The Undoing’s Noah Jupe, 15, netted an eye-popping $600k for his role in the thriller


The Undoing star Noah Jupe netted an eye-popping $600k (£454k) for his part in the show, where he played Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant’s son. 

In documents seen by TMZ, it has been revealed that aged just 15, the child star has scooped the incredible sum as well as five business class tickets for both him and his parents while the psychological thriller was being filmed. 

Haling from an acting background, the British actor’s mother Katy Cavanagh, is an actress, who is best known for portraying the role of Julie Carp in the ITV soap opera Coronation Street from 2008 to 2015.

It was revealed in the minor’s contract filed at L.A. County Court, that Noah, who plays the Henry Fraser, the son of Grace and Jonathan Fraser, earned $100k (£76k) per episode for the wildly popular HBO show.

He was also given $100 (£76) per diem and a $350 (£265) weekly Uber allowance. MailOnline has contacted a representative for Noah for comment. 

Henry’s own rise to fame comes after it was revealed to stunned fans that Henry’s mother is a star in her own right. 

Noah’s venture into acting no doubt comes from the family’s links with television, with his father Chris starting out as an actor before working as a filmmaker on the educational drama Watch Over Me. 

Katy, 46, meanwhile, played Julie, who was originally introduced as a new girlfriend of Kirk Sutherland (Andrew Whyment), and in a later storyline she was revealed to be Eileen Grimshaw’s (Sue Cleaver) half-sister.

Fans took to Twitter following the revelation about Noah’s following in Katy’s famous footsteps. One viewer wrote: ‘I think I speak for us all when I say the most shocking news of 2020 is that The Undoing Henry is Julie Carp from Corrie’s son?! I’m done’.

The teen has already an impressive acting portfolio having starred in thriller A Quiet Place, The Night Manager, Holmes and Watson, Ford v Ferrari and Honey Boy. 

Henry played a pivotal role in the plot, when at the end of episode Grace (Nicole Kidman) discovered a mallet – the potential murder weapon – hidden in a violin case in his bedroom.

Episode six started with Henry confessing he discovered the weapon in an outdoor fireplace at the Fraser family beach house, which was still bloodied, so he decided to run it through their dishwasher (twice!) to clean it off. 

The child admitted to his shocked mother that he was only trying to cover for his father, who he was convinced killed Elena. 

Noah, full name Noah Casford Jupe, was born in Islington, north London, and is the oldest child, with a younger sister Jemma and brother Jacobi. His family moved to Stockport, Manchester where he grew up

Noah was nominated at London Film Critics’ Circle in the category of ‘Young British/Irish performer of the year’ in 2018 & 2019.

In 2018, he also got nominated at Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society in the category of ‘Best Performance by an Actor 23 and Under’ for A Quiet Place.

After filming The Undoing last year, Noah discussed his need to return home to Manchester for some normality – with trips to the Trafford Centre being his hot spot. 

He told Dazed: ‘I have no friends. (laughs) I’m joking, I’m joking – I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have a reality to go back to. I mean, although I love acting, it’s exhausting and I need time off to go home….

‘I’ve just done eight months in New York and I need to go and hang out with my friends. I kind of like that I’m based here in England, because the flights separate the two worlds. But making sure that you have a place to go back to, so you can gather your health, I need that. 

Speaking about where he hangs out, he went on: ‘In Manchester, we always ended up at the Trafford Centre (shopping mall)…

‘It’s a bit boring, but everyone goes there. I guess in London it’s like going to Westfield or somewhere, watching the guy make that rolled ice cream that everyone is going on about. Soon I’ll be (back at work), like, ‘I wish I was back in Westfield with those ice creams!’
