Why would they not afford her? If Deidre joins another show, shouldn't she get a newbies salary since that's what she is on a new show?
LMAO. That would be like Meryl Streep joining Days and being paid the same as Molly Burnett.
Yes it would be since Meryl Streep would be new on Days and therefor wouldn't have a vets salary.
Like Mason said, it doesn't work that way. Like in sports, a soap is going to have to pay for a top notch actor like Deidre Hall to get her on their show. I don't know where you read such a thing but it's not true.
The article was from soap world. But all of you that say I'm wrong, where did you get your information?
Common knowledge of the free market system?
Which also has to do with the concept of paying what the market will bear, not to mention, the up and down worlds of inflation and recession. Which, according to the news, we are in. We don't know if the soap market will bear a high salary for Hall or not. If companies who pay for commercials cut back on their advertising, and if shows are cutting salaries for their established vets, why does it seem that a few people think others are silly in believing the world isn't going to throw money at Hall?

Plus, since Sindacco is NOT from the U.S., you might want to consider that he doesn't know about the US free enterprise concept. But then again, he might surprise you. I would venture to say, should a show consider hiring her, it's probably a happy medium between the Queen of the Vets salary and a lowly newbie salary. In my humble opinion, of course.
