Sofia Vergara’s journey to attain $180 million wealth
Sofía Vergara rose to fame through her role in Modern Family, one of the most successful sitcoms in television history. The show’s 11-season run not only made the entire cast millionaires but also showcased Sofía’s prowess in negotiations. Going into the fourth season, contract talks involving Sofía and her co-stars were messy, leading to a lawsuit-level situation. Eventually, ABC agreed to pay them between $170,000 and $180,000 per episode, a significant increase from the $65,000 they were earning in season 3.
Beyond the financial gains, the negotiations secured year-to-year increases and back-end deals. By season 8, Sofía and her cast-mates were earning a reported $350,000 per episode, which increased to $500,000 per episode in season 9. This lucrative deal carried them through the show’s conclusion in season 11. Sofía’s peak earnings per season, likely during season 9 with 22 episodes, would have been around $11 million.
