Emmy Rossum Signs on for Season 8 of ‘Shameless’ After Equal Pay Dispute

Emmy Rossum has successfully obtained a salary raise for her starring role in Shameless.

After the actress had demanded to be paid the same as her co-star William H. Macy, it didn’t take long before producers of the show gave exactly her what she wanted.

According to Variety, Showtime had already offered Rossum equal pay before negotiations started, but she rejected the deal and asked for a larger salary than Macy’s to make up for all the seasons she was paid less than him.

Well, her latest tweet confirmed two things: Her pay raise and another season of Shameless.
