The star of the long-running medical drama, which first aired in 2005, will overtake Game of Thrones cast members Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey who now all net $500,000 (£391,000) per episode compared with Pompeo's $575,000 (£415,000).

When accounting for licensing and endorsement deals, however, Forbes reports that Sofia Vergara of Modern Family has an annual take-home of $41.5m (£29.2). She just signed on for a 15th and 16th season of Grey's Anatomy and will earn $575,000 an episode, earning more than $20m a year that will make her the highest-paid actress on a primetime drama.

Ellen Pompeo as Meredith Grey in a promo. With a contract earning her about Dollars 20 million a year, Ellen has also been signed for the 15th and 16th season, though they have not been officially ordered by the makers. Ellen said that there are many actresses and even actors who would be ideal in a show for one or two seasons only to fade away later.

Pompeo called Patrick Dempsey's exit after his character was killed off in 2015 "a defining moment, deal-wise".

In a very candid interview published Wednesday, Pompeo talked about money, being bold and knowing her worth "in the hope of setting an example for others as women in Hollywood seize a new moment of empowerment and opportunity". "Can you be good 14 years later?"

"They could always use him as leverage against me - "We don't need you; we have Patrick" - which they did for years", she says.

Pompeo also shared that she was stunned about the producers' hurry to replace Derek's character in the show.

Jeanne Shaheen replied when asked if Democrats have enough support to block the four-week continuing resolution. But some Republicans have said they will not vote for any CR because of the burden it places on the military .

"And I'll tell you, sitting in rooms full of Oscar-winning actresses listening to how they've been preyed upon and assaulted is frightening", she said. "It looked like her letting me be the highest-paid woman on television, letting me be a producer on this show, letting me be a co-executive producer on the spinoff and signing off on the deal that the studio gave me, which is unprecedented".

"At one point, I asked for $5,000 more than [Patrick Dempsey] just on principle, because the show is Grey's Anatomy and I'm Meredith Grey". Ellen said that she felt this was a deserved contract. But I also feel completely comfortable saying that I walked into that room batting the s-- out of my eyelashes. "You feel conflicted but then you figure, 'I'm not going to let a guy drive me out of my own house, '" she added. I assume tomorrow everyone's going to hate us.

"These poor girls have no real money, and the studio is making a fortune and parading them like ponies on a red carpet", she said.

And so Pompeo got pilot commitments and lot space for her production company as part of her Grey's contract.

"It's the beginning of a movement, and it's so special to me for so many reasons".

"An actor is the least powerful person on set, so I don't care about chasing roles".

"She loves to sit in the director's chair with the headphones on yelling "Action" and 'Cut, ' " Pompeo said of her daughter.
