View Full Version : mentioning characters names

if they get a character to mention another character that is not in the episode does the actor that is not in the episode get any royalties for this. I read on here once that they do but im not sure if that is true or not. Could someone that knows clear this up for me please. This episode reminded me as Teyla mentioned major marks by name but Cadwelll was not mentioned.

I don't think so, since characters pretty much belong to the creators, not to the actors that portray them.

I have another question though, spawned from this one: do actors get royalties if there are reused scenes (flashbacks, etcetera) featuring them?

Yes they do, but at a lesser rate.

The writer who came up with the character gets royalties, not the actor(s) who portrayed said character.
