Frozen actress Spencer Lacey Ganus's payment saga has had a happy ending after it was revealed she has been paid an additional $10,000 (£6,404) to add to the initial $926 (£587) fee she received.

OK, it's still only a teeny tiny fraction of $1.2 billion the monster Disney hit has made so far.

But it's not bad for just ONE DAY'S work for a 15-year-old, which is all it took for the actress to voice Frozen character Elsa as a teenager.

Last week, gossip site TMZ reported that Spencer made only a paltry $926 for playing young Elsa.

But now, the same site has shed more light on their story and revealed that the star was actually paid an additional $10,000 in residual checks for her part, which she has put into her college fund.

And her relationship with the studio is so good, she will be doing more voice over work for them.

The initial payment was revealed when her contract was filed in court earlier this month.

Spencer, who has also featured in similarly chilly films Ice Age and Happy Feet, only had a few lines in the animated blockbuster.

Broadway actress and singer Idina Menzel - now best-known for belting out the film's hit song Let It Go - voiced grown-up Elsa.

The role of young Elsa was played by Eva Bella.

Frozen, based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale The Snow Queen, overtook Toy Story 3 in March to become the highest grossing animated film of all time.

It grossed a record $1.2 billion at the global box office, making a huge profit on its relatively modest $150 million budget.

Let It Go, performed by Idina Menzel as Elsa, has also become a chart hit in countries across the world including the US and the UK.

Frozen was in the UK box office top 10 for more than three months and now ranks as the 10th highest grossing film in cinema history.
