4. Fight For Equal Pay
In December 2016 Emmy became embroiled in a contract dispute with the producers of Shameless because she wanted to be paid an equal salary to that of her co-star William H. Macy. She also demanded back pay for the difference over the past seven seasons and for a while it was unclear whether or not she would continue with the show. But later on that same month she announced via Twitter that she would be back for season 8, implying that the pay dispute had been resolved – although she didn’t elaborate on the topic. Her Twitter post read, “”Playing Fiona Gallagher has been one of the great privileges of my life. I’m so happy to continue w my SHAMELESS family! Back to work in May!” Good for you Emmy!
