By now you know that Stars Wars: The Force Awakens raked in cash by the truckload, but have you wondered how much of that the stars took home? An article in Variety (Caution: Variety gives away a major spoiler) breaks it down.

Younger stars John Boyega and Daisy Ridley got somewhere in the low six figures ($100K-$300K) because they're newbies with fewer credits. Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac, who already have film careers, got offers in the mid- to high six figures.

All the actors have the potential to make more as their parts grow in subsequent films, and deals are expected to be renegotiated as the next films get underway.
