The actress, who was an unknown before being cast as Kate Pearson on the NBC show, has plenty to smile about going into the third season of This Is Us.

She and four other main stars have secured huge pay increases to continue on the drama, The Hollywood Reporter said Tuesday.

Chrissy, along with Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown and Justin Hartley will get $250,000 per episode, making an 18-episode total of $4.5 million each.

In the first two seasons, Chrissy earned just $40,000 per episode, according to THR.com.

Last season, Chrissy’s character Kate tied the knot with beau Toby, played by Chris Sullivan.

According to writer and executive producer Elizabeth Berger, Kate and Toby will face a number of challenges in the first half of the new season.

‘Obviously last season we showed their journey to have a family…that’s a journey that we’re going to be continuing this season, and there’s going to be the stresses of your first year of marriage. It’s something we’re going to be building toward,’ Berger told EW.com back in March.
