Stranger Things stars are getting a big raise in advance of Season 3
The child stars of the Netflix series will see their salary soar from $30,000 an episode to between $150,000-$250,000 an episode, according to Deadline's Nellie Andreeva, who adds that Millie Bobby Brown "is believed to have landed a bigger raise than her young counterparts" thanks to her breakout star status. Adult stars Winona Ryder and David Harbour also scored significant raises, bumping their per-episode salary to $200,000 an episode to keep their pay ahead of the children. As Andreeva explains, "while actors cast as series regulars on a TV show almost always have long-term deals, it has become a tradition for the casts of successful series to renegotiate their contracts after the second season after receiving one-time bonuses ahead of Season 2. That is what happened with the main players on Stranger Things." UPDATE: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ryder and Harbour are each getting $350,000 an episode while the main kid stars will earn $250,000 per episode.

An unhealthy obsession between adult Stranger Things fans and the show’s child stars have been building for months
As Dee Lockett notes, the unhealthy obsession began last year when certain fans wouldn’t distinguish between the child actors from the characters they play. It proceeded recently with adult fans trying to sexualize Finn Wolfhard, with one 27-year-old model asking the 14-year-old Wolfhard to “hit me up in four years.” There was also some controversy when an NBC Universal executive tweeted about Millie Bobby Brown’s “grown-up” looks. And it all culminated in last weekend's story over Wolfhard not stopping for fans outside of his hotel. “The kids of Stranger Things,” says Lockett, “have been embroiled in a terribly adult controversy.”

Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard has been getting grief for not stopping to interact with fans outside his hotel over the weekend. But the 21-year-old Turner, using her experience as a former child star, says it’s outrageous that “fully grown adults” would wait outside a hotel and then “abuse them when they don’t stop for them.” She adds: “It doesn’t matter if they are an actor... they are kids first. Give them the space they need in order to grow without feeling like they owe… anyone anything for living their childhood dreams.”
