Grace VanderWaal isn’t seeing stars, she’s seeing dollar signs … because we’ve learned she’s getting paid a nice chunk of change for her lead role in “Stargirl.”
The 17-year-old singer is off to a pretty strong start financially in her acting career after securing top billing in the Disney+ movie, “Stargirl.” According to her minor’s contract, obtained by TMZ, Grace took home a base salary of $125,000 for the first film, and it looks like she’s got a bigger payday on the horizon for the upcoming sequel.
Grace is in line to double her earnings for the second ‘Stargirl’ movie … the contract says she’ll get paid a cool $250,000 to reprise her role as Stargirl Caraway, and Disney says the sequel is already in development.
We’ll do the math for ya … Grace will earn at least $375,000 just in base pay for both films. And, if there’s a third film, she’ll rake in $500,000. Yes, it pays well to be a Disney star.
Fat paydays are nothing new for Grace who, at the tender age of 12, banked $1 million for winning “America’s Got Talent.”
