Report: Game of Thrones Stars Snag Massive Season 8 Payday

Game of Thrones Recap Season 6 Episode 9

The windfall is coming.

Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) have signed deals which would give them a hefty pay raise in future seasons, our sister site Deadline reports.

The actors will be paid north of $500,000 an episode for Season 7 and Season 8, which is not yet officially ordered, but likely to be the final one. They previously earned closer to $300,000 per episode.

While the new deals help secure the actors’ availability, they do not guarantee that all of their characters will survive to see the show’s final hours.
