GAME OF THRONES has now wrapped for good, with a new figure on the Iron Throne and a conclusion to a nearly 10-year-long fantastical journey. Who is the highest paid actor on Game of Thrones?

The famous Game of Thrones series ended a few weeks ago, but it remains one of the main topics of conversation. It is no secret that some fans have been disappointed by this eighth season, to the point of creating a petition to change the end. For his part, the author of the book, George R. R. R. Martin, had promised that the end of the saga would be different from that of the series. However, one thing we can talk about is the financial results of the program.

1. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister): $16 million

Jaime Lannister is a key character, appreciated by fans since the first season. The income of Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau also increased several times and reached $1.2 million per episode at the end of the season. Today, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is considered one of the richest actors in Game of Thrones.

2. Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister): $15 million

Peter Dinklage, who plays the role of Tyrion Lannister, was a fairly well-known actor before participating in Game of Thrones. Initially, her fees, like Lena Headey, were $150,000. After negotiations with the HBO television channel, the amount was increased to $300,000 and eventually to $1.2 million per episode, like all category A actors.

3. Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen): $13 million

Daenerys Targaryen, Khaleesi, Mother of Dragons and Chain Breaker, is the main character in Game of Thrones. Emilia Clarke's career really started with this series. Like Kit Harington, the actress had a salary increase, it was $500,000 per episode until the seventh season. In the end, Emilia Clarke received more than a million dollars, like the other emblematic actors. "They pay me the same as my friends," the young woman said in Vanity Fair last year.

4. Harington Kit (Jon Snow): $12 million

Jon Snow has become one of the main characters and the darling of millions of viewers. But this has not always been the case. Until 2014, Kit Harington was not a famous actor and he only started receiving a large amount of money in the fifth season, nearly $300,000 per episode. During Season 7, its revenues increased to $500,000 and for the last season, they reached $1.2 million.

5. Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister): $9 million

Lena Headey is one of the top five stars of Game of Thrones and belongs to Group A. The character of Cersei Lannister is considered the main villain of the series.

Lena Headey's fees reached $1.2 million per episode during the eighth season.

6. Rory McCann (Sandor Clegane): $6 million

7. Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell): $6 million

Margaery Tyrell was a secondary character in the series, but that didn't stop her from being one of the fans' favourites and winning a respectable sum. She appeared in the second season and continued in Game of Thrones until her death in the seventh season. Natalie Dormer's income was approximately $6 million. It seems surprising that she made as much money as Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner. But the latter are part of Group B. The creators of the series had developed a payment system where the actors were divided into three groups: A, B and C. Their salaries depended on their group.

8. Maisie Williams (Arya Stark): $6 million

Maisie Williams also joined the filming when she was just a teenager. In the space of 8 seasons, his fees have increased from $150,000 to $210,000. In an interview, Maisie said that at the beginning of Game of Thrones, she just wanted to earn money to buy a laptop. Now she can buy all the high-tech products available on the market, since the series has brought her $6 million.

9. Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark): $6 million

Sansa Stark is one of the main characters and one of the favorite of the series' followers. A while ago, actress Sophie Turner made $175,000 per episode, but for this last season, her income has increased to $210,000. Recently, she told Harper's Bazaar magazine that her comrade Kit Harington's salary was much higher than hers, but she saw no harm in it because he spent much more time on screen and made night shoots.

10. Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran Stark): $4 million

Isaac was only 10 years old when he joined the cast to play the role of Bran Stark. Now he is 19 years old and Game of Thrones has earned him nearly $4 million. According to the latest information, during seasons 7 and 8, the actor won $175,000 per episode.

11. Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont): $3 million

12. Gwendoline Christie (Brienne de Torth): $3 million

Brienne de Torth, the first female knight and Lord Commander of the Royal Guard, made her appearance in the second season. According to information from Celebrity Net Worth, the English actress Gwendoline Christie, who played Brienne, won nearly $3 million for the work she did. A considerable sum considering that before joining this project, the actress was still unknown to the general public.

13. Conleth Hill (Varys): $2 million

Varys is a character who has been present since the launch of the series. The fees of British actor Conleth Hill also averaged $100,000 per episode for seasons 7 and 8. The total amount received by Conleth Hill for the Game of Thrones series is estimated at $2 million.
