Young Sheldon hit the small screen in 2017 and is still going strong.

The popular spin-off of The Big Bang Theory stars Iain Armitage as a younger version of Sheldon Cooper, the beloved character from the original sitcom. Starting at the age of nine, Armitage has spent nearly half of his current life as young Sheldon.

And six years later, as he approaches his fifteenth birthday, Iain is already a multimillion-dollar star.

Young Sheldon Cooper is still Iain Armitage's biggest role. And given the success of the show, it is a big role. No matter how busy he is on the set of the TBBT prequel, Armitage still takes care of his education.

According to his agent, Jamie Pillet, it is hard for the young man to balance acting and school, but he does it masterfully and does his best at both. Nevertheless, acting seems to be very rewarding for the young actor.

When Young Sheldon started, Iain was paid $30,000 per episode at the age of nine. Twenty-two episodes into the first season, Armitage must have earned $660000 – a very large sum of money for a child. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Armitage's salary increased to $3200 and $32500 per episode in seasons 2 and 3, respectively.

It is quite common for actors to be paid more with each season of a show, with the highest salaries for the final seasons. For example, by season 10 of The Big Bang Theory, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, and Kaley Cuoco each were earning one million dollars per episode.

Although CNW doesn't disclose how much Iain Armitage is being paid for the sixth season of Young Sheldon, it's likely that the young actor is earning much more than his original $30,000 per episode, as his net worth is estimated at six million dollars. Seeing that Young Sheldon ends in one season, we can imagine that Iain Armitage's salary is high.

However, Armitage is not the highest paid child actor in Hollywood. The stars of Stranger Things on Netflix are said to receive $25,000 to $30,000 per episode. Sure, Iain is younger than Millie Bobby Brown and Finn Wolfhard and has a long way to go, but he is already a very expensive actor. Don't be surprised if his net worth continues to rise!
