Actor Zach Ward reveals how much he makes from A Christmas Story. 

The actor gets paid in Canadian funds

You might shoot your eye out when you hear how much Zach Ward makes off A Christmas Story. Ward, now 47, was 13 when he played bully Scut Farkus in the classic flick filled with one-liners.

“You’re going to be so disappointed,” Ward told Page Six. “It’s basically about $1,800 every two years … and it comes in in Canadian money because we shot in Canada.” Ward  puts the money aside in a special account for his mother to have just in case she ever needs it.

You got your ass kicked by Ralphie

He still gets recognized in public for the role.

“So many people come up to me and are like, ‘You got your ass kicked by Ralphie,’ and it makes them so happy,” Ward said. “I think they’re connecting to themselves as that little kid who had a bully and when they saw Scut Farkus get beaten up, they were just like, ‘Yeah!’ They greet me with a lot of love. It’s usually very kind.”

Most recently, Ward guest starred on the latest season of American Horror Story. He also works with All Sports Market and Global Sports Financial Exchange Inc. The companies create exchanges that authorize fans to purchase and trade shares of sports teams.
