Stars from 'The Big Bang Theory' will take MAJOR pay cuts so their co-stars can get a raise

All hail Kween Kaley.

Kaley Cuoco and her band of merry geeks have come to the rescue of their fellow Big Bang Theory cast members.

It was reported a while ago that the OG five stars of the show, Kaley, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg all earn around $1 million USD per episode of the show. While Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch who joined the show in season three, only get paid $200,000 per episode.

Now, according to Variety, Kaley and her gang are offering to take a pay cut of $100,000 per episode so their money can be given to Mayim and Melissa.

This will boost the actresses' pay up to nearly $450,000 an episode for the upcoming 11th and 12th series of the hit comedy series.

Since joining the series, Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim) and Bernadette (Melissa) have become central characters to the show's plot. Amy is the girlfriend of Sheldon, a relationship that has added some serious ~emotional depth~ to his character. While Bernadette had a baby earlier this season with Howard Wolowitz’s character.

While it's still nowhere close to Kaley's pay, reps for Mayim and Melissa confirmed that the actresses are starting negotiations to raise their salaries this week.
