I’ve seen the residuals for my shows drop significantly once they’ve been streamed. I’m lucky because I participated in The Big Bang Theory, which has been on network television for years. Since he switched to streaming, we’ve gone from day to night. I don’t see how it is possible for an up-and-coming actor these days to actually be able to make a living“
