Thank you so much for sharing this. The departures of Moss and Flannery probably were the reason why we didn’t see the budget cuts onscreen on B&B until 2020. the show saved a whopping million per annum without contractual hassles with others. My best guess I that KKL also took a paycut years ago down to 500 k, but we will not know for sure until she marries and divorces again, I guess.
By salary in 2021 Second in line probably should be Jacquie Wood these days due to her broad social media appeal. Followed by Scott Clifton (with quite a distance). Then some soap sets like John MCCook, Rena Sofer and Thorsten Kay. The rest probably is indeed down to the scale rates.
