Iain Armitage is a 13-year-old boy, but his bank account is all grown up. As the young star of Young Sheldon, Iain is doing well for himself outside of his normal funding source. His most recent animated film earned him yet another huge amount.
According to his contract, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court and acquired by TMZ, the 13-year-old actor earned at least $100,000 for his work on “PAW Patrol: The Movie,” but he could have earned much more.
Iain was paid $10,000 for each recording session he completed for the film. According to the contract, he was guaranteed at least 10 sessions, so he’s already made $100,000.
Iain, who plays Chase in the animated picture, was also eligible for contractual incentives. It was based on the film’s box office performance in the United States and Canada following its August release, but it didn’t work out for him.
According to the documents, Iain would have received a $175,000 incentive if the picture grossed at least $150 million in the United States. There are other escalators that may bring his total incentive haul to $1.675 million. It is dependent on how many children drag their parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles to the movies.
However, the film fell short of expectations, grossing just $130 million at the box office, so he settled for a six-figure salary. Even at the age of 13, or any age for that matter, it’s still a pretty great check.
Iain is making a lot of money for his age. He appears to have a bright future ahead of him, and his followers and supporters are there to back him every step of the way.
