I'm sure there are many who have wondered the same as to How much Polish Actors really make. So i'm really curious because it's more like you see one movie, tv propramme, reality show and stand up and you have seen them all. Polish Actors take anything that is thrown at them that is why the same faces appear everywhere and it makes you wonder if there is really any money to be made in Acting. I have even seen a few of them singing or should i say try to sing and it's just rediculous even those that have been acting for decades. So i want to know who are the highest paid actors and how much they are paid per Movie or per Episode on TV shows. If you have a link with the list i will be most appreciative. Dziękujemy.

or hear them as the case maybe, that lector dude is on everything, in fact ive never heard another lector voice, you cant mistake that monotone drone. He just cant quite catch the essence of films like....... Pulp Fiction for example, talk about a monopoly. Actually hes not on cartoons, they have individual voices.

A hell of a lot more than they will ever admit....or not a whole lot....at 15 I was working in a theatre as an ASM and couldnt get over the Dahlings moaning about being on minimum wage......it was something around 6/7 hundred quid a week for 4 hours "work" a day.......

Kasia Cichopek - 7,1 tys. zł ("M jak miłość")

Marcin Mroczek - 7 tys. zł ("M jak miłość")

Magda Cielecka - 130 tys. zł za 13 odcinków ("Hotel 52")

Tomasz Karolak - 10 tys. zł ("39 i pół")

Artur Żmijewski - 7,5 tys. zł ("Ojciec Mateusz")

Joanna Jabłczyńska - 2 tys. zł ("Na Wspólnej")

Cezary Żak - 7 tys. zł ("Ranczo")

They are beggers compared to Charlie Sheen who was making a milion USD per episode in "2&1/2 men".

Of coz mate, don't even need to go that far in comparison.
If this is true grubas it works out to about plus or minus 2000 GBP per episode before taxes for a good actor here in Polska. Now i know why Kuba from X-FACTOR was demanding 10 tys zł per casting session. Considering how much they make from X-FACTOR i even feel sorry for the winner who is going to walk away with a 100 tys zł in all earnest it should be more.

So inorder to maintain a lavish lifestyle which these actors desire they will have to pick up more roles in disregard of where they come from.Hopefully they are paid more in Movies considering that Poland is the largest producer of films in Eastern Europe. No wonder it's difficult to pick up roles in commercials.This is where most of these actors earn the extra quid from and it closes the door for people who are trying to make a break through. In commercials you need fresh faces, ordinary people so as to reach out to the targeted market and not only Big stars to endorse a product. Especially the Old, Blonde Actress in the Polish Produced SIM PLUS commercials seems like she is indispensable... Even saw Old Andrzej Grabowski and a few other familiar faces trying their hands at Stand Up comedy. Now i know why....

No it's not that hard.Szymon Majewski (well,not really an actor but close to) just signed a contract with PKO BP,his pay (before taxes) is 3320000 (3.32 m) PLN.

i even feel sorry for the winner who is going to walk away with a 100 tys zł in all earnest it should be more.

No worry.I am sure they do ok.
