Here's What the Average Actor Makes Per Year

How much does an actor make per year? A new chart shows the average wage for almost every job in America.

Reddit user Dan Lin has uploaded a chart showing the mean-wage breakdown for every career in America tracked by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The top wages all belong to specialized medical fields, while the ones on the bottom are all in food and hospitality. The numbers in parentheses are the mean wages, in thousands, while the different shapes show the range of salaries available in that field. It is interesting to point out the average wage for an actor. In fact, the average earnings for an actor is around $87,200 a year. That is more than a Biology teacher and mechanical engineer but, less than a Space Scientist and Management Analysts.
