Game Of Thrones’ Highest Paid Cast Members Have Been Revealed


Game of Thrones is back – and we couldn’t be more excited about it.

As if the Internet wasn’t foreboding enough with the imminent threat of Avengers: Endgame leaks, HBO’s hit fantasy series has reclaimed its rightful spot at the forefront of television, bringing about a tidal wave of wild fan theories and potential spoilers about the Night King and his unclear origins.

Yes, it’s fair to say that Game of Thrones mania has swept the nation – nay, the world – and as the much beloved show gears up for its sure to be epic conclusion, we’re now learning of just how much money its stars are bringing home this season. Actually, these numbers are reportedly from season 7, but we imagine that the actors are still earning just as much, if not more, for this last batch of episodes.

But just how much are your favorite cast members being paid? Well, Kit Harington (who plays Jon Snow), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) all take home a cool $500,000 per installment. Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), and Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), meanwhile, are believed to be earning $175,000 per episode.

Furthermore, recent court documents hinted that Coster-Waldau may have actually gotten a raise this year, with Business Insider saying he might be making $1.07 million per episode, which would be a considerable hike up from his pay of $500,000 for season 7. There’s no word on if any of his co-stars received similar bumps, but if the Jamie Lannister actor did indeed get a raise, then we imagine that some of the other key players did, too.

In any case, it’s clear that the cast of Game of Thones are making good money for their time spent in Westeros and with only a handful of episodes to go before it all ends, we can’t wait to see what they’ve got in store for us.
