Do the actors recieve repeat fees

Post by Wayne Turkin » Fri Oct 10, 2014 7:56 am

Was wondering if any of the actors get any dough for repeats sales of merchandise etc or does it all go to whoever owns the rights,also did the main cast become wealthy staring in Auf Pet? .I can imagine they would of got something like min wage for the first series :lol: but sure I read Barry picked up something like 250k for the last one.

I'm guessing it might be what original contracts were like.
Back in 83 VHS was in it's early days and the 80s were nothing like the mass media rubbish we have now.

This could explain why Drama channel needs to add 16 minutes of pure adverts to each episode to make the money?

I'm guessing the Drama Channel pays a fair bit of license for Pet from ITV and the BBC.

Jimmy Nail stated in his autobiography that he was offered £600 per episode for series one but got them up to £650. He also asked if any of the cast were being paid more than him to which he was assured they were all being paid the same. Jimmy then said that was fine but if he found out otherwise then there would be trouble. He later found out that he had been lied to and there was certainly trouble.

That's one way. On the other hand he could always take a hardline.

Was £650 a lot of money back in 1982? It doesn't sound like much nowadays.
