Hollywood actors overwhelmingly approved a new, hard-fought deal with studios to end a crippling months-long strike, the union said Tuesday.

The union, known as SAG-AFTRA, said 78 percent of members who voted approved the multiyear contract, while nearly 22 percent opposed it.

"This is a golden age for SAG-AFTRA, and our union has never been more powerful," union president Fran Drescher said in a statement.
