Black Panther child actor Seth Carr, 10, was paid $1,000 a day

He’s in one of the biggest box office smashes of all time.

And now it’s revealed that child actor Seth Carr was paid $1,000 a day for his role as the young Killmonger in Marvel’s Black Panther.

Seth, who is 10, is only on screen for a few minutes but, TMZ reported, he was guaranteed a minimum of $7,654 for the part along with future residuals.

The child version of Michael B. Jordan’s character is seen briefly at the beginning of the movie in a flashback sequence, and again for a longer speaking part later in the film.

It’s not known how many days of work he actually completed.

Despite his young age, he’s already a veteran of the small screen with recurring roles in Amazon’s Bosch series and Nickelodeon’s Knight Squad.
