The list, which only accounts for the core actors, sees Kit Harington making $500,000 USD per episode up from his previous $300,000 USD per episode during the filming of seasons 5 and 6. Before then, he was relatively unknown, which means his pay per episode would have been significantly lower. Over to the Mother of Dragons, Emilia Clarke (who recently revealed she battled two near-fatal aneurysms during the show’s first two seasons), also brings in $500,000 USD per episode. Along with her numerous motion picture roles and ad campaigns, Clarke’s current net worth is around $13 million USD.
Others also making $500,000 USD per episode are Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. On the other-hand, it’s reported that Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner bank in $150,000 USD per episode.
