Commercial actors have a strong reputation in the industry, and are often in high demand for projects. They are able to command higher fees for their work and may have a long list of credits to their name. In addition to their success in commercials, a prosperous commercial actor may also have a successful career in other areas of the entertainment industry, such as television or film.
The highest earning commercial actors make significantly more than the average actor. Some estimates suggest that top commercial actors can earn over seven figure sums for a single commercial. In addition to their fees for acting in commercials, the richest commercial actors may also have other sources of income, such as endorsement deals or residual payments each time the commercial airs. Depending on their level of experience, their reputation and popularity, the success for these actors earned them millions.
