Ellen Pompeo has signed a new two-year deal, renewing her contract on Grey’s Anatomy through Season 15 and 16. The deal makes Pompeo the highest-paid actress on a prime-time drama. She’ll be making US$575,000 an episode, plus a seven-figure signing bonus, totaling US$20 million a year.Pompeo will also get a producing credit on Grey’s Anatomy and an executive producing credit on the upcoming untitled spin-off.
“I’m 48 now, so I’ve finally gotten to the place where I’m OK asking for what I deserve, which is something that comes only with age,” Pompeo said about her new deal. Pompeo continued: “I’m not the most ‘relevant’ actress out there. I know that’s the industry perception because I’ve been this character for 14 years. But the truth is, anybody can be good on a show season one and two. Can you be good 14 years later? Now, that’s a f**king skill.”
