Skeem Saam actors are some of the most famous people in Mzansi as the telenovela is one of the leading shows on SABC 1.
The talented star-studded cast of the soapie's salaries have been reportedly revealed. Their salaries are calculated according to the number of scenes they appear in and their roles in the show.
As expected, the actors with leading roles take home more than those who are supporting actors and don't appear in the show on a daily basis.

The publication also reported that Meikie, MaNtuli, John and Lelo get paid between R30 000 and R40 000.
Leeto, Rachel, Tbose, Marothi and Leshole's salaries range from R20 000 to R30 000 on a monthly basis. Other actors, including supporting actors, earn about R15 000 to R25 000 monthly.
