PeeCee makes it to top 10 Forbes' World's Highest-Paid TV Actresses list

Priyanka Chopra has landed herself on the Forbes List of World's Highest-Paid TV Actresses in 2017, securing the eighth spot with $10 million among the top 10 big earners of the small screen. This is the second consecutive time Chopra has fallen on the Forbes list. Forbes describes Chopra as a "Bollywood crossover star" with a worldwide appeal, enabling her to draw revenue from both the US and Indian audience. The actress’ international fandom grew with her lead role in American TV show Quantico, for which she has won two People's Choice Awards - the latest one being in 2017 where she received the favourite dramatic TV actress trophy.

PeeCee was also a presenter at the Oscars, and she starred alongside Dwayne Johnson in her Hollywood debut Baywatch while she will soon be seen as a judge on American reality TV series Project Runway alongside Heidi Klum. However, it's Priyanka’s brand endorsements that make her the most money; “seven-figure deals with the likes of Pantene, Lyf Mobile and Nirav Modi," acording to Forbes. The 35-year-old actor ranks ahead of Emmy-nominated Robin Wright of House of Cards, and actress Pauley Parette, likely known as the forensic scientist in NCIS. The list also includes Sofia Vergara, Kaley Cuoco, Mindy Kaling, Ellen Pompeo, Mariska Hargitay, Julie Bowen and Kerry Washington.
