Dyer's Struggle On Stage Wage

British actor DANNY DYER can't wait for his tenure on the London stage to end - because he is sick of the low wages. The Football Factory star is earning less than $800 (GBP400)-a-week for his part in Harold Pinter's The Homecoming at the ­Almeida Theatre in the British capital. But the small pay package isn't the only aspect of theatre the 30-year-old is struggling with - he insists repeating the same lines night after night is boring. He says, "I've got one week left (of the show) and I'll be honest with you, I've had enough. I struggle with saying the same thing every night to be honest. "When you make movies you're spoon-fed everything and then you've got to tread the boards for 300-odd quid (pounds) a week. You have to earn your stripes. But it's killed me money-wise."
