Spencer Lacey Ganus, the actress who voiced the teenage Elsa in Disney's hit movie Frozen, was paid less than $1,000 (£634) for her work, it has been revealed.

Ganus voiced a teenage Elsa in some of the opening scenes for the Disney movie and only received $926 for her part – a measly 0.000077% of the films $1.2bn gross.

TMZ reported that the actress, who has also held parts in Ice Age and Happy Feet, only signed up for a one-day guaranteed payment for her participation in the movie.

Ganus voiced several lines as the teenage Elsa with child Elsa played by Eva Bella and the older version voiced by broadway star Idina Menzel.

The film was made with a budget of $150m and spent three months in the top ten of the UK box office, helping it rake in a record $1.2bn.

What will make Ganus' paycheque seem even more significant is that Disney has just announced record financial results.

Guardians of The Galaxy and Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie, helped boost revenues by 8% to $12.39bn (€10bn, £7.8bn) for the quarter ending 27 September.

The announcement came as part of Disney's full-year results in which it brought in a record revenue of $48.8bn "reflecting strong home entertainment and theatrical performance of Frozen," read the statement.
