Game of Thrones

The cast of Game of Thrones are expected to get paid $500,000 per episode.

Game of Thrones is one of the most popular shows on television. As soon as an episode hits the internet, millions of people tune in legally and what happens in the medieval drama. So it only goes to show that the cast of the Game of Thrones get a larger paycheck.

That's an increase of nearly 100%, as the cast was originally paid $300,000 per episode for Season 6.
I hear mainstays Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Emilia Clarke(Daenerys Targaryen) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) will all be paid north of $500,000 an episode for Season 7, which has been officially picked up, and Season 8, which is widely expected. HBO has not specified the size of the order for Season 7, but speculation has been that both Season 7 and Season 8 would be shorter than the standard for the show 10 episodes, possibly seven episodes (Season 7) and six episodes (Season 8).
However, a larger paycheck does not mean the entire cast will survive until the end of Season 7. In fact, the last episodes are yet to be written. Via Deadline.com Related: What do you think? Share with us your thoughts in the comments below.
