Shameless’: Emmy Rossum Resolves Salary Standoff, Paving Way for Season 8
Emmy Rossum’s salary standoff has come to an end.
The Shameless star, who had been holding up the Showtime dramedy’s season eight renewal, has come to terms with producers Warner Bros. Television on a new contract.
“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!” Rossum tweeted Wednesday, days after we reported that she was holding out for equal pay with fellow star William H. Macy — and more — after years of being paid less than her male counterpart.
