'Frozen' Actress Was Paid Scant $926 for Role as Teenage Elsa

The "Frozen" actress who voiced the teenage Elsa character in the highest-grossing animated film of all time reportedly received only $926.20 for her work.

As TMZ reported, 15-year-old Spencer Lacey Ganus only had a few lines that made it to the final cut of the movie, but considering the film grossed over $1.2 billion, that means her cut comes down to a measly 0.000077 percent.

Ganus shared her voice work with Eva Bella, who plays Elsa as a child, and the now wildly famous Broadway actress and singer Idina Menzel, who played the grown up Elsa, and performed the film's runaway hit song, "Let It Go."

It's not clear if Ganus' is content with her compensation or not, and reports that she was suing Disney over the matter were later debunked.

Someone who is suing Disney, however, is author Isabella Tanikumi, who says the movie is a ripoff of her book, "Living My Truth," and lists 18 examples that show similarities between her book and "Frozen" in her filing.

ABC affiliate WWSB noted that Disney famously shortchanged the late Robin Williams over his compensation for "Aladdin," where he played the Genie in the lamp. That dispute lasted more than decade, and much of the knock-down-drag-out fight was very public.

Thus far, Disney has not publicly commented on the nature of Ganus' compensation.
