This is how much the Game of Thrones cast gets paid per episode

If you haven't been keeping up with Game of Thrones then you have seriously been living under a rock. The series, which has been a smash hit since it's initial release, is right in the heart of it's juiciest story line making it's fans eager to watch and keep up with each of it's episodes week to week. 

But all that aside, you would not believe how much the cast gets paid. The salaries of the biggest stars were just released, and let's just say all of the Game of Thrones stars don't ever need to work another day in their life. Hello, are you looking for anymore cast members?

Kit Harrington, Emilia Clarke, Lena Heady, Nikolaj Coster-Walday and Peter Dinklage each get paid a whopping $500,000 for every instalment of the HBO hit. So after doing some maths, that means in season 7 each of the cast members made $3.5 million - and that is only from 7 episodes. 

This then put them in third place on Variety's list of highest-paid TV actors following Robert DeNiro who gets $775,000 per episode and Mark Harmon who gets $525,000 per episode. Kevin Spacey, Claire Danes and Kerry Washington are also very high on this list which has us seriously considering packing up and moving to Hollywood.
