With many actors like Kristian Alfonso, Greg Vaughan, and now Victoria Konefal announcing their departures, fans are now asking this same question: is the cast being asked to take pay cuts? Here’s what you need to know.

NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Are Cast Members Getting Pay Cuts?
In other words, Kristian Alfonso, Greg Vaughan, and Victoria Konefal might have all decided to leave because they were asked to take a hiatus from the show, which according to some is like a pay cut from the show.
Many comments have included, “When mainstream outlets like Deadline are covering the departure of an ingenue from a US soap that’s been a ratings cellar dweller for a decade now, you can’t help but get the feeling that even they know something sketchy is going on at Days,” along with, “It’s just a fact of life that Days doesn’t have the budget to compete with the other daytime soaps.
And every year, it gets a little worse, so unfortunately, difficult and unpopular decisions have to be made and even when I hate them (nooooo, Will), I understand them. So, in order to survive, they have to TRY and raise ratings, while balancing a small budget.”
Another fan wrote, “You know it all boils down to money. That’s why they released all the actors from their contracts last November. New contract negotiations mean a chance for the producers to cut salaries. Asking Kristian Alfonso to take 5 months off from the show is the equivalent of a pay cut.
I’m sure they wanted Greg Vaughan, Victoria and Camilla Banus to take huge cuts as well and they all said thanks but no thanks. Unfortunately I think Galen Garing, Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith were just fired.”
