Chalk this up as a win for the kids!
Modern Family is one of the most successful shows on television, and yet it would not be ANYWHERE without the actors who portray the kids on the show. So we're super glad to hear that almost all of the kid actors on the show will be receiving a pay upgrade which they began negotiating for as soon as the adults on their show successfully renegotiated theirs.
Rico Rodriguez, Nolan Gould, Ariel Winter, and Sarah Hyland who respectively play Manny, Luke, Ariel and Haley on the show will all be getting paid about $70,000 per episode now which is definitely fair considering their pivotal roles on the show. Hyland, who previously was receiving a bit more than her co-stars, should be making about the same as her television siblings from now on.
Aubrey Anderson-Emmons', whom joined the show last year as the adopted daughter Libby, representatives also tried to renegotiate her salary, but since she's been on the show for only one season - that didn't happen.
We're sure it will soon enough, and congratulations to the other kids for getting what they're worth!
