A New ‘The Walking Dead’ Cast Member Is Reportedly Being Paid More Than Andrew Lincoln In His 6th Season

Before the seventh season of The Walking Dead rolled around, AMC wasn’t exactly known for paying its biggest stars handsomely. At the time, The Walking Dead was the biggest show in all of television, and yet a list of the highest-paid actors on TV contained zero members from The Walking Dead cast. In fact, until they renewed their contracts in the seventh season, Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus — the biggest stars on the show at the time — were earning only $90,000 and $80,000 per episode, respectively, compared to a former The Walking Dead star, Sarah Wayne Callies, who was earning $150,000 an episode for the short-lived Prison Break reboot.
