Harry Potter
I used to do voiceovers for things, and, since I was only about 12, £50 for a day's hard work seemed ridiculously high. That was until Electronic Arts employed me for some silly Harry Potter video game or other.

10 lines of voiceover, each 4 times. So altogether about 20 minutes. Then repeated about a week later, another 20 minutes. So far, so good

First pay cheque comes through - £250. Fanbloodytastic i thought. Next week, £250 again, for the second session. Result! I'm the richest 12 year old in the world, surely! Week after, a contract arrives. If I sign and give EA all the rights to use my voice, i get another £500. At this point I think they've got to be joking, but they're as good as their word

The only bad side is that I'll probably never earn £1000 in 40 minutes again. Ever. Ah well, those were the good old days, eh
