Unexpected GAME OF THRONES Star Made The Most Money


In everyone’s mind, Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow are the characters who made the most money from Game of Thrones. But it’s not what it looks like. Scroll down and find the GOT character who made the most money. 

  1. 1 Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei) — $1 million


    Nathalie Emmanuel’s character, Missandei, made her first appearance in season 3 and almost instantly earned love from some adoring fans. Over the course of 5 seasons, she evolved from a slave into Daenerys’s right hand. For all the seasons, Nathalie earned about $1 million. This is very good money for an actress who is not playing a main role.


  2. 2 Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy) — $2 million


    Theon Greyjoy’s character has been on the show since the first season. During season 8, he changed a lot and moved from a category C actor to a category B actor. In the final season, actor Alfie Allen received about $100 thousand per episode and earned about $2 million for the entire show.


  3. 3 Conleth Hill (Varys) — $2 million


    Varys is another character that has been a part of the show since season 1. The British actor Conleth Hill’s earnings were about $100 thousand per episode in seasons 7-8. Conleth Hill earned around $2 million for the entire show.


  4. 4 Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) — $3 million


    Brienne of Tarth, the first Lord Commander of the King’s Guard and the first Lady Night appeared in season 2. According to Celebrity Net Worth, English actress Gwendoline Christie who portrayed Brienne of Tarth earned around $3 million for all seasons combined. This seems to be a good amount considering the fact that before the show, the actress wasn’t famous at all.


  5. 5 Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont) — $3 million


    Jorah Mormont, a knight who was banished from Westeros appeared back in season 1. But he was always a supporting character. Scottish actor Iain Glen managed to earn around $3 million thanks to Game of Thrones.


  6. 6 Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) — $4 million


    Isaac Hempstead Wright was only 10 years old when he joined the show as Bran Stark. Now, he is 19 years old and Game of Thrones has brought him around $4 million. According to some recent data, in seasons 7 and 8, the actor earned $175 thousand per episode.


  7. 7 Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) — $6 million


    Sansa Stark is one of the key characters of the show and a fan-favorite. Not very long ago, actress Sophie Turner earned $175 thousand per episode, but in the final season, her earnings increased to about $210 thousand per episode. Turner recently told Harper’s Bazaar that her earnings were way lower than Kit Harrington’s, but she was totally okay with that since he had way more screen time and a lot of nighttime work.


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


    Maisie Williams also came to the set as a teenager. For 8 seasons, her earnings grew from $150 thousand per episode to $210 thousand per episode. In this interview, Maisie said that in the very beginning of Game of Thrones, she just wanted to make enough money for a laptop. Now, she can buy any laptop she wants because Game of Thrones has earned her $6 million.


  9. 9 Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell) — $6 million


    Margaery Tyrell was a supporting character on the show, but this didn’t stop her from becoming a fan-favorite and earning a lot of money. She appeared in season 2 and she was one of the most interesting characters until she died in season 6. Natalie Dormer earned around $6 million. The fact that she earned just as much as Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams might be surprising. But the thing is that all these actresses are considered B actresses. The creators designed a special payment system so that all actors were split into 3 groups: A, B, and C. And all of them were paid accordingly.


  10. 10 Rory McCann (Sandor Clegane) — $6 million


    Sandor Clegane, also known as The Hound, appeared in season 1. The character went through a lot of changes and by the end of the show, he was more or less a positive character. The show earned Scottish actor Rory McCann around $6 million. He was also in group B.


  11. 11 Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) — $9 million


    Jon Snow became one of the main characters of the show and he has millions of fans. But it hasn’t always been like that. Before 2013, Kit Harrington’s character was not the most popular and the actor didn’t start making good money until season 5 — which was about $300 thousand per episode. In season 7, he earned $500 thousand per episode, and in season 8 — $ 1.2 million.


  12. 12 Kit Harington (Jon Snow) — $12 million


    Jon Snow became one of the main characters of the show and he has millions of fans. But it hasn’t always been like that. Before 2013, Kit Harrington’s character was not the most popular and the actor didn’t start making good money until season 5 — which was about $300 thousand per episode. In season 7, he earned $500 thousand per episode, and in season 8 — $ 1.2 million.


  13. 13 Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) — $13 million


    Daenerys Targaryen, Khaleesi, the Mother of Dragons and Breaker of Chains is the central character of Game of Thrones. We could say that Emilia Clarke’s career started from this show. Just like Kit Harrington, the actress demanded a raise of payment per episode up to $500 thousand in season 7. In the final season, Clarke received more than $1 million per episode, just like all the other key actors. Last year, Emilia Clarke told Vanity Fair that she was paid as much as her friends.


  14. 14 Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) — $15 million


    Peter Dinklage who portrayed Tyrion Lannister was quite a popular actor even before Game of Thrones started. But despite this, his earnings, just like Lena Headey’s, were $150 thousand per episode. After the negotiation process with the HBO channel, this amount was increased to $300 thousand, and then it rose to $1.2 million per episode, just like all the other A-list actors.


  15. 15 Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) — $16 million


    Jaime Lannister is another key character that fans have loved since season 1. The earnings of Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in this role grew several times and by the final season, he was making $1.2 million per episode. Coster-Waldau is considered to be one of the richest actors in Game of Thrones.
