“Some people were bartenders, others still had their side jobs. They were damn famous, internationally, they couldn’t go out on the outside, but they had to keep their side jobs because they couldn’t afford not to. We couldn’t afford taxis to go to set.”

Even the actor of A mum for a friend, Sean Gunn spoke up Twitter of the lack of payment of Netflix for the royalties to the actors of the series.

“Apparently I didn’t specify that my royalties are not paid by Netflix, but are actually paid by the production company, Warner Bros.” By the way, now, the brother of Gunn And James Gunndirects Warner Bros. Discovery and co-administer i DC Studios.

Gunn has continued: “Netflix doesn’t pay royalties to actors, so there’s no sharing a show’s success with Netflix. It is true that they pay a license fee to Warner Bros. and that Warner Bros. then pays royalties out of that license fee. Very small amount, especially for a show that has been on the air for a long time. But when the show is a huge hit and generates millions of dollars in profits for Netflix, we don’t share any of it, largely because there’s no transparency about their numbers. But in reality it is about fairness for all. We just want to make sure we have a fair deal. If a show is successful, we should be a part of it, it seems completely reasonable to me.”
