As an unknown, Gaertner is likely to have been on a fraction of his fee for his work.
Interestingly, Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown was reported to have been paid an £260,000 ($350,000) per episode for the Netflix series but it’s unclear which season of the show this was in relation to.
Again, the popularity and growing audience figures can lead to bigger pay cheques for actors.
Although Gaertner’s salary is not known, Ozark is likely to have launched his career with the young star going on to bigger and better things in the future.
