Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!

1 [on his role as Nick Clark in Fear the Walking Dead (2015)] I think it's important to distinguish that Nick isn't a drug addict, he's an addict. "Drug" is neither here nor there, really. It's just a solution to a problem. I guess if you're an addict and you only really have one problem in life, which is where to get your next fix from or burst from life, that single-minded conviction and willpower would put you in good standings. He's already concerned with life and death.
2 I'm sure there will come a time when I won't be able to walk around so easy. I don't necessarily want to be famous. It takes away from the craft a little bit, but I think it's part of the job these days, it seems to be.
