Here with me are some details of how actors are paid.. Its just estimated details that might be on low budget since we know Jiffy pictures are the best in terms of paying their actors..
Ill use an example of Becky actors for easy understanding.
According to Kenya Actors Board Act 2023,the new rate card for all actors in any local TV shows are as follows:
For the main actors for example Becky, is supposed to be paid 30,000 per episode. This is because she is the main actor and the story rotates around her and for that reason she is supposed to get bot less than 30,000..
Then are those seem to be main actors but they can leave the movie before it ends. Junior, Martha and Trisha are a good example of this. Their pay is 25,000
Then we have supportive actors example Moh or Lexy..The character they play helps to make the show interesting. They get paid 20,000 per episode. These are rule of acting and not my own words. There are also kids here who are also supportive. Jeff being a good example he gets paid 15,500 per episode..
We also have these actors known as extras. We have got two types of extras,those give a role that requires them to speak and those that aren’t supposed to speak we just get to see them ..
For the extras that speak example the lawyer that went with Tito to the mansion, Shantelle’s caretaker and Becky’s landlord they get 3,000 per episode.
Then for the extras who we just see them but dont get to hear their voices..Not all of them are extras because there are those that will accept to be seen so that to become celebrities..
But for those who are seen but their voices can’t be heard for example Raazy Junior who was seen during Lexy’s welcoming party.she was seen helping Becky with serving the guests. This kind of extra gets 1500 per episode
