $70,000 in the first season. The authenticity of the report has not been confirmed yet, even though the tweet has been going viral on various social media sites.

How did the fans react to the pay gap between Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal?

The opinions among the fans were as divided as the show’s first season’s controversial finale. Many were of the view that the pay gap is unfair, as both the actors are playing protagonists who are equally as important, while there were others who argued Pedro’s star power justified the higher fee.

What can we expect from The Last of Us Season 2?

Showrunner Craig Mazin teased the reporters about what’s to come in Season 2, “Sometimes it will be different radically and sometimes it will be barely different at all, but it’s going to be different and it will be its own thing. It won’t be exactly like the game. It will be the show that Neil and I want to make. We are making it with Bella.”
