Priyanka Chopra Eighth on Forbes Highest Paid TV Actress List

Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra has secured the eighth spot in Forbes list of highest paid TV actresses’, with earnings worth $10 million among the top 10 big earners of the small screen.

This is the second consecutive time Chopra has fallen on the Forbes list.

The Forbes Magazine describes Chopra as a "Bollywood crossover star" with a worldwide appeal, allowing her to draw revenue from both the US and Indian audience.

Her lead role in American TV show Quantico, for which she has won two People's Choice Awards and her Hollywood debut Baywatch alongside renowned actor Dwayne Johnson adds to her fame.

However, it's Priyanka brand endorsements that make her the most money. Forbes writes, "Her most consistent money-maker? Endorsements. Chopra has seven-figure deals with the likes of Pantene, Lyf Mobile and Nirav Modi."

The 35-year-old actor ranks ahead of Emmy-nominated Robin Wright of House of Cards. Wright is also famous for her characters in Hollywood blockbusters like Wonder Woman, Justice League and Blade Runner. Actress Pauley Parette, likely known as the forensic scientist in NCIS, ranks the last on this year's Forbes List.
