247

It has now been two months since Hollywood’s SAG-AFTRA strikes kicked off, causing disruption across the entertainment industry.

Members of the Screen Actor’s Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) have been campaigning for better pay and other improvements since July 14.

Actors are now calling for an 11 per cent pay rise, among other demands linked to the use of AI and streaming.

The union, which represents around 160,000 actors, has paralysed a large amount of production and filming.

They joined the Writers Guild of America (WGA), who had previously walked out on May 2.

More than two months into the industrial action, the stalemate shows no signs of letting up.

Instead, strikes appear to continue across studios in the US and overseas.

Hundreds of prominent faces have been spotted showing their support for the SAG-AFTRA strikes.

Most recently, Barbie star Margot Robbie was spotted at a SAG-AFTRA march with a placard.

She marched from Netflix studios to Paramount Pictures during a SAG-AFTRA strike this week.

Wearing a union T-shirt and carrying a sign in support of the union action, she appeared in high spirits as she joined other protestors on Tuesday.

Robbie had previously told Sky News at a Barbie premiere that she would ‘absolutely stand by’ a strike.

Margot has just finished promoting her latest movie, in which the star is reported to have received a salary of £40 million.
