Sofia Vergara and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting tied for first place on Forbes' list of World's Highest-Paid Tv Actresses of 2015.

Sofia secured her spot thanks to her famous role as Gloria on Modern Family, while Kaley scored hers with her role as Penny on The Big Bang Theory. Each actress earned a huge sum of $28.5million (approx. RM122million) each.

Frankly, we're not surprised with the results, what with Sofia's endorsement deals with CoverGirl and with Head and Shoulders. She also runs a talent management and entertainment-marketing firm Latin World Entertainment which she co-founded in 1994. This is her fourth consecutive year as Forbes' highest-paid TV actress.

Kaley, on the other hand, caught up to Sofia with her $1million-salary-per-episode at The Big Bang Theory and her endorsement contract with Priceline.com. Other list veterans include Ellen Pompeo of Grey's Anatomy, Mariska Hargitay of Law & Order: SVU and Julianna Margulies of The Good Wife.
