Puck News, who broke the story, said that Zendaya “just closed a big re-negotiation on HBO’s Euphoria that likely puts her close to” other stars pulling in $1 million per episode. At the moment, the outlet said, other actors pulling in that amount are Chris Pratt for The Terminal List, Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren in 1923, and Jason Sudeikis on Ted Lasso.
