9. Stunt Double
Stunt doubles’ annual earnings can fluctuate greatly depending upon how many gigs they land within a year, but the Screen Actors Guild, which sets standards for pay and treatment of theater based jobs currently has the daily stunt performer wage listed as $880. If you only worked five days a week for say eight weeks at this rate, you would make over $35,000 for those eight weeks alone.
Dangers to consider in this field include personal injury while performing or preparing for a stunt, potential exposure to extreme weather, and risk of injury from equipment malfunctioning on set.
