HBO’s smash hit series “Big Little Lies” has got a lot of kiddos featured in the program — and one of them is getting paid BANK to run it back for the second season.
12-year-old Ivy George — who starred as Laura Dern‘s daughter, Amabella, in season 1, and was brought back for #2 — is making quite the bundle for her second go-round in Monterey.
According to Ivy’s minors contract — obtained by TMZ — she’s raking a cool $20,000 per episode … and with the season expected to run 7 deep, IG’s looking at a hefty $140k. On top of filming episodes, Ivy’s expected to be available for press junkets, photo shoots and pretty much anything else needed from her or likeness to promote the show — including up to 10 personal appearances for media and the like.
While she isn’t entitled to any profits HBO might make from ‘BLL,’ Ivy did get free airfare (first and/or business class), lodging and per diem during production. Season 2 is already airing, BTW — but good to know Ivy got treated better than her character did in season 1.
In case you’re unfamiliar, Amabella was part of a key story line that involved her getting bullied at school … which got her mom, Laura’s character, freaking out in epic fashion.
The kid has kinda taken a back seat for season 2 — so far, anyway (yeah, we’re watching) — but hey, at least Ivy’s getting paid well to show face in second grade … without much dialogue.
