Actors Matthew Fox and Evangeline Lilly have reportedly launched a bid to increase their pay by up to $70,000 (GBP35,000) per episode for their work on hit U.S. TV show Lost.
The series' stars are alleged to be in negotiations with ABC Studios to increase their rate to a reported $150,000 (GBP75,000) per show.
And the pair's bidding war has reportedly prompted other actors in the series to seek out a raise.
Cast members have reportedly banked an estimated $80,000 (GBP40,000) to $90,000 (GBP45,000) for each show prior to the negotiations.
